Swarovski Shine Vio Set by Misfit $249.99
Gone are the days when wearable tech meant ugly rubber wristbands and clunky-looking watches. The newest generation of devices, like Misfit's Swarovski Shine collection shown here, blurs the line between tech and fashion. True to its name, the Shine is encased in a giant Swarovski crystal and can be worn as a pendant necklace or bracelet. (Swarovski has produced a full line of crystal-studded accessories to house the device.) Of course, it's functional, too: The Shine tracks physical activity and sleep via the Misfit app.

Breeze Mint Breathometer $99
Last year, Breeze introduced the first Bluetooth-enabled breathalyzer. Now, the company is tackling two more breath-related issue: halitosis and dehydration. The new Mint automatically draws a sample of air from the user's mouth to measure odor-causing compounds and moisture. It then sends the results to the connected Breathometer app, which displays your current "fresh breath rating" and hydration level. Breeze is currently accepting preorders via Indiegogo, and expects to start shipping Mint this summer.

But more importantly, it can now also be used to make really cool-looking chocolates.
