CUT­TING THE ROPE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

If you have been skip­ping the skip­ping rope in your ex­er­cise reg­i­men due to the fears of trip­ping on the rope, maybe you should get a Portron­ics Wire­less. This Wire­less skip is a skip­ping rope with­out the rope. The rope is vir­tual.

The han­dles are light weight and com­pact, so as to eas­ily slip in­side and gym bag or jacker. A dis­play has been added to one han­dle and shows and records fea­tures such as weight, skip count, calo­ries burnt and work­out time.

All this sounds good on pa­per, but us­ing the wire­less skip isn't even near the ex­pe­ri­ence of us­ing the ac­tual thing. Some­how, the strength and ef­fort needed with the reg­u­lar rope wasn’t re­quired for the wire­less ver­sion. The lack of a rope to jump over failed to in­spire us to put in the ef­forts needed on a real skip. It is much eas­ier skip­ping this

way.
