The rise of fitness trackers is more than just a trend or gimmick. Aside from tracking your steps and reminding you to move, fitness trackers can check your heart health, body temperature, and calorie consumption, among others. Indeed, these nifty gadgets can be life-changing and empower anyone to improve their health. Of course, there are countless health tools nowadays aside from the trusty Fitbit or Apple Watch. From devices that clear your lungs to smart weighing scales, here are some health-related gadgets you should consider getting:
Air purifier by Blueair
The air purifier by Blueair is a compact but powerful device that cleanses the environment of airborne pollutants — thus helping you breathe easier in your own home. Its three-part filtration system can catch up to 99% of common pollutants such as allergens, odours, smoke, mould spores, dust mites, and pet dander. It’s one of the quietest air purifiers and approved by Quiet Mark. Plus, it’s Energy Star-rated for energy efficiency, so you can keep it running the whole day without worrying about racking up your electricity bill. You can choose among four different sizes of the Blue Pure air purifier, depending on the size of the room you’ll be putting it in.
Phone sanitiser and charger by Olbio
To say that our phones are dirty is an understatement. We tend to put our phones on any surface without cleaning them after, and this has caused them to be dirtier than toilet seats. Cleanliness is all the more important now that we’re in a pandemic. So to help you constantly keep your phone squeaky clean, Olbio has combined a phone charger with a phone sanitiser in the shape of a vase. Just drop your phone in there so it can get cleaned while getting juiced up.
Heritage ring by Oura
Oura’s Heritage ring isn’t exactly cheap, but it’s not your typical wellness tracker either. It’s a ring that accurately monitors a lot of other vital signs. Rather than giving you raw data and comparing it to the general population, Heritage measures deviations from your baseline. It forces you to look at general trends rather than scrutinize daily data. For instance, one bad night of sleep doesn’t mess up your sleep score since the ring takes into account your past history as well. For women, it can detect when their period is coming. It can even detect possible COVID-19 symptoms and has been worn by NBA and WNBA players for this reason. Manufacturers are able to pack these powerful features in such a tiny device thanks to the continuously evolving technology behind its parts. We have rigid-flex PCBs to thank for better functionality from small gadgets. Printed circuit boards or PCBs are the heart of electronics, and they have since been designed to fit into the oddest and uniquely shaped contraptions (including rings).
Bluetooth face mask by MaskFone
Everyone is required to wear a face mask if they’re outside their own homes. However, if you’re working outside your home or are out on some errands, taking calls or listening to music might be tricky. To address this, MaskFone has created a face mask that has built-in Bluetooth earbuds, cable clips, and control buttons. That way, you can easily keep listening to music or answer your smartphone. You’ll be happy to know that the quality of the face mask is not compromised despite this innovation. Its 5-layer filtration system provides ample protection.
Humidifier by Dyson
Humidifiers prevent dry skin, alleviate snoring, loosen congestion, and help relieve asthma and allergy symptoms. Check out brands like Dyson, which is one of the most popular names on the market. Their devices are scientifically proven to boost hydration in the air and kill bacteria too. It’s important to note that they’re different from diffusers, which are designed to emit essential oils. If that’s what you’re looking for, you can look to brands like Vitruvi instead. They’ve got sleek devices that can provide relaxation benefits and enhance your room’s scent.
Fitbit Aria 2 smart scale by Fitbit
Smart scales aren’t new, but what makes the Fitbit Aria 2 different is it doesn’t simply weigh you. It also checks your heart rate, water percentage, body fat, bone mass, and muscle mass. It keeps a record of all this so you can compare them over time. This is especially useful for those who are working out or are tracking their weight loss. This smart scale can also distinguish measurements of different people, so multiple people can use it. The scale can connect to its accompanying free app on iOS or Android too. That way, you can share your data, set goals, and make reminders to achieve those goals.
As you can see, there are many gadgets and also accompanying apps that can keep you healthy. Some may be quite the investment, but it can be quite valuable to your well-being in the long run.
