This is NOT your average scale

 

feet on a bathroom scale - isolated

Do you have a bathroom scale? Do you use it often? Or are you like me and shove it into the back of the closet to forget it even exists?

I have a love/hate relationship with our bathroom scale. Mostly I hate it but occasionally I’ll find a reason to love it. Like recently when I realized I lost about 15+ pounds without really trying (just eating less junk and moving more). For that moment in time I loved my scale. Now I don’t like it again because it looks like I gained back 2 pounds. Sigh…

A scale is just a scale – or is it?

With most scales you step on it and pray for the final resting spot (number) is something you hoping it will be. Once you get your weight you step off and that is that. But what if your scale could tell you much more than just your weight?

The 1byone Digital Smart Wireless Body Fat Scale with advanced Bluetooth technology  can help you monitor your weight and diet unlike any other scale I have seen before. It doesn’t just tell you your current weight, it also tells you about Body Water, Body Fat, BMI, BMR, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass and Visceral Fat using and advance algorithm.

In addition to telling you this vital information, the accompanying app also tells you what is considered to be in a healthy range so you can see where you are and where you should be.

1ByOne Scale

You’ll need to download the FREE app to truly take advantage of all the important information the scale can tell you.

There is nothing really to set up. Once you download the FREE app simply create an account and you are ready to go.

You sync the app with your scale via Bluetooth.

Whenever you step on the scale you’ll need to open the app FIRST so that it can receive the data from the scale. Once the app is open simply step on the scale and wait for the countdown before stepping off. Once the countdown is reached the information will be instantly sent to the app on your phone where you can analyze the data.

The data is saved on the app too so that you can track your progress and share with your doctor.

Here is a screen shot of a random weigh in using the scale and app. I covered up the results because I rather not share with the world how much I weigh and my body fat amount.

Scale App Screen Shot

I did lose 2.4 pounds in between the time I weighed myself (above) the the time prior to that. I like that the scale and app tell you how much you lost/gained since your last weigh in.

I like seeing the Target Weight displayed too. It’s a good motivation tool.

My immediate goal is to get from “obese” to “overweight” on the BMI scale. I don’t know how much weight I need to lose to accomplish that, but I am going to do my best to reach that target range.

Anyone can use the scale. All family members could download the app and use it whenever they step on the scale. Or you can use it as a regular scale without knowing the additional information.

The scale it’s self is really nice. It’s thin and lightweight. It’s made out of some kind of tempered glass making have a sleek, modern look to it.

The scale runs on 4 AA batteries which are included.

Scale Screen Shot

This scale can hold up to 400 pounds. You can also get your weight in pounds of KG.

The display is big and bright, making it easy to read. It’s a digital display so you don’t have to guess what weight the arrow is pointing at like you would with older types of scales.

Currently this scale has a 4.2 rating out of a possible 5 on Amazon. I gave it a 5 star rating on Amazon because I really like this scale. I wish I had it sooner when I was on a weight loss program. I think it would have given me the extra boost and motivation that I needed.

You can find the 1byone Digital Smart Wireless Body Fat Scale on Amazon. You can also learn more about this and other products from 1ByOne by visiting the brand online at 1ByOne.com. The brand can also be found on social media. All of their links are found on the bottom left of their website.

Never lose your keys or cellphone again with iHere

Bear

Our son’s best friend “Bear” when he was little (the orange arrow is also pointing at Bear).

How many times have you misplaced, or worse yet – lost – something of great value to you such as your car keys, purse or your child’s favorite plush toy?

That was one of my biggest fears when our son was little. He had a plush toy – a cat he named “Bear” – that he took everywhere with him. Bear was his best friend. Had I known he was going to get so attached to this particular plush animal I would have stocked up and purchased a spare or two just in case he lost it.

Thankfully Bear was never lost.

Our daughter recently got her first car, compliments of her boyfriend’s parents. It’s a great car and we appreciate the kind gesture. The only problem is that there is only one key. They can’t find the spare. Until we have the money to buy a spare from the car dealership (about $40), we have to stress over her misplacing her car keys. If she loses them we have no way to get into her car, or driver her car.

