If you are serious about winning the battle of the bulge, consider the Smart Body Analyzer from Withings. Described as a ‘one-stop health tracking scale,’ the futuristic weight loss tool, introduced last spring, measures not only your weight, but also your Body Mass Index (BMI), fat composition, heart rate…even daily air quality. The Smart Body Analyzer, priced at $149.95, is designed to be linked with your smart phone or Wi-Fi network, to track and record your individual progress. Built with specialized automatic user recognition technology, the uber-cool scale can calculate and store data and create personalized profiles for up to eight users. If you’re brave enough and want to share your weight and other stats with your friends on social media, you can program the device so that it automatically posts your latest data on Facebook and Twitter.

 

According to Eugene Kim, editor of PC Mag, “The Withings Smart Body Analyzer puts a wealth of useful health information at your fingertips. Tracking your weight and body composition is a great way to make sure you stay on top of your health, and knowing your resting heart rate is a useful indicator for overall fitness.” Kim named deemed the product an ‘Editors’ Choice’ in 2013.

Tips for Buying Travel Insurance

Deciding to purchase travel insurance can either be a lifesaver or a waste of money, depending on your personal circumstances, your travel experience and the company you choose to purchase insurance from. Before you decide whether travel insurance is right for you, consider the following 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.
