We have lost count of the times we have had to remove our rings to workout or worse get our rings repaired from exercise damage.

Qalo did just that - a ring for every sport, every personality and every lifestyle but without the worry of damage to the ring or your finger. And at a price point that is reasonable why not consider Qalo as a temporary replacement or even permanent alternative to the traditional metal ring?

#21 - Nokia Body+ Composition Wi-Fi Scale
One thing we do understand here at LiveFitnessHub is that a scale can cause a lot of problems. Very likely it has single-handedly created more anxiety than any other piece of fitness technology yet we continue to use it. So if you are going to use a scale then why not be smart about it... really smart. The Nokia Body+, formerly Withings, is your ideal weight loss companion with highly accurate weight measurements and full body composition technology that calculates fat mass, muscle mass, water retention and bone mass. Combined with the Body+ phone app this smart scale records all your data and then coaches and rewards you in your nutritional goals.
