Giving a fitness-related gift can sometimes be tricky–you don’t want the recipient to think you’re trying to… hint at something, but wait until you see what it can do! The Withings WS-50 is far more advanced than your standard scale: besides tracking your weight, it can also track your body fat and BMI. And you can even check your heart rate by just stepping on the scale without any need for wires or additional sensors. The WS-50 can even track the air quality of your room. All information can be viewed on a web interface or the free iOS and Android apps.
The world’s first cycling helmet that continuously measures your heart-rate without using a chest strap. SMART uses electro-optical technology to continuously measure your heart-rate. The optical sensor is placed on the helmet’s front, gently touching your forehead. The sensor samples the blood pulse in a high frequency and transmits a raw signal to the processing unit, which is placed in the helmet back.
For the most accurate workout tracking and the best feedback, you really need to invest in a chest strap that can measure your heart rate accurately. Wahoo TICKR X is one of the best options we’ve seen in a while, with integrated memory, cadence measurement, a treadmill mode and compatibility with a wide range of third-party apps as well Wahoo RunFit. More affordable TICKR models are available if you want to save some cash during your Christmas present buying spree.
