  karma level 72828

It's a fast moving world and we all want to experience so much. But no plant yields desired fruits unless given the perfect care and hence, in following, we present to you 8 very recent gadgets that can help you maintain your health, right from fat content to work-out tabs..

1. AliveCor Heart Monitor

Keep tabs on any abnormal heart rhythms with the AliveCor heart monitor. This sensor plugs into your smartphone and provides an electrocardiogram (ECG) reading of your heart. “This can be useful in patients who have arrhythmia, palpitations or just those folks that want to learn more about their physiology and heart’s electrical system,” says Brian C. Kolski, M.D., board-certified cardiologist at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California. “It’s also very easy to use.” With the accompanying app, you can also record your medications, caffeine and alcohol consumption or sleep and exercise habits so you can zero in on what might be causing any irregular heartbeats. PRICE: $74.99

2. MioFuse

Wear this device on your wrist for EKG-accurate heart-rate data without having to wear a chest strap. MioFuse also tracks your daily steps, pace, distance and calories. Just connect it to your iPhone or Android phone or sync it to your GPS watch or favorite apps like MapMyRun, Strava or Wahoo. “It’s excellent for those athletic people and patients interested in interval training,” says cardiologist Brian C. Kolski. “This wristband has an optical sensor for tracking heart rate -- the single most important variable when training or exercising.” The display on the band updates with your real-time heart rate so you know just how hard you’re working during your sweat session. PRICE: $149.00

3. ResMed S+ Sleep Sensor

Analyze and improve your sleep with personalized feedback from a device that doesn’t even have to be in contact with your skin. The S+ monitors your breathing and movement while you sleep and syncs with your smartphone or tablet. “People don’t realize how important sleep patterns and habits are to overall health and fitness,” says cardiologist Brian C. Kolski. The bedside sensor uses this nightly data and formulates feedback on environmental factors and sleep quality, and within a few nights of using it people report feeling much more rested. PRICE: $149.99

4. Withings Pulse 02 Activity Tracker

Most wearable devices on the market measure your steps, distance and calories burned, and some can even measure sleep and heart rate. The Withings Pulse O2 measures all that plus your blood oxygen level. It can be worn on your clothes, attached to a wristband or hidden in your pocket. “It’s essentially a scale that can help with environment, body composition, etc.,” says cardiologist Brian C. Kolski. Measuring your blood oxygen level can help you assess the overall efficiency of your cardiovascular system during and after a workout. PRICE: $119.95

5. Scanadu Scout

When you go to the doctor’s office, the nurse takes your vitals. So does the Scanadu Scout. Place the device on your forehead for an instant readout of your temperature, heart rate, blood oxygenation and more. It analyzes, tracks and trends your vitals -- including your systolic and diastolic blood pressure -- in 10 seconds. The device isn’t meant to replace your doctor, obviously, but you can use the results to share with your doctor and spark conversations about your health. Currently, the device is pending FDA approval, but you can sign up for email updates on their website to find out when it will be widely available.

6. iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter

Sure, the device looks a bit like what they put on your finger in the hospital, but that’s the point. This wireless device clips on your finger and provides an instant readout of your blood oxygen saturation level (SpO2) and pulse rate. SpO2 refers to the concentration of oxygen in the blood. Normal levels are between 95 and 100 percent. Ninety to 95 percent is low but not usually seen as a health issue, but concentrations below 90 percent may indicate hypoxemia, sleep apnea, asthma or other problems requiring a visit to the doctor. PRICE: $69.95

7. Omron 10 Series Blood Pressure Monitor

Tracking your blood pressure at home comes in handy if your BP tends to run high in your doctor’s office. Known as “white-coat hypertension,” anxiety when at the doctor’s office can give a temporary, false higher reading and a misdiagnosis of hypertension. Charting your readings throughout the day can help your doctor figure out if the in-office reading is correct. Omron’s 10 Series upper-arm blood pressure monitor has been clinically proven accurate and can store up to 200 readings. Plus, the large screen is easy to read and provides indicator lights to let you know if your reading is within the normal range. PRICE: $79.99

8. Tinke

Available for Android/Bluetooth or iPhone, Tinke measures your fitness and stress via heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation and heart rate variability. Rest your thumb on the sensor to receive a reading within 30 to 60 seconds. Once you connect it to the app, you’ll also get two compilation scores. Your Vita index takes into account your heart rate, blood oxygen level and respiratory rate and calibrates it based on your gender and age. Your Zen Index gives you an idea of how stressed you are and shows you how to focus on your breathing patterns to reduce your stress levels. PRICE: $129.00.
