LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier (2nd Gen.)
The coronavirus pandemic has made us realize how vulnerable our bodies are to viruses and bacteria found in the air. I’m pretty sure many of you have purchased an air purifier at home to keep your home clean, but how can you be sure you’re still protected when you leave the house?
One of the best portable health devices that can protect you outside your home is the LG PuriCare wearable air purifier.

Garmin Venu 2 Plus
Of course, our portable healthy devices list will not be complete without a wearable fitness tracking device. While Garmin is popular for its sports and outdoor devices, the company has branched out to provide customers with wearables to supplement their active lifestyles. One of the best smartwatches they offer is the Venu 2 Plus.
This health device comes with a health snapshot feature that captures key stats, including heart rate2, heart rate variability, respiration, and stress. It also comes with a Pulse Ox sensor, which checks your oxygen saturation at any point of the day, allowing you to see how your body is absorbing oxygen. Like most smartwatches, the Venu 2 Plus allows you to take phone calls on your wrist and respond to any text messages hands-free.
Stay healthy and connected with the Garmin Venu 2 Plus available at Gamin’s Shopee store for only S$639.00.
Theragun Wave Solo
Pain management requires a lot of work. You need to frequently visit a physical therapist, which means you have to work your schedule around it. But if you’re juggling a lot of things all at once, you might find it challenging to squeeze in a trip to a physical therapist whenever you feel pain. Well, not anymore.
With the Theragun Wave Solo, you can massage your muscles anytime you need to. It is similar to a traditional lacrosse ball massage but uses vibration to get deep into your muscle tissues. You can also connect it to the Theragun app for easier control of the massage ball. In the app, you can adjust the intensity of the vibration and get recovery routines that are specific to your needs.
Do note that this doesn’t completely replace physical therapy and should be used only to supplement it.
Enjoy pinpoint pressure treatment whenever you need it with the Theragun Wave Solo available at Synced for only S$119.00.
