Health and Beauty Gadgets

It can be easy to tell yourself little white lies about how much you weigh, how active you are, or why you never seem to get enough sleep. But with new advancements in health and beauty technology, the truth about our behavior -- and its effect on us -- is presented in black and white.

Whole Living senior editor Terri Trespicio and her team of curious staffers tested the latest and greatest in high-tech health gadgets and selected five that provide insightful, customized information about your stress level, sleep patterns, body fat percentage, and more.

Terri's Top 5 Health and Beauty Gadgets
1. Fitbit
Say goodbye to bulky pedometers: This sleek little device fits in your pocket and tracks your every move -- steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned -- to provide a comprehensive measurement of just how active you are. How? The Fitbit contains a 3D motion sensor that captures your movement, logs its intensity and duration, and calculates a daily score rating your level of activity.

2. StressEraser
If you feel stressed and scattered, have trouble focusing, or need some help learning how to relax, the pocket-sized StressEraser is for you. The portable biofeedback system reads your pulse and guides you through a breathing exercise that triggers the parasympathetic nervous system to help you recover from stress and quiet your mind. Each long, smooth breath earns you one point; the goal is 30 conscious breaths per session, 100 per day.

3. Zeo Personal Sleep Coach
Spy on your sleeping self with the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach. This innovative machine measures your sleep patterns via a headband that picks up electrical signals from your brain, transmits them wirelessly to a special clock, and records important stats, including how long it took you to fall asleep, how many times you woke up during the night, and how much time you spend in light sleep, deep sleep, and REM sleep.

4. Omron Composition Monitor
Being healthy isn't just about weight; a range of other factors, such as body fat percentage, visceral fat level, and body mass index or BMI help to determine your overall health. The Omron scale measures all of them, using an advanced system of reading electrodes at the hands and feet to distinguish between water and fat in the body.

5. Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System
Cleansing is probably the single most important thing you can do to improve the look and feel of your skin. Up the skincare ante with the Clarisonic cleansing system, which uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to smooth and even out skin texture and tone. Removing six times more makeup and two times more dirt and oil than manual cleansing, the exfoliating brush is gentle enough for daily use.
