Forget wearables; these products turn everyday objects into connected health and wellness devices. 

Health and wellness wearables were all the rage last year at the CES annual consumer electronics tradeshow in Las Vegas. The digital health section of the show featured row upon row of colorful wristbands designed for tracking everything from heart rate to sleep.
