Tinke Wellness Monitor

Attempting to stay fit — especially over the holidays — can be a tough task. The Tinke Wellness Monitor ($120) can help. This diminutive device connects to the bottom of your iPhone* and has you place your thumb on its sensing platform, where it detects changes in skin blood volume to give you a real-time look at heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, and blood oxygen saturation. Thanks to the free app, it also tracks these measurements over time to give you a larger picture of changes in your fitness score and stress levels. *Sorry iPhone 5 users, looks like you'll be ponying up for an adapter.

  • Belkin WeMo Baby

    Anyone who's ever "enjoyed" listening to an entire night's worth of radio buzz from a traditional baby monitor can appreciate the Belkin WeMo Baby ($90). This new system connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, letting you check in on the little one using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. While the free app offers clear digital sound and easy-to-see graphics, you can upgrade to Evoz service for an extra fee and access advanced monitoring, cry notifications, history, and analysis of your baby's sleep patterns.

  • Duo Pinball iPad Controller

    We've played some pretty good pinball games on the iPad — but somehow, we still missed the visceral experience of button-mashing that comes from playing a real game. The Duo Pinball iPad Controller ($60) bridges this gap by holding your iPad at a reclined angle and adding a spring-loaded plunger, two side buttons, and realistic bump and tilt mechanics to your iPad via Bluetooth, getting you far closer to the feel of a real machine. It's also compatible with the iPhone and certain versions of the iPod touch, but somehow we guess a smaller screen just won't do it justice.
