Withings ScanWatch Review: An Elegant Health and Fitness-Tracking Wearable – WIRED

I have tested countless smartwatches and fitness trackers, and many of them impressed me at first blush. But few claimed a spot on my wrist after the review was done. All eventually lay discarded on the nightstand after I forgot to charge them. Most smartwatches tout features I have little use for, and fitness trackers often look incongruous outside the gym.

The Withings ScanWatch is different. This hybrid smartwatch has a very particular set of skills: It passes easily for an analog watch; it tracks my activity, workouts, and sleep; it keeps an unblinking eye on my health; and it offers basic notifications from my phone. It can also go a whole month between charges.

Understated Elegance

The sapphire glass and stainless steel construction of the timepiece make for a sophisticated pairing that conveys quality. The Withings ScanWatch looks like a traditional watch, with chrome-covered hour and minute hands. The circular face has two smaller dials inside. The bottom dial has a single red analog hand that shows your progress toward your fitness goals for the day, which is measured as a percentage between zero and 100. The top dial isn't actually a dial at all. Press the rotating crown on the side of the ScanWatch and the minute and hour hands sweep aside as a tiny passive matrix OLED display comes to life to show you the digital time and date. Give the crown a spin to see different bits of data appear on that tiny screen: your heart rate, step count, distance covered, and floors climbed.

Switching from an Apple Watch, I found the 42-mm Withings ScanWatch heavy at first. It has chunky lugs (the 38-mm model has a much daintier design), but it is a comfortable timepiece to wear, with a generous black fluoroelastomer wristband that has proven durable and less apt to pick up lint than the silicone bands Ive worn before. The ScanWatch looks and feels precise. The classic design blends in with any setting or outfit, so I rarely feel the need to take it off when I dress up or down.

Distilled and Accessible

Stripped of superfluous smartwatch features, the Withings ScanWatch focuses firmly on fitness and health. Theres no NFC for mobile payments, no microphone or speaker for calls or voice assistants, and no support for music playback. You can turn on incoming notifications from your phone, but I recommend setting them to calls only, as the display is too small for other notifications. By the time a ticker-tape text message unfurls, you could have easily slipped the phone from your pocket, read the notification, and put it away again.

Its rare for me to use a device for nine months before reviewing it, but the American release of the Withings ScanWatch was delayed while the manufacturer sought clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration for its ability to detect atrial fibrillation through the built-in electrocardiogram sensor, and to measure blood oxygen levels with the SpO2 sensor. Both the Apple Watch 7 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 offer similar functionality, but only the Withings ScanWatch has FDA clearance on the blood oxygen monitoring.

Fitness Facts: What to do for a cold or the flu – GCU Today

By Connie ColbertGCU Director of Health Services

So you are sick with a cold or the flu. Now what?

Here are some self-care tips to manage your symptoms and put you on the road to recovery.

Connie Colbert

Flu symptoms can make you feel terrible. But if you are otherwise healthy, younger than age 65 and not pregnant, you generally can take care of yourself at home rather than going to your doctor.

Try these remedies:

To avoid infecting other people, stay home from work, school and other public places for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medications. Most people feel better within a week of becoming infected with the flu virus. However, coughing may last for another one or two weeks.

Also, know when to call the doctor!

Call 911 or seek emergency help for trouble breathing or increased shortness of breath, confusion, sudden dizziness, stiff neck chest pain, seizure, extreme fussiness in a baby or trouble waking a baby.

Dont ask for antibiotics. They work only against infections caused by bacteria. The flu is aviral infection.

Manchester United handed fitness boost as Cavani, Varane and Lingard return to training – The Athletic

Manchester United trio Edinson Cavani, Raphael Varane and Jesse Lingard have all returned to training ahead of the clubs Champions League match against Young Boys although the trio are not expected to feature on Wednesday night.

United currently sit first in Champions League Group F, with their win over Villarreal last time out booking their place in the knockout stages and making sure of top spot.

Speaking on Tuesday, interim manager Ralf Rangnick said: They (Cavani and Varane) cannot play tomorrow but they were part of training today. Edi even yesterday, Rapha the first time.

I expect them both in full training next week. They are both top players. It is also about sustainability. It would be great to have them as soon as possible, but obviously for the rest of season.

Rangnick was not drawn on Lingards availability, but added: Everybody has the chance to perform and present themselves. I am happy to give game time to quite a few of them tomorrow.

It is the perfect opportunity to get to know the players.

Anthony Martial is also out of action as he recovers from a knee injury which he suffered in training on Saturday.

We need to make sure he reduces pain in next few days and hopefully have him back training next week, Rangnick added.

