At the beginning of each year, most people make new resolutions. For many of them, New Year resolutions involve cutting down on carbs and increasing physical activity to improve health and fitness levels. If you have the same resolution for the year 2019, then here are the best health and fitness gadgets that can aid your cause.
Inevitably, most people’s New Year resolutions involve shedding a few pounds off their body and increasing their levels of fitness. Let’s be honest: we all want to look good in the mirror. Now it’s summer and we need to do something to work on our beach bods. However, while some of us make the effort to achieve it, others sit around waiting for some miracle to happen. Sorry to break it to you but no miracle is going to take place and get you your desired results. You’ll have to work for making them happen.
In real life, we have no fairy godmothers with enchanted wands to make us look good. Instead, we need to do it all by ourselves. If you want a fit body and good looks that impresses people, then you will have to make the effort for it. No more lazing around. No more making excuses for not hitting the exercise room or gym mat. If you really want a healthy and fit body that people would admire from afar, then you need to work for it.
Also, do not look for shortcuts as there is no magic pill or injection that can make you fit and healthy in an instance. Instead, go for a jog, lift weights at home or your gym, do high intensity interval training (HIIT), do light cardio, go bicycling, and so on. Basically, you need to find a regimen that works for you and stick to it. If you’re looking for some assistance in achieving your health and fitness goals, you can get it through these amazing health and fitness gadgets.
1. Fitbit Aria 2 Smart Scale
You probably already know about the fitness trackers from Fitbit. But, have you heard about the company’s amazing bathroom scale? As the name suggests, Fitbit Aria 2 is a smart scale—or a connected scale—that provides anyone who is looking to track weight loss over time and get in shape with a pleather of functionality. Although it is sold as a scale, the Aria 2 can monitor your body’s fat percentage and calculate your body mass index (BMI). Not only that, it can also store data for up to eight people. The best thing about this is that the information about each person is kept separate and private from the others.
The data stored within the scale can be wirelessly synched with a smart phone. This makes it possible to monitor trends and produce graphs and charts that provide a good picture of your weight loss and overall health.
2. OZMO Active Smart Cup Hydration Tracker
Do you know what is the most important but overlooked aspect of exercising? It is keeping yourself hydrated. The good news is that the Ozmo’s Active Smart Cup solves this problem with its smart technology. A leak proof smart water bottle that is free of bisphenol A (BPA), Ozmo’s Active Smart Cupcomes with a vibration alert system and interactive app. You can use the bottle to track hydration levels and can sync it with Fitbit or other healthcare trackers for increased personalization.
3. Tangram Factory Smart Rope PURE Jump Rope
We jump over a skipping rope relentlessly and repeatedly with the hope that we have burned the desired number of calories. However, we are never sure about the number of calories burned in a rope skipping session. Tangram Factory Smart Rope PURE Jump Rope aims to change that. Resembling a typical skipping rope, the Tangram Factory Smart Rope has magnetic sensors that can provide an accurate count of your jumps.
Additionally, it can detail your workout times and the number of calories burned when it is paired with your iPad, iPhone, or Apple Watch. And that is not all! The smart rope also provides recommendations for interval training and allows you to compete with friends in a fitness challenge.

A small disc that can paired with your smart phone, the iFit Sleep HR can be placed between your bed’s mattress and boxspring. Data related to sleep such as your respiratory rate, heart rate, and sleep patterns are transferred to your phone by iFit Sleep for you to review. The sleep tracker can inform you about the amount of sleep your got during the night, the number of times you woke up, and how relaxed you were in general. The device also comes with a smart alarm system called ‘FreshWake’. The purpose of this system is to wake you up at an optimal time of your sleep cycle.
