The Best Health and Beauty Gadgets from the 2014 International CES

Posted -

In this decade of gel manicures and automatic curling machines, beauty and technology have combined beautifully to bring us only the best in efficient, multi-tasking products.

In particular, the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Association show introduced a wide range of new gadgets, with a few gems that are perfect for beauty divas. If you missed the details of the show, check out our top picks in health and beauty electronics.

1.) Kolibree Toothbrush

This toothbrush helps to make sure that you’re getting the most out of daily oral hygiene routine. The toothbrush syncs together with an app via Bluetooth to track details about your brushing habits, such as how long you brush for and how well you clean certain hard-to-reach areas. If friends or family get this toothbrush too, you can compare your habits to each other to see how well each of you is brushing. This may not be a product for everyone, but it’s the coolest thing in brushing since Tooth Tunes!

2.) Tao WellShell for Fitness

If your Fitness board on Pinterest isn’t enough motivation to keep you moving, this new gadget can help. The shell is a small apparatus that links to an app which provides 50 isometric workouts, or exercises based on pressure. Simply squeeze the device according to the various programs, and the intensity and duration will adjust accordingly.

3.) Medissimo Smart Pill Box

Do you have a hard time remembering to take your birth control pill daily or other necessary medications? This year’s show featured a communicating pill box from Medissimo that helps to solve that problem. This smart box has sensors that enable users to accurately take medicine on a regular basis, and to share the data remotely on health networks.

4.) Withings Aura Sleep System

Is your dorm or apartment building constantly buzzing with noise at night from loud hall mates or late night parties? Is the temperature in your room unpredictable, keeping you from your beauty sleep? Get back to a more restful night with the sleep system technology from Withings. The system includes a thin pad that fits under your mattress to monitor your movement and breathing, as well as noise levels, room temperature, and light. Once the device has all of the data, it produces different sounds and appropriate lights that help you to sleep soundly and still wake you up in the morning.

5.) Netatmo Jewelry for Sun Safety

It’s important to apply SPF on the regular to keep your skin safe from the harmful rays of the sun, but do you know just how well protected you actually are? A bracelet called JUNE from Netatmo monitors your sun exposure, then connects with a corresponding app that gives you practical suggestions, such as how much sunscreen to apply and when to reapply. It’s also super chic, so you’ll have no shame wearing it every day.
