Hot Tech Wearables That Aren’t Smartwatches (Part 2)

Hot Tech Wearables That Aren’t Smartwatches (Part 2)

Today, with everything going on, it can be difficult to make sure we’re treating our bodies well. Sure, we try to eat healthily, workout at least 30 minutes a day, and get the requisite sleep, but how well are we really doing? Thanks to the three tech wearables that follow, we can get the answers we need to stay healthy.

1.    AIO Smart Sleeve

Komodo Technologies' smart compression sleeve is a game changer for everyone, from marathon runners to stressed-out moms and dads.  It uses electrocardiogram (ECG) technology to measure body activity related to heart rate.  Along with measuring one’s heart rate, it also monitors sleeping habits, body temperature, workout intensity, stress, reactions to food, oxygenation levels, and UV rays. Furthermore, it detects coronary heart disease and heart inflammation.

With so many of us working out and eating right (at least some of the time), we can forget that despite our healthy lifestyles, normally undetected heart issues can creep up on us. With this device, there’s no need to worry because it accurately tells you what’s going on. Too stressed out but didn’t know it? Your health score viewed on their app (made for iOS and Android phones) will let you know. Need to know if you’re fully recovered from that intense workout yesterday? Here you go.

It currently comes in the following colors and two sizes, as applicable: Charcoal Black, Metallic Grey, Pink, and Snow White, and sizes S/M and L/XL.

While the price tag is $144.95, the AIO smart sleeve is well worth it as your health and ability to stay on top of it are priceless.

2. Siren Socks

Diabetes is one of those medical conditions that strikes the young as well as the elderly and is no joke. That’s why Siren socks are really amazing. A diabetic person often experiences numbness in the legs and hence isn’t always aware of nerve damage in the feet. These socks help detect foot injuries in a diabetic person to help prevent further issues. The socks have micro sensors that are woven into the fabric so that they continuously monitor body temperature. If there is a rise in temperature, it’s possible that inflammation, which could lead to an ulcer, has occurred. In such situations, the socks’ sensors will send a signal to notify the user via the Siren mobile app for iOS and Android. Siren can also send alerts to your home phone or e-mail.

Siren socks, available for men and women, cost $19.95 per month and come in packs of 5 pairs as new socks are shipped to users every 6 months. Who knew that socks could save lives? Amazing!

3. Under Armour’s Athlete Recovery Sleepwear & Bedding

Wait. What? You read that right: smart sleepwear or bedding that helps you better recover from an intense day. What’s more, you don’t have to be an athlete to use it (though isn’t taking the stairs at work all day long just like an intense stadium-stair or Stairmaster workout?).

These PJs and bedding are designed for comfort and softness, but here’s the kicker (did I mention Tom Brady -ok “kicker” doesn’t really work here- had a hand in creating these?), the bioceramic pattern on the inside of them absorbs your body’s heat and reflects back Far Infrared (a type of energy on the infrared spectrum that helps muscles recover) to your skin, helping you sleep better and recover faster.

Just in case you’re wondering, these PJs and bedding do not reflect heat back, so you’ll keep cool.

Men’s tops and bottoms range from $37.99 (for the regular version) to $127.50 (for the Ultra Comfort version), women’s tops and bottoms range from $29.99 to $112.99, and the bedding ranges from $75.99 (for their pillowcases) to $262.99 (for their largest sheet set, for a California King). The sleepwear currently comes in white, black, navy, gray, blue, and pink. Happy sleeping!
