Fashion: Get your dancing shoes on
The vogue for retro high-top trainers shows no sign of abating and Reebok is the master of the sneakerhead style. The new Dance trainer has been formulated for Zumba and studio work-outs but will walk just as well on pavements to give you a stage-tastic spring in your step. £60, very.co.uk

App watch: Waze
in the world of free voice-enabled satnavs, Google Maps is king. But give Waze a whirl. It monitors user movements and allows you to update traffic status: real-time data (up to a point) sees journey times and routes are altered accordingly. It's not all great: keep an eye on route selection. Otherwise, it's impressive.
