Gear Review: Rem-Fit Pillow and Activity Tracker

Share

IMG_1453

Sleep is probably one of the most overlooked aspects of many of our lives. We tend to think of it in our western culture as an afterthought, something we can get by with just enough. However, these days more and more people are putting more of a focus on their sleep and the quality of that sleep.

For me sleep has always been a critical aspect of my life, as an athlete and also as a writer and frequent traveler. When working on a project sleep is often the first thing that gets sacrificed as much as I hate to admit it. When traveling sleep can also be a challenge especially in my line of work where one trip my bed could be a hammock, bunk bed, or space on a floor.

Recently the company Rem-Fit sent me their 400 Series Adjustable Pillow to try out along with their Activity Tracker. This pillow combines a memory foam gel top to help regulate heat and cold as well as support clusters to control the firmness and thickness of the pillow. In other words, it kicks the crap out of my old pillows of micro-fill or whatever batting was in them.

 

Rem-Fit 400 Series Adjustable Pillow

12-1For the last couple of weeks, I have been testing the pillow each night and also during the day if I could sneak in a nap or two. What I noticed about the pillow was, once I found the right comfort level, as soon as I lay down I am in a comfortable position. The memory foam gives support where needed for this side sleeper.

As my comfort level has gone up using the Rem-Fit 400 Series Adjustable pillow I have found the occurrences of waking up in the middle of the night, have greatly decreased. The pillow is also hypoallergenic as well as the gel top helps control temperature.

 

Technology Features of the Pillow:

  • IMG_1457Re-Ax Fiber™ – This unique fiber reacts to one’s body during sleep and provides active moisture and heat transfer allowing for a cool sleep surface.
  • Contour Fit™ – The unique 4-way stretch creates an invisible and undetectable environment that contours to not only the sleeper but also the sleep surface, allowing for a free range of motion during sleep.
  • Repel Tech™ – Effectively prevents moisture from penetrating the sleep surface, preserving the comfort layers of one’s mattress, while also allowing the mattress to breathe. Efficiently blocks dust mites and allergens that live in beds from disturbing sleep.
  • Hi-Flow Knit™ – This unique knitting style allows for optimal air flow between the sleeper and the sleep surface, allowing for a cooler sleep environment while adding a layer of comfort.
  • Breez Tech™ – Allows for the best hot and cool air transfer. Allows the hot air to flow away from the sleeper and cool air to travel towards the sleeper. Also allows for the pillow to breathe efficiently, extending the life of one’s pillow.
  • Polyfil Fiber – This easily accessible innovative core, allows one to decide the right level of personalized support needed during sleep. Simply remove or add the incredibly soft micro-fill to find the ultimate comfort level.
  • REM-Fit’s patent pending Support Clusters offers an incredibly soft, yet supportive inner filing, aiding the sleeper in getting the most restful nights sleep possible.
  • Cooling Gel Top – Get a wonderful night’s rest with this gel top memory foam pillow. The gel pad disperses heat, offering a cooling sensation and is all wrapped up in a luxuriously soft keeping you comfortable all night long.

The Rem-Fit 400 Series Adjustable Pillow has become a favorite in our house. During our recent trip to my parents and a 4,500-mile road trip; more than once my partner tried to take the pillow away while traveling. It’s safe to say we both like the comfort it brings us as well as the incredible sleep! The pillow retails for $159.99 and is available on their website or other online retailers. It’s not a cheap pillow but considering we spend 1/3 of our life sleeping, it might as well be a good night’s sleep with quality products.

Activity Tracker

REMFit_Active_ImageA_NEW_LRem-Fit also sent along their 200 Series sleep and activity tracker along with the pillow. For those familiar with health trackers this seems to be similar. It tracks your daily steps, distance, calories burned, and also your sleep patterns. While you go about your day Rem-Fit 200, Series Activity Tracker continues to monitor your activity and pairs with an iPhone or Android device to keep track of your data. Each day you can set activity goals and earn points with the 360LifeScore that combines your activity as well as your sleep.

The product comes with two wristbands, a USB charging dock, and a belt clip. The battery lasts between 5-7 days depending on activities and wirelessly connects to your mobile device. It is also splash proof. The Tracker retails for $99.99 and is available on their website and other online retailers.

