Have they considered making a suppository?

Ripped Plug might go over well in some markets, David Barton's comes to mind.

working out is like fundamentally low tech unless you're a competitive athlete. fitbit failed and so will this

/honestly you don't even need weights, just a strong bag full of rocks

Yeah but will it post directly to Facebook about my workout?

I have a perfect excuse. I'm lazy.

Yep, still fat.

Sorry, I spent all my money on a few pairs of running shoes with slots for your individual toes. There were a bunch of them on clearance for some reason.

I agree with you here, mostly.  Why do you say that Fitbit failed?

I think i meant nike fuelband since they like stopped supporting it or something. honestly i don't know maybe it was a misleading gawker headline.

Not unless you want to make actual progress while optimizing the use of your time.

/and this industry is doing just fine

My clothes tell me I'm fat without microchips.
 
2014-05-09 03:23:58 PM  
would this new clothing look anything like yoga pants?

Nike got out of the hardware business, I think they still are in the software side of things.

I heard they were working on a deal with Apple.

Anyways, I would like to get my hands on a wrist heart rate monitor that connects to my phone for biking and what not.  Seems like a lot of the wearables up to this point don't have a heart rate sensor.  Preferable something on the cheaper side and durable.  Not a big fan of the chest straps.

Is there a wearable something that tells you how many weights you've lifted/curled etc? Keeping count is such a pain.
