Surely it makes sense that the tech we use to track our runs should be on our feet, not strapped to our arms, so it was only a matter of time before this tech made its way into our running shoes. The Under Amour HOVR Infinite Running Shoes come with a sensor imbedded into the shoe that digitally connects your feet to your phone. Fear not - this doesn’t have an impact on the weight or comfort of the shoe. It can be synced after your run, letting you take to the streets whilst leaving your phone at home (try it, you will feel liberated).

New out from Proviz for the 2018/2019 season is the Reflect360 performance cycling gilet. It is available in Men’s and Women’s versions in sizes XS-XXXL and 6-16 respectively and has been created to fit comfortably over the top of standard cycling gear for road cycling. The Reflect360, as you may have guessed from the name, has 360˚ reflectivity to help you be seen in the dark or when the light quality is reduced. The Gilet features Proviz’s retro-reflective material across the entire front, and across the shoulders and the lower back.
With a name like PIQ Robot, you might think of a large robotic caddy following you around the green telling you what to do and holding your drinks, but although this would be awesome, it wouldn’t be convenient to pack away in the boot of your car. Thankfully, this robot is teeny tiny and sits on your glove (sadly, it won’t hold your drinks).

It’s strange to think that when you go fishing and you are sat in your chair, enjoying the sun (if you are lucky), all the action is taking place out of sight just a few meters away. It’s all too easy to imagine, after a few hours, that there is a prize-winning fish sitting next to the line having a giggle at your expense. Well, now you can spy into all that underwater drama with the use of the GoFish Cam (not to be mistaken with a Plenty of Fish cam).
It is painfully obvious in my family that one diet doesn’t fit all. My sister has the metabolism of an athlete and could sit on her backside and eat cake for a month without putting on one pound. I, on the other hand, only need to walk past a bakery and I’ve gained half a stone. It makes sense to assume our individual genetic makeup can have an effect on health and fitness routines, and the Body Fit from DNAfit provides you with a breakdown of your DNA and how it can impact your diet and exercise.
I was 12 when Jackass first hit the screens and immediately decided to ignore all those warnings and attempt to jump my mountain bike off a home-made ramp. Unsurprisingly, the ramp immediately collapsed under my weight, locked my front wheel and sent me sailing over the handle bars, just like the boys on the show. Unlike those guys, I hit the ground and burst into tears: this is when I learnt that falling off isn’t funny - it’s painful and dumb.
