There is no question that wearable technology and health and fitness trackers are everywhere -- which is where this gear rental platform comes in. Originally a photo and video equipment rental service, Lumoid has expanded to include wearable devices you can test at home. This allows you to have a trial run before purchasing one of your own, which you can also do through the Lumoid site.

If you choose not to buy the item(s), one week gear rental costs $20 for five products. Whether you are curious but non-commital about sleep trackers like Withings Pulse 02 or the Jawbone UP24, fitness devices such as the Garmin Vivofit or wristbands that keep you connected a la Pebble Smartwatch, this platform allows you to compare a variety of wearables.
