What’s great about the new world of health and wellness devices isn’t Bluetooth compatibility or wireless charging—it’s that there’s a collection of tools that help us understand ourselves a little better, stretch a little deeper, and grow a little stronger with every move we’re already making. Take something like a fitness wearable, which might track the way your daily movement changes over time and give you the biofeedback to make the changes you want to, or a powerful percussive massager, which is a fast and surefire way to combat tight, tense muscles. Or an infrared sauna that melts tension when you’re using it and folds up when you’re not. It’s all part of maintaining a healthy body and mind for years to come.
Now, it’s not all high-tech devices. Take note, too, of the lo-fi tools that do a lot with a little. (Not everything has to be Bluetooth-enabled to be effective.) A pair of ankle weights might make your regular walk around the block a full-on cardio workout, and a meditation pillow set might anchor the breathwork practice you’re finding peace in these days. Plus: acupressure tools you can use anywhere and the prettiest hand weights and kettlebells you’ve ever seen.
We carry only the wellness devices we’ve tried and loved, so take their presence here as our endorsement: That yoga strap, those resistance bands, that full-size infrared mat you’re adding to cart? We did, too.
