MOTOACTV Golf Edition

Sometimes you read a title of one of these gadget articles and you still have no idea what the gadget actually is or does. This is one of those times so let me dispel some of the mystery for you.

The MOTOACTV Golf Edition is a GPS golf tracker that also acts as a virtual caddy. No word yet on whether it can be expected to go and find a lost ball for you, but hey, ..

Caddytrek Robot Caddy Follows Like a Puppy

I’m not good at golf. If you tell me to hit the ball somewhere I can absolutely guarantee you it will go anywhere but. Having said that, one of the things I hate more than my own lack of skill is the fact I have to carry the clubs around.

Granted, I haven’t ever done that (I haven’t played golf since my dad took me to the local course about thirty years ago when I was ..

Snap Folding Skateboard

Skateboarding is fun, but carrying it around in places where you can’t ride it can be a drag. Perhaps it was this feedback that motivated the designers of the SNAP skateboard to come up with a skateboard that would be easy to carry, but would not compromise on riding safety or the ability to perform skateboarding tricks.

The SNAP skateboard, made of aluminium, is positioned as the world’s first folding skateboard.

The skateboard comprises of 3 segments ..

Gyroboard Trainer, Improves Strength and Balance

Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll say I have very little stability on two legs. I’m fine on a bike, but strap anything to my feet and I’m virtually guaranteed to fall over within sixty seconds. This is why I don’t go skiing, skateboarding or ice skating.

But I have to admit to still being vaguely curious about the Gyroboard. This looks like a sure way to fall over in the comfort of my own ..

GPS Swimmers Tracker, The FINIS GPS Hydro Tracker

Finis, a California-based aquatic sports company has developed a product called the hydro tracker that uses GPS technology to record where the wearer has been and also to capture performance data.

This device is meant for people who swim in seas and oceans and do not have the advantage of knowing how far they’ve swum because there are no lane markers or clearly-defined lap lengths.

Priced at $130 (£87), you can purchase the hydro tracker from the ..

Finis Swimmers Heart Rate Monitor, Verbal Updates Via Jawbone

Swimming is arguably amongst the best forms of exercise. However, like everything else, everything should be in moderation. The rule “nothing in excess” applies even to swimming. Therefore, those who have medical conditions and yet swim out of passion or simply to gain the health benefits must be careful to ensure they don’t tire their hearts out.

Heart-rate monitors are not a new concept; neither are those that are water-proof and can be used by swimmers. ..

Cardio Fitness Trainer, Swimmer’s Treadmill

Swimming, it is said, is amongst the best forms of exercise. It takes care of your cardio training, as also toning and resistance. The fly in the ointment, though, is that not all of us live in homes that have swimming pools.

The good people at Hammacher Schlemmer have come up with a portable swimming pool that can be set up on a temporary basis in backyards or even garages. Even better, this combines the benefits ..
