Nobody deserves to have to deal with dangling wires while being in the zone during a workout. This is why these earphones are designed to be wire-free and contain a locking feature that securely fastens the device to the user’s ears. So what’s new? There are so many sports headsets out there, but none like this. Aside from effectively adding tune to your toning, tapping the sensor on the right earbud lets you listen to your hart rate update. This is perfect for endurance training!

What started out as a Kickstarter project, turned into an active sports hit. Like any tracking device, you can mount it on your bike, surfboard, or whatever it is you’re using at the moment. Connect it to an app on your smartphone and access your sports stats in a snap. It gets even better because you can even playback your highlights of the day with the video recording function.

What fitness goal would be complete without good eating habits? Every time you eat too fast, the HAPIfork vibrates, sending you a reminder to pace yourself. It also takes note of how much “fork servings” you’re taking in per minute, the amount of time between each serving, and how long it took for you to finish your meal.
