Best Fitness Gifts

20

It used to be that a pair of running shoes and some clean workout clothes were all the fitness gear you needed.

These days, a beats-blasting playlist and a fitness tracker are as essential to a good workout as anything else. Whether you or someone you know is just starting out on their fitness journey, or they're seasoned athletes looking to take their training to the next level, here's our recommendations for the best fitness tech to enhance your workouts and help you hit your fitness goals.

Fitbit Charge 2

When it comes to fitness trackers, Fitbit still reigns supreme. They've become so ubiquitous, chances are everyone has a co-worker, family or friend obsessed with tracking their steps and other fitness stats on their wrist. If you're unfamiliar, Fitbits track steps taken, flights of stairs climbed, and calories burned throughout your day.

Fitbit's latest wrist accessory, the Charge 2, is their absolute best yet. First, there's the vertically-orientated OLED display, which you tap to cycle through the different statistics and modes. The Charge 2 features Fitbit's PurePulse continuous heart rate monitor, which lets you quickly check your current heart rate at any moment, and also features the convenience call, text and calendar notifications that you'd expect from wearable tech.

Built-in GPS is missing, but Connected GPS allows you to use your phone's GPS to map your outdoor runs when tethered to your phone via Bluetooth. The silicone strap is sweat resistant, but you'll want to make sure to clean and dry it after each workout. It's also not waterproof, so don't even think about swimming with it on.

See at Amazon

Moto 360 Sport

The Moto 360 Sport is a smartwatch that combines many of the functions people want in a fitness tracker with the style and added functionality that's included with Android Wear.

As the name implies, this is the sportier version of the second generation Moto 360. Differentiating it from the non-sport is the inclusion of built-in GPS (a nice feature that's even missing on the FitBit Charge 2) and a body wrapped silicone strap. These two features, along with the heart rate monitor, make the Moto 360 Sport ideal to wear during workouts. The Moto 360 Sport's built-in GPS means you can leave your phone at home and go for a run, while still being able to wirelessly listen to your music via Bluetooth headphones. And the silicone strap, while a magnet for lint and dust, is also sweatproof and easy enough to clean.

Above all else, you'll get a piece of wearable tech you'll feel comfortable wearing from the office to the gym, with all the usefulness that Android Wear offers.

Withings Body Wi-Fi scale

Take complete control of your weight using the Withings WS-50, the smart scale that's designed to accurately measure your weight, BMI, heart rate, and even monitor the indoor air quality of your living space.

Allowing up to eight users on its personalized display, each person in your household can track their weight securely and monitor their goals using the Health Mate app (available for Android and iOS). As you weigh yourself each day, the WS-50 will display the weather and average temperature, giving you a heads up on how to dress before stepping outside and getting active. This smart scale is also compatible with a variety of other health apps including Google Fit, Apple Health, Runkeeper, LoseIt!, MyFitnessPal, and more.

TuneBand Go armband

There are hundreds of armband smartphone cases out there for bringing your phone with you on a run or a workout. This is because manufacturers typically designed a bunch of different models to fit specific phone makes and sizes. This means you'll end up having to get a new armband when it's time to upgrade to a new device.

That is, unless you get a TuneBand Go. This armband offers universal compatibility, as its rubber hooks are adjustable to fit phones from 5 inches to 6.5 inches in size. It also accommodates cases, and it's actually recommended you use one if you're concerned about the clips making direct contact with your phone's display.

NorthFace Thermoball Etip gloves

Winter is coming, which means it's time to haul out your cozy winter gear — lest you choose to stay indoors until spring. But you really ought to be heading outside and making the most of things, whether that means sledding, snowboarding or skiing, or simply walking through a winter wonderland.

If you want to enjoy the great outdoors — even when the temps are downright frigid — and still stay connected to your phone, you'll want to get a pair of touchscreen conductive gloves that are first and foremost warm and reliable. The North Face makes quality outerwear, and these gloves will keep your hands nice and toasty while still allowing you to use your phone's touchscreen via the conductive fibres in the fingers. The palms are also grippy, so that you don't accidentally drop your phone into a snowbank. Whoops!

These would make a great gift for pretty much anyone with a phone, and are available in styles for both men and women.

GoPro HERO5 Session

Getting active with technology doesn't always have to be about tracking steps or keeping your phone accessible. Sometimes you just want to head out there, strap an action cam on you and show the world how you have fun.

The GoPro HERO5 Session is a portable, rugged little 10MP camera that can shoot still, burst and time-lapse photos, as well as 4K video (also capable of shooting high-speed footage at 90fps in 1080p, and 120fps in 720p). It features voice activation as well as one-touch controls, and can be mounted pretty much anywhere, so you can just tap and go out and record all of your outdoor adventures. Whether you know a cyclist who's talked about wanting to document their daily commutes, or a budding action sports superstar looking record epic footage, the GoPro HERO5 Session is a gift choice that they'll cherish. Do note that they will also need a microSD card.

Jaybird X3 Sport

An ideal pair of workout headphones are going to be wireless, sweatproof, and comfortable while still delivering solid sound quality and adequate battery life.

