Fitbit Charge 2

 

Fitbit is well known in the activity tracking scene. The Charge 2 is one of Fitbit’s latest activity trackers. It includes PurePulse continuous heart-rate monitoring. Auto-exercise monitoring (SmartTrack technology) is one my favorite features on Fitbits, which I feel works better when doing cardio (treadmill or elliptical). You can stay in touch with notifications for texts and calls. It of course tracks basic things like distance traveled, steps, calories burned, and stairs climbed. Fitbit Charge 2 It is available in 4 colors (blue, black, plum, and teal).

Jaybird Freedom Wireless Headphones

 

Jaybird has great sounding headphones. The Freedom Wireless are different in that they use a clip-on charger to charge the headphones. You can charge the charger separately, so you have more juice when on-the-go. The all metal housing build of the earbuds helps out with removing distortion. My favorite thing about using the Freedom Wireless headphones is that you can control sound settings by using the MySound app, and the setting stay that way even after you exit the app.
