From ordering your favorite foods via an app to binging on-demand TV, we've become digital-era creatures of convenience. The same could be said about our exercise habits: During the pandemic, we got used to shuffling six feet from the bedroom to the living for a workout rather than commuting to a health club.

As your home gym continues to take shape, perhaps the next step is syncing devices to the rest of your technology.

NordicTrack's latest innovation is a game changer in the digital training scene, and we think it's worth the investment. The NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbells can automatically switch weight levels with a command through an Alexa-supported device. Best of all, it's on sale for $430, down $69 from its original $499 price tag at Dick's Sporting Goods!

Using this apparatus couldn't be simpler. Say you want to go from 10-pound bicep curls to 15-pound swings, simply ask, "Alexa, increase weight by 5 pounds." Within seconds, a motorized weight selector understands your command and rapidly adjusts accordingly. The weights go from 5 to 50 pounds. Alexa will also respond to specific-load ("Alexa, set weights to 15 pounds") and exercise ("Set weight for tricep curls") commands.

ISelect dumbbells can also save presets for 15 different techniques, including biceps curl, overhead shoulder press, lateral shoulder raise, front shoulder raise, triceps extension, bent over row, chest press, squat, deadlift, lunge, lateral lunge, wood chop, chest fly, reverse fly and renegade row. Don't you want to become an ace renegade rower?

How about if you like the extra work of manually turning the weight or don't own an Alexa-powered device. No problem; this iSelect dumbbell set boasts a dial on the custom-fitted trays that adjusts the weights with a turn of the knob. To get you started on this fitness journey, iFit is including a complimentary 30-day membership that unlocks a plethora of on-demand activities streamable through a tablet or smartphone. You'll also find iFIT Trainers that will lead you through every movement to perfect your form and maximize your session. After that, it costs $39 a month for the feature. Just to be clear, though: An iFit membership is not required to use the weights.

The $430 tag might sound steep, but you can't put a price on ease and a toned, healthy physique. If you're a serious lifter (or just serious about getting into shape), NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbells are just the tools to help you stick to those health and fitness goals.
