Earlier this month, we wrote about some of the most innovative digital health gadgets to come out of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (breathing device that assistss with weight loss, anyone?). And that’s just a small portion of the list from the 500 vendors that showcased some of the world’s biggest and most impressive tech devices that will be hitting the shelves in 2019. From kettlebells that count your reps as you go to at-home laser skincare treatments, here’s what else you should be keeping an eye out in the world of health, fitness and beauty:
Matrix PowerWatch 2: The watch that never dies
Looking for a new addition to your smartwatch lineup? This Matrix PowerWatch 2 is a serious contender. The watch features on-board GPS, heart rate monitoring, among other features, all on a full-color LCD display. But its best feature? You never have to charge it. The PowerWatch is powered using thermoelectric and solar technology and uses your body heat and light to power and charge on an ongoing basis. No charger cables included, or needed.
JAXJOX: The smart kettlebell that counts your reps
No chance of cheating on your kettlebell reps with this smart new workout gear. The JAXJOX KettlebellConnect has motion sensor technology that tracks your reps and sets all throughout your workout.

Opté Precision Skincare System: Flawless skin, from home
Merging skincare, camera optics, and highly powerful technology, the Opté Precision Skincare System is a wand that uses blue LED scan lights, an integrated digital camera, a precise algorithm, and even a jet printer to scan your skin, detect age spots, and customize the serum you need on the spot.
AirThings Wave Mini: The smart way to monitor your air quality
Keep your home clean, and monitor the air quality and pollutants that might be threatening it with the AirThings Wave Mini — a tiny, $ 79 monitoring device that can measure TVOCs (total volatile organic compounds, or gases that can have serious effects on the health of your household), temperature, humidity, air quality, and is all tracked and monitored via the included app.

Virtual reality and fitness meet in this new VR bike from NordicTrack . Just put on the wireless headset and travel to different worlds on your ride, increasing your difficulty as you increase your intensity.
