Open your eyes…. Dammit kid open your eyes. Open your eyes. He tried to blink, he tried to open his heavy eyes. His mouth was parched and felt a mineral taste in his mouth, which he continuously, involuntarily gulped hard. He felt a soft burn in his chest and more rushing, swishing noises blend in a hazy discord. Having the need to pull himself up, he planted his palms firmly on a wobbly, wet surface and tried to push himself, but can’t. He tries to pull his head towards its direction, wanting to know who said that and to ask why he wanted to be pulled down. Why down , when all he can feel, all he wanted is to go up. Noah felt himself flying–floating on air. I still want to fly… I still want too…. He fight the delirium and the sudden pang of fear inside, but the struggle was futile, as he finds himself sinking, sinking deep with a tear that runs from the bridge of his nose, across his cheeks, until he hears it plop bluntly on his ear. Noah tried to blend in with the crowd. Age fourteen and in need of good company, he tried and do everything to catch someone’s attention. try and use swear words that were commonly used by the cool kids at school.
The latest crop of wearable fitness trackers seem to have matured and the top rated trackers now offer heart rate tracking, on the wrist. I own a Fitbit Zip , which is a basic but decent tracker, but since I bought an iPhone 6 a few months back I haven’t bothered with the Zip and have been relying on the iPhone’s motion co-processor for step and stair flight counting. Mine is often charging, or left on a desk or table when I’m moving about and so the step count isn’t wholly accurate. This is where the advantages of a dedicated tracker come to the fore, one that is designed for a specific body part, that is meant to be worn 24/7. I’d seen the pre-release information from Fitbit about their new crop of trackers: Charge , Charge... The Charge is an “activity + sleep wristband” so the HR version obviously adds heart rate monitoring (and has a different band, with a watch-like pin and buckle arrangement to its strap) and Fitbit describes the Surge as a “fitness super watch”. I wanted a tracker with a heart rate monitor and knowing my current level of athleticism I decided to go for the Charge HR rather than the Surge.
