Lifestyle medicine is growing at a rapid pace globally and for its advent, the use of technology is still wavy. With the boom in technology, healthcare related technology has become inconspicuous and an obligatory component for improvisation of lifestyle medicine. The spread of lifestyle medicine has to go hand in hand with technology utilisation for research purpose as well as for practicing lifestyle medicine. There is a biassed opinion among masses against technology for disturbing the lifestyle of current generation. Since a lot has been written and propagated against technology in lifestyle medicine, there is a need to highlight the benefits of technology in lifestyle medicine and how it can improve the clinical practice of lifestyle medicine physicians. For this purpose, research and practice to use these devices should go together for benefit and spread of lifestyle medicine.
