A DEDICATED SPACE FOR ALL THINGS TECH

TESTEDRATED

STYR LABS STARTER KIT

RRP: STARTS FROM AROUND £52

More and more fitness tech companies are building “ecosystems”: creating ranges of products – both physical and digital – that work together to help you understand more about your health.

Enter STYR Labs, which is offering a suite of products – an activity tracker, a set of smart scales and an app – while tying in some customised vitamins and proteins.

The company offers two packages – the Multivitamin Starter Kit (which comes with an activity tracker and single-serving sachets of vitamins) and the Protein Starter Kit, complete with smart scales and protein powders. All the supplement recommendations are based on data harvested by the devices and answers you give to in-app questionnaires.

It’s an interesting concept – pairing technology with nutrition – and one that no one else seems to be doing right now. However, aside from having a great app, none of the other STYR devices are best in class. The activity tracker is very basic and the scales don’t come near to the Withings Body Cardio in terms of quality. To make this a truly great ecosystem, STYR Labs needs to back up its good ideas with some truly innovative technology. styr.com

About Men's Running

The temperature may be dropping but, unlike bears and bats, real runners don’t hibernate. Quite the opposite. The autumn and winter months are, in fact, when the fun begins. To inspire you to take the season by storm, this issue is packed full of adventure-aiding advice. And the good news is, you don’t have to travel far to find it. You could, for example, try your hand at some local fastpacking. (That’s the hybrid of running and backpacking, by the way, not hurriedly cramming your belongings into a suitcase.) For the price of a cheap train ticket, ultrarunner Matt Maynard fastpacked his way along the 153-mile North Downs Way, chopping his toothbrush in half in a bid to cut down any extra weight. On page 52, he tells you all you need to know about the art of travelling fast and light. Speaking of fast and light, we caught up with two Olympians who embody both those qualities: new 400m world record holder Wayde Van Niekerk and rising star of British marathon running Callum Hawkins. Although they specialise in very different disciplines, they both have some lessons for us mere mortals. A lesson that many runners – including this one – have failed to grasp, is the art of the B race. Getting these warm-up races right can be a great launch pad to success, while getting them wrong can be a real confidence-crusher. On page 60, Damian Hall tells you how to strike a balance. So embrace the colder months and enjoy this issue – it’s a brrr-illiant one.