Imagine if there was an easy way to find things that can possibly get lost? There is! It’ called iHere.

iHere

iHere is a tiny, sleek Bluetooth tracker with an accompanying app that helps people to keep tabs on their keys and smartphone.

iHere small and lightweight. You can easily attach it to your car and/or house keys.

There is a FREE app that you’ll need to download to use in conjunction with iHere. The app helps you to locate your lost keys (up to 75′ away). It works via Bluetooth technology.

If you lose your keys simply open the app, press the appropriate button and iHere will sent out a loud beeping noise to help you locate your keys. On the flip side, if you lose your phone the iHere can help you locate that as well, even if the volume is off on your phone. That is great for me because I tend to keep the volume off.

Unlike similar products, this one is rechargeable. Other similar key finders are not chargeable, so you have to purchase new ones every time the battery dies. That is not only inconvenient, its expensive too.

I’m not sure how long the iHere will go on a single charge. I make it a habit to recharge mine every Sunday, just to be on the safe side. I would think a single charge would last a couple of weeks, depending on how often you use it. Thankfully you can see how much battery life is left from the app.

Another thing that makes this key finder stand out from the competition is that you can use it to help you find your car via GPS.

Nondo iHere

When you arrive at your location simply press the button on the iHere and it will make note of your location when the button was pressed. That is the location iHere will help you find should you forget where your car is parked. Another words, when you go to the mall as soon as you park press the iHere and that is the location it will help you find. Trust me, this comes in VERY handy.

Another fun feature is that you can use the iHere device as a remote for your phone’s camera. That means you can take epic selfies without having to find a way to push the button on your phone.

Lastly, the iHere is also a voice recorder. If you press the button on the device you can indiscreetly record conversations. You can also use it to record notes for yourself (for example, stuff you need from the store). I wouldn’t recommend recording someone without their knowledge, but I guess if the situation arises, it could be handy to have that feature.

There is a “separation” feature as well. You can set the device to notify you if your keys and phone get too far from one another. The only reason I can see why you would want to use this is if you drop your keys or of someone pick pockets you and takes your phone or keys. I keep this feature off in the app. I don’t think I really need this option, but others might put it to good use.

iHere

To be honest, the only thing I don’t like about iHere is that you need to switch between modes via the app. I wish there was a way to do that from the device it’s self. Another words, if you want to use iHere as a recorder, you have to go into the app and click on the recorder option. The same applies if you want to use it to find your car. You first need to open the app, click that option, and then press the button on the iHere.

Overall I really like this product. I have another product from Nonda, which I really enjoy and use often. You can read that review here – Never “misplace” your car again with ZUS – the smart car charger.

To find out more about iHere 3.0 Key Finder, visit the Nonda website. It retails for $19.99.

If you would like to learn more about other Nonda products visit www.Nonda.co (notice it’s .co, NOT .com). You can find the tab for iHere at the top of their website. You can also check out the brand on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think about iHere? Does it sound like something you would like to have? What is your favorite feature? Feel free to share your thought. I always love to hear from readers.

A great techie gift for moms and dads on the go

 

Gift

Are you looking for the perfect gift for Mother’s Day and/or Father’s Day? If so, I have a gift idea that might be great for that special someone, especially if they are into techie gifts. It’s called the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick.

Some people might already be familiar with the brand name SanDisk. They make a lot of products including memory cards for cameras and other devices.

I take a lot of photos on my phone. Often I use my iPhone to take picture of products I am reviewing (my regular camera died). In order to get the photos on to my computer so I can upload them to my blog post I need to either email the photo/photos to me (which is time consuming when I have many photos to send) or track down my iPhone plug and plug the phone into my computer and upload the photos and videos that way.

Both option are inconvenience and time consuming.

The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick that I was sent to review has made transferring photo so quick and easy.

The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick allow you to transfer photos, videos, music, movies and more from your phone or other device quickly and easily via WIFI.

The Connect Wireless Stick looks like an ordinary flash drive. But unlike flash drive that you physically have to connect with other devices to upload/download things, the Connect Wireless Stick allows you to transfers, upload and download files without ever having to connect the device. In fact, the only time you really need to connect it is to charge it. That’s it!

