Hi there! My name is Dr Richard Harkness and I am a medical doctor in the UK (General Practionner ) but also a freelance writer, blogger and occasional podcaster. I am fascinated in wearable technology and hopefully how this can improve our fitness and lives.

  1. Hi Richard
    Like the style and readability of your articles. And the title of the website – wish I had thought of that!

      Thanks! It took quite a long time to come up with something fitting that nobody had already used. Just thought you might enjoy my posts I did about getting away from it all when I stayed in a remote Northumberland cottage alone for a week with almost no technology! That experience changed me a lot as well. It’s on my original website http://areyougettingit.co.uk/?p=172 . There are a few posts and one follow up a year later. Sorry the pictures are broken. Must get round to fixing that one day as they were good photos!

      Love the photos on your site too and interesting content. Loved the quote about twisting like wood in the fire I think it was. I’m not the person I thought I would become and that’s fine with me!

    Just wanted to thank you for the reasonable, professional, and very helpful comments on your video describing the pros and cons of the pebble time steel vs. Asus ZenWatch 2. Your comments led me to decide for the time steel based on my needs and your experiences.
    I liked and subscribed.
    Also, excellent voice/timbre/tone, and cool accent too – somewhere North, obviously, but my American perspective can’t locate ; Mancunian? Sorry if that is way off, but I was there recently and thought I heard similarities.
    Finally, that sofa! Where did you get that sofa? I realize that this sounds crazy, but we’ve been looking for that exact style!

      Sorry for the delayed response and thank you! I’m from the North East of England.

      That sofa is actually a sofa bed! It was bought from a UK sofa store. I very much doubt they ship ha ha!
