Looking to give your next workout an inside edge? How about giving your whole life a new fitness edge? Fitness watches and activity trackers from Fitbit are designed to keep track of every step you take, your heartrate, and even things like your calorie intake and sleep quality. Some models like the Fitbit Charge 2, the Blaze and the new Ionic have cellular notifications too, along with GPS technology built in.

Get a smartwatch that looks as good in the gym as it does in the office like the Apple Watch Series 3 or Series 1. Both feature a modern design that’s stylish enough for every outfit as well as sporting pretty hefty processing power. The Apple Watch not only calculates heartrate, receives notifications from your phone, and tracks your distance via built-in GPS, but also runs a whole lot of apps, too. The Series 3 Apple Watch also comes in a cellular-enabled version as well, meaning you can leave your phone at home and still receive calls and more. 

The best type of wearable technology device for you really depends on the type of fitness activities you do most. Any model of Fitbit is a great option for all-around fitness enthusiasts who like to go from the yoga studio, out to the running track, and over to the weight rack in one week. If you’re a dedicated long-distance runner who’s into trail running, fitness trackers from brands like Polar, Garmin, and TomTom may provide the precise distance and elevation tracking you require.

Get your heart pumping faster when you take your music with you. Find the right style of athletic or casual headphones from Beats, JBL or Skullcandy for your next workout and take the tunes that get you moving with you. Wireless and in-ear headphones are perfect for any kind of workout because they won’t fall out of place easily and are comfortable enough that you forget they’re there. Outdoor speakers and wireless speakers are great if you’re training in the park, going for a hike or just hanging around outside.

Never miss a second of the action with an action camera like the latest releases from GoPro, TomTom and 360fly. Designed to withstand whatever you can throw at them and follow you on every extreme adventure, these cameras shoot up to 4k video and come in up to 12 MP when in camera mode. If you’re surfing, snorkeling or scuba diving, an action camera is a great companion because many models are waterproof up to at least 30 feet. Capture the big moments of your next vacation or outdoor adventure with ease thanks to new instant-sharing features and wireless controls. Want something that captures a new perspective?
