Lark Life

First we had Nike+ Fuel band and now we have the Lark Life. Nike came out with a wrist band that basically adds fuel whenever you perform an action. It tracks steps, calories and also tells the time. You could then connect it to your Nike+ account and compete with your friends or yourself. It was pretty ahead of its time. But along came Lark and technologically it blows the Fuel band out of the water.

Lark Life  not only tracks your calories and steps, but also has a hydration monitor, and fitness alerts among others. Unlike the Fuel band, Lark Life nudges you to do some exercise when it feels you have been inactive for a while.

among exercising, Lark can help you with your eating and sleeping habits. its like having your own life coach with you at all times. it doesn’t only read your sleep patterns but also has a vibrating alarm to wake you and only you up.

Heading to the design elements of it, it has an ergonomic design and with one button you can sync or log an action really easily.

it comes in three colours; blue, red or grey.

it is available for pre-order here at $149.99

Nike GS

Nike are at it again.

they started off by releasing four cool sets of football boots each set up for specific roles on the pitch. For running they pushed the boundaries by pulling shoes apart and making them lighter and lighter throughout every season.

Now they have released this boot… the Nike GS. It is the company’s lightest ever boot weighing in at only 160 grammes.

the boot is constructed using renewable and recycled materials and designed for explosive performance on the pitch and lower impact on the planet keeping everyone happy apart from the opposing defenders.

some technical info on the boots components: A bio-based traction plate made primarily from castor beans ensures strength and flexibility on pitch alongside a sock liner made from 100% castor beans. The boot laces, lining and tongue are made from a minimum of 70% recycled materials. The toe board and collar, feature at least 15% recycled materials.

This boot is a special edition and will be only available at Nike.com and selected online retailers, so if you are lucky to see it in person, pick it up and snap a picture and send it over to us.

Price for this lightweight beauty is $300  when it is released on August 15th which when converted with today’s current rate it equals €245 meaning its only for those professionals.

Nike+ FuelBand

who ever says you can’t mix sports with social media?

Nike have taken this concept a step further by releasing a band known as the ‘Nike+ FuelBand’. it is a wearable band sort of like a bracelet with an accelerometer  that allows you to track steps, calories spent and your ‘Nike fuel’ which is a score that you earn whenever you move.

You can track your activity using the Nike+ website by syncing over USB and lets other users track your progress and also lets top athletes congratulate you on your goals.

There is a line of LED’s ranging from red to green that lets you keep track of the fuel gained over the day.

It is pretty cool and will definitely look into investing in one when paired with my new Nike FreeRun +2 which I will write a review on in the coming weeks.

 

The cost will be around €120 or $150 if you from USA from any Nike Stockist.
