Tis the season to renew your get-in-shape resolutions. Old school is great, but get the most out of your limited time to hit the gym or trails with these new fitness helpers.
Samsung GearFit 2
This new dust-and-water-resistant take on the wrist-bound activity tracker will be music to your ears, literally. The GearFit 2 holds your music in its little brain (500 songs or access to Spotify). Ditch the clunky phone and worries about losing it halfway up the ridge. With a curved screen and brilliant Super AMOLED customizable display, darkness or glare is never an issue and it only needs to visit the charging base every four days.
QardioBase Wireless Smart Scale
We don’t believe in making yourself a slave to the numbers, but we love the insight and integration you get from this Bluetooth/Wifi synched smart scale. Set goals, keep track of exercise, progress, body composition and more. We also seriously dig the chic look and the Pregnancy Mode which gets your head out of the losing game — it even greets you with a Smart Feedback “smile” instead of stark numbers.
Apple Watch Nike+
This tech’y running partner pairs Nike Sport Bands with Apple Watch Series 2, featuring GPS, a two-times-brighter display, water resistance to 50 meters, dual-core processor and watchOS 3 to stay connected and get those oh-so-important kid or baby calls when needed. Siri will be along for the run, and the Nike element includes coaching plans that adapt to your unique schedule and progress, with guidance from the world’s best coaches and athletes.
ZeroWater Filtration Pitcher
What’s better for your workout than hydrating? But if you are concerned about lead levels and other contaminants in drinking water, this Five-Stage Ion Exchange water filtration system fits right into the fridge and is NSF certified to reduce lead, mercury and other heavy metals. Even better, ZeroWater removes 99.6% total dissolved solids and pharmaceuticals, resulting in the only filtration system to reach FDA Approval of Purified Bottled Water. Unlike other filter bottles, you need not wonder if it is working, use the digital scanner on the lid to test each glass.
