IN THE KITCHEN

The Kitchen Safe

This nifty (and slightly hilarious) device pictured above will help you and your family resist temptation. Tempted to snack?

Put your phones, remotes, gaming controllers in the safe and get the family outside for fresh air and exercise.

GET TRACKING

Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity and Sleep Wristband

Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

Warning: The Polar Heart Rate Monitor can get addictive! It doesn’t just track calories burned and heart rate, it does a whole lot more. The Star Training Program feature sets weekly targets, gives feedback on your training, and is water resistant to 30 metres. It’s almost as good as having your own PT on your wrist!

Tanita BC-541 InnerScan Body Composition Monitor

ON THE MOVE

The Run Lock

Let’s face it – stuffing car keys into our bra (ladies!) or socks (fellas!) is uncomfortable and not a good look. With the Run Lock, just pop your keys inside the compartment and lock it onto your car door handle for a comfier adventure.
Price: $44.99 online.
