With a built-in bioimpedance analysis and hydration tracker, the Aura Smart Band turns your Apple Watch into the ultimate fitness companion. The bioimpedance analysis allows you to measure fat and muscle mass in your body, while the hydration tracker will ensure you stay hydrated before, during, and after your workouts. By making a series of daily measurements after your workouts, you can get a trend of your body transformation in the Apple HealthKit app. Ultimately, this will help you understand measured data and set new goals for yourself.

Aura got its start on Kickstarter after raising over $100,000, and has since earned 9.1 out of 10 stars on TheGadgetFlow. The idea was to take the tech from those fancy bathroom scales and add it to your wrist as a fitness band. Now it’s offered as a strap for your existing Apple Watch, increasing its already impressive abilities tenfold. All you have to do is strap it on, open the Aura app on your watch, push the button on the strap, and wait 30 seconds to get an accurate and stable data reading of your body’s active and reactive resistance.

Typically, the Aura Strap is available for $118.99 in both a 38 to 40mm option and a 42 to 44mm option. For the next two days, however, you can use the code MERRY15 to save 15% and get either size for only $101.14.
