Walk Yourself Thin with Striiv
You know how I'm able to tell that a gadget is a total hit with my family? Simple - when everyone fights over it. That's exactly what happened when I received Striiv - a super cool device that tracks your footsteps, knows when you're climbing stairs or running and puts you through challenges that will help make our world a better place.
The great thing about Striiv is that it shows you how walking can lead you to your fitness goals. The first day I tried it out, I took it along with my family on a trip to New York City and within a matter of six hours, I walked more than 10,000 steps - the equivalent of climbing the Eiffel Tower! That's the great thing about Striiv - it literally compares your strides to climbing mountains or traversing the world's landmarks. Plus, the more you challenge yourself, the more points and rewards you earn. Sure, they're virtual rewards but the amazing thing is that Striiv has partnered with GlobalGiving which means that every step you take will lead to a charitable donation.
Striiv retails for $99 and is currently available for purchase on their website.
