Heads up – April 8th, 2019! The Fitbit Alta HR (the one with the optical HR sensor) is currently $40 off – down to $89 (or Amazon here)! This is the best price we’ve ever seen for this unit, and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for a HR enabled mainstream activity tracker.
This is more of a closeout deal, due to the new Inspire HR lineup Fitbit released a month ago, but the Alta HR has virtually all the same features….so…yeah. It’s a steal. Full review here.
Given the way the day is going and how many of you are tied to your chairs, it’s probably not exactly a good idea to talk about weight scales. But in this second twofer of the day you’ll get exactly that: A new GPS watch to remind you that you haven’t walked enough yet today, and a WiFi connected Fitbit scale to remind you that you ate too many of those M&M’s from that four-pound bag I linked to earlier in the day.
Oh, as for the watch – the Ionic has music on it and can stream from various services – including ones that offer Coldplay and Weird Al. Also, you can use that contactless payments to purchase even more M&M’s, though, you’ll have to do it in person somewhere and not just online. Still, I suspect you can get your fill of candy somewhere locally. And of course, in the unlikely event you were to depart your DCR Giveaway Extravaganza control room – it has GPS built-in for tracking all your outdoor worldly activities.

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”.

But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you?
