For your own personal workout planner: Fitbit Versa Smartwatch with Heart Rate Monitor
If you need the gadget to keep an eye on how many calories you’ve burned, how many steps you’ve taken, as well as your heart rate and sleeping patterns, look no further than the Fitbit Versa Smartwatch. To view your workouts on-the-go, all you need to do is look down at your Versa’s screen. You can also sync it to your smartphone for notifications, so you’re not constantly picking up your phone and getting distracted mid-workout. (Don’t be that person).
Did you know you can also use your Fitbit to track your sleeping patterns and get helpful insights to help yourself sleep better and recover faster from your workouts? Try it next time!
For intense cardio workouts: Fitbit Charge 3 Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor
The waterproof Fitbit Charge 3 is your best friend when it comes to cardio workouts. Not only is it waterproof to 50 metres, it tracks your heart rate 24/7, allowing you to set goals and see your progress in real time. No matter your form of cardio, it will provide insight into your health — and with 15 exercise modes, it will provide helpful tips on how to improve.
For those who need help with monitoring their diet while travelling, you can actually change the country of your food database to ensure you still have access to the correct stats wherever you are.
Nobody likes to be tied down to their mobile device when they’re in the gym. The Jabra Elite Active Wireless Headphones provide optimum clarity for phone calls using active noise-cancelling technology and also boasts an adjustable equalizer so you can customize your favourite beats so they’re always pushing you towards maximum gains.
Next time, use your Jabra along with the mobile app to customize your EQ settings — so your presets will stay consistent no matter what device your headphones are paired with.
For keeping you motivated during your workout: JayBird Tarah In-Ear Sound Isolating Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Don’t let distractions hold you back on your fitness goals this year — with the JayBird mobile app you can manage calls and control music with the touch of a button.

For the moment of truth: Nokia Body Cardio Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Smart Scale & Body Analyzer
We need to remember that weight is just a number — and the Nokia Body Cardio smart scale will help with that, giving you a full picture of your health (such as your body fat percentage and information about your body composition) every time you step on it.
You can seamlessly track your information in the Nokia Health Mate mobile app, so you can keep track of your progress anytime, anywhere.
For the perfect morning meal-prep: Ninja Professional 2.1L 1100-Watt Stand Blender with Nutri Ninja Cups
Start your day right by whipping up a protein smoothie — made simple with the Ninja Professional blender. It also comes with a grab n’ go cup, making it perfect for bringing your drinks with you to fuel up.
Here’s another hot tip: you don’t have to stick to just smoothies, either. Use your blender to meal prep a variety of other recipes, such as healthy pumpkin soup.