Jaybird has been in the Bluetooth headphone space since 2007, and their latest pair, the Jaybird X3 Sport earbuds, are an ideal option for the runner or athlete in your life that always seems to be complaining about their headphone situation. The two earpieces are tethered together, with a three-button remote for controlling playback and volume, and each pair come with several silicone and foam tip options, along with fins that help keep them secure in ear no matter how intense your workout gets. The size is small and compact, and yet the batteries are capable of delivering you great sound quality for up to eight hours.

These touchscreen stickers give your gloves a fingerprint, but be careful

9

Don't let convenience trounce security.

I'm all for Canadian entrepreneurship, and the winter is cold and all that. But TAPS, a Kickstarter project from Vancouver, B.C.-based Tony Wu, is probably not the best idea, especially if you take security seriously.

See, instead of asking you to buy a pair of touchscreen gloves, TAPS uses super-strong adhesive on one side to stick to your current winter gloves, pairing capacitive materials and a unique fingerprint sensor on the other side. Ostensibly, you just stick them on the thumb or index finger (or both, if you're feeling sassy) and you're good to go. Because each sticker comes with a unique fingerprint, it can work with the sensors on your Galaxy S7, Pixel, or any phone with a convenient unlocking mechanism.

The problem is that unlike your finger, your winter gloves can be easily stolen, and losing a glove and your phone at the same time is a recipe for insecurity and potential disaster. We'd recommend just using them for their capacitive capabilities, to turn any glove into a touchscreen glove. Even though the company promises that the fingerprint tech is safe, as long as there's this thing in your closet that can be used to unlock your phone, it's just not that safe.

Still, it's a good idea, and at $8 for a pack of four stickers, is considerably cheaper than most touchscreen gloves. And because they're waterproof, hopefully the adhesive will last a long time, even when continually exposed to snow.

TAPS promises to ship before Christmas.

Best Stocking Stuffers Under $25 For Android Fans

1

Fill those stocking with cool stuff, for less!

It's just about that time when folks around the world will be hanging their stockings over the fireplace with care. Just what will end up in those stockings? Yet to be determined.

Here's some quick gift ideas that will make perfect stocking stuffers for anyone on Santa's list.

Google Play Store gift card

Yeah, yeah, we know. Gift cards are pretty lazy as far as gifts go. But everyone can appreciate just how versatile a Google Play gift card is! You can not only spend Google Play cash on awesome Android games and apps, but also get music, movies, TV shows, books, and even magazines.

You can buy a Google Play Store gift card a over 40 different stores including most convenient stores, making them the perfect last-minute gift idea for pretty much anyone on your list.

Find a store near you

Phone cases

As long as you know the type of phone your gift-givee is rocking, gifting a phone case shows that you care — about them not wrecking their expensive smartphone. This is an especially good gift idea if you're buying it for your kids, and you know they'll come asking for help buying a new phone when they drop their phone and shatter the screen. ShopAndroid has great deals on cases for all the most popular phones. Take a look around!

Portable power pack

Everyone could use a little extra boost of battery life throughout the day, so a portable battery pack makes for a perfect stocking stuffer, both for its size and convenience. There's a ton of options out there, but if you're looking for an affordable external battery pack that will still provide ample charge for most devices, this 10400mAh power pack from Aukey will do the trick.

NOTE: This particular power pack is not compatible with Motorola phones.

Touch Screen gloves

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but your phone is buzzing and you want to answer it — but that means taking off your gloves. Or not, if you've got a pair of gloves with conductive threads in the fingertips. Touch screen gloves make a great gift, and the one's we've recommended below are more affordable than other options out there. They aren't the best for those absolutely frigid, windy days, but you probably shouldn't be loitering outside on your phone when the weather is that bad, either.

See at Amazon

Car charger

Another great stocking stuffer option is a car charger, so your loved one can keep their phone topped up when they're on the road. Again there are a number of different options out there for car chargers, and you don't want to end up buying a dud. But we'll recommend this dual-USB charger from Tronsmart. It supports Quick Charge 2.0, comes packaged with two Micro-USB cables, and is guaranteed to fully protect against over-current, overcharging and overheating.

Huawei Fit review: A weak pulse

3

Huawei's latest fitness band leaves a lot to be desired.

The fitness band is over. Jawbone abandoned ship; Nike, too. It's easier — and more profitable — to own the data, to partner with companies like Apple and Fitbit, which actually make money from these things. There is one way to do fitness hardware: undercut everyone, like Lenovo and Xiaomi are doing with their $20 fitness bands, mainly sold in China, in order to saturate the market with something so consumable it can be as easily replaced as a hair band.

SD 5.1 spec will help you identify if your card can handle apps with new 'A1' badge

8

It will soon be easier to identify when a microSD card is best suited for app performance.

The SD Assisciation (SDA), which handles the specification for SD cards of all types, has unveiled its latest spec, SD 5.1, including a new distinction for SD cards that are designed for application use rather than just media storage. The new specification, called "A1" (or App Performance Class 1), shows that a given SD card meets certain performance standards set by the SDA that determine it's good enough to be used as a storage device for apps.

Xiaomi is making a 'global' announcement at CES

Between the impressive Mi Note 2 and the innovative Mi Mix concept phone, an increasing number of people are able to identify the Chinese company's brand and ambition without ever interacting with one of its products.