Overall

Overall, I love this pillow, and we are hoping to get the mattress from Rem-Fit as well to convert our entire sleeping experience to the most comfortable and relaxing sleep possible. For readers Rem-Fit is offering a code for 20% off at rem-fit.com for Dirt in Your Skirt readers: MS20.

    How much does the pillow cost? I have really bad insomnia and am wondering if it would help me. But I am also a pretty darn broke single mom. Does the company need/want any other testers?

    • More prototypes from @meanmugspotteryco - the same color glaze on each only one is a half dip and the other a full dip.
::
Half or Full?
::
Love sharing this process with the entire DIYS community!

    • The prototypes are in for the Dirt in Your Skirt mugs by @meanmugspotteryco
::
Weigh in and tell me what you think. Does one glaze stand out to you?
::
If you aren’t psyched about any let me know and we can try other glazed.
::
The women at Mean Mugs Pottery Co are awesome and so cool to work with. They let me stop by each step of the process and I will be documenting the production of the final product! And having them on the podcast.

But let me know what you think...

    • The smiles that happen when you watch your kids (dogs in my case) completely enjoy nature, you redefine your company’s mission, and get some vitamin D.
::
All on a quick 6.5 mile run this morning after finishing up @mudrunguide and Other projects before 9am.
::
But mostly the smile is from learning how to get out and go for a run without the “not good enough” self talk, without chasing some race goal, making sure I am in the right HR zone, doing it because it was on a schedule or any of the other reasons I once hit the trails.
::
These days I am slow, walk when I want, don’t have a training goal, stop when it’s not fun and really get outside without any purpose - other than fun.
::
I spent over 20 years following training plans and chasing that next PR.
::
It’s been a hard learning process just to get out for no other reason or purpose than you want to be there and want to be outside. No GPS watch, no strava, no pr’s, just me, my dogs, and the mountains.
::
I think the smile says it all.

    • Eight years ago today my life would forever change, without me knowing it at the moment.
::
I headed off to this @spartan thing outside of Burlington, Vermont. I had just come out of a pretty dark time that included, losing my job and home in one conversation, a brush with a near DUI, and a complete mental collapse.
::
I picked myself up after having to move back home for a couple months, spent time volunteering, became a certified wilderness EMT, and took a hard look at my life.
::
By chance a friend had “liked” this new kind of race and brand called Spartan Race. On a whim I signed up, out of shape, and in search of something.
::
These photos are from that first Spartan Race on May 16, 2010. Crossing the finish line I knew I found something. Not knowing what that something was yet...
::
In the last eight years, my life has transformed. New job, new home, a husband, dogs, cat, book, countless articles written, mentioned in numerous publications, and the latest my podcast.
::
If I had told that semi-broken young woman what lay ahead she won’t have believed you. I don’t believe it some days.
::
While I might not have the largest bank accounts or most followers or any of that. I do have a wealth of experiences and friendship that are the most important things in life.
::
I have created and shaped a life I want to live and continue the journey of self-discovery while being able to help others.
::
My takeaway is the smallest decision can profoundly change your life if you let it.
::
My heart continues to be filled with humble gratitude for the abundance in my life. I am forever grateful for that first race and the people (many who are good friends today) who put on that crazy first event in 2010.
::
Oh and we can look back at the obstacles and giggle as we see the progression of the sport and the @spartanrace brand.

    • Saying goodby sucks, but Puss Puss lived like a boss all the way to the end, capturing his last mouse just eight days ago.
::
This photo was taken yesterday by Forest as Puss Puss loved drinking out of the pond. We have him lots of love last night and let him go on his terms this morning completing the life/death cycle with grace.

    • This woman! @barbwirequeenofgreen of @wired.4.life she has been a friend since we met in 2012 at @spartanrace Tuxedo. I have watched her journey and learned so much from her.
::
While we might not see each other very much the connections run deep and still forever grateful that she was the first person to be on the podcast.
::
Everyone needs a friend like Andi, while we might not chat on the phone for hours or see each other much we support the work of one another completely.
::
I cannot wait to see her continue to develop her painting classes and yoga instruction and keep that barrel full!
::
For Patreon supporter tomorrow I will have a special catchup we recorded before she had to head to the airport.
::
Because when women support other women we all collectively are raised up.
