Hey,

If you're looking to track your health with a wearable, I've made a comparison of the Garmin Vivofit 2 against the first edition released last year.

Looking for a wearable to measure your running activity? I've compared the Charge HR against the Surge, two fresh wearables from Fitbit.
Available to buy, Fitbit are building on the success of their Flex wearable with fresh products boasting new technologies.

If you want something different to your usual supermarket, check out Vanessa. Based opposite the Market Cross, the Delicatessen has a great range of products sourced locally. From bread to cheeses to cured meats the shop has plenty of choice at a reasonable price. There's also a few oddities in there, I quite like the chilli jam they range. Upstairs there's a cafe, where I had a tasty carrot cake and a cup of tea. The staff were polite and punctual. Overall a really nice place that fits in well with Beverley's traditional character.
