Top 100 Gadgets Ideas in March

From Automated Fitness Wearables to Infant Health Monitors

— April 1, 2017 — Tech
As the March 2017 gadget trends reveal, there is a growing emphasis on using technology to cure common health issues. Whether it is losing weight or keeping an eye on a baby's vitals, there is a high-tech solution for just about every ailment.

When it comes to health and fitness, wearables continue to dominate. For instance, devices such as the GoBe2 automatic body manger keep track of everything from sleep to hydration levels and not simply how many steps the user has taken. Similarly, the TomTom Touch Cardio watch provide a host of fitness-tracking features for a fraction of the cost of other devices.

Beyond the world of fitness, digital devices are also being used to solve a number of specific ailments. Indeed, the March 2017 gadget trends reveal that technology is being used to improve life for people of all ages. For instance, the Raybaby monitor is helping parents keep a closer eye on their infants, while the eSight 3 is helping the visually impaired to see with the use of liquid lens technology.
