Our squad of testers put the latest running and fitness gear to the sweat test to determine the winners of our 2017 Tech Awards.
“First thing I will say—I do not recommend this sports bra for running if you need support. I do, however, recommend this for your back pocket of yoga gear. I do hot yoga several times a week, and I almost always use this bra for my practice. It’s so comfortable and covers everything up when you’re doing those crazy pretzel poses without a shirt because it’s too damn hot.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor
“Monitor your sun exposure in real-time. The Sunclipse Shadow lets you know when its time to reapply your sunscreen, so you can prevent painful burns. It also syncs up with the Sunclipse app which lets you know when you’ve had too much skin exposure. Great tool for any one who spends a great deal outside.” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
“After a very extensive search (read: I’ve tasted them all) I found the best pumpkin yogurt. No contest, Noosa Pumpkin Greek Yoghurt is where it’s at. This version has pumpkin on the bottom so you can mix it together or get a little of the plain and pumpkin on your spoon at the same time.” —Monica Olivas, Team WR contributor and blogger at Run Eat Repeat
“A couple of years ago at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon, my husband surprised me with this amazing Lagos necklace to mark my 26th marathon! It’s something that has been very special to me and makes me smile whenever I wear it. Lagos makes them for a handful of the major cities—including Philadelphia, Las Vegas, New Orleans, New York City, Seattle and Chicago—around the U.S., which also happen to be where many of the major U.S. marathons are held. It’s a wonderful gift for someone you love who is completing their first marathon or one that has a special meaning!” —Dorothy Beal, Team WR contributor and blogger at Mile Posts
“Working at home, my sleep is never consistent. Some nights I get my best work done late and sleep in and others I am expected at an early morning fitness class with a friend. Thanks to this sleep tracker, I can keep an eye on how solid my sleep was the night before and know if I will be stressed or need to get to bed a bit earlier for some extra shut-eye.” —Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor
