Lumen

The Lumen is a portable hand-held device to “hack your metabolism”. You blow into the gadget and its carbon dioxide sensors determine whether your body is using fats or carbohydrates as a source of energy. Knowing that can help you decide what and when to eat to burn fat and enhance your workouts. The device links to an app to track daily metabolic activity and its effects on sleep, exercise and nutrition. £299, lumen.me
