With 2020 in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start giving some thought to the goals you hope to accomplish in the year to come. New Year’s resolutions can be exciting and motivating, but they can also become disappointing when they’re ultimately dropped or forgotten about just a few weeks into the new year.

Lucky for you, there are numerous smart gadget options for keeping you on track to accomplishing your goals in 2021. We’ve rounded up a list of some of the best to help start your year off on the right foot.

It’s no secret that drinking water is good for your overall health, but making sure you get enough H20 is easier said than done. That’s where a smart water bottle like the Hidrate Spark comes in. This smart water bottle helps track how much water you’re drinking in the Hidrate Spark app and sends helpful reminders to your smartphone via Bluetooth when you’re not staying hydrated enough. There's also an LED smart sensor on the front that glows when it's time to rehydrate. It comes with a rechargeable battery and charging cable, so you can always keep tabs on your daily water intake.

Cleanliness is always a good goal for the year ahead and to make the process easier, you can’t go wrong with a robot vacuum. These gadgets do the cleaning for you, often when you’re at work or sleeping, and they don’t take any days off. Robot vacuums are especially helpful for pet owners who feel like they can’t vacuum enough to stay ahead of the pet hair. While there are several options currently available, we’ve tested a ton of them and think the Eufy RoboVac 11s offers great value for money. Its slim design means it can access those hard-to-reach spots and we love how well it picks up dirt.
