GOW Smart Fabric Workout Shirt With Integrated Sensors
Improve your workouts with the GOW Smart Fabric Shirt With Integrated Sensors.
This fancy smart-shirt features a HRM (heart rate monitor), sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and free GOW iPhone and Android apps! How’s that sounding for a running shirt?

All you have to do is select between four training modes: running, biking, hiking, or working out at the gym, and let the shirt do its job! The HRM will transfer workout data to the smartphone app, which, based on the received information, will calculate burned calories, traveled distance, best times, ran tracks and even compete against your friends!
The workout outfit is available for men (as a t-shirt) and for women (as a bra), is made of seamless fabric, ensures maximum comfort, moisture release and avoids chafing (technical yarn with Bosy thermoregulation), can be hand washed or machine washed, and the HRM unit can be cleaned, if necessary, with mild soap and clean water.

ALSO CHECK the Superman Alter Ego Compression Shirt an the Superhero Muscle Shirt we featured earlier from Under Armour.

The best part about it is that you get an all-in-one-training-cool-2.0-t-shirt and you no longer have to worry about gearing up a ton of gadgets before going out running. Considering all gadgets are included in the shirt, you will probably have to dismiss them once the t-shirt wears out, but, given it’s reasonable pricing – $79.99 US as we speak (hey … that’s not a lot more than the price of a good, brand working shirt) , it’s still worth the shot!

Midland XTC-280 Wearable Action Camera - A Decent Alternative For GoPro Recorders
While the premium quality, the strong build and the extra set of features make the GoPro action cameras the favorite choice for all extreme sports lovers (and many more), we have to admit that lower end models pack just enough power for casual use and for most regular people out-there! You know what I mean, Mr Regular Guy going on a motorcycle vacation with a couple of friends, Mr Family Guy going to the beach with the kids, Mr Student going on a camping trip or the neighbor’s 10 years old kid recording his biking adventure to impress grandma and grandpa …

Let’s take a closer look to the Midland XTC-280. This action camera is small and light enough to be worn without feeling it and packs a lot of power. It records Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p), it sports a large ON/OFF recording button so it can be easily used by someone wearing motorcycle or ski gloves, wide angle lens, microphone, 5.2MP, image stabilization to make sure you get crisp and stable recording and comes with a submersible case (down to 200 feet or 60 meters) and an universal mount which allows users to use it attached to helmets, motorcycles, snowboards and basically anywhere you can stick an adhesive pad.

We used the Midland XTC-280VP for about a week and and the recordings as well as the camera usability and packed features were OK. The quality could have been better at some points, but hey, don’t forget this is a $90 action camera, not a $400 GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition! Check the attached video to see it for yourself.

Leica X Vario Closeup Side Picture
With its 16.2 MP, APS-C-sized sensor, fixed 18-46mm f/3.5-6.4 lens and a shutter speed ranging between 30-1/2000sec the Leica X Vario is designed for enthusiast photographers in love with the German brand, but don’t necessarily want to spend a ton of money for a pricey M-System.

ALSO CHECK the Sigma DP2 Quatro Camera and the Hasselblad HV Full-Frame DSLR we featured earlier.

The Leica X Vario is slotted below the M model and above the X2, packs a Leica Vario-Elmar 18-46mm lens (28-70mm equivalent), 3-5 fps continuous shooting, 100-12,500 ISO and is … simply cool! Leica cool!!! Given the camera is entirely made in Germany by Leica (and by this I mean it’s not a repackaged Panasonic camera but a real Leica model) and the next step up on the Leica’s modeling chart is the M9 which costs about $7,000 for a camera with similar lens, the $2,099 priced X Vario is a good choice for anyone who wants a lower budget Leica camera.

Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam for iPhone and Android - In Action
Wearing an action camera is no longer a big deal … when doing sports? But did you try mounting your favorite GoPro while taking a walk in the park or going to work? Whatever your reasons might be to do so, it still looks weird! So, if you need to record footage of you’re doing and still have your hands free for other activities, the Looxcie LX2 wearable video camera has you covered! And all this without making you look weird or stupid!

The Looxcie LX2 is lightweight (less than 1oz – that’s less than 22 grams!) and can be worn just as a Bluetooth headphone piece, can be clipped to caps, bike helmets, mounted on car windshields or on a tripod. The camera allows up to 5 hours of video recording, allows instant clip creation and sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or i-Cloud, is powered by rechargeable battery with a life time of up to 4 hours and is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.

Given the small format size of the Looxcie LX2 the only control available on the camera is the power button. All other operations like viewing, controlling the video capture, sharing videos and other setting can be done via the free iOs and Android apps that come with the camera.

Don’t expect miracles when it comes to footage quality. The Looxcie LX2 records in 480p (854×480 pixels) and allows live streaming in 320p (480×320 pixels) – which makes it OK for amateur video recordings.

SlimClip, The Minimalist iPhone Case With Enhanced Clip-On Capabilities
Smartphones are more and more in our lives and every day we depend more and more of them. Just think about it! Just a few short years back you needed a backpack full of gadgets to accomplish what you do today with a simple smartphone. GPS navigation, MP3 player, books, digital camera and the list goes on and on …

But there’s a small problem with this! As smartphones become capable of helping us with more and more tasks, they also grow in size! They need more powerful batteries, bigger screens, bigger storage space, more physical space inside them to carry more chips and technologies … And this makes them less and less portable …

For many, carrying their phone around while working, exercising or traveling has become a real hassle. For them, and not only, the Wonderful Things Factory brought the SlimClip to the market. The SlimClip is a minimalist iPhone case which also doubles as a belt clip allowing users to carry their phones clipped to their belt, pocket or paints waist.

The SlimClip is made of strong protective ABS plastic, has a minimalist design (it only ads 2.5mm of thickness to your iPhone), is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, comes in a range of vibrant colors to match your favorite outfit, gives natural access to all native iPhone buttons and ports and, due to it’s ingenious design, can be securely clipped to clothing, bags, backpacks, laptop cases and even in your car.
I used the SlimClip for the past couple of days and it’s a great product. A bit of work to slide the iPhone in the case, but that’s a small price to pay for a solid grip and piece of mind that your favorite smartphone is well secured and safe while you roam around!
Check out the demo on the manufacturer’s site …
