A new update to this popular running app has an important new feature, letting three contacts of your choice track your location on the run.
When it comes to safety, most runners own a reflective vest or personal lights. However, there are some great—and discreet—products that extend beyond running that can keep you prepared to defend yourself at a time when you need it most. We found three new products that you probably don’t own yet—but should—to give yourself (and loved ones) peace of mind.
This little piece of jewelry packs a big punch. Created by ROAR for Good, you can wear it as a necklace, clip it to your purse or clip it to your shirt/pants and with the touch of a button, you have a personal alarm. It has two modes, a loud alarm or a discreet, silent alarm. In both cases, it pairs with your phone and will text your loved ones to let you know you need help. roarforgood.com
This alarm helps you deter danger and call for attention in emergencies. The alarm is audible up to 1,000 feet (300M) away and sounds continuously when the you pull the metal ring to activate. Once help arrives, you can insert the pin to stop the reusable alarm from sounding. The adjustable, weatherproof wrist strap features a reflective logo for enhanced visibility. sabrered.com
This safety gear fits in the palm of your hand for protection on the go. Pepper gel virtually eliminates airborne particles and wind blow-back, only affecting the target/person it directly contacts. These benefits make pepper gel ideal for outdoor use, with reduced chances of wind causing the spray to affect innocent parties, including the user. sabrered.com
