5 Best Weight Loss Gadgets for 2018

Making resolutions is a common pursuit at this time of year.We want to look good in those swimsuits when summer rolls around.

As we think of the brand-new year ahead, 33% of people resolve to lose weight.

It’s not only about physical appearance, though. Many people need to lose weight for health reasons. In the US, 38.2% of people aged 15 or over are obese.

Weight loss requires significant lifestyle changes. It’s hard work, and many people fail before the end of January. Can you turn to the world of technology to achieve your goals in 2018?

With these five gadgets, yes, you can!

1) Garmin Vivosmart 3

We’ve talked before about the plethora of IoT wearables to help you improve your health. So we couldn’t compile this list and not include a wearable fitness tracker.

The Garmin Vivosmart 3 goes a little further than standard trackers. Yes, it measures how many steps you’ve taken and how far you’ve walked. But it also counts your reps if you’re in the gym and measures your VO2 max to gauge your aerobic fitness levels.

It also tracks calories. If you subscribe to the “calorie in/calorie out” diet method, the Garmin will be your new best friend. But its other features will ensure you don’t just lose weight, you’ll get fit too.

And try out the stress tracker to improve your well-being in 2018.

2) SITU Food Scale

An area that many dieters go wrong is in food preparation. All your hard work in the gym goes to waste if your portions are too big, or contain the wrong ingredients.

The super simple SITU Food Scale connects to your device using Bluetooth. Add your daily calorie limit and see at a glance what the nutritional breakdown of your food is.

It’ll make your lifestyle changes much easier by taking a lot of the maths and science out of dieting.

3) ShapeScale Bathroom Scale

Gone are the days when scales told you how much you weigh. The ShapeScale sends a 3D scan of your body to your smartphone. Heat maps show you where you’ve lost (or gained) fat, or where you’ve built muscle.

If you’re exercising for weight loss, then you must know your fat and muscle levels since muscle weighs more. You’ll be able to tell if your workouts are effective if the fat levels go down and the muscle levels go up. Or pinpoint those areas that need extra help.

The ShapeScale ships in early 2018.

4) Forza Smart Bar


Don’t have time to go to the gym? No problem. Install this smart fitness bar from Forza at home instead.

With quick assembly, you can mount the fitness bar to your existing door frame. It tracks your reps and heart rate, along with the calories you’ve burned, which helps with weight loss.

Its companion app also gives you a series of workouts depending on the results you want. Or compete with friends to push each other further.

You’ll love being able to exercise in the comfort of your own home. Why not pair Netflix with your SURE Universal remote while you rack up your reps?

5) Click & Grow Smart Garden 3

People often complain that dieting is no fun. Food tastes less interesting, and the uninspiring meals send you diving for the ice cream.

Growing your own herbs is a great way to bring flavor (and nutrients) to your food. Or grow cherry tomatoes, peppers, and strawberries for extra fresh fruit and veg.

All you need to do is add plant cartridges to the Click & Grow Smart Garden 3 and refill its water reservoir. The smart soil keeps track of nutrients, oxygen, and water to ensure the plants get the right amounts of each.

Use their subscription service to get refills, so you always have something growing.

A Final Note

Buying a smart scale or wearing a fitness tracker won’t lead to weight loss on its own. Use technology alongside a healthy eating plan and exercise for the best results.

Over to you – did you make a resolution to lose weight in 2018?
