At CES 2019, we hit the hallways, press conferences, booths and convention halls to quiz, question and critique the technology people told us would transform your lives. We made our own decisions, and found 14 services, toys, kitchen gadgets and cars — among other products —that we think are the best the show had to offer.
Whether you're concerned about wasting food, are truly tired of companies tracking your life, or have a parent you're worried about who is living alone, we believe these 14 really do have the potential to shift your life substantially in the coming year. Here are GearBrain's winners of the Best of CES 2019.
Withing BPM Core
The ability to watch over our health at home — or anywhere — is an important first step to catching issues earlier, potentially saving lives. Withings' new BPM Core is a shift away from smartwatches that can read an electrocardiogram or ECG (although they one of those too) to a medical device that's priced for consumers. In just 90 seconds, the cuff can take blood pressure readings, an ECG, and also the blood flow near the heart to read potential valve issues which can pick up potential signs of valvular heart disease. It's priced at $249.95 — and you don't even need your smartphone. (Available on Amazon.)