San Disk Connect Wireless Stick

Now when I take photos for blog posts I just have to send them to my Connect Wireless Stick and when I am ready to get the photos for blog posts I simply pop the Connect Wireless Stick into my computer. It’s A LOT easier than having to email photos  to me or having to track down the plug to plug my phone into the computer. Not only that, you can’t email large files, especially videos. With the Connect Wireless Stick you can even transfer large files back and forth.

Another great thing about the Connect Wireless Stick is that you can save space on your phone. Imagine being at the beach and you are taking a lot of pictures and find that you are running out of space. If you have the San Disk Connect Wireless Stick you could transfer all the photos from your phone to the Stick and free up space so you can take more photos.

The Connect Wireless Stick can hold a lot of photos, videos, movies and more. You can even connect more than one device to the Stick. Say for example you are traveling and you and your kids have your own iPads. You can all connect to the Connect Wireless Stick and stream and watch movies that you have downloaded – all at the same time (up to 3 devices). You don’t have to take up valuable space by downloading the movie/movies on to your device. Instead you can simply stream them from the Connect Wireless Stick.

My favorite feature of the San Disk Connect Wireless Stick is that you can set it to automatically download the photos and videos from your smartphone (or other device) daily, so that you always have a back up just in case something happens. Say for example you drop and break your smartphone. With the San Disk Connect Wireless Stick set to automatically back up, you’ll have backup copies of your precious photos and videos.

There is no internet connection required either. Things transfer surprisingly quickly too.

The Stick is small, lightweight and has a sleek design. You can easily put it in your purse, pocket, backpack and just about any other place you can think of. There are even hole on it that you can put a lanyard through and/or key chain jump ring and attach it to your keys so you literally have it with you at all times.

The Connect Wireless Stick is available in 16 GB up to 200 GB.

San Disk Connect Wireless

The accompanying app is easy to use. Even people who are “technologically challenged,” like me, can set this up quickly and easily.

I always seem to have storage issues with my phone, so I am constantly moving stuff to my laptop and/or deleting things. Ever since I received the San Disk Connect Wireless Stick I haven’t had any issues whatsoever. I only wish the “cap” that protects the end that sticks into computers stuck a bit better, or maybe had a connecting piece so that if it fell off it wouldn’t get lost.

This would make an excellent Mother’s and/or Father’s Day gift. I also think this would make a great gift for a high school or college graduate. Starting at around $25 for the 16 GB, this is also an affordable gift option.

For more information visit THIS PAGE on the San Disk website (or do a search for the product). The product is available at several retail locations and online including Best Buy. It’s also available on Amazon. If you are a Amazon Prime member you can get FREE two day shipping – just in time for Mother’s Day.

Don’t for get to check out San Disk on social media. All of their links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think of the San Disk Connect Wireless Stick? Doe it sound like something you would want? Would you give it as a gift?

Universe2Go – Your own personal planetarium

 

Night Sky Stars

I grew up in the country in upstate New York. It was the kind of place where there were no street lights, you didn’t feel the need to lock your doors and kids could spend endless hours playing in the yard or in the woods without a worry.

These days I live in the suburbs of New York City. Instead of deer and cows roaming freely they were replace with municipal buses and taxi cabs. Sigh…

There are MANY things I miss about living in the country. One of those things is being able to see the night sky with no interruption. Because we didn’t have street lights where I grew up you could see all the stars in the sky. It was spectacular.

One year I received a telescope from my father as a gift. My future brother in law gave me a bunch of books about Astronomy to go along with my telescope. I loved viewing the night sky. The telescope fueled my interest in the stars, planets and distant galaxies.

Living in the suburbs of New York City, and being surrounded by street lights, getting a good look at the night sky is not that easy. I can see some stars and planets, but not as many as I’d like to.

Photo of the moon I took many years ago.

I love going to planetariums. Have you ever been to one? There was a small one upstate where I lived at a local camp (it only seated 49 people, but it was cool). I have also been to the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History in NYC a few times. I even met Neil de Grasse Tyson once. He is the Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the museum (Rose Center).

