In today’s world, nothing escapes the fact that we are moving in a direction where quantifying and recording stuff obsessively is sort of the norm. We use Foursquare to check into places, we annoyingly take photos of our meals with Instagram, and we share our thoughts on Twitter. So would it be much of a surprise if we also like to track the number of steps they take, or how much we sleep? Today, we’ll put the Fitbit Flex and the Jawbone UP against each other, and decide whether it’s the newcomer or veteran who takes home the gold. We’ll also be offering both devices, so enjoy the review then remember to join the contest.
Fitbit One is an activity monitor and sleep tracker. It counts steps taken, distance travelled, stairs climbed, and calories burnt. In sleep mode, it tracks the number of times you got up or were awake, and gives a calculated quality of sleep score. It retails for $99 and we have one to give away!
The Remee Lucid Dreaming Mask (pronounced rem-may) claims to aid you in mastering the art of dream control; or as it’s more commonly known, Lucid Dreaming.
