Since we are spend­ing more time in­doors, the Ki­ne­sis Per­sonal by Techn­o­gym is the ul­ti­mate com­pan­ion. Made for co-or­di­nated move­ments us­ing re­sis­tance, it of­fers the scope for 200 work­out moves, within a range of dis­ci­plines, in­clud­ing yoga, Pi­lates and Tai Chi, in a space of less than one square me­tre. It’ll also make a strong de­sign statement in your space – the Her­itage ver­sion comes with oak bars, and is avail­able in four colours: black, cream, brown leather and a new lim­ited-edi­tion gold. The Vi­sion ver­sion, mean­while, is crafted from pol­ished steel.

Cre­ated in part­ner­ship with sleep sci­en­tists, Kokoon head­phones will help you nod off – or sim­ply switch off. Flex­i­ble sil­i­cone head­phones are in­tended for ex­tended wear, even if you are ly­ing down, and come with ac­tive noise can­cel­la­tion and Sleep­guard Au­dio, which will adapt your au­dio as you fall asleep. The head­phones work with any app, but the ded­i­cated Kokoon Re­lax app in­cludes au­dio tech­niques used in cog­ni­tive be­havioural ther­apy, as well as spe­cialised sound­scapes – from the so­nance of the sea to the gen­tle pat­ter of rain. Us­ing sen­sor data, the app will also let you know how well you slept and of­fer rec­om­men­da­tions to im­prove your slum­ber. Kokoon head­phones, Dh1,157,


Keep those pearly whites in mint con­di­tion with Foreo’s Issa 2 elec­tric tooth­brush. The sleek, wa­ter­proof, er­gonomic de­sign in­cludes a soft sil­i­cone body and poly­mer bris­tles, which har­bour less bac­te­ria than nor­mal tooth­brushes. It comes in black, cobalt blue, mint green and baby pink ver­sions. Best of all, a sin­gle hour’s charge will keep it go­ing for an en­tire year. One less thing to worry about.

Sennheiser’s first foray into home en­ter­tain­ment speak­ers, the Ambeo Soundbar, of­fers an el­e­gant, all-in-one so­lu­tion and prom­ises a 3D home au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence. Be­neath its lac­quered and brushed alu­minum sur­face, it is pow­ered by 13 driv­ers, which re­sult in an im­mer­sive 5.1.4 sound sys­tem and pow­er­ful bass, with­out the need for ad­di­tional speak­ers or an ex­ter­nal sub­woofer. An in­tu­itive room cal­i­bra­tion func­tion also en­sures op­ti­mised sound depend­ing on the spe­cific room and your pre­ferred seat­ing po­si­tion. Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar, Dh9,999, en-ae.
