Want to manage your eating portions? Get HAPIfork, a gadget that can help you reduce your eating pace. The fork’s sensors notify you through tiny vibrations when you’re ‘speeding’. It can also track your eating duration, the amount and intervals of ‘fork servings’ per minute.
All your data can be tracked with the accompanying app and transferred with a mini USB. The ‘sensors’ of the HAPIfork is hidden in the body but can be removed for safe washing. [$99]
The Finis Neptune is a waterproof MP3 player that provides the highest quality sound in the water without the use of ear buds. It uses revolutionary Bone Conduction audio transmission to transmit crystal clear audio through the cheekbones directly into the inner ear. With 4GB of storage, aquatic athletes can listen to music, audio books, podcasts and more, all with incredible sound quality. The included charging cable also allows for quick song upload to the device. The 3-piece design has 2 side speakers and a high contrast OLED screen that sits comfortably on the back of the head. The screen shows the song, artist and play status for each use. Neptune attaches securely to goggle straps and rests on the cheekbones as to not interfere with swimming technique. [$159.99]
For the health and fitness minded, water is essential to everything in life. The Umoro One is not only an elegantly portable water bottle, but at the press of a button transforms into an unrivaled blender bottle!
The bottle functions like any other bottle, but with a push of a button, it can release up to1.5 scoops of your favorite whey protein mix. It’s great for use in the gym during workouts and having that post workout drink right after without having to carry multiple bottles around.
The ‘ball’ that holds the supplement in also acts as a mixer for those harder- to-dissolve powder drinks. The bottle comes in black or white and is sold at a very reasonable price. [$25]
FITBIT CHARGE HR
Rather than just tracking how many steps you take, the Fitbit Charge HR can see exactly how hard you’re working. It allows far more accurate estimate of the number of calories that you burn. You can also track your resting heart rate – hopefully seeing it fall as you get fitter. The measurement is taken while you sleep as it’s the most relaxed and inactive you get. [$129.99]
With the Reliefband, you can say goodbye to your motion sickness. It looks just like a watch, except it has five different settings to help with your sickness. Pick a setting that matches how you’re feeling, turn it on, and get ready to feel better. Using a technique called neuromodulation, the device produces soft pulses on the underside of the wrist. That creates a mild tingling sensation that travels to your body’s central nervous system. “The signals modulate the neural pathways between the brain and the stomach, via the vagus nerve, restoring normal gastric rhythm and relieving nausea,” reads the description on Reliefband’s website.

WITHINGS ACTIVITÉ SAPPHIRE
The Withings Activité is a stunning Swiss-made watch that combines time and activity tracking. It automatically tracks your activity and sleep: steps, runs, calories, swim and sleep. The watch also automatically syncs your data using Bluetooth, allowing you to visualize your trends and receive real-time coaching on your iOS or Android device with the free Health Mate app. A truly unique and stylish tool to inspire and empower a healthy lifestyle.
