Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who’s the healthiest of them all? You can be, thanks to the growing amount of products making up the health and wellness tech field. Rather than count and track steps, distance and calories burned like many of the fitness trackers and wearables available today, health and wellness tech products work to show users progress on their bodies and fitness in order for them to get a clear picture of their overall wellness. Most recently, San Francisco startup Naked Labs has jumped into the game unveiling their 3D body-scanning mirror. This Internet connected, full-length smart mirror helps people get a scientific, accurate sense of their health and fitness progress.
Created as an attempt to combat how our eyes can fool us when it comes to our health and wellness, even leading to a sense of body dysmorphia, this smart mirror shows people their real health progress. The mirror will scan a user’s entire body (calculating circumference and symmetry of areas like the waist, biceps and thighs, weight, hip to waist ratio and body fat percentage) and upload the scans as gray scale 3D images into the Naked mobile app. This exact, realistic illustration of one’s body is accompanied with data that highlights progress and areas that have improved or declined. The app allows them to then set fitness and wellness goals and will alert users when those goals are within a healthy range as deemed by health and fitness experts.
Naked’s smart mirror isn’t the only wellness tech device that can help people stay healthy and fit. Lumoid has a number of wellness wearables, devices and gadgets in line with this smart mirror with the simple goal of tracking, analyzing and improving numerous areas of your life, beyond just fitness. Each device is available to rent for a trial basis, so what’re you waiting for? Become a better, healthier you today!
Reach your weight goals and get to where you want to be fitness wise with the Fitbit Aria Smart Scale. This device tracks your weight, body fat percentage and BMI, painting a picture of your long-term progress. It even wirelessly syncs your stats with online graph and mobile tools that help you stay motivated and on track.
Posture and poise are key elements of wellness, and can have drastic health consequences if they’re poor. Especially in today’s society, where many people sit in front of computers and screens for hours upon hours each day, good posture is crucial to one’s wellness. Lumo Lift is the only activity tracker in the world that coaches you to better overall posture by tracking posture, steps, distance & calories.
Skulpt Aim is the world’s first device to measure body fat percentage and muscle quality. Track your progress over time, and reach your goals faster with the built-in BMI calculator and fitness feedback feature.
