There are literally thousands of health gadgets out there, some for conditions as serious as heart conditions and diabetes.

While a shot of mace is still an instant deterrent, advances in tech have made it easy, and sometimes stylish, to always feel safe. The clunky life alert bracelet of the nineties has turned into products like safety rings, which have built-in GPS, can alert preset contacts, and record audio. With recent terror events around the world, this type of tech will likely become even more popular. Whether it’s a natural disaster or man-made situation, you’ll be able to alert your loved ones fast.
New Phone Tech
The smartphone is the granddaddy of tech and you might think there are no more evolutions to this device. But, Lenovo has just released a game changer, the Phab 2 Pro. It’s the first to use Google’s spatially aware Tango technology and it’s very cool. This phone-on-steroids features Dolby Atmos sound, a huge 6.4-inch quad HD screen, a high-end processor, and four cameras. The cool part is that Tango makes the phone situationally aware and able to track movement and perceive depth. You might want to jump on this one!
Pets are not to be forgotten in the tech revolution. If you’re worried that Fido is bored while you are gone all day, you may want to spring for the GoBone interactive dog toy. You can fill it with treats and control it remotely from an app on your smartphone. Hook up a web cam and you can keep an eye on your friend as he plays.
Gadgets On the Road
If you’re a motorcyclists or bicyclist on the road, the Garmin Varia Vision is the best tech out there for keeping you safe. Rather than mounting on the handlebars, this device attaches to your sunglasses or visor. Though bicyclists will love the tracking info, the safety info is one of its best features. No need to look down for data as information is in your line of sight. Get directions, notifications, and with an add-on, rearview radar to know when cars are coming up from behind. This one could save lives.
It’s tough to keep up with the rapid evolution in the tech world, as newer, smarter, smaller and more powerful devices and gadgets fill our everyday lives. Hang on, there’s much more to come!
