Athos Smart Fitness Apparel
The next trend in wearables might be smart clothing. Unlike fitness bands and your iPhone’s Health app, this intelligent fitness apparel from Athos works by utilizing sensors embedded in the fabric making direct contact with the skin. Fitness enthusiasts can get detailed feedback on their workout, enabling them to monitor their activity on an app and make more informed training decisions. Athos’ smart clothing app tracks your workout in real time, right down to which muscles are used and how hard. $149–398.

Lomography Lomo’Instant Wide Camera
First you had a digital camera, then gave it up for the smartphone, but you can’t deny the appeal of that old instant camera sitting in your attic. While a number of modern reincarnations have appeared on the market, most of them are lacking in the technical department. Lomography aims to bring instant film to more advanced photographers who want a variety of controls at their disposal while retaining the point-and-shoot feel of the old Polaroid cameras. Though the image quality is easily surpassed by an SLR, Lomography is more about enjoying the idiosyncrasies of instant film. $199.

Microsoft Outlook for iOS
Microsoft launched its iOS version for Outlook a little more than a year ago after acquiring Acompli. While it wasn’t groundbreaking, the app improved with time, especially after the company’s acquisition of Sunrise, a popular calendar app, culminating in its latest update taking aim at the popular Inbox by Gmail app. Outlook for iOS now supports a variety of cloud storage services like Dropbox and even its rival, Google Drive. The added customizable swipe features and an intelligent sorting algorithm make workflow on this app a breeze. Free.
