The Coolest Health and Fitness Gadgets at CES 2013
Every year, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the place for brands to introduce their newest health, fitness, and lifestyle devices. To hone in on what's hot—and avoid the flops—we’re roaming the massive trade floor in Vegas and snapping shots of the most promising products as we go. Watch this space as we continue to update it with even more game-changing gadgets.
The Consumer Electronics Show is the place to debut the hottest new health, fitness, and lifestyle gadgets every year. This week, we have a reporter on the floor in Las Vegas scoping out what game-changing items are on the horizon.
Last summer, fitness wristbands (ie the Nike Fuelband and Jawbone Up) hit the market and promised to change the way that we track our activity. Because they're taking off in a big way, we figured we'd see at least one or two newbies—if not a dozen—promoting bands that offer even greater benefit to your overall health.
The first promising device we spotted was the Lark Life wristband ($150, lark.com), a 24/7 activity tracker monitors your movement, sleep hours, nutrition information, and mood by prompting you with questions throughout the day. In response, a coaching tool spits out tips. Did you spend all day cranking through a home improvement project? The device will probably tell you to take a hot shower and hit the sack early.
