The tech that helps you get the most from your workout is now a whole lot smarter. New products like heart monitors, headphones and wearables maximize your workout, help you lose weight, burn more calories and even watch your sun exposure. Here are five new gadgets that will bring your workout to a new level.

La Roche-Posay My UV Patch Sun Exposure Sensor

My UV Patch

When it comes to working out, burning should be strictly for calories. So before you head outside for a run, slap on this My UV Patch by La Roche-Posay to make sure you’re not overexposed to the sun when you’re working out. The thin, water-resistant patch is the first stretchable skin sensor designed to monitor UV radiation in real time. It even factors in individual skin tone to measure sun contact with the sun. The compatible app (for iOS and Android devices) tracks your personalized UV exposure and gives you a heads-up if you need to cover up.

Price: Available as a gift with an Anthelios sunscreen purchase and through key physicians listed at La Roche-Posay
