I know most people have a favorite “gadet” or website they like to visit (besides gyminee of course!) and I thought would see what that is.

Do you have a favorite site you like besides here? A favorite water bottle? Cool gadget that helps you? etc…

I would love to hear! :)

My favorite thing right now is my Polar F6 Heart Rate monitor and strap…LOVE IT!!

And I hate to be a jerk, but can we please only keep posts in this forum to fitness and health related topics, such as exercises and workouts, etc. There are places for every topic on Gyminee’s forums, they don’t all need to go in this one.

Thanks

Favorite gadget right now is my iPhone…lol, the do everything device…At the gym, its my iPod, my pedometer (measuring distance, steps, and how many calories I burn) and my heart beat rate monitor….As well as my web browsing device to enter data into Gyminee…On the road, its my cop trap finder device (using an app on it called Trapster), iPod, directions device (using Google Maps), lowest gas price finder (using app called Gashog), and dynometer (using Pocketdyno). In the classroom its my homework assignment logger (using app calling iProcrastinate) and graphing calculator (using apps ‘Quickgraph’ and ‘GraphCalc’) and chemical reaction time keeper (using ‘LabTimer’) and lecture recorder (using Voicenotes and Ecconote). In the store, its my grocery list (using ‘Grocery G’, store specific product price notepad (using Pricepad), lowest product price finder (using ‘Save Benjis’ and the given UPC number), and my personal info lockbox (stores all CC numbers, website logons using ‘1Password’). And then the countless other apps I have for recreating like games or internet radio apps or TV guides or whatever…Im a gadget whore…And this one phone mos def does what all my other gadgets used to do combined.

I like looking at anything that can benefit me. Prevention.com has a really good website. They have a health tracker that tracks everything: weight, measurements, excercise, even your moods. It also tracks your goals and can tell you how much weight you need to lose by your goal date. The only downfalls are that there are so many ads that clutters every page. And if you are trying to gain weight, you won’t be able to tell you how much you need to gain. They also have an avatar- like program that lets you have a virtual view of yourself. You can even change the wardrobe. You can see how you are now and what you would look like at your goal weight. Fun Stuff.

I Lost 5% I Burned 50K Calories! I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs! I Burned 25K Calories! I Ran 100 Miles! I Burned 5,000 Calories!

No worries! I’m sure one of the mods will move it to the Off Topic discussion for us.

That said, my favorite gadget is my TiVo—completely changed the way I viewed TV.

My favorite sites, other than Gyminee, are LifeHacker, DVDTalk, and SlickDeals.

I Lost 35 Lbs! I Lost 20 Lbs! I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs!

Here’s my lineup in the morning:

woot.com and sellout.woot.com
spoofee.com
giveawayoftheday.com
ikariam.com
foxnews.com

Then my evening routine is:

interfacelift.com for their wallpaper
liveleak.com

I periodically visit other websites like lifehacker.com as well, but these are the main ones.

As for gadgets, I have a BlackBerry Curve and check RSS feeds, weather, and traffic periodically. I have a few games on it too.

Nokia Sports Tracker on my N95

Utilizes the GPS on your phone to plot your jog/run, and exports it to Google Maps. The accelerometer in the N95 counts steps.

Tracks progress on stuff like speed, pace, altitude which you can upload online:

I Lost 10 Lbs! I Ran 100 Miles! I Biked 100 Miles!

I’m really looking forward to getting a FitBit . That along with the Nike Plus+ and now Gyminee will be almost everything a stats geek like me needs to track every aspect of fitness. I still need a good heart rate monitor, does anyone have a recommendation?

I received this item in the mail today to test drive and review: www.marylousweigh.com (fyi, I am in no way affiliated with this company other than the fact that I’ll be evaluating their product).

It’s an interesting concept. It’s a device that helps you track your weight loss progress without actually telling you how much you weigh.

For me personally, I’m a numbers nut so I NEED to know my weight, bodyfat %, calorie intake, et al. With that said, I’ve heard from many women over the past few months who really struggle with the number on the scale and seem to lose sight with the big picture (getting healthy, losing inches).

It’ll be interesting to see how this ‘scale’ works. When I agree to review a product I make it clear that I’ll be honest … for better or worse. I’ve had many companies respond to that with a “thanks, but no thanks”. It’s refreshing to find a company who is open to honest feedback, and willing to take that risk.

On that note, and this question is open to all but likely more relevant to the females on Gyminee …

How would you feel about a device that will track your daily weight loss progress, without telling you the actual amount of weight you’ve lost? If your jeans/swimsuit are fitting better, does the number really matter to you?

Good question, Susan. I’m not sure how I’d feel about that. I went a long time where I didn’t even have a scale in my house so I think I could handle it.

The number doesn’t REALLY matter to me…except when it does. Does that make sense?

I’ll be interested to read your review.

Going to start test driving it this weekend so stay tuned Liz!

It’s a pretty interesting concept, which is why I agreed to review it.

I get what you’re saying in regards to “the numbers”. I recall a string on this site where someone mentioned weighing themselves multiple times per week, and getting upset if the numbers weren’t what they expected. Makes me believe this product could fill a void in the marketplace.
