a good job of tracking your steps and logging runs, and will even measure 
your sleep.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s not Bluetooth-equipped; instead it uses an audio jack to plug into your phone for a quick sync, battery check or change of alarm time.

Not sleeping well? It&rsquo;ll give you tips on diet to help you kip.</p> <p>Then there&rsquo;s the brilliant power-nap mode, which clocks when you nod off, allowing you 45 minutes of shuteye so you awake alert.

Well, says Nike, by using such futuristic construction techniques the boot will fit around your feet like a glove, creating a second skin &ndash; or sock-like feel &ndash; while simultaneously delivering the strength, structure and support needed to play ball.</p> <p>Ultimately, the material is designed to bring your foot closer to the ball for enhanced control, and Nike is so confident about its ability, it&rsquo;s claiming &ldquo;no other boot will get your foot this close to the ball.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s like wearing a glove,&quot; says Phil McCartney, Nike&#39;s VP of sport performance footwear. &quot;A glove starts at the wrist, not halfway up the hand. You need that transition so you don&rsquo;t disrupt your body&rsquo;s natural movement. The mid-cut allows the foot, ankle, and lower leg to work together as a single unit, emphasising their natural movements. This isn&rsquo;t a boot that just goes on your foot, it&rsquo;s a boot that works with your foot.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike Magista knitted football boots" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-005.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> STRONG IN THE TACKLE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to Nike, the web-like 3D-knit material on top gives you &quot;a more aggressive texture to create friction on the ball for accurate dribbling and striking.&quot; Great - but surely that&#39;s at the expensive of protection and durability? Not so. Nike assures us that the Magista retains the strength and protection of a conventional boot. Brio cables have also been knitted directly into it, creating strength in the way that a suspension bridge works.</p> <p>So while the Nike Flyknit technology provides a lighter, more comfortable ride, if you come into contact with a player&rsquo;s studs, there&rsquo;ll be no reason to dramatically feign injury while rolling on the floor. Well, none other than the usual ones like trying to win a free kick or get an opponent sent off.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/nikes-power-laces-coming-2015-just-time-marty-mcfly/news" target="_blank">Nike&#39;s Back To The Future power laces coming in 2015</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike Magista knitted football boots" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-010.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HIGH-TOP OF THE LEAGUE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The use of Nike&rsquo;s FlyKnit tech isn&rsquo;t the only awesome thing about the Magista&rsquo;s design. When was the last time you saw a football boot with a high-top design? According to Nike, that&rsquo;s a Dynamic Fit collar, to give you a locked-down fit and flexibility of movement.</p> <p>But how will they fare on a squelchy, sodden pitch on a Sunday morning? NIKESKIN&rsquo;s your answer. It&rsquo;s a 0.1mm thick layer that essentially melts on to the knit to protect the boot and prevent water damage.</p> <p>If you&#39;re still struggling to believe that a knitted boot - did we mention they&#39;re knitted? - will help you achieve footballing glory, maybe a few half-decent players can convince you.&nbsp;&ldquo;Unbelievable&rdquo;, &ldquo;perfect&rdquo; and &ldquo;futuristic&rdquo; were just some of the words used to describe the Magista boots by Barcelona&rsquo;s Andrés Iniesta and Bayern Munich&#39;s German forward Mario Götze, who have worked closely with Nike bods during the boot&rsquo;s four-year development.</p> <p>&ldquo;The fit of this boot is so unique that I don&rsquo;t think about it when I&rsquo;m wearing it,&rdquo; says Iniesta. &ldquo;It allows me to move the way I need to instinctively and with more confidence.&rdquo;</p> <p>Nike says &ldquo;football will never be the same again&rdquo;, which is a pretty bold statement to make. But with Adidas also revealing its own knitted boot earlier today in the form of the Primeknit FS, there&rsquo;s no denying that footie footwear is undergoing its biggest change since the days when players wore pigs&#39; stomachs on their feet. Or maybe we&#39;re remembering that wrong.</p> <p>Either way, the Nike Magista boots will be available for pre-order on April 29 &ndash; just don&rsquo;t expect to play like Iniesta every time you slip them on.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/it-s-round-it-bounces-it-s-called-brazuca-introducing-new-world-cup-football/feature" target="_blank">Meet Brazuca, the 2014 World Cup football</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Barcelona&#039;s Andres Iniesta helps launch the Nike Magista knitted boot" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-012.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/nike-unveils-knitted-magista-boots-ahead-world-cup/news#comments Health and fitness Nike Sport Wearable tech Thu, 06 Mar 2014 18:57:17 +0000 Nigel Yap 1433381 at http://www.stuff.tv The X-Jetpack H3X Hydro will turbo-boost you to new heights http://www.stuff.tv/my/x-jetpack-h3x-hydro-will-turbo-boost-you-new-heights/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Houston, we have lift-off </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="The X-Jetpack H3X Hydro will turbo-boost you to new heights" alt="The X-Jetpack H3X Hydro will turbo-boost you to new heights" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/xjetpacks%2002.jpg?1393395896" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/elissa-loi" title="View user profile.">Elissa Loi</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What is with this piece of newfangled torture gym equipment? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Wrong on so many counts, except one.

Best thing to do is at least try to minimise your injury and a good way to do that is with athletic tape.</p> <p>KT Tape Pro is supposedly the world&rsquo;s only 100 per cent synthetic kinesiology tape that is engineered to work in a variety of environments. I&#39;m not too sure how it&#39;ll do in the cold mountains or the hot sahara, but I do know it works on the court.</p> <p>Slapping on the tape at targeted areas will keeps sore muscles at bay, and your joints and tendons protected. So less injury means more chances you get to go on court. The KT Tape Pro is also pretty tough, lasting up to seven days per application. Just a word of warning, it may be tough and it can help prevent injury, but that doesn&#39;t mean you should play like a maniac on court.
