Gain some extra motivation for your at-home workouts with our selection of formidable fitness tech, from the best trackers to a high-tech mirror that you can workout with and a bottle which cleans itself.
These gadgets will help you achieve peak performance and wouldn't look out of place in a luxury gym.
1)The Smart Rope
Ask any professional athlete and they will tell you that skipping is one of the best forms of cardio. The Tangram Smart Rope is here to help you take it up a level. This gadget displays your fitness data in mid-air via a clever LED light display on the rope itself; the LEDs fire at different times as the Smart Rope rotates around you, creating the appearance of a single floating display during your workout. It is also able to store data to help you stay at the top of your game.

2) The Smart Watch
APPLE WATCH SERIES 5
The Apple Watch Series 5 is the ultimate device for a healthy life. The in-built health app allows you to see how your cholesterol or blood pressure has changed over the years, and you can review your exercise activity for a given day, week or month. How does it work? Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals to track your fitness. Whether you want to ensure you stay hydrated, make healthier food choices or reduce stress, the watch is designed to help you prioritise your goals and stay healthy.

3) The Oura Ring
Fans of the Oura include the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and it's not hard to see why. The ring's advanced technology monitors your body's pulse, movement and temperature to give you a holistic picture of your health. Understand exactly what your body is ready for each day by learning how you’ve been balancing sleep, activity, and recovery. Our favourite feature tells you how rested you are and when you can and should work out. Packed with infrared LEDs, temperature sensors, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope, it’s a convenient way to capture body measurements like heart rate, temperature, steps and more. It’s water resistant and a single charge lasts up to seven days. Oura Ring, £274, Oura
4) Larq Bottle
The Larq Bottle is a reusable insulated water bottle with digital purification from an inbuilt UV-C LED light. The water and bottle are purified at the touch of a button, neutralising up to 99.9% of harmful germs. It intelligently activates every two hours, keeping your contents automatically sanitised, while the double-insulated construction keeps your water cold for 24 hours - or hot for 12 - in a travel-friendly size. One charge via USB lasts up to a month with no replacement filters or batteries needed.

5) The Theragun
With endorsements from Kim Kardashian, Ashley Graham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sam Smith, to name but a few, the Theragun delivers an A-list worthy deep-muscle treatment unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The percussive therapy device releases muscle tension and soreness which in turn promotes faster muscle recovery and increases circulation in tired, fatigued muscles. How does it work? The Theragun impacts the muscle with a precise, scientifically calibrated combination to reach 60% deeper into muscle than the average massager, at 40 times a second.
