|The fitness gadgets |
of your 2014 gym kit
Throughout the next month I'll be posting a detailed review of each product so be sure to bookmark BTBS or follow on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest for the latest updates from the blog.
MisFit Shine, £99.95. Available from John Lewis
Jabra Sport Wireless+ - £79.99, Available from Amazon.co.uk
These earphones clip around your ears comfortably and wirelessly connect to your iPhone/iPod for music on the go via Bluetooth. There's controls on the right ear for volume, play/pause, skip, battery level check and even FM radio if you don't want to take your iPhone/iPod out with you. The neck cable can be adjusted with a small clip to your perfect size and the earphones come with a variety of different 'eargels' to customise the fit for maximum comfort. The sound quality is far superior to standard Apple earphones and you can even take calls on the go - if you're not out of breath!
Scosche RHYTHM - £99, Available from Apple Stores
Kids Monitor - £29.99 / Adults monitor - £39.99 from John Lewis
If your New Years Resolution is for the whole family to get fit, then this could be the gadget for you. Parents have their own activity tracker, the Unity, along with an app that allows them to keep track of their own activity levels as well as their children's, which is measured by a colourful PowerKey. Kids are motivated to get more exercise as their PowerKey tracker allows them to unlock games and 'power ups' in a selection of Apple games/apps.
