5 min read

Cutting-edge tech has never been as accessible to the man on the street. Gone are the days of tinny wired headphones, clunky step-counters and overpriced juicers. In 2024, you can 3D print from your bedside table, cook a Neapolitan-style pizza at 450°C on your kitchen counter, and defy ageing from your sofa with an LED face mask.

Over the past year, our team of editors and writers have been testing out the very best next-gen tools, toys and gadgets for working, sweating and relaxing better. From smartwatches to smart guitars to headphones to turntables, welcome to the 2024 instalment of the Men’s Health Tech Awards.
