CTEK Fully Charged Contest

As we’ve written about in the past, CTEK battery chargers and maintainers have come in very handy for many snowmmobile riders. While we’d have no problem recommending you spend your hard earned money on one, free is certainly better.

For your chance to win some free CTEK goodies, head over to Facebook.com/SmarterCharger and enter the CTEK Living Life Fully Charged Contest. All you have to do is “like” the Facebook page and upload a picture of yourself with your snowmobile. The contest is open until March 31, 2014.

BearTek Gloves

Before you get out and ride your snowmobile this winter, you may want to look into a new piece of technology-heavy gear – BearTek gloves.

Most of us don’t typically think high-tech when it comes to gloves, but BearTek gloves are different. These gloves feature built-in technology that creates seamless single-handed control for your mobile phone and music.

“We can’t wait for skiers and snowboarders to hit the slopes this season with our innovatively designed in wearable technology,” says Willie Blount, founder and CEO of Blue Infusion Technologies. “We are ski and snowboard enthusiasts ourselves and worked hard to design gloves that make changing your tunes and answering calls easier and safer while you are on the mountain – now every other glove is obsolete.”

Garmin VIRB FrontGarmin is entering the action sports camera market with its new VIRB and VIRB Elite cameras offering features not seen on the current market leader – GoPro.

The Garmin VIRB features a waterproof housing, so there is no extra case necessary to withstand the elements. As well, it comes equipped with a 1.4-inch Chroma color display to make setup and playback simple. Other features include the ability to record up to three hours of 1080p video on one charge, digital image stabilization, lens distortion correction, 16-megapixel photos (even while video is recording), built-in WiFi, data sensors and a high-sensitivity GPS. Both VIRB and VIRB Elite feature ANT+ connectivity for remote control functionality with other Garmin products, and for data transfer with other fitness sensors.

“Action cameras are growing rapidly in popularity, and VIRB has some game-changing key features – like a color display, extended battery life, optional GPS and compatibility with existing Garmin products – that set it apart from other cameras on the market,” says Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Our customers already embrace an active lifestyle, whether they’re hikers, mountain bikers, skiers, trail runners, boaters, or pilots, so a Garmin action camera is a compelling option to them. With GPS and enhanced wireless capabilities in VIRB Elite, users can capture not only what they were doing, but also where they were and how they did it—and then share it with their friends and family.”
