Welcome to Impulse, your one-stop shop for gadgets, gizmos and gear. Compiled by staff writer Erik Stordahl, Impulse provides you with the latest and greatest and what’s currently hot on the market.
Since we’re in the dog days of summer, we’re offering up some summer-y products.
JLab Go 4GB Waterproof headphones
Listen to your tunes while swimming laps or scouring the surface of your pool for loose change. It can withstand all heavy conditions AND it’s wireless. It’s a must-have especially for triathletes in training.
Cool Aide Cooling Sports Towels
We’re not scientists so we don’t know exactly how or why this works. Just rinse it in water and shake out the excess water and moisture and you have a towel that will cool your body temperature up to 20 degrees. A nice feeling when you’ve been baking in the sun all day.
MLB Bar and Bistro Aprons
If you don’t own or work at a bar or bistro, then this item might be useless to you. But if you’re delusional and a diehard, then you won’t be stopped from picking up one of these. Pick your favorite team and invite a bunch of your friends over for the big game and take their orders. They’ll get a kick out of it.
With baseball as the only game in town right now (we can only handle so much of NBA free agency and NFL training camps that seem like it’s never coming), you need to rep your team with Fan Bands. Grab one or even two so that both wrists are properly adorned for game action. Go to FanBand.net to get yours.
Taking the World by Storm
The community event is back for the third time on Aug. 3 at Tesoro Fields in Concord. California Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla is hosting this exciting free soccer clinic for girls. The clinic will be led by the California Storm, a semi-pro women’s soccer team. Through pre-registration, 200 girls ages 10-16 will participate in the clinic. The goal is for the girls to learn fundamentals but also to have confidence instilled on and off the field.
