I've Been Shopping

I decided to treat myself to a couple of items off my Amazon list and it's not even my birthday.

First to come off of the list was the "Gymboss" interval timer. Sometimes at the park I'll sprint for 1:00 minute and then walk for 2:00 minutes I'll do this usually 7 times, makes for a quick heart pounding workout. The issue is that I can't count set my watch for two different intervals and then try to remember if that was my 4th or 5th sprinting session. Gymboss lets you set different intervals as well as the number of intervals. It's small and clips right onto your shorts, it can even be set to vibrate so if your at the gym you won't disturb others. There's only 3 buttons and can be programmed in about 2 minutes the first time you use it.

Next off the list a set of "Smoking Buds" from "Skullcandy". Fricksworld has at least 6 iPods laying around and at least twice that many sets of headphones. Apple is the master of form & function but they can't build a set of headphones to save their life. To me they are very tinny allow for lots of ambient noise to seep in and will not stay in my ear when doing anything physical. Now I love my "Bose" headphones, on a plane they can't be beat, but not practical for wearing while doing anything physical. Enter the Smoking Buds these fit in the ear and stay in the ear with their silicone buds, they limit ambient noise and the bass response is amazing plus they have cool skulls on them, marketing at its finest.
