2. GoGolf GPS

You have the clubs, now it's time to get around the course with the help of an $89 device. I've tried a lot of these, but this works best.  The GoGolf GPS should be your new golf partner! It is unlike other range finders, as it audibly/verbally announces the distance to the center of the green and can even call out the distance of your last shot, at the touch of a button. This Bluetooth unit connects directly to the innovative GoGolf GPS app on your smartphone, so you never have to worry about taking out your phone while you're in the fairway or stuck in the rough. With access to all the information needed for more than 30,000 global golf courses, you will always know your distance to the pin. For just $89.95

5. The Edge Desk
$399 at

We know that “sitting disease” leads to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. And we also know, based on numerous scientific research studies, that sitting disease leads to an increased risk of cancer. In fact, according to Mayo Clinic, you can extend your life expectancy by two years just by cutting out three hours of television viewing time per day.
Launched on Kickstarter, The Edge Desk is the first desk-chair and easel all in one. Forget hours of assembly and hundreds of parts to manage, The Edge comes fully assembled right out of the box. Set up takes less than a minute and the ergonomic design provides for the most comfortable, productive work experience you’ve ever had. The patent-pending kneeling desk puts your back in a comfort first position removing pressure so work is fun!
The Edge Desk is the first kneeling desk ever created and is thought of as the “Most comfortable desk for productivity”! Kneeling desks improve posture, reduce lumbar pressure and lower back pain while increasing blood circulation.
