It’s a new year, which probably means you’ve set some new fitness goals. Perhaps you’re getting into exercising regularly for the first time. Maybe you’ve been going to the gym for a year now and you want to ramp things up. You may also be changing focus and trying to build muscle, learn stretches through yoga, or work harder on cardio.
Regardless, these five fitness devices will help you meet your every fitness goal in 2018 and beyond.
1. Skagen Hagen Connected Leather Hybrid Smartwatch
On the surface, the Hagen smartwatch from watch and wallet designer Skagen just looks like a simple leather wristwatch, albeit an upscale one. In actuality, it’s a stylish fitness tracker.
With music control, a phone finder, sleep tracking, and activity tracking, this hybrid watch does it all. It syncs up to your iPhone or Android phone via an app so you can transfer your fitness data from one device to another.
2. Jaybird Run Wireless Sport Headphones
Don’t you hate it when you’re in the middle of a great sweat sesh and your headphone cords get tangled in the elliptical machine? With the Jaybird Run headphones, that issue is no more.
Jaybird calls these “true wireless sport headphones,” and they live up to that name. The Jaybird app lets you filter calls and play music from your phone. These headphones are also water-resistant and sweat proof so they won’t slip. You can even switch out the fins and tips for an ideal fit.
3. Mi Band 2
The follow-up to the beloved Mi Band, the Mi Band 2 picks up where the first one left off. The pedometer algorithm has been retooled, and Mi also gave the original design an overhaul. With touchscreen controls and an OLED display, you won’t want to leave home without it.
With the app cued up and the device on your body, you’re ready to use the PowerDot, an electric muscle stimulator. Favored by Runner’s World, Men’s Fitness, and GQ, the PowerDot lets you toggle abs, pecs, arms, thighs, and more for an easier workout.
5. Misfit Ray
Customizable and colorful, the Misfit Ray is more than just another fitness tracker. It has a four-month battery, multicolor LED screen, Internet of Everything connectivity (so it can sync with other smart devices at home), and sleep tracking. Oh, and it can go in the pool, too.
