Warby Parker's try-before-you-buy model continues to seep into any business small enough to fit into a mailbox. And this time, it's wearables.

Now if the phrase "the Warby Parker for wearables" makes you want to close your laptop and hurl it into the ocean, I get it. Believe me. In this case, though, the analogy is useful for understanding what is actually going on here. Today, gadget rental companyLumoid.com is launching a new program that will ship you a box of five fitness trackers of your choosing to try out for a week: Fitbit, Jawbone Up, Nike+ products, the swim-friendly Garmin Vivosmart, Samsung's Gear Fit—you name it.

If you decide to buy, say, a Fitbit One that you can clip onto your belt rather than a bracelet, great! Before your seven days are up, simply send the box back with all five items, pay up, and Lumoid will send you a brand-new Fitbit One, totally unused, as if you ordered one from a store.
