Grab yourself a cool wifi gadget

These everyday household gadgets have all got a little bit smarter. See which one takes your fancy.

Wifi Bathroom Scales

These snazzy scales track your weight and help you stay on plan, whether to lose weight or to try to bulk up those muscles. wifi gadgets

Not only do they measure your weight in kg, stone and pounds, but through your wifi they will record your weight  so you can see how your fitness plan is going. It even links to a ftiness app available for your phone or tablet. Most wifi scales measure your BMI and some record your heart rate too!

As always there are lots of different ones on the market, and they are not cheap, but the dedicated fitness geek will love them.

Baby Camera Monitor

With these handy devices you can always be keeping half an eye on your baby, even when they are fast asleep upstairs.

These baby monitors connect to your phone or tablet and allow you to both see and hear your baby wherever you are within wifi range. The night vision mode enables you to even see in the dark. The monitor displays the room’s humidity and temperature and you can even soothe your baby from the app on your phone.

USB Wall Socket

Get rid of all the large plugs needed to charge devices, and replace your electric sockets with ones that include USB chargers. The wall sockets are able to charge all phones and tablets – all you need is a lead.

Smart Slow Cookers

There is no end to the ways we can use Wifi these days – even allowing us to send messages to our slow cooker, honestly, what next?

The Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker from Belkin allows you to both control temperatures and cook times from your Android ohone. It even notifies you when the food is ready.

Just to say that everything has now been connected and fine tuned. Just done a speed test with Jon and I'm getting great speeds beyond my wildest dreams.
