5 Health Trackers Beyond Counting Steps

You don’t need a 10,000-steps-a-day goal to reap the benefits of a wearable tracker. Give it up for new wearables—vetted by our pros—that measure so much more than steps and sleep. They’ll keep you safe from creepers, encourage you to stand up straight, and so much more.

Quell Pain Relief Technology

Use it to: Relieve Chronic Pain

Via an electrode strip wrapped around your calf, the gizmo delivers painless electrical pulses (you control them manually or with an app) that help your body overwhelm, then drown out, pain signals caused by chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, lower-back problems, and arthritis. The caveat: It may take up to four weeks of continuous wear for max relief. ($249, quellrelief.com)


Use it to: Stay Safe

In sticky situations (e.g., if a stranger approaches you in an empty parking lot), tap the stylish 18-karat-gold-plated cuff three times. The band will automatically send your preprogrammed contacts an SOS text with your exact GPS location and, for Android users, 60 seconds of audio from your environment. (From $295, wisewear.com)


Use it to: Subdue Stress

Worn as either a bracelet, necklace, or clip, the wood and metal charm pinpoints when you’re likely to feel frazzled by charting functions such as your menstrual cycle, sleep quality, and activity levels. When the Leaf registers a high stress score, its app will talk you through a two- to 10-minute guided meditation. Bonus de-stressor: The battery lasts for six months. ($139, bellabeat.com)


Use it to: Improve Posture

Think of this lightweight posture policer as a modern version of Mom’s “sit up straight!” refrain. It magnetically attaches to your shirt (only the silver square is visible) and detects subtle shifts in the tilt of your torso. When you start to slump, it gently buzzes to remind you to adjust your standing or sitting stance. ($80, lumobodytech.com)
