The smart scale
This high-tech smart scale is designed to track weight, BMI and body composition by measuring muscle, fat, water and bone. It then relays this information straight to your phone where you can monitor your progress on an app.
It recognises up to five different people so can be used by the whole family. One clever feature – designed to stop users from becoming obsessed with the number on the scale – is that the display will show you a smiling, neutral or unhappy face rather than your exact weight every time you step on.

Space-age super bike
This internetconnected smart bike not only gives the smoothest of rides but is packed with high-tech extras that will boost your fitness.
The key feature is automatic resistance. Rather than having to adjust it manually throughout the ride, the bike does it automatically based on your fitness level and the type of workout.
You can access an extensive range of workouts online, from studio-based classes to famous cycling routes around the world, which you follow on a tablet or computer screen while you cycle.
You can even take a spin in a virtual velodrome if you fancy it.
The Modius headset sounds too good to be true. You wear it for an hour a day while having a relaxing lie down and, hey presto, you lose weight.
Designed by neuroscientists, the device works by zapping the vestibular nerve in the brain.
Stimulating this area of the brain, research suggests, can boost the metabolism and suppress appetite while encouraging the body to burn more fat.
Clinical trials are under way with results expected in 2019. Some people have reported feeling queasy while using the device but it comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee if you are not happy.
