The BlackBerry Z10

I’m gonna brag for a sec… as you know I’m a Verizon Wireless Lifestyle Blogger, and with that comes lots of perks, products and hanging out with some cool peeps.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that the BlackBerry Z10 launched in March. I had the opportunity to meet up with fellow ambassadors last month to learn all about the new BlackBerry Z10 and guess what? Oh yeah I got one too.

Thursday night we all had an amazing dinner at Café Un Deux Trois  followed by cocktails at the Paramount Hotel (where we stayed).

Friday we spent the day at a Verizon store in NYC learning all about the company, new products and more. That was when I received the new BlackBerry Z10.

Ok so here’s the scoop. I love my iPhone, but I have to tell you that this phone kind of reminded me of it with how user friendly it is.

I have 2 fave features. One is the fact that I can create a document (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and send it in a variety of ways (via text, email, etc.). I think this is a great feature for business owners especially.

The second feature I love is the Share Your Story feature. With this feature you can take photos and then upload them into this app and make it a movie, complete with background music. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this feature. Perfect for vacations, if you’re on the go, anything and super easy to use. All you have to do is upload the photos, give it a title, pick background music and then you can upload it to your social media networks, email it, post to YouTube, anything. Did I mention I love it?

Ok, so I’m kinda bad at taking photos, but I did take a few during my NYC Verizon trip and I uploaded them in to the Share Your Story feature.

Seriously how cool is this?

 

If you are a photo junkie or business owner you seriously need this phone. There are so many cool things you can do with it. What are you waiting for? Check out the BlackBerry Z10 HERE site to learn more.

Getting Fit with the FitBit Zip

6 weeks ago I joined a gym. Work Out World, cause I’m Jersey Strong. I absolutely love it! It was finally time for me to get healthy, get in shape and lose this weight. So far I’ve been sticking to the treadmill and I keep upping my pace, incline and the amount of time I’m on the treadmill.

 

I also use the app My Fitness Pal to track my fitness, food, etc. I love that I can use it on my phone (especially since its always with me). My doctor had recommended My Fitness Pal to me and is a huge advocate of this app.

So when Verizon sent me the FitBit Zip I was thrilled. What perfect timing! Not only can I track my fitness while at the gym but also throughout the day as I just keep it on and it tracks my steps, distance, etc. all day. At the end of the day I just put my Fit Bit next to my computer and it automatically syncs wirelessly.  Easy Peazy!

 

What’s even better is that I can export my FitBit information into My Fitness Pal. Amazing! It also works with other apps including:  Lose It, Run Keeper, Map my Fitness, Endomondo and Spark People.

FitBit also allows you to earn badges for your successes, challenge friends and more.

 

If you have made the choice to start getting healthier, or if you have already been on the right path, the FitBit is for you. It’s a super easy way to track your progress and stay motivated as well as challenge yourself. Let’s face it we are all a little competitive even with ourselves.
