It’s almost time to start making those New Year’s resolutions for 2019. One of the best promises you can make to yourself is to get in shape and maintain good health. Fortunately, this is getting easier thanks to modern technology. These days, tech gadgets can help you with just about every area of health and fitness, from eating right to taking care of your skin. Here’s a rundown on some of the latest gadgets to help you get into shape and stay healthy.
Protecting Your Skin
Makeup manufacturer L’Oreal has branched out with a new device that can help protect you from the sun’s damaging UV rays. The L’Oreal UV Sense is a tiny battery-free wearable that you can wear on your sunglasses or even a fingernail. The miniature electronic sensor is only 9mm in diameter and 2mm thick. It measures UV exposure and transmits the information to an app on your phone to give your warnings about your sun exposure.
Protection From Food Allergies
Having a food allergy can range from tricky to downright dangerous, especially if you like to eat out. But now it doesn’t have to be if you carry a portable allergy sensor such as Nima’s portable gluten tester or their peanut tester. Simply place a small sample of food on the sensor and the device will let you know if it is safe to eat. These devices could be great for school children with allergies.
Keep Track of your Fertility
Women who are trying to get pregnant know that there is only a small window of opportunity every month, and then they have to wait until next time. But EarlySense Precept can make it much easier for you. You simply position the monitor under your mattress for three months. While in place, it uses artificial intelligence (AI) to collect information about your fertility while you are sleeping. It does so by paying attention to your heart rate and respiration. It connects with a smartphone app so that it can alert you of your six-day fertility window, so that you can be ready to seize the next opportunity.
Get in Shape, Stay in Shape
If you’ve been slacking on your exercise regime over the holiday season, but you are still determined to get in shape, then you may want to check out the PowerDot. The device uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to activate the fibers in your muscles, enabling them to strengthen and recover faster. You just attach the PowerDot to the muscles you wish to work out and control your workout via an app on your smartphone. So, you can do all the hard work without going to the gym. It does make you feel like you’ve had a workout and it’s small and compact, so you can carry it along with you on your travels.
Keep Track of Your Fitness
The Ionic is currently Fitbit’s most advanced fitness watch. It’s so much more than just a timepiece; it can keep track of your fitness all day long. It can provide you with dynamic personal coaching every step of the way based on your personal feedback. It allows you to store and play more than 300 songs and has a built-in GPS which will allow you to see your distance, pace, elevation climbed, and a map of your route. As well as collecting and collating information about your activities and fitness levels, the Ionic will also track your sleep stages and give you personalized insights to help you improve your quality of sleep. The Ionic wirelessly auto-syncs all your information to your computer, phone or tablet on Android, Windows, and iOS devices.
