#2: The Garmin Index Smart Scale
Monitoring your progress is a vital aspect of your fitness journey.

It measures your weight, body mass index (BMI) and body fat/water percentage and shares that data directly to the Health app and the Garmin Connect app on your iPhone.
This accessory is also family friendly as it allows up to 16 people to use it, and has their body composition metrics automatically uploaded directly to their own Garmin Connect accounts.

The Spire Mindfulness and Activity Tracker and the accompanying app can help you to become more mindful and remain calm throughout the day.
Simply clip the device onto your clothing, and the tiny Spire stone senses respiratory patterns, to detect changes in your state of mind by measuring tension, calm and focus.
Throughout your workout, you will receive notifications, rich insights and breathing exercises delivered to your iOS device.
Seven years of research into the science of breathing went into creating this device, to understand how your state of mind affects how you breathe, and likewise, how you breathe affects your state of mind.
Studies have shown that slow, deep and consistent breathing can lower blood pressure, reduce stress and increase the flow of endorphins in your bloodstream.
The app provides you with:
-Gentle reminders via notifications to take a deep breath, when it senses that you are tense.
