Remember when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic? People were stockpiling hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray to the point that hospitals couldn’t keep up with demand. Fortunately, everybody will now get a reasonable supply of sanitizer at regular rates.
Last year, the Squeezyband was a great gift for germaphobes, but now it’s much more important to keep a limited supply of hand sanitizer on hand.
This is a small bracelet with a small amount of hand sanitizer attached. Push down on the band to get a drop of sanitizer on your thumb, which you can quickly add on your palms.
It’s a small, easy, and effective way to keep your hands bacteria-free at any time of day.
ThermBot is the modern-day thermometer, I suppose. This is not a thermometer that can be inserted into a painful orifice. It doesn’t need a battery to work, and it’s small and portable enough to take with you everywhere you go.
Using USB-C or Lightning, the ThermBot will easily pull power from your iOS or Android device. It checks the forehead temperature from an inch away and provides medically accurate data. You can see if you’re on the verge of a fever or if you’re well enough to eat out this evening in a fraction of a second.
Oura Ring – Health Gadgets

Take a look at the features and you’ll see why.
The Oura bracelet, unlike other fitness wearables, bundles its tracking hardware into such a compact footprint that you won’t even know you’re wearing it.
It just needs to be paid about once a week, so there’s no reason to remove it from your nightstand every day.
The Oura has infrared LEDs, NTC temperature sensors, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope, as well as an accurate and convenient location to record body metrics such as heart rate, HRV, temperature, steps, and more.
The Oura ring is a beautiful looking housing for this measurement technology, even though it is a little more expensive than the typical fitness gadget.

The Amazon Halo is only available via their Early Access service in the United States.

Muse 2 Headband – Health Gadgets
This device monitors your brain function, and before you swipe past it thinking, “Yeah, right,” consider what we’re saying. According to Muse, the Muse 2 is a “immersive meditation platform that offers real-time updates on your mental well-being.” When connected to the companion app, which tracks your brain function as you listen to calming meditations, you’re expected to wear the headband during supervised relaxing sessions and when connected to the companion app. Although it can seem to be a little woo-woo, many users claim that it has helped them relax.
