Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE BOX - BY / JEN­NIFER DUD­LEY-NI­CHOL­SON & ROD CH­ESTER

QARDIOARM

The TGA-ap­proved QardioArm is a wire­less blood pres­sure mon­i­tor in a small, sleek pack­age. You can email re­sults to your doc­tor, see a sim­ple in­ter­pre­ta­tion of what your read­ing means, and get a re­minder to check again. $180 / getqar­dio.com

GARMIN FORERUNNER 935

You can pair this ex­cel­lent mul­ti­sport watch with the Run­ning Dy­nam­ics Pod ($109) to get ex­ten­sive tech­nique anal­y­sis. It has a wrist-based heart-rate sen­sor and a bat­tery life up to 24 hours in GPS mode. $699 / garmin.com.au

BODYGUARDZ TRAINR PRO CASE

This well-de­signed range of iPhone cases con­tains a lin­ing of mil­i­tary-grade, shock-block­ing ma­te­rial. Un­for­tu­nately, the arm­band is likely to be too small for some peo­ple and it lacks a quick-re­lease sys­tem. $75 / au.bodyguardz.com

QARDIOBASE

Bath­room scales can be con­fronting but these try to over­come num­ber shock with smi­ley faces in­di­cat­ing progress to­wards your weight goal. The scales trans­mit weight, body mass in­dex, and full body com­po­si­tion data to an app. $250 / getqar­dio.com
