X Marks the Spot

random commentary on life, the universe, and anything


these are the productivity tools I use:

these are a few of my favorite things:

  • fitbit – I went through 2 3 4 5 fitbit ultras and kept losing them in airports or in transit. It was just a accelerometer with some bells and whistles built-in, and it linked to the fitbit site where you can see all the data visually. It synced via usb. It also integrated with RunKeeper which is where I log my walking/running activities. When I actually do something, I mean. But I loved it to death. I’m now on my second third fitbit alta. Lost the first two in airports (SNA at TSA and DFW somewhere running through terminal D) before I discovered that there was such a thing as an aftermarket band replacement. Lifechanging. When it starts to fall off, I throw another band on. 10 for $17.99 (https://amzn.to/2KPBGgk)! It motivates me. Fitbit customer service is amazing though.
