Whether you’re a drummer, DJ, vocalist, or just want to stay on-beat while performing or running, a wearable metronome — from watches to clip-ons — provides a steady tempo that you can feel. Traditional metronomes cover sight and sound, but can be drowned out by music and noise once you start playing, which is when you can slowly start to shift off-time. A wearable metronome takes the worry out of keeping pace, so you can always return to right where you should be. How to Pick the Best Wearable Metronome Here’s what to consider when choosing which wearable metronome is worth purchasing.

EXCLUSIVE: Nine days after Olivia de Havilland turned 102, the California Supreme Court has rejected the two-time Oscar winner’s desire to have them review her feud with FX Networks and Ryan Murphy over her depiction in the Emmy winning 2017 Feud: Bette and Joan anthology. “It is a sad day for Miss de Havilland and for the legal system,” the Hold Back the Dawn actress’ primary lawyer Suzelle M. Smith said bluntly to Deadline today. While a blow, the terse and unexplained “petition denied” from the Golden State’s highest court Wednesday hasn’t completely TKO’d the Hollywood legend’s aim to see the matter ultimately go to a jury trial.
