Gift Guide – Tech for Fitness Lovers
This time of year everyone seems to be thinking of the holidays, but January is right around the corner, and with it, New Years Resolutions. This week we’re looking at gadgets for athletes and fitness buffs.
Music can be a huge part of any workout, and now thanks to this gadget and others like it, swimmers can have music to pump them up for an extra lap as well. This gadget attaches to your swim goggles and plays music through bone conduction audio. It sounds odd, but this technology is used in everything from lollipops to toothbrushes. Bone conduction audio removes the need for earbuds and cables. It also makes for clearer music when underwater.
This product is great for cyclists and runners. It gives you statistics, like heart rate and speed, without having to take your eyes off the road. This gadget is mounted to your sunglasses and displays information when prompted by the users voice.
One of the biggest part of keeping fit is watching what you eat, but for most of us that’s easier said than done. For those really committed to portion control, the HAPIfork is here to help. The HAPIfork has built in sensors that can tell you how fast you are eating and how many bits you’ve taken. The fork will even vibrate to alert you if you’re going over your preset limits.
This is an activity tracker that can be worn as a bracelet or necklace or kept in your pocket. You can set goals on your mobile phone and the Misfit Shine will help you track your progress.
