On the outside the Nevo Smartwatch has a stylish look and sports a 5ATM water resistant 316L stainless steel case that’s .49in (12.6mm) thick and 1.57 (40mm) in diameter and a Sapphire glass crystal.

Cynaps Mint Bone Conduction Headset
If you liked the Hands-Free Bone Conduction Headphones Cap we featured earlier and the way it allows you to listen to your favorite music and podcasts while still leaving your ears free to focus on the surrounding sounds, we’re back with another another cool product from the same manufacturer – the Cynaps Mint.

ALSO READ about the FINIS SwiMP3 Waterproof MP3 Player With Bone Conduction Headphones we featured earlier.

Pavlok - The Fitness Tracker With Punishing Powers!
If you tried any fitness trackers you must have noticed that most (if not all) of them focus on the same principle – they gather information, process it and present it to you on a positive note to motivate you to push further.
But, what if that doesn’t work? What if positive reinforcement is not for you? Don’t get me wrong, I am not says you need a beating because you over-slept this morning, but … maybe a little reminder zap would have helped?!?

ALSO CHECK the Withings Pulse, the FitBit Ultra and the MyBasis fitness trackers we featured earlier.

Enter PavlokPavlok does everything other fitness trackers do, but there’s also a subtle addition – the app aims to change and form habits owners wish they have by reinforcing good behaviors and punishing bad behaviors with small electric zaps (just like the static electricity shocks feel when you touch the door knob) and shame posts on social media telling your friends you had a gym training and you missed it!!!
Here’s how the guys from Pavlok describe it: “Earn Rewards when you Succeed. Face Penalties if you Fail.

Pavlok is in prototype mode, will be available for iPhone and can be pre-ordered with delivery scheduled for early 2015.

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!
