Huawei unveiled its latest fitness watch, the Huawei Watch Fit. It’s the Chinese company’s first-ever sports-oriented smartwatch with a rounded rectangular face. The new fitness watch aims to reframe your health, fitness, and style.

Reassess your health and fitness

With an assortment of fitness courses, workout modes, and health tracking features, you can get into new routines to reassess your health and fitness.

The Huawei Watch Fit contains 12 workout courses with 44 posture demonstrations, supported by an animated personal trainer. There’s a free one-on-one personal training, and bite-sized exercises so you can stay fit wherever you are. The watch also reminds you to stand up with its reminders, prompting you to move if you sit longer than three minutes.

Moreover, the fitness watch supports a total of 96 workout modes with advanced data tracking. Professional workout modes cover the most popular exercises such as running, walking, cycling, swimming, and more. On the other hand, there are 85 workout modes covered for different niches.

The power of science and technology

Huawei combines its AI technology and scientific data to create comprehensive health-tracking features. With proprietary technologies, Huawei Watch Fit promises to aid consumers in becoming more conscious of their personal health and data.

Monitoring heart rate

Through TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring technology, the Watch Fit assesses your current resting heart rate complete with an infographic detailing the changes over the last 24 hours. Additionally, the fitness watch will notify you when your resting heart rate is too high or too low.

Better sleep tracking

Meanwhile, TruSleep 2.0 monitors your sleep stages and sleep respiration quality. It presents a comprehensive sleep analysis presenting different stages: light sleep, deep sleep, REM, and wakefulness.

Moreover, it identifies typical sleep problems that help the Watch Fit prepare hundreds of suggestions to improve and personalize your sleep. Having a long-lasting battery life, you don’t have to worry about running out of juice while tracking your sleep.

Other health-tracking features

On another note, the Watch Fit also comes with important tracking features such as SpO2 monitoring for your blood oxygen saturation, stress level monitoring packed with breathing exercises, and menstrual cycle management for women.

The We-Vibe Bond takes your stimulation to greater heights

Bring that foreplay to another level

Published

on

Sex toys aren’t just toys anymore. They’re infused with technology — aiming to help people in the art of self-pleasure, improve their relationship with themselves and their partners, and in some cases, aid in medical reasons.

The topic of sex, sex toys, and owning your sexuality is still a taboo in several countries — mine included — but it’s slowly turning around. This year, we’ve seen sex tech dominating the consumer technology scene. While most of them are apt for women, recently, some toys meant for men are evolving into connected wearables.

Such is the case for the We-Vibe Bond — a connected, vibrating stimulation ring (also known as cock ring), designed by We-Vibe, a brand specializing in all kinds of sex toys.

Cock ring, but make it connected

Connected cock rings like We-Vibe’s Bond can be worn discreetly and be operated and controlled remotely using an app. What sets Bond apart is a dedicated remote control that you can use when you and your partner are together.

The stimulation ring is designed in ultra-soft silicone material and comes with an IPX7 waterproof rating. Meaning, you can play with it in the shower or in your tub.

It has ten levels of intensity and ten modes of vibration, with an autonomy of up to two hours. Further customization of the intensity and vibration can be adjusted using the We-Connect app or via the remote control.

Price and availability

The We-Vibe Bond retails for US$ 129. Shop it on We-Vibe’s official website.

Fitbit decks out Charge 5, partnership with Will Smith

Strengthen up and join Will Smith in his journey

Published

on

Fitness company Fitbit has just announced the Fitbit Charge 5 — its most advanced health and fitness tracker yet. The fifth iteration of the Charge lineup comes with new features and a thinner, sleek design built to empower you to focus on your health.

What do we have here?

First and foremost, the new Charge 5 comes with a brighter, colored touchscreen. It’s designed aerodynamically, and optimized for performance. It’s now equipped with a new AMOLED display, allowing the tracker to have an Always-On display option. Plus, it has better sunlight legibility — two-times brighter than its predecessor.

You can easily view your statistics, receive and send notifications from and to your smartphone, and choose from colorful clock faces — all with a swipe of a finger.

Like other Fitbit wearables, the Charge 5 tracks your heart rate 24/7 and constantly update you on your personal ranges. It also provides a holistic view of other wellness metrics through its Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app. This includes breathing rate, skin temperature variation, and blood oxygen level (SpO2).

Furthermore, Fitbit’s industry-leading sleep tools such as Sleep Score, Sleep Stages, and SmartWake alarms are present in the new Charge 5.

So, what’s new?

Interestingly, the Fitbit Charge 5 comes with Daily Readiness Score. The new features helps you understand if your body is ready for a workout or if you need to rest. Its data is based on your fitness fatigue, heart rate variability, and recent sleep.

It also has a built-in GPS, with 20 exercise modes, and automatic exercise recognition for when you forgot to track your workout. And it has an estimate of your VO2 max, the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilize during your exercises.

Another noteworthy feature is its EDA sensor, which was first launched in the Fitbit sense. The sensor measures your body’s response to stress through tiny changes in the sweat glands on your fingers. And the Fitbit Charge 5 is the first tracker to include the sensor.

What else?

Of course, the battery still lasts up to seven days. And you can choose different bands to personalize your tracker. From lightweight silicone infinity bands, to breathable sport bands, plush nylon hook and loop bands, and even hand-crafted premium Horween leather bands.

The Charge 5 also allows you to experience in-depth analysis, guides, tips, and tricks using its features when you subscribe to Fitbit Premium.

Fitbit Premium with Will Smith

Speaking of Fitbit Premium, Fitbit recently partnered with actor, producer, and musician Will Smith. Smith is joining the Fitbit family as its newest ambassador. Premium members can join along his journey through his video sessions together with Smith’s training team.

The sessions will showcase mindfulness sessions and a wide range of workouts — from HIIT, strength, to yoga, and even meditation. The first session is launching on September 27.

Price and availability

The Fitbit Charge 5 is available online at Fitbit.com for US$ 180 (PhP 11,990), which includes a six-month Premium membership for both new and returning customers. It will also come to major retailers such as Digital Walker and Fitbit’s Official Store on Lazada and Shopee, with worldwide availability this September.
