For the older generation, this can be a very vital component of this wristband. It will also monitor your workout routine, the number of steps you walk in a day, how many calories you’ve burned, and then give you a full review of your progress. It has caller I.D. as well, so if you are driving or busy doing something else, you don’t have to find your phone to see who is calling. Just simply look down at your wrist, and your FitBit will let you know.

It uses bone conduction audio technology to transmit the sound waves, and it sounds even better when you are under water. It’ll cost you about $160.

Eating with haste can be bad for your body in several ways. Weight gain, digestive problems, and gastric reflux are just a few of the side effects that are possible when you eat your food too quickly. When you eat slower, your body has more time to begin digesting and you will feel full without eating as much as you can in a short amount of time.
Also, when you eat your food slower, you are able to masticate it more thoroughly and therefore digestion is a bit easier on your body. The HAPI Fork tracks your bites per minute, how long it takes to eat your meal, and if you begin eating too quickly, it buzzes to prompt you to slow down.
