We exercise our body on a daily basis either through walking or otherwise. These exercises that we perform keep our physical bodies healthy and at the ready. However, it should be noted that the body is not only physical but also a combination of the spiritual and mental aspects.

Doing physical exercises and reading can both be done at their own designated time. What if you could do them both at the same time? To many this may sound impossible due to the vigorous movements made during a workout that would make reading quite difficult. This is not entirely true.
One tech company by the name of Weartrons Labs has devised the perfect wearable gadget that will enable its wearers to perform both activities simultaneously. This unique wearable gadget is the Run-N-Read. As the name suggests, the Run-N-Read enables its users to combine both physical activities with reading.
