Make Spirits Bright for the Fitness Enthusiast with Mobile Tech Gifts

By Melanie Ortel on December 23, 2013

Whether you’re looking for something special for yourself, the exercise enthusiast in your life, or someone still trying to fulfill last year’s New Year’s resolutions, mobile tech fitness accessories from the Verizon Wireless Get Fit zone can ramp up the workouts of anyone on your shopping list this holiday season.

Gift a Fitbit and power any workout with a Bluetooth-enabled device that offers real-time updates on steps walked, distance covered and calories burned. For example, surprise mom with a Fitbit Zip or Fitbit One wireless activity tracker to help her stay motivated to reach her fitness goals, while she’s juggling work, errands and the family “to do” list.

Wrap up the water-resistant, stylish Fitbit Flex wristband or the UP by Jawbone for the student in your life. It’s a great choice for gym goers who want to track and analyze their fitness goals, diet, energy and sleep patterns. To help them keep a charge going during workouts, toss in a Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Mini if they’re accessing apps and music on their phones or tablets. And, a Belkin Armband is an ideal stocking stuffer so they can listen to playlists with ease while they go for a run.

For the person in your life who is up on the latest in health monitoring, check out the Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale, which monitors weight, BMI and other health information. They can also share their information on Facebook and other fitness websites as they see fit.

No doubt music boosts motivation, but nothing’s more frustrating during a run than earphones flopping around. For the runner on your list, pick from several top performers this year, including the lightweight LG Tone+ Bluetooth Stereo Headset, Jabra Sport Wireless+ or Yurbuds Inspire, all of which deliver exceptional sound clarity and stay put during rigorous activity.

Cyclists will enjoy the LifeProof Bike Mount, which secures an iPhone to a bike’s handlebars so they can track their route, listen to music or even film their rides.

The Verizon Wireless “’Tis the Season for Tech Gifts series provides holiday gift suggestions for everyone on your list this year.
