EIGHT SLEEP POD
This high-tech mattress tracks your sleep patterns and adjusts to your body to make sure you get a good rest every night of the week. Cooling and heating technology provides ideal conditions on each side of the bed and also adjusts the temperature to wake you up without an alarm. Sensors track deep sleep, heart rate and rapid eye movement (REM) so you can see a detailed picture of your sleep patterns. The accompanying app combines this data into a sleep fit score, providing advice on what time to sleep to make up for any deficits and encouraging you to maintain sleep fitness. From $2,495, mattress only.

NIMA SENSORS
Food allergies can be life-threatening in extreme cases, making eating out an anxiety-inducing experience. Take that stress away with a Nima sensor, which tests a small sample of food before you eat. It takes a few minutes to return results, but it’s worth waiting to avert a dangerous reaction. Available in both gluten and peanut versions, Nima claims its sensors are 97 percent accurate. $229 plus $5 per sample capsule.

Krakow’s Old Town Charms with Stunning Beauty, Museums and Great Food

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa. One of four extant Da Vinci portraits, it depicts a young woman, mistress of Ludovico Sforza, embracing an outsize ermine thought to be a reference to Ludovico’s nickname “the white ermine.” The national treasure is a highlight of the significant collection in the city’s Czartoryski Museum, the country’s oldest, comprising three historical buildings: a 19th-century monastery, the 16th-century Municipal Arsenal and the neo-Gothic Palace built in the 19th century for the prominent noble Czartoryski family whose ancestor, Princess Izabela, founded the museum in 1796.
