This app has gotten great reviews not just by users but by the Washington Post, Men’s Health and The New York Times. Although I have only used this once this week, I’d like to experiment more with it. Using the songs on your iPhone, PaceDJ will change your music to sync with your pace while running, walking or biking. If you need suggestions for songs to match your pace, on PaceDJ’s website, you can view suggested playlists based on your BPMs and purchase songs off a link. Pretty cool idea. I do wish that this app could interact with Spotify or a similar music streaming service to create a playlist based on your BPMs.
The Nathan SpeedDraw Plus Insulated water bottle combines the best features of both of my handheld water bottles – and more! At 18 oz, this is more than double the size of the little QuickShot Plus; however, its slim design seems like it would comfortable to carry, fitting into the curve of your hand. The QuickDraw Plus. isn’t designed as well to fit into a hand. In addition to its shape, I love that it’s insulated and has a large pocket on the front (wonder if an iPhone would fit?). This could be the perfect water bottle to carry for half marathons as I’ve found the smaller size Nathan bottle just not big enough for that distance. I don’t own this product yet but have always been very satisfied with Nathan products and hope to try this out soon!
