We've all been there. You hit the fairway but you still have over two hundred yards to the hole. You cleared the bend so you have a nice view of the stick, so instead of laying up you decide to go for it. If you have the Adams Tight Lies Fairway Wood ($160) in your bag you know that next shot is going to rise from the fairway like a Zenith to its target. If you don't, well you know you'll probably top it and watch it dribble down the fairway leaving you another 150 to the hole. The Adams Fairway wood, with its inverted head, reduces turf resistance while adding more power at contact. It makes contact below the ball which results in fewer dribblers, no matter how bad the lie, which makes it a must have for any bag.
The Withings Activité activity tracking watch ($390) is the ideal smartwatch for those who still love the look and feel of a classic time piece. Activité is made with a Swiss made connected movement, certified for precision and long lasting accuracy. The movement is connected to your smartphone and automatically displays the exact time. Even if you go abroad it will automatically adjust to the correct time zone, anywhere in the world. While the secondary analogue dial let's you know how close you are to meeting your daily objectives. Activité is water-resistant to 5 ATM (good in the shower and a dip in the pool, but not much more) and is powered by a standard CR2025 cell which will last a full year. The wrist strap has quick release spring bars so you can change between the included French calf leather strap and plastic strap at a moments notice. Now for the smart part of the watch. Just like all activity trackers it has an embedded accelerometer that will track your steps, walking, running or swimming distance and calories burned. It also monitors your sleep cycles; time to fall asleep, and length of light and deep sleep. The Health Mate App allows you to setup and alarm clock which causes the watch to slightly vibrate when it goes off. The built-in vibrator also lets you know when you've reached each of your daily objectives, like number of steps or length of sleep. Activité is available in black or silver and will be available in fall of 2014. We'll let you when it drops.
If you haven't seen this movie then rent it right now. Slap Shot ($8) is regarded by some, as the greatest sports movie ever. The movie stars Paul Newman as the coach of the Chiefs, a struggling minor-league hockey team. In order to build up the attendance to the games he hires three brothers to take out the competition. The aluminum foil scene is quick, but it's an instant classic. The movie is moving, funny, and hard hitting. Like I said, if you haven't seen it order it today.
