Google announces new Google Fit

Google has announced a redesign of their Google Fit app.

The new Google Fit is centred around two simple activity goals based on AHA and WHO’s activity recommendations shown to impact health.

Users can earn Move Minutes for all of their activity throughout the day. This can motivate users to make small changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or catching up with a friend over a walk instead of coffee, according to Google.

Health Points give users credit for those activities. Users will score one point for each minute of moderate activity. According to Google, it takes just 30 minutes of brisk walking 5 days a week to reach the AHA and WHO’s recommended amount of physical activity.

Google Fit also integrates with other fitness apps like Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo and MyFitnessPal, so users get credit for every Move Minute and Heart Point earned.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
