With January now behind us, keeping motivated with new year resolutions can be a challenge.

To help keep you on track, we take a look at some of the innovative and interesting tech items that are proving popular with those looking to track and improve their health and wellbeing.

Oura Ring
Don’t underestimate this discreet ring that looks like a simple wedding band. From sleep and activity through to monitoring your heart rate and overnight blood oxygen level, this ring can track all aspects of your health from your finger. You can easily share data with your doctor, trainer or friends and family and because it’s more of a passive piece of tech, it doesn’t give you constant alerts and updates.

Garmin HRM-Fit
Fitness tech designers have finally realised there is a difference between male and female bodies and responding to this is Garmin, who has introduced a heart rate monitor that is specifically for women. The HRM-Fit offers all the benefits of the traditional Garmin – versatility, connectivity and good data storage – but it’s been created to easily and comfortably attach to female sports bras.

Carv Ski Boot Sensor
This is a must for ski lovers – the Carv ski boot sensor is an insert that fits under the liner of your ski boot and measures your motion and pressure 20 times a second, then sends the data to your phone via Bluetooth. The app will give you a performance summary of your technique with guidance on how to improve. It was recently tested out by Lifeline IT’s Adam and he can’t recommend it highly enough!

Zoe
You may have seen these mysterious yellow discs appearing on people’s arms and wondered what they are. Put simply, they’re part of the Zoe nutrition app. Users wear the circular yellow blood sugar monitor to track their daily intake and they then receive personalised advice via an app on what they should eat, based on the results of gut health and blood fat tests and blood sugar monitoring.

Aaptiv
If you don’t want to be glued to a screen when exercising, Aaptiv could be the app for you. It specialises in audio-based workouts led by trainers, meaning you don’t have to keep your eyes or fingers on a screen to exercise. A trainer tells you what to do with music in the background and you can choose from the music styles offered or connect to your Spotify account. The app suggests workouts that will suit you based on the information you provide and what styles of music you prefer.

Yoga with Adriene / Find What Feels Good
An old but good one, Yoga with Adriene is probably one of the most used free yoga tutorials on YouTube. The same Adriene (Mishler) also sells a reasonably priced subscription to all her yoga videos and other content under the brand ‘Find What Feels Good’ or FWFG. The FWFG library has exclusive videos, premium courses, vlogs from Adriene, as well as all the Yoga with Adriene videos ad free.

And the future for health tech…
You may have seen Elon Musk’s latest health endeavour with his company Neuralink, which has just carried out a brain implant on its first human patient. Neuralink hopes its technology will allow paralysed patients to control external computers using neural signals, which could prove life-changing for sufferers of conditions such as motor neurone disease.

Although very early days, it will be interesting to see how this health technology advances. After all, it was this kind of revolutionary science that led to breakthrough discoveries in medicine such as penicillin, vaccines and organ transplants.
