Three fitness apps, gadgets and trends you need to know about this month 

The App: “SleepCycle“

You can only start to live well if you sleep well, and stats say we generally don’t. This app monitors sleep patterns (sound and movement) to wake you with an alarm only during light sleep, so you feel most rested.

No more devices in bed! Sleep Cycle 5.0 introduces sound analysis sleep tracking to the world.

The Workout: Man-made muscle

One of 2016’s trends is building strength and muscle without equipment. Pilates, calisthenics and bodyweight routines are back; next month’s Battle Of The Bars 16 in Las Vegas are the unofficial no-kit fitness world champs.


The Tech: Kito+

A phone case/health tracker that measures blood oxygen levels, skin temperature, heart rate, breathing, and gives you an ECG. There’s also an app to analyse the data.

Downside: for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus only.
