Want to know what it might feel like to take a shower in the year 3000? Consider giving your bathroom a smart makeover by kitting it out with the latest must-have bathroom tech. From clever scales that can track your stats to Wi-Fi enabled heated towel racks that can save you money and time, we’ve created a checklist of the most innovative additions to any bathroom.
A smarter scale
Still using a scale that only tracks your weight? Switching to a smart scale will give you a much clearer picture of your health by measuring your body max index, lean mass and body fat percentage. Many of the most popular can also automatically sync to wearable fitness tracker apps so you can see your progress over time. You also don’t have to fuss with settings to adjust to each family member as the scale can automatically figure out who’s who based on prior readings.
There once was a time when owning an electric toothbrush could give your bathroom major tech cred. Now, however, rotating heads are old news and pulsating sonic brushes enhanced by Bluetooth capabilities are du jour. Why Bluetooth? This way, you can connect to apps that monitor your dental hygiene habits and even coach you to become a better brusher! Also, you’ll never have to wonder if your kids are really brushing their teeth.
Talk about a power shower
You finally bought that fancy shower head. The one with all the different water pressure settings, colorful LED lights and a speaker to play music. So why not go a step further and get a wall-mounted digital bathroom controller? The best kind are compatible with home automation systems. So, if you’re using something like Alexa or Google Home, you can ask your virtual assistant to set up your shower – just the way you like it – before you even step into the bathroom.
The cleverest heated towel rack
Bathroom Butler heated towel racks make use of pioneering technology to rapidly dry your towels in a way that blitzes bacteria. This means you can use your power-hungry tumble dryer and washing machines a lot less often. While that’s already pretty smart, our Wi-Fi enabled models take things a step further, allowing you to control them via your phone or tablet. You can also program them to turn on and off according to your routine for further energy savings. Think “Turn on when I get home” or “Turn off when the alarm system is enabled”. They’re also available in a range of luxe-looking styles ensuring they put the “pretty” in “pretty smart”.
