12 Best Smart Gadgets for Travelers

55785b54eb260e510b3aaede_details-travel-technology

Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you have to log off from your life.

  1. Take a vacation from smoking: Trying to kick the habit? Don’t leave home without Smokio, the vape pen that calculates how much money you’re saving compared with what you’d spend on cigarettes—cash that will come in handy on your next trip. (us.smokio.com, $80)
  2. Share your snaps anywhere: Zip is a mobile printer that syncs with your phone or tablet and spits out peel-and-stick Polaroids, so you can lift your selfie game to new levels. (polaroid.com, $130)
  3. A gym shirt that collects more than sweat: Flying to see clients needn’t be an excuse to slack off at the gym. Wear Athos as or underneath your exercise gear; snap in the Core device, and it’ll collect data (heart and breathing rates, etc.), letting you chart your progress on its app. (liveathos.com, $99 plus $199 for the Core)
  4. A game way to work out in your hotel: If you’re stiff after a flight, attach the Valedo’s sensors to your chest and lower back—they’ll direct an avatar on your iPad, Wii-style, as it wends its way through obstacle courses. You’ll stretch sore muscles without it feeling like exercise. (valedotherapy.com, $359)
  5. Protect your posture: Miss your standing desk? Pin Lumo Lift to your chest, and it’ll vibrate when you start slipping down your seat at the next all-day off-site. (lumobodytech.com, $80)
  6. Breathe easy on the road: Are you a three-for-the-road kind of guy? Breeze, a Bluetooth breathalyzer, lets you know when you’ll sober up—and in the meantime, it’ll help you find food nearby. (breathometer.com, $100)
  7. Keep a visual travel journal: Fasten the Narrative Clip 2 wherever, and it snaps pics automatically (for two days!) at a pace you preset. (getnarrative.com, $199)
  8. Yes, you can take your audiophile ways with you: Developed by Neil Young, Pono promises the highest-fidelity digital sound from one harvest moon to the next. (ponomusic.force.com, $399)
  9. Sleep soundly wherever you go: Noise-canceling headphones do only so much. SleepPhones slip over your eyes to block light and let you nod off to tunes on your side, which even earbuds don’t. (sleepphones.com, $40)
  10. Bring your own pedal: Connected Cycle, a clip-in replacement pedal (still in development), is for those who want to log routes, speeds, and calories burned—not just spin their wheels in a hotel gym. (connectedcycle.com)
  11. A homing beacon for your bags: Drop Trakdot into your checked luggage, and if the airline mistakenly sends it to Boston, not Austin, at least you’ll know where it is. (trakdot.com, $50)
  12. The little laptop charger that could: Traveling light? Dart is a quarter of the size of a typical power bar, guaranteeing that you’ll save space in your carry-on. (finsix.com, $89)

Plus: A Suitcase That Weights Itself: Bluesmart holds your stuff like other suitcases do—and can tell if you’re going to have to pay extra at bag check (it has an internal scale). It also locks from your phone, tells you where it is, and comes with a built-in battery to charge devices en route. Now if only it could fold a shirt. (bluesmart.com, $339)

WGY spoke with international fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat.com about Fashion Week, her best traveling tips, and her favorite places around the world.

WGY: Tell us about your experience at Paris Fashion Week… What were the highlights?
Paris Fashion Week was an amazing experience because I was able to form relationships with many high end international brands that I had yet to meet in person. I also got to attend the runway shows of some of my favorite brands like Louis Vuitton, Chloe,  and Stella McCartney. The nightlife was fun too. I felt like a local being there – it was 11 days!

WGY: What has the highlight of being a WGY member been so far?

Getting upgrades to Prince de Galles Paris hotel for the price of a standard room!

WGY: Would you recommend WGY to your friends and colleagues?
Yes, it’s an amazing experience with luxury perks and makes traveling that much easier!!

WGY: What new/emerging fashion brand or designer should we know about right now?
Gigi Burris for hats and accessories, Simon Miller for denim, and Charlie May this UK based designer for all clothing.

7 New York Fashion Week Survival Tips

Seen+Around+Lincoln+Center+Day+7+Fall+2011+wiv3vnnDYROl

New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off! Below are my Fashion Week Survival Tips. If you want to ask me any #NYFW questions (or any questions at all), tweet me @MicahJesse.

1. Pack & Carry a Survival Kit! If you’re going to be on the go, you’ll want to have some survival items ready to go such as: umbrella (snow! rain!), a pen, notepad, camera (other than your phone), deodorant, tooth brush, dry shampoo, Advil, comb, lipstick, chargers (iPhone, iPad, MacBook), etc.

2. Get as much sleep as possible! If you’re a blogger/editor/model/makeup artist or just a fashion fanatic, you may find it hard to find some time for ZzZ’s during all of the hoopla at Fashion Week. Don’t be afraid to take a night off, you party animal! You’ll really want to push for a realistic 5 hours (minimum) if you want to make it the entire week.

3. Take your vitamins! With the cold weather, lack of sleep, and consumption of alcohol and salty passed food at Fashion Week events, your body will inevitably lose steam… You’ll want to start your day by taking a multi, Vitamin C and D at the very least to keep your body in tip top shape.

4. Moisturize! Moisturize your face and lips because the central air in the tents and many of the venues will dry you out like the desert. Bring a bottle of Mario Badescu or your favorite skin care product in your bag.

5. Charge your devices the night before! Make sure your phone, iPad, MacBook, etc. are all charged up for the long day and night. Bring a charger or a Mophie case for extra support.

6. Make A Schedule! With so many events around town, you’ll want to make sure your schedule is on point so you’re not (fashionably) late. Spend a few days leading up to Fashion Week plugging all your dates, times and venues into your Google calendar. This will help ensure you don’t forget about your commitments or double book.

7. Your network is your net worth! You never know who you’ll be sitting next to at a runway show or bumping shoulders with at an after party. Say hello to everyone. Hand out your business cards. Send a follow up greeting.