I find planetariums fascinating. I love learning about the night sky and being able to identify the things that I see.

I do know some of the constellations including the big and little dippers, Orion, and something known as the Seven Sisters. Aside from that, I have no clue where to find Gemini (I’m a Gemini), Leo, Aquarius and all of the birth signs. Even having a map in my hands I find it difficult to find them.

What if you could have your very own personal planetarium? You can! All you need is a smart phone (to download the app) and a Universe2Go viewer.

The app is free to download.

Universe2Go

Universe2Go looks a lot like a View Master (remember those?). To use simply open the app on your phone, choose what you want to see, put the phone in the viewer, look into it and enjoy.

The device and your smart phone know what you are looking at and adds an overlay to the night sky that points out constellations, planets and more. In addition, the app will talk to you and tell you some amazing facts and information about what you are looking at. It’s just like what you would experience if you were at a planetarium, except you are in your own yard (or any outdoor area) and you choose what you want to see and learn about.

Check out this brief video that gives you a bit more information about Universe2Go.

 

My family and I have been having a blast playing around with Universe2Go. I find that it has a wealth of information about the night sky – more than I thought it would. It’s something you can really learn a lot from and never get board with.

Set up was a bit tricky.

There are foam pieces you can use to help your smartphone fit snuggly in the Universe2Go viewer. If you have a protective case on your phone you might have to remove it. I know I had to remove my phone case in order to put my phone into the Universe2Go. That was a little inconvenient (my cellphone case is a pain in the neck to get on/off), but it was worth it to use the Universe2Go viewer.

Before you can fully enjoy all that Universe2Go has to offer you have to calibrate the device. That is what I had the most trouble with. For some reason the app was talking a foreign language to me (German I think?) so it was hard to understand what I needed to do to calibrate the device. Thankfully my tech savvy teenage son was finally able to figure it out.

Universe

There is a code inside the box the viewer comes in that you’ll need to enter into the app to take advantage of everything Universe2Go has to offer. You can use the device/app without it, but trust me, you’ll want to access everything.

To navigate the different controls and sections of Universe2Go, via the app, you need to tilt your head in different ways. That took a bit of getting used to. Of course my kids figured out almost right away (isn’t that always the case). I guess it takes this “old dog” a bit longer to learn “new tricks.” Once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy.

I’m assuming the app knows where you are via GPS. That way it knows what is above you in the night sky based on your location. You don’t even need a perfect view of the night sky. The device will still show you want is in the night sky – that you should be able to see if your view wasn’t obstructed or interfered with.

If you linger long enough on any of the things you see in the night sky the app will narrated for you what you are looking at and provide you with interesting information about what you are looking at – just like what you would experience if you were looking at it at a planetarium. There is literally hours worth of interesting information found on Universe2Go.

What you see

What you see when looking at the night sky via Universe2Go

The device projects an overlay on the night sky, making it easier for you to identify what you are looking at. It’s actually pretty cool. It’s easier to visualize things with the help of the overlay. It even gives you close up images of planets and galaxies. The planets and galaxies were my favorite things to explore. It’s not always easy to spot a planet in the night sky.

I can now also find thing in the night sky, even without Universe2Go, thanks to having the visual to aid me in locating things in the night sky.

Universe2Go is the type of product that makes learning fun and interesting.

This is a great device to have whether you are a novice or a more knowledgeable person when it comes to Astronomy. Children and adults can both enjoy Universe2Go. It’s great for all ages.

Universe2Go is available at Universe2Go.com. The product retails for $99. Shipping is FREE.

box

With your purchase you will receive;

  • Universe2go star viewer
  • App activation code
  • Carrying strap
  • Storage pouch
  • Brief instructions
  • Gift packaging

The carrying pouch and strap are very handy. I’m glad the manufacturer included them with the purchase.

Don’t forget about the activation code! I found mine on the inside of the box on a sparkly sticker.

Universe2Go would be great to take with you when you go camping, or even just to enjoy in your own backyard. We don’t even have a yard (just a balcony) and we can fully enjoy the device too.

