5) Bluetooth Toothbrush

You knew it had to exist, and it does. Oral B’s Precision Black 7000 rechargeable electronic Bluetooth toothbrush provides brushers with a visible sensor that lights up if you’re brushing too hard and a timer keeps you cleaning for 2 minutes, the dentist-recommended amount of time.

This handy device includes a SmartGuide for personalized oral care coaching and a risk-free 60 day challenge that allows you to return it for a full refund if you decide you’d rather just brush with the power of your arm.
