At CES 2013, there was an explosion of health tech. New technology for health and fitness ran the gamut from heart rate monitors and activity trackers, to simulated road rides on a bike trainer, to a fork that helps you to eat slower.
The first version of the BodyMedia Fit Core won our Boomer Tech Award for its ability to track calorie burn with 97% accuracy as well as tracking sleep patterns. BodyMedia showed the next generation, the BodyMedia Core 2 that will add heart rate monitoring and has a much slimmer design. They've replaced the bulky model with a design that is fitted into a soft band and offers accessories like a silver arm bracelet. Function and fashion. That's more like it.