Look for Universe2Go on social media too. All of their links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think about Universe2Go? Does it look like something you or your family would enjoy?

Check out the AURABOX from DIVOOM – It’s both fun and practical

AuraBox Divoom

One of the best things about being a blogger is getting to know about products you might not otherwise know about. Sometimes products sent to me to review I enjoy so much that I use them on a daily basis, or I re-order them again and again when I run out. Some of my most favorite products were originally sent to me to review. Such is the case with the AURABOX from DIVOOM.

The AURABOX from DIVOOM is both fun to play with, as well as a practical item for your home.

The DIVOOM AURABOX is…

  • A Bluetooth Speaker
  • Lamp
  • Thermometer (indoor temperature)
  • Clock
  • Alarm Clock
  • Sound Machine
  • Notifier (it will let you know if you have a phone call, text or even Facebook messages and Twitter tweets).

One of it’s most fun features is that it’s a digital palette allowing you to display images (both animated and non-animated) that you can get from the accompanying FREE app. You can even create your own digital images and animations.

I love to listen to music sometimes when I am working. I also need to listen to music when I’m cleaning or I’ll slow down (the music helps me to keep going). The AURABOX works great as an Bluetooth wireless speaker. The sound quality is excellent. You can even pair up the lights to put on a show for you to the beat of the music. This is a fun feature for parties.

The AURABOX also works as a lamp.The light is not too bright (I wouldn’t read or do homework by it) but it’s great for when you need to light the way for a little while or in the event of a power outage. It could work as a nightlight too.

I like that it’s a thermometer. It displays the temperature INSIDE your home. I originally thought it was the outside temperature. It’s nice to know the temperature inside so you know if you should turn up the heat or turn on the air conditioner if it gets too hot or cold.

Captain America's sheild

Elmo

Elmo! This would be fun to have as a nightlight in a child’s room.

The AURABOX functions as a clock. I believe it only displays military time (example 1300 hours, 1700 hours…). I couldn’t find a way to change it to non-military time. That is fine with me. I am familiar with military time so I can tell the time just by looking at it. My kids are not familiar with military time so it takes them a bit longer to figure it out.

I haven’t tried out the alarm clock function yet, so I can’t provide you with my thoughts about that. I also don’t hear alarm clocks that well. I rely on my husband to wake me up in the morning.

I LOVE the sound machine option. You can set the alarm to play beautiful sounds rather than the annoying BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! or buzzing sound. You can also go to sleep by these sounds. In the alarm section of the product’s app you’ll find different “scenes” you can choose from – Sea Waves (ocean sounds, waves, birds, gentle music), Raining Night (heavy downpour of rain and thunder), Forest (nature sounds such as birds chirping and what sounds like a stream) and Default. Each scene delivers a different light color on the front of the box (Green for Forest, Purple for Raining Night and Blue for for Sea Waves).

Below are two brief videos that give you an idea of the lighting and sounds/music that you can get in the Alarm Scenes.

 

I have on the nature sound in the background when I am working on my computer. I find them to be very relaxing.

The digital palette is the most fun thing about the AURABOX from DIVOOM.

There are dozens of animated and non-animated light up images to choose from. My husband says its like a modern version of Light Bright (those of you around my age might remember that toy). There are so many fun options to choose from. You can display images to liven up a party, show off how you are feeling and more.

There are a few examples of the animations (in brief videos) found at the bottom of this post.

The AURABOX even allows you to create your one LED light up displays AND animations. It takes some getting used to because you have to draw with boxes in mind, but after some practice it’s not that hard to do. I have created several messages for my family as well as silly animations. It’s something fun the whole family can get in on.

Here are two that I made to give you an example. The top photo is a screen shot from the app and below it is the way it appears on the AURABOX.

It’s a lot like working with a Light Bright – but without the pegs. You just have to get used to “drawing” with square boxes.

I really enjoy having the AURABOX in our home. Its not only a device we can all use, but it’s also a fun thing to play with too.

I’m sure I am missing other features. The AURABOX has so much to offer.

