4 Peculiar Personal Monitors

How Many Devices Do We Really Need?

For those of you who have been reading my blog, you might have noticed that I am currently on the outs with my FitBit. Grant it, I was a long time FitBit user who would go so far as to not do an activity that my FitBit didn’t accurately record. After all, how am I going to reach my 10,000 steps, if I waste time pedaling a bike, I know, it’s crazy. But, a lot of things I’ve done in the name of diet and fitness have been a bit crazy.

Not too long ago, I had enough and wanted to be free from all the devices. So, I tossed the bathroom scale, the FitBit, and all the diet and fitness apps that I was so dependent upon throughout the years.

I recently wrote a blog about improving your posture in Cubicle Land. My research uncovered devices that actually buzz you when you slouch. I found my FitBit annoying so I can’t imagine liking a device that buzzes me every time I slouch.

Peculiar Personal Monitors

I decided to do some research to see what other personal monitoring devices are out there, just to see what I missing.

My list doesn’t include the obvious mainstream fitness devices like FitBit and Garmin. This list includes more of the “out there” devices prompting me to ask the question – “how many devices do we really need?”

  1. Anti-Slouch Devices

These devices signal you to stop slouching. I haven’t personally tried any of these devices, and if a manufacturer wanted to send me one of these devices, I would surely give them an honest try. It appears that these devices have been around for many years, and the Lumo Lift seemed to be the device most mentioned when conducting my internet research. The Lumo will buzz a reminder whenever the wearer slumps back into a slouch. Reviewers stated that it worked but it became fairly annoying. Other slouch devices include the Darma and the Prana. The Prana looks to be something of a seat cushion. The Prana monitors both posture and breathing.

  1. Toilet Devices

I found a toilet seat that measures weight loss after taking a poo. I’m not making this up, check out the link. This device is perfect for the extreme OCD weight tracker. Or maybe it could be fun for fraternity guys to have contests too see who can produce the most crap – just thinking outside the box here.

Another similar device is a Smart Toilet. This device can measure weight, BMI, blood pressure, and blood sugar from the urine. Now that is a Smart toilet.

  1. Fork Monitor

I actually might try this one – the HAPIfork. It’s a Bluetooth fork that tells you to slowdown while eating. It lights up and vibrates—and your phone screen goes red—if you’re shoveling food into your mouth too fast. This could be a great addition to my Intuitive Easting lifestyle.

  1. Sexual Fitness Tracker

I’ve left the best for last – the SexFit

These days, people are putting trackers everywhere—and that, inevitably, leads us to this “sexual fitness tracker.” The man wears the ring. I am sure you can imagine where he wears it. It tracks his pace per minute and calories burned; this data is sent via Bluetooth to your phone. It’s basically a FitBit for your penis

Top Pick

I would be willing to try all these devices, but I’m not sure I would incorporate any of them into my daily tracking.

I’m just going to throw it out there, if anyone would like me to try any of these devices, I would be more than happy to give a try and an honest review (I’m speaking to the makers of the SexFit). Feel free to give me an email.

I’d be curious to know of any other peculiar personal monitoring devices. Let me know in the comments.
