20 innovative smart devices to help you get towards better health and fitness

There’s a wide variety of factors involved in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, this makes it quite hard to identify whether or not you’re on the right track. Sure, wearable fitness gadgets can really help in some form but they don’t necessarily provide a comprehensive overview of your health.


Thankfully, these days there are plenty of smart devices available for you to use in the comfort of your own home. They allow you to check your blood pressure and even monitor the buildup of muscle mass among other things. Today I’d like to showcase 20 innovative smart devices to help you get towards better health and fitness.

Vessyl Cup

Vessyl is not just a mug, it’s a smart revolutionary device that analyzes the liquids you put in it to tell you what you’re drinking. Moreover, it can even tell you the dietary content, such as sugar, protein, calories, fat, caffeine – even identifying the beverage by name. You can then take all of the results and synchronize them to your smartphone.



Cue brings the power of a medical laboratory into your home. It allows its user to identify the level of testosterone, inflammation, Vitamin D, and fertility with small amounts of blood, saliva, or nasal swabs. It can also connect to your mobile device.



Tao is an isometric exercise device that tracks your fitness progress. It can help you to find time for a workout, even when you’re far from home or a gym. Besides the exercises, it can also keep track of your other activities, including meals that you have eaten.


The Cactus

Although currently just a concept, this is a device made specially for diabetics. It measures the level of glucose in one’s blood and then injects the necessary amount of insulin.


iBGStar Blood Glucose Meter

Checking your blood glucose level with this device could not be simpler. With the iBGStar connected to your iPhone or iPod Touch, insert a test strip. You then use the lancing device to obtain a blood drop. Afterwards, touch the end of the test strip to your blood drop. From there, the results of the test will be displayed on the smartphone screen.