Peloton Adds Boxing to Its Library of Fitness Classes – The Manual

Peloton

To Peloton instructor Rad Lopez, boxing was always a celebration. The 30-year-old New Yorker remembers big family gatherings for the fights when he was a child in family gatherings among aunts and uncles, with food and drinks. But unlike the rest of his relatives, he was captivated with the fights themselves. Its a true test of composure. Its grit and grace, Lopez tells The Manual. Id be the only one watching the full card, from the first fight to the last. When Peloton hired him in June officially as a strength trainer, there was also an unannounced project hed be joining: With fellow instructors Kendall Toole and Selena Samuela, Lopez would develop Pelotons first boxing module, and on Tuesday, December 7, that module went live.

I feel like boxing is the culmination of so many of our disciplines, Lopez says of the sports place in the Peloton pantheon of fitness. All those hills and leaderboards youve topped on the bike? They translate to transferring power from the ground into your punches. The fluidity youve found from yoga? Its grace in movement as you bob and weave. And that stamina from the treadmill and the muscle from strength training? Its brute force through your knuckles and the endurance to deliver it round after round. Youre using all the modalities to be really good at boxing, he says.

Pelotons boxing module is designed as a two-week course comprised of eight 20-minute classes. It requires zero gear (its entirely shadowboxing, hitting the air rather than a heavy bag), and its appropriate for those with experience and those without. Each session is sequential, building on the last, literally from the ground up, from footwork to punches, combos, and beyond. We teach the basics and foundation of what boxing is from the first step to the very last step, he says.

Lopez is still a passionate fan of the sport, and while he gave up competing in amateur bouts, he can still rattle off a host of names and their virtues, from the jab of Oscar De La Hoya to the defense of Floyd Mayweather and the pure guts of Felix Trinidad. But hes as equally ready to espouse the sports unseen virtues that can be practiced even without setting foot in a ring. Boxing is the physical expression of fighting through things, he says, whether that might mean a tough week at work or a conflict with a supervisor. The beauty of it, he adds, is that you can make it what you want it to be.

Even if youve never thrown a punch (or, for that matter, ridden a stationary bike or run a mile on a treadmill), the progressive Peloton program can get you reaping the benefits of a boxers regimen without getting punched in the face. Aside from how fun it is, Lopez says, the benefits of boxing classes are a stronger body and mind, as well as a low impact form of active recovery. Youre also starting a pursuit that will never quite be perfected.

Boxing is an ever-growing sport, and you can always get better, he says. And that includes himself: I can still sharpen up my jab.

Whether you're a world-class athlete or simply trying to stay in shape, there's always a need to avoid added strain or prevent fitness-related injuries. If you ask VKTRY, the best athletic performance (and pain avoidance) starts right at the insole.

The overall result means you can work out or play at your peak, without worrying about burning out your body.

Wyze Cam is now the number one selling camera on all of Amazon, proving that people love awesome tech that anyone can afford. We have since taken that same philosophy and launched other smart home products including Wyze Bulb, Wyze Sense, Wyze Plug, and now Wyze Band.

Rhapsody Fitness helps stroke survivor defy the odds and make an amazing recovery – WCBD News 2

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) Crossfit athlete Jeffrey Fisher makes great strides after suffering a severe stroke in September 2011 that left him partially paralyzed, unable to speak, read or write.

I dont think they thought he was going to live through the night, said his wife Alice Fisher. And then he moved his left fingers.

Jeffrey was diagnosed with Aphasia, a brain damaging disorder that affects a persons ability to express speech.

After physicians learned more of his diagnosis, the consensus was that Jeffrey would not be able to communicate or move the right-side of his body after the first few months after his stroke.

Ive worked with Aphasia for over 50 years. If that person doesnt recover in the first 6-months it doesnt come back. You have what you have, said Speech-Language Pathologist Dr. Grace Privette- Farren.

However, Jeffrey and his wife Alice refused to accept the prognosis, and began to research alternative means while accepting the long road of recovery.

Over a decade, the pair went through 20 physicians, therapists and coaches.

Slowly but surely, Jeffrey made progress over the years, regaining his ability to speak and move little by little.

In life you have a choice. You cant control what happens to you, but you can always respond accordingly, said Jeffrey. I was going to go at it all the way. There aint no way Im giving up.

In continuing his progress, Jeffrey enrolled in a CrossFit class at Rhapsody Fitness in Charleston at the suggestion of his physician, Dr. Maysa Hannawi.

My mindset as a coach with people who come into the gym with impairments isok, well lets get you fit no matter what youre working with, says Rhapsody Co-Founder and Head Coach Alan Shaw.

Rhapsody Fitness is headquartered in Downtown Charleston and is one of South Carolinas fastest growing gyms. Rhapsody specializes in premier fitness coaching with 49 classes offered at their gyms which are open 24/7.

After two years, both Jeffrey and Alice are pillars of the Rhapsody CrossFit community.
