What the heck is wearable tech? Fitbit Charge HR
At first, when my pals at Best Buy Canada gave me the Fitbit Charge HR to try out, I was kind of shocked. I mean, I’ve previously discussed my obsession with my Fitbit—I use it everyday. Am I not exercising enough for you, Best Buy? But then I realized that, as usual, my tech savvy friends are opening my eyes to another life-enhancer! And, although I love my Fitbit, I think I’m IN LOVE with the Charge HR.
What the heck is wearable tech? Part 3: Train your pet using wearables
Hey, it’s Debra again. You don’t want to be THAT neighbour, whose dog has a full-on bark-appaloosa concert every time the wind blows.The wonderful scientists, and general smarty-pants, over at Motorola have now created the MOTOPET 200. It’s a new, gentler system to train dogs using “static correction” using vibrations rather than a shock collar. MOTOPET 200 is lightweight and waterproof and looks cute on almost every dog.

What the Heck is Wearable Tech? Part 2: Wearables are not just for athletes
Hi Gang, Debra here! There comes a point when you just want to scream “WHAT IS A NORMAL WAY TO GET HEALTHY?” Now, the rational part of my brain knows that the best way to get healthy is to simply eat less and move more. (WHO KNEW?!) But how much do I need to move and not eat? I’m not a doctor—I just like wearing lab coats. I’m a regular human trying to be healthier. SO! My peeps at Best Buy hooked me up with some more of their Wearable Tech. This week I got to try out the new FitBit Charge. This has changed everything.

Hi. I’m Debra DiGiovanni, comedian and self-proclaimed anxiety ridden technophobe! Or, I was until recently. You see, the gang at Best Buy came to me and asked if I wanted to be the person who introduces Canada to some new wearable technology. Since I’m not a crazy person, I said, “YES PLEASE!” and then I got to meet the MUSE. Read about this fun new way to get your mind to quiet down.
