On paper, the annual Consumer Electronics Show sounds like a boring, nerdy snoozefest. Imagine it: Rows and rows of booths full of techies trying to convince industry pros that their invention will be the next big thing.
In reality, perusing the aisles at CES is like walking through Tomorrowland—the gadgets and gizmos could be straight out of an episode of the Jetsons. And some of the coolest debuts at CES 2017 are focused on health and wellness technology … which is obviously right up our alley. Read on for the best products we’ve seen (so far!) at CES 2017.

As much as we love our Apple watch, sometimes it’s a bit too bulky, casual, and “tech-y” to wear for certain events, like an important meeting or a special night out. The Motiv ring is a sleek alternative; the minimalist, gender-neutral activity and sleep tracker connects directly to your smartphone.

Documenting your kid’s every move can be exhausting. Well, at least it’ll exhaust your phone battery—and no mom wants to be stuck with a dead iPhone when her toddler does something cute. This smart Moxi Stroller uses the energy of the stroller’s moving wheels to power up your mobile. Plus, it tells you how far you’ve walked and how many calories you’ve burned.

Samsung Family Hub 2.0 Smart Fridge

For busy people, grocery shopping can be a serious time suck. But this smart fridge allows you to see what you need while you’re in the grocery store, thanks to a built-in spy cam that projects the inside of your fridge onto your iPhone app. You’ll never need to make a list again! Even better? You can order groceries to be delivered directly from your fridge.

This year’s CES developments aren’t just limited to health and business—beauty electronics are making a real splash, too. The Hi Mirror analyzes your complexion every morning, and tells you exactly what products you should use to get glowing.

For environmentally conscious folks, the choice to compost food scraps is a no-brainer. But many city-dwellers don’t have the space to house a composting pile … or a garden to use their beautiful fertilizer in. Zera aims to correct these issues, and then some. In what looks like a minimalist, chic garbage can, Zera transforms a week’s worth of food waste into fertilizer in just under 24 hours. Pretty amazing, considering most compost piles take months to decompose and become viable.
