If your diet is already starting “next Monday,” you might have kicked your New Year’s resolutions to the curb. We’re here to tell you that a “new you” is still possible and there’s more than enough time to make 2023 your healthiest year yet. In fact, health-related topics are the most common resolutions among all genders with exercising more, eating healthier, and losing weight among the top three New Year’s resolutions overall. Unfortunately, over 60 percent of those who make resolutions quit them in the first month of the new year, but that doesn’t have to happen.
The digital age is here to save the day and propel those goals across the finish line, and our Lede TV team has a few top tech gadget suggestions to help drive momentum into 2023 and beyond.
When it comes to tracking fitness activities across the board, you can’t beat the Apple Watch SE. It’s lightweight, easy to use and is much more affordable than other Apple smartwatch models. Additionally, it tracks all-day activity, finally offers sleep tracking, and features a built-in GPS for outdoor workouts and dozens of trackable exercises. Also, it automatically recognizes the beginning of a workout and prompts you to start tracking your efforts. The Apple Watch certainly excels over basic fitness trackers, because it’s much more than a workout buddy. From texting to music playback control, the options to support overall wellness and enjoyment are endless.
Wishing you could have a personal trainer accompany every workout without the price tag? Say hello to iFit Interactive Personal Training. From thousands of breathtaking workout locations all over the world right from the comfort of your screen, you can run along the beaches of Tahiti, bike the biggest national parks or even take a leisurely walk through a Scottish castle. The iFit trainers take complete control of your machine through every workout, so you never have to worry about keeping up the pace, and with the ability to choose new locations and trainers for every session, getting the same workout everyday has become so last year.
The only thing easier than making a New Year’s resolution is, well…breaking it. To avoid reaching that first month burnout, keep careful track of the new habits you’re trying to build. While journals are one of the most popular choices for monitoring progress, a habit-tracking app is a tech savvy option. In addition to staying with you wherever you go – forget trying to remember your physical journal – user-friendly iOS apps, such as Done and Strides encourage you to log new healthy habits while creatively rewarding efforts with fun celebrations. Set reminders to log events, review in-depth charts and stats and much more all within your device.
Resolutions to eat healthier typically require more time, effort and planning. But with cutting-edge tools like the Instant Pot Duo, your knight in shining armor (of stainless steel) is finally here to save the day. This fast and convenient cooker can make the process of preparing meals at home as effortless as simply throwing a bunch of ingredients into a pot, setting it and forgetting it until it’s time to eat. While Instant Pot has so many options of cookers available, the Instant Pot Duo is perfect for first timers because it’s both affordable and combines seven different cooking methods into one, including rice cooking, slow cooking, steaming, stewing and more. Now you can enjoy a little less anxiety and a lot more excitement when it comes to preparing those healthy meals at home.
It’s easy for workout and fitness motivation to tumble if an injury stands in the way. That’s why it’s imperative to prevent injury from happening in the first place with a massage product like the Theragun G3. This is Therabody’s best release yet, offering more depth, speed and force than previous models. In fact, the latest Theragun is scientifically designed to reach 60% deeper into muscles than the average massager for even more therapeutic benefit. With countless studies illustrating the importance of muscle recovery after strenuous activity, using products like the Theragun G3 regularly will help minimize soreness and maximize performance so you can reach goal after goal on your wellness journey.
No amount of dieting, workouts or meditation can bring about the best results without the recommended six to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep at night. With that, various studies reveal that cooler temperatures are critical for faster muscle recovery and repair during those peaceful night hours, which is why we’re loving the Chilisleep temperature-controlled mattress pad. Widely used by athletes as a part of their muscle recovery and repair, this tech-forward product allows you to heat or cool your bed with any temperature ranging from 55 to 115 degrees. This product helps users double the quality of restorative sleep needed to improve stress management, sharpen mental focus and repair the overall wellness of mind and body. Now that’s a cool product we can’t wait to try!
Taking a deep breath just got more satisfying with LG’s PuriCare Mini Air Purifier. Sometimes, you just need cleaner air, whether that’s when your coworker brings hard boiled eggs into the office, when your room gets a bit stuffy or when you just want to relax with some fresh air anytime, anywhere. With twin tornado dual fans, lightweight and discreet design and a battery that lasts up to eight hours, this purifier works to freshen your days. We are taking sighs of relief over here just writing about it.
They once told you that hacking your metabolism couldn’t be done, but that was before technology came to town. Introducing Lumen, the world’s first portable device that accurately measures your metabolism on the go. This real-time tracker comes with an iOS app for easy monitoring and seamlessly enhances your fat burn, weight loss and energy boosting efforts.

Based on your body’s actual needs, the app provides personalized nutrition recommendations, daily guidance on when to workout, sleep information and much more.
