What is FitTech? 5 FitTech Products We Find Promising

Mark our words: FitTech is the next biggest thing.

 

It all started off with professional athletes striving for better performance by monitoring different fitness metrics. At the turn of the 21st century, the notion of healthy living swept by the general public like an ineluctable wave. What came with the wave is the realisation that exercising and balanced eating are essential to a long and prosperous life, and slowly but surely – the idea that these aspects of life can actually be quantified using technology, to a large extent.

 

Cue FitTech – the hottest bandwagon everyone is trying to hop on. Still having a fuzzy idea on what exactly FitTech is? Here are 5 FitTech products that we find promising and will give you a better idea on what FitTech is. Basically, they gather data about your body and give you suggestions on how you can tune it up.

1. Lumo Run shorts and leggings

These shorts and leggings have sensors equipped in the waistband that allows the product to measure stride length, pelvic rotation, bounce and other information that is then fed into an app which comes up with coaching tips on how runners can improve their forms and run better and faster. And yes – they are machine washable!

 

2. Soltrackr

Spending a lot of time outdoors and worrying about how sunlight is affecting your body? Soltrackr is a palm-sized device that measures UV radiation levels and tells you via mobile app about how long you should stay under the sun, alerts you on potential harmful effects, advice you on what SPF level sunscreen you should apply and much more. What’s great about it is that it can fit on a key ring, because no one wants to lug around yet another hefty device.

 

3. KuaiWear coaching headphones

You’re probably wondering what are coaching headphones. Well, these headphones are fitted with a biometric sensor that analyses your performance as you exercise. They then give you instant voice feedback about your heart rate, speed, distance, calories and more while you listen to your music. There are also professional training plans designed by top athletes that you could download for your headphones that cover a wide range of sports, like a wearable coach!

 

4. Ozmo Smart Cup

Sounds like the perfect healthy companion to have. The brand new Ozmo Java+ also has an internal heating element that keeps your beverages warm; and it synchronises with Fitbit, drawing data feeds from it and coming up with personalised hydration goals for you. The Java+ can be pre-ordered here, other options are now available on Amazon!

 

5. Athos shirt

This shirt is perfect for you gym lads out there. Measuring your muscle activity, heart rate, and breathing rate, the shirt shows you exactly which muscles are firing and how much you’re exerting yourself. You’ve only worked your biceps once at 42% this week, time to head to the gym and do some curls!

But Really, What are the Differences Between Insulated, Vacuum and Thermal Cups?

But Really, What are the Differences Between Insulated, Vacuum and Thermal Cups?

 

You see these terms thrown around constantly, but you never have any idea what they mean. All you’re looking for is a cup that stands the test of time and more importantly, retains heat. Should you get an insulation cup, a vacuum cup or a thermal cup? Worry not because we’re here to clarify and make your life a tad easier.

 

Insulation cups

Insulation cups, or double wall cups, are very simply cups that houses an inner and an outer wall in order to maintain temperatures of beverages. The inner wall usually employs stainless steel while the outer wall can be stainless steel, plastic or other kinds of proprietary materials that have been surfacing over recent years. Occasionally, ceramic,  glass or plastic interiors are used too. These options are particularly suitable for those with a sharp palate who dislike the metallic taste when drinking from metal, especially with coffee.

Vacuum cups

Vacuum cups, also known as thermoses, are a type of insulation cup. The difference is that they rely on a vacuum – a space almost completely rid of air. Since vacuums are essentially empty spaces, there are few molecules present to transfer heat by conduction. Many of these vacuum chambers are also coated with a reflective material like silver in order to prevent lost of heat by radiation.

Thermal cups

A thermal cup is…well, any sort of cup that provides thermal insulation, which means it is not a category on its own! Think of it as a general term for any cup that keeps your brew piping hot or ice cold.

 

Another point to note is that a good thermal cup should also be leakproof. You don’t want to toss it in your bag and end up ruining your gadgets!

 

Wondering where to pick up a great thermal cup? The Ozmo smart cup is the way to go. It is made out of BPA Free Tritan Plastic and double-walled to keep your beverage at the right temperature for hours. What’s more, it is leakproof and can also track your water or coffee intake to ensure you stay hydrated, but not overcaffeinated!

Happy new year to all you wonderful supporters of Ozmo! We are so delighted to have accomplished so many things in this year. We were able to successfully launch our Kickstarter campaign in 2015 and in 2016 believe us we will be doing much more so keep an eye out on Facebook and our website.

Since it is the new year we would like to give you some last minute tips for the coming 2016. Let’s achieve our new years’ resolutions together!

Losing weight
Losing weight can be tough but it takes a certain mindset to keep off the weight too. If you want to lose weight this 2016 start by slowly changing your lifestyle. Every month attempt to cut out something: soft drinks, sugary food, junk food. And same with exercise start small, have a stroll around the park and start to jog once you get more comfortable. Also since we now have so many wireless devices you can use Fitbit to keep track of your activeness and Ozmo to keep track of how much water you drink a day – because we all know water is always the better alternative compared to other beverages.

Staying off your phone
This is the real kick of 2016, more and more people are realising how dependent they are on their phones: in awkward situations, to simply past the time. How do we counteract this? Well start off by switching off your phone, seriously try it and do something. Anything that doesn’t require a computer, go to the gym, bake, write in a journal, practice yoga or read a book. Do something that you find calming. When you are hanging out with friends or family have a pact to put everyone’s phones in the centre of the table, first one who reaches out to their’s gets to pay the bill. It really helps all of you to have more conversations instead of constantly just being one your phone. You meet up with your loved ones for a reason to spend quality time with them.

Breaking out of your comfort zone
Leaving your comfort zone is a huge step in taking a leap in life. It requires you to change your habit, to change your life! What do you want to achieve in life? Are you happy the way you are now? If not change the way you are living, life is too short to wonder. Just do what you want to do! If you would like to take up a new hobby make time for it each week and practise. The more you practise the better you get at it. If you want to be more sociable, get into more activities and start talking with people. Approach others first, ask them questions about their lives – you will be surprised how open people actually are.

2016 are filled with possibilities for everyone. Let’s make this year count! What are your resolutions for 2016? Share it with us and we will be happy to comment. Thank you again for being so supportive this year. Happy holidays!
