The Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet From Case-Mate

Designer Rebecca Minkoff has been creating handbags, shoes and jewelry for years, but with this $120 bracelet, she designed a product that delivers instant notifications from an Apple iPhone to a wearer's wrist with a subtle vibration alert. The bracelet has a 30-day battery life and can be set to only alert the wearer of texts and calls from an "inner circle" of up to 25 friends.

The Healbe GoBe Automatic Body Manager

The GoBe is a wearable device that tracks a wearer's caloric intake and calorie burn without any manual logging of meals or activities through three special built-in sensors. The $299.99 GoBe also provides information about a wearer's hydration, stress, sleep quality, heart rate and blood pressure.

How the GoBe Does Its Tracking

The $299.99 Healbe GoBe tracks a wearer's caloric intake by measuring and tracking a person's blood glucose production and levels after carbohydrates are consumed and begin to be digested. As glucose concentrations rise, human cells absorb glucose and release water. The GoBe uses an impedance sensor to measure the fluid moving in and out of a wearer's cells, providing the readings.
