Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds was spotted in Bedford, New York recently.

What was he doing so far away from sunny El Lay??

He was walking his doggy Baxter!! His dog is such a cutie fuzzball!

Though Ryan is more our style of cutie!

What's that on Ryan's arm? That looks like the new Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Wristband!

It's a wristband you can wear all the time that not only tracks your level of activity though out the day, but also how well you sleep at night!

That's so cool! It can apparently even silently wake you and not your partner if you're sleeping next to a special someone.

Like when Ryan and his cute doggy Baxter snuggle at night! (Maybe, we don't know.) LOLz!

Check out some more pics (below) of Ryan and his doggy!

New Wristband Will Track Users Health And Fight Obesity

Filed under: Tech TalkFitnessHealth

Jawbone Up

This. Is. So. COOL!!!

Technology may be catching up to the growing rates of obesity across the globe. By the end of 2011, an innovative new sensor equipped wristband called "Up" will be available to track your eating, sleeping, and activity patterns!

Announced on Friday, the wristband being developed by an electronics company called Jawbone is being described as:

"The Up's sensors collect data about how much you've been sleeping and how much you've been moving. That data is then fed into a smartphone app, which also takes in information about your meals. (You enter meal data manually, in part by taking pictures of what you've eaten.) Based on all that information, the smartphone program provides "nudges" meant to help you live healthier, day by day. For example, if you haven't slept much, when you wake up the app might suggest a high-protein breakfast and an extra glass of water."

Simply incredible!

Travis Bogard, Jawbone's VP of product management, says his company is trying to develop a practical way to fight obesity, explaining:

"The CDC says that for the first time in history, lifestyle diseases such as diabetes are killing more people than communicable diseases. We're trying to solve that problem."

The best part? It will be "affordable" and almost completely unnoticeable on your wrist, as Bogard continued to explain:

"It's about the same size as a Livestrong band. I've worn it constantly for the last two months, even in meetings where we were talking about the product to raise financing. But no one noticed. That tells us the product is working as we intended."

Jawbone has not given a specific release date for Up, but one thing is for sure…

We. Can. Not. WAIT!!!
