Atlas Wristband2

We love fitness bands and apps here at How To Kill An Hour but there weren’t any that accurately measured how many reps you were undertaking while weightlifting.

Well that’s changing with the Atlas Wristband2.

  • To reach your goals, you need to start tracking your workouts. Atlas Wristband2 removes the burden of manual tracking entirely. It is the only fitness wearable that automatically identifies your exercises, then records reps and essential data to showcase your workouts in unprecedented detail. Calories and heart rate are just the beginning.
  • When you buy an Atlas, you’re buying an ever-evolving ecosystem. Your Atlas app will notify you when there are new exercises, expanded metrics and additional features available. Just a tap to accept the updates and WHAM! – your Atlas is better than ever.
  • Choose from workouts specifically mapped to help you tone up, slim down, add bulk, build endurance and more.
  • Wherever you are, welcome to the Atlas Sweat Lab. As our community grows, so does our exercise library and efficacy.
  • Just strap it on and go! Atlas is ready to track at your own pace and in any order you want.

  •  See which muscle groups you worked at a glance or dig deeper and swipe back in time to compare your heart rate, caloric burn and velocity data. Build Custom Workouts with a few taps and explore and learn new exercises in the Exercise Guide

(UPDATE) Drone Racing

This is an old article from 30th March 2016. It includes a link to hear Marcus Bronzy chatting to James Trew of Engadget chatting about drones and much much more! 

It’s boring being an adult, look at how cool these toys are!! Big boys and our drone racing, drone flying, drone everything toys!! These crazy people are racing drones now!

Skilled pilots fly quad-copter drones through real life courses at speeds up to 120mph. The drones are custom built for speed, agility, and performance & these crazy son’s of naughty words are real life pilots! Steering from the point of view of the drone by wearing First Person View (FPV) goggles that display a live image transmitted by an onboard camera.

Flying a drone competitively at high speed in FPV is an intense, immersive experience.

I don’t know about you but I want a go NOW!
