Why should you have to wear your activity tracker on your wrist? The Misfit Shine ($80) is a quarter-sized sensor that hooks up to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device via magic. Or actually, some sort of new sync paradigm where all you need to do is set it on your device. It's also crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum and sports a built-in clip, which makes you wonder if it isn't a secret Apple skunkworks project gone rogue.
Everything else in your house seems to connect to your smartphone, so why not your scale? The Withings WS-30 Wireless Scale ($130) sports built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to let you keep track of your weight and BMI via the company's own app or one of the 60 other apps that support it. After each weigh-in, it automatically uploads and syncs your weight data, but that's not its only trick — it also automatically calibrates itself while you're away, helps keep you in the same position for accurate measurements, and gets to know your weight, so it knows if it's you on the scale or your roommate/spouse/overly curious dog.
Everyone knows that climbing is a great workout — but installing a climbing wall in your house isn't exactly a viable idea. Enter the Treadwall ($TBA). This innovative machine offers a 4 foot-wide climbing area and acts just like a treadmill, only for climbing instead of running. If a vertical climb sounds too dull for you, pony up for the Pro model and tackle inclines/declines of +5 to -20 degrees — or as we like to call it, Spidey-training.
