AmpStrip Fitness Tracker

Taking the concept of wearables to a new level is the AmpStrip fitness tracker from Connecticut-based FitLinxx. This little sucker (literally) gets applied to the left side of your torso like a Band-Aid, where it then proceeds to measure your heart rate and more.

Waterproof and designed to be worn 24/7, the AmpStrip tracker can last for up to a week on a single charge, with the data being sent to an iOS/Android app via Bluetooth 4.0. Besides keeping tabs on the vital heart rate, AmpStrip also promises to accurately monitor your exercise load, resting heart rate, recovery heart rate, steps taken, calories burned, skin temperature and other biometrics. One drawback is the fact that after a few days, as the adhesive starts to wear away, data will stop flowing from the AmpStrip to the app. FitLinxx says you’ll need to pony up $30 for new adhesives every three to six months.
