Over the years, we have seen smart health wearables transform from fitness trackers and smartwatches with health applications to smart devices that can measure your metabolism and stress and even help with motion sickness. So, we decided to dive deeply into these new health and fitness devices and provide a list of the best smart devices and wearables that can improve your mental health, reduce stress, and overall wellness.

Lumen, Best Metabolism Reader

Lumen is a handheld device that measures your metabolism by analyzing your breath. The device uses a CO2 sensor and flowmeter to determine the CO2 concentration in your breath. The higher your CO2 concentration, the more you burn carbs for fuel. This is because when your cells metabolize carbs, they produce more CO2 than when they metabolize fat.

Lumen is a valuable tool for people trying to lose weight or improve their fitness. By understanding your metabolism, you can change your diet and exercise routine to help you reach your goals. The benefits of using Lumen include helping you lose weight, improve your fitness, understand your metabolism, and help you change your diet and exercise routine to reach your goals.

If you want to try Lumen, you can purchase the device on the Lumen website, but you also need to sign up for one of the three tracks when purchasing your Lumen. The tracks are plans that work with the device and guide how to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. The Lumen will not work without a track. The three plans are Metabolism Booster, Advanced Fat Burn, and Optimal Health. And they start at $299 for a three-month plan. Note: for all GearBrain readers, if you use the promo code "gearbrain30", you will get a special discount: $30 off.

Reliefband - Best Wearable for Motion Sickness

Reliefband is a smart wearable device that can help relieve nausea and vomiting.


Reliefband is a smart wearable device that uses electrical stimulation to help relieve nausea and vomiting. It is FDA-cleared to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, morning sickness, and chemotherapy.

Reliefband works by sending mild electrical pulses through the median nerve, which is located in the wrist, to the vagus nerve (side of the neck). These pulses stimulate the production of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers. Endorphins also help to reduce nausea and vomiting by calming the stomach and intestines.

Reliefband is easy to use. Simply put it on your wrist, adjust the intensity, and turn it on. Reliefband will start working immediately and can be worn for up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Reliefband is a safe and effective way to relieve nausea and vomiting. It is non-drowsy, non-habit-forming, and does not have any side effects. Reliefband is also portable and can be taken with you wherever you go.

Reliefband has four models for your to choose from: Premier ($280), Sport ($250), the new Flex ($180), and Classic ($150). All are available on the Reliefband website, CVS, West Marine, In-Motion stores (at airports), Target, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart.

So if you suffer from motion sickness, morning sickness during pregnancy, chemotherapy, anxiety, hangovers, or physician-diagnosed migraines, Reliefband devices can deliver all-natural, drug-free prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting and be an adjunct to antiemetics in treating post-operative nausea—a good solution.

GearBrain is in the process of testing Reliefband, so be on the lookout for our full review.

As more smart mental health wearable devices come to market and we have a chance to test them, we will surely add them to this list. But for now, our editors have tried these devices and are recommending them. Note that we did exclude smartwatches from this list because we wanted to show other smart mental health devices available to users who don't wear a smartwatch.
