The impact that a wearable device can have on your health is hard to overestimate. In fact, England's National Health Service is so enthusiastic, they've even set up a page that rates and recommends fitness trackers and apps, like My Fitness Pal, which I personally know and love...probs to the point of obsession. Such. A. Good. App. (And free, too.)
The thing about wearable tech, though, is that it needs to look cool. That's just the way we humans tend to roll. And while I'm a sucker for most anything Apple, their watch seems too watch'y somehow. (Of course, I say that now but just *watch* how quickly I end up buying one when that bigass advance for my new book I've been dreaming about comes rolling in.) However, this bracelet from Misfit in collaboration with Swarovski - available in April 2015 - is quite divine. Or maybe the right word is celestial, what with this much bling involved. The pretty crystal-festooned bracelet helps disguise the fact that the striking, faceted crystal is actually tracking your movements and sleep - and telling your smartphone all about it.
Which is awesome...given that good health is the New Black.
