While this year is going to be the year of the wearable, there are already plenty of top body-dwelling devices to enhance your health and your life.
We spent plenty of 2014 using and reviewing wearable kit from smart watches and activity trackers to heart rate sensing headphones. So whether you're fit, unfit or downright unhealthy, these are some options that can help enhance your healthy life for the better.
LG G Watch R
The LG G Watch won Best Wearable at the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards 2014 so it sits firmly atop this list. While it's still limited by Google's Android Wear operating system it's certainly the best smartwatch out there.
The G Watch R not only looks great but manages to make the chunky look functional with a hefty battery that will keep going long after your phone has died. A rare treat for wearables. Also it has a built-in heart rate monitor and pedometer as well as storage for music so it can be used as a stand-alone fitness tracker without your phone, should you want it. Not bad for £220.

The Jabra Pulse is a unique offering in that it lives in your ears. These Bluetooth headphones not only act as excellent headphones without the tangle of wires but you also get a personal trainer for your buck. Thanks to a heart rate monitor and some intelligent software you can both listen to music and train to heart rate zones all thanks to this one device.
Although the battery life could be better and you will need a smartphone with Bluetooth connection, the overall software experience is excellent, including spoken audio feedback so you don't have to glance at a screen. At £200 it's a considered purchase - and a similar price to a number of GPS toting watches which admittedly don't have audio - but one we think is worth every penny.

If the thought of charging another device is too much for you but you believe step tracking could make you fitter the £80 Garmin Vivofit is perfect. Thanks to a traditional watch battery this little wrist wearable can keep on tracking for an entire year before you need to splash out all of £3 for a new battery.
The device even learns your habits and automatically generates daily goals, plus you can monitor your sleep patterns if you never take the device off.
The main drawback most will find is the passive LCD doesn't illuminate, so can't be seen in the dark. But that's all for the sake of year-long battery - something no other tracker we've used offers.

£150, read Pebble Steel review
A smartwatch but without the worry of battery chewing thanks to that low power display. Also, as an open original Kickstarter it's still relatively open source meaning the variety of apps that work with this device, regardless of mobile connected to it, is huge.
The Steel version offers all the low power screen positives of the original but with a more premium design.
The whole idea of the Pebble smartwatch is to get notifications from your phone and to do stuff with apps. On the notifications side of things the new Pebble 2.0 software works on iPhone and Android. And you can set all the notifications you want so you're not annoyed by mates on Facebook uploading new runs everyday.

Samsung Gear Fit
Samsung's Gear Fit has the most advanced screen on any activity tracker. Sammy has managed to cram a full 1.87-inch curved Super AMOLED screen into the IP67-rated wearable. All this for £150.
Gear Fit tracks steps, controls music on your phone, and displays notifications for calls, messages and social media updates. It's a blend between sports activity tracker and notification toting smartwatch While it's heavily reliant on the phone it will still track your daily routine even when separated from the mobile.

TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio
The TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio is the only device in our list to offer comprehensive sports tracking separate to a mobile thanks to built-in GPS. While this will drain battery when in use it means it can work independently of a phone. It also has a built-in heart rate monitor so you can train within zones without an uncomfortable chest strap. And it'll work for running or cycling.
An iOS app, with Android incoming, allows for quick syncing of data meaning no need to fire up the computer after each training session. It's not cheap but for a complete sports solution it might just be worth it.
