David Novak, The Gadget Guy

This year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020) just ended, and "wearables" were a central theme. Wearables are, of course, gadgets you can wear on your person. Here are the 5 Best Wearables we saw at CES 2020.

 

1. NEVER LOSE TRACK

Technology can have a crucial role in off-grid hikes, especially those that help locate your crew. The LynQ Off-Grid People Compass is a little gadget that clipps to clothes or bag and tells users how far and in what direction other people are without any data connection needed. It's perfect for finding people anywhere — even when cell phones fail. $150. lynqme.com

2. TEETH-SHAKING AUDIO

Electrostatic headphones use static charge to move a very thin diaphragm and create sound. While they’re usually better than traditional magnet-driven headphones, electrostatic headphones require a lot of power. However, the geniuses at Helm Audio cracked the code. The HELM True Wireless Headphones are the first true wireless earbuds equipped with electrostatic drivers. They're extremely comfortable, offer a secure fit and deliver unparalleled sound quality with the deepest of bass. $75 helmaudio.com

 

3. TECHNIQUE IS EVERYTHING

Running causes stress on the body, but a poor form can aggravate that stress. The NURVV Run are smart shoe insoles that analyze people's running style and give feedback on how they can improve their technique. The insoles' sensors analyze a runner's cadence, step length, balance, footstrike, and pronation to create their unique running profile, and offer imrpovement suggestions via the App. $300 us.nurvv.com

 

4. OFF THE CUFF

BFR (Blood Flow Restriction) training is believed to be the next big thing in fitness, helping build muscle faster and stronger in a shorter amount of time. The Smart Cuffs come with a personalized blood flow restriction pump designed to promote muscle growth, minimize the loss of muscle mass, and build strength. $350 smarttoolsplus.com

 

5. WATCH AND LEARN

The Suunto 7 Fitness Smartwatch features a built-in GPS, a heart-rate monitor, headphone syncing and water-resistance (50 meters). It comes with Google's WatchOS, integrating Google Pay, Google Assistant, Google Fit and the Play Store into the watch. Supporting 70 fitness activities including running, biking, swimming, hiking, and more, its . fitness stats can be uploaded to the App or transferred to Strava, Endomondo, or Training Peaks.
