7 Pieces of High-Tech Fitness Gear You Need For Your Next Workout
With the global home fitness equipment market seeing a major boost across 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, many are looking to invest in the best fitness gear for their workouts.
Having jumped from $6.76 billion in 2019 to $9.49 billion in 2020, many brands of online workout gear have seen a leap, especially due to restrictions at gyms and lockdowns.
Here's a list of 7 top items of high-tech fitness gear to consider investing in for your own workout...
FITBIT Charge 4
The most advanced of the Fitbit fitness trackers, the Charge 4 offers functions that tie in with Spotify, provide a GPS service, and allow Fitbit Pay.
This makes it the ideal gadget for those who workout outside - such as cyclists and runners looking to keep track of mileage, listen to tunes, and who want to be able to stop and buy a bottle of water while out.
It's waterproof, too, for those running and cycling in the rain, but also for swimmers who want to track their progress in the pool.
The light design is ideal for all these activities, and the Charge 4 features the Active Zone system. This new addition automatically detects and rewards users with credit if they remain in their peak performance zones.
This is an excellent at-home workout tool if you have limited space.
Ideal for those looking to do strength training with weights, it cuts out the need to hit the gym by providing various weight options in one piece of equipment.
The Jaxjox KettlebellConnect is one of the best Bluetooth accessories. It uses Bluetooth to gain or drop weight magnetically. It is essentially an entire set of kettlebells rolled into one.
LARQ Water Bottle
Now they've thought of everything: a self-cleaning water bottle!
This is great as a piece of fitness gear but also an investment for general life.
This gadget uses UV-C LED light to clean and purify water. This eradicates 99.9% of E coli from the water and blasts viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants. It's also made from ultralight stainless steel, so it isn't too cumbersome.
Ideal in the midst of a pandemic!
Whoop Strap 3.0
Pro athletes are big ambassadors of the Whoop Strap. It tracks fitness, delivering excellent training metrics, all the while assisting you with recovery methods too.
It even reminds you to get that all-important sleep!
It comes with a paid subscription package as well and will even advise you whether or not you should be training or if you should take some time off.
The Whoop Strap is smart and chic; the strap collects your physiological data all day, every day, so its metrics are on point and very specific to your body.
It is light, water-resistant, and has an improved 5-day battery life and BLE connect feature. There is also an updated Strain Coach function.
The analytics it calculates can send the metrics to you via mobile apps or to your desktop, and you can communicate with other Whoop users in the community. It lets you connect with your own personalized groups - such as family and friends - or with others on the network who are on their own fitness journey. You can even set challenges and win rewards.
Lucyd Lyte 2.0 Bluetooth Glasses
An innovative addition to the Bluetooth accessories market, the Lucyd Lyte speaker sunglasses merge style with practicality.
These are ideal for sunny outdoor workouts - or even bright gyms. They're great for games of tennis or golf outside, as well as running and biking.
These bluetooth sunglasses have a high-tech audio feature built into their frames and, like other listening accessories, connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone.
What's more, they have inbuilt bone conduction speakers. These provide excellent audio for phone calls or listening to music and provides you with sound via the natural feel of wearing a pair of glasses or shades.
These smart glasses easily blast competing brands out of the water with improved sound and touch controls, all at a price that matches standard prescription glasses.
They come with a full range of custom lens options, including Readers and Progressive Prescriptions. And they're affordable, with significant discounts compared to most eye-wear retailers.
They've featured on many a Must-Have gift guide recently too.