The device is compatible with iOS 7 and Android devices. The app to control it is FREE to download and use. It also charges via a USB plug from your computer or you can plug the USB cord into an outlet plug and charge it from an outlet.

It's a clock! (Military time)

It’s a clock! (Military time)

It takes 3-4 hours for it to fully charge and will last approximately 6 hours of play time. It might last a bit longer if you only use it as a clock.

What do you think about the AURABOX by DIVOOM? Does it look like something you would like for your home or office? What is your favorite feature?

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month – How focused are YOU when you drive?

 

Teen Driver

I’m a mom to two teenagers. Our daughter has her driver’s license, but we are not confident about her driving abilities. We feel that she’s easily distracted and the littlest thing causes her to panic.

We also have a 16 year old son who also drives. Oddly enough he does better than his older sister. I guess all of those driving games he plays on the computer really helped him.

We try to educate our children that when you drive you are bombarded with things that can take away from your focus – other drivers, animals, debris blowing on to the road, passengers in your own car… the list goes on.

For the time being we tell our kids they need to keep the music off and conversation to a minimum until they develop better driving skills and more experience.

Cellphones are a huge “no-no” when it comes to driving. We tell our kids to not only put their phones in the backseat, but also to turn off the volume or turn them off completely, that way they are not distracted by an incoming phone call or text message.

I’m not sure about other states, but here in New York it’s against the law to drive while talking on the phone. I cannot tell yo how many drivers I have seen who totally ignore the LAW and continue to drive while talking on the phone. You can spot those driver’s easily enough because you can tell by their driving that they are distracted by something.

Some people think they are getting around that law by making “hands free” phone calls via a earpiece, their car’s built in phone system or using the hands free option and speaker on their cellphone.

IMG_5766

Personally I think any kind of a phone call can be distracting whether it’s on your phone or done “hands free.” You should be 100% focused on your driving and the world around you and not chatting with your spouse about dinner or what to watch on T.V. that night.

If what you need to talk about is THAT IMPORTANT you should find a parking lot or a safe place to pull over and chat. Don’t chat when you are speeding down the thruway or in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

I never use my phone when driving. My phone is either in my purse in the backseat or side pocket on my car door (I have a small purse) or in my pocket. The only time you will visually see my phone when I am driving is if I need to charge it. Even then I place the phone in the cup holder in my car and forget it’s even there.

When you are not distracted you are better able to focus on what is going on around you so that you can deal with driving hazards. Take for example a recent incident with my husband. He went into the left lane to make a left hand turn. Someone coming from the opposite direction went into his lane thinking it was the turning lane to go into the diner. Had my husband not been 100% focuses on his driving he could have been involved in a head-on collision. Thankfully he was fully aware of his surroundings and was able to quickly get out of the turning lane before the other car hit him.

Another recent incident happened to me the other day. I was driving home from the store with my son when and elderly man with a cane stepped out into the road before me. I slammed on my breaks immediately. Turns out he suffers from dementia. Thankfully his daughter was with him to get him back on the sidewalk where they were walking.

road

If was even slightly distracted I could have hit him!

Driving is not a right – it’s a privileged. As such you should give it your un-divided attention all the time.

Don’t talk and drive. It’s that simple. If you feel you might be too tempted, put your phone in the backseat or trunk. Or simply turn off your phone so you are not tempted to check to see if you have text messages.

The National Safety Council has a wealth of information and resources to help you not to be a distracted driver. You can find all the materials here.

The NSC is also asking drivers to take the pledge to drive cell free. I hope you will take a moment to take the pledge. You can take the pledge here.

The NSC is also hosting a FREE 1 hour webinar on Wednesday April 6 at 12:00 PM (EST) / 9:00 AM (PST). The webinar is about how car manufacturers are in an arms race to make vehicles as connected as possible – but at what cost? Research is showing that voice-activated technologies may be distracting, which means they are not a good alternative to using a cell phone while driving. Please click here to register for the webinar.

To see what others are saying please check out the hashtag #TakeBackMyDrive and check out @NSCsafety on Twitter.

Do you use your phone (hands-free or in your hand) when driving? Why or why not? Feel free to share your thoughts on this matter.
