This month we are taking part in increasing the awareness of breast cancer, together with people around the world, and we made a collection of gadgets and accessories that can help you take part. Some of the devices presented below just look great and come in pink, while a percentage of the sale of others go to foundations that help researching breast cancer treatments and prevention methods.
i.relax ZEN Aroma Diffuser by Oregon Scientific takes care of your senses using aromatherapy and color light therapy. Surrounded by natural wood, the 6 colors of soft glowing light relax you, while the device also produces nice sounds and scents meant to calm your spirit to help you sleep easier. You can connect ZEN to your music player to listen to your favorite music and, thanks to the ultrasonic technology, the device doesn’t use flames or heat sources. It also comes with a remote control and features sleep timer function, as well as low water level indicator. You can find it at Oregon Scientific, at a price of £99.99.
Heart Rate Monitor
A portable gadget like the Gaiam Strap-Free Touch Trainer from Oregon Scientific helps women track and maximize workout, while staying fashionable. It features an intuitive user interface based on a slim form factor and directional touch screen. The ECG technology eliminates the use of a chest belt, making the experience of using a heart rate monitor more comfortable. If you’re wondering how you’ll check your heart rate, it’s simple. All you have to do is place one or two fingers on the lens’ sensor and see the results within seconds.
Additional features include the soft silicon strap, burned calories calculator, alert function for high or low heart rate levels, stopwatch, clock, calendar, alarm, and EL backlight so you can check readings even in low light conditions. You can get the pink heart rate monitor and personal trainer from Amazon for $64.30.
Electronic Eyelash Curler
You probably need to have long eyelashes for this device to work, but I’m curious to know how it handles short eyelashes like mine too. The new Heated Eyelash Curler from Panasonic comes in pink with silver accents, in a small form factor that allows you to carry it inside a purse and use it anywhere. It powers from one AA battery to gently heat and rotate the built-in heated comb to curl your lashes. Launched by Panasonic earlier this year at a suggested retail price of $39.99, the lifestyle gadget is included in the company’s new Compact Beauty Series which includes a Precision Body Shaver, a Heated Eyelash Curler, a Precision Facial Hair Trimmer, and a Compact Toothbrush. Find it at Amazon, at a price of $41.34.

To be part of the fight against breast cancer, Skil launched the Tools for the Cure campaign to donate 10% of every iXO Pink cordless screwdriver to Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. The cordless screwdriver is small, lightweight and compact. It’s a tool that shouldn’t miss from your home because it helps to quickly fix things for 18 months until a new recharge. Skil iXO Pink comes in a kit together with a right angle attachment, a 5-piece bit set, charger, and a pink/black carrying bag. You can find it at Amazon at $39.98.

Cell Phone Case With Built-in Pepper Spray
When you feel someone is following you in the night, you can get your iPhone out and hold it in your hand, ready to spray. The stalker won’t have a clue that your cell phone has a pepper spray attached. This smart design comes from Sabre and the product is called the SmartGuard Pink iPhone Case with built in SABRE Red Pepper Spray.
The iPhone case is available in versions compatible with iPhone 3 and 4 and maybe they will soon release a model compatible with iPhone 5.

Fashionable Coffee Maker
Wouldn’t this coffee machine look good in your kitchen? I think it would add more freshness to the room in addition to preparing 12 cups of coffee for you and your guests.
The BELLA Dots 12-Cup Coffee Maker was launched in several eye-catching colors earlier this year and the pink model makes me think of femininity, style and the breast cancer awareness month.
