Wearable fitness devices are great. They’re convenient, provide incentive to lead a healthier lifestyle and are generally affordable. The only problem is the lack of aesthetic appeal. The point of a wearable fitness tracker is to consistently track your level of fitness, but these trackers are often unattractive. They’re fine when you’re walking your dog, but when you’re walking around the office or traveling for business they’re not always something you want to show off.


In comes Fitbit Blaze, a new product that allows you to get fit in style. The Blaze is the first Fitbit intended to look like a real watch, combining a fitness tracker with smart watch. The Blaze is more affordable than most smart watches, coming in at $199.


The Blaze features PurePulse Heart Rate monitoring, smartphone notifications, multi-sport tracking and connected GPS, color touchscreen and on-screen workouts. It also includes the usual essentials such as a long battery life, music control, all-day activity and sleep tracking, and regular reminders to keep moving. It comes with accessory bands and frames for a customized look, with a variety of colors available, all providing a sleek modern look that pairs well with anything.

Ways to Sweat Less While Traveling

Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
