The health and fitness tech market is growing rapidly, from wearable tracking devices like the Fitbit to more obscure medical gadgets that could have a big impact on those living with disabilities.
Each week we’ll be bringing you a round-up of the best from Connected Health, our sister site that’s dedicated to the world of health tech, fitness gadgets and awesome apps:
Fitbit has recently launched the new Zip gadget and upgraded the Ultra to become the one and now the web dashboard has had a revamp too, allowing you to interact more with other community members.
We’ve come across a lot of different mood, food and activity trackers over recent months, but uMotif strips tracking back to basics, allowing you to rate different areas of your life with its big colourful flower dashboard.
Another mood tracking website that combines monitoring your wellbeing with playing an online card game.
The Zamzee is a health and fitness tracking device just like the Fitbit, but specially designed for little ones.
Pulse is a concept design that tracks your heart rate with a quirky little ring-style gadget and feeds the data back to a dedicated iPhone application.
Lifekraze is a new online website, community and app that encourages people to eat healthily and be more active. It stands out amongst other offerings because users can reward each other with points when they achieve good things, which they can then redeem for prizes.
