Fitness Gadgets: Tech Gifts to Spoil Your Runner

Fitness Gadgets: Tech Gifts to Spoil Your Runner

When it comes to fitness gadgets and gizmos for running, I admit to being a sucker for them all.

I want to test each little click, clack and whiz to find out IF it really produces results.

From a minimalist in all other areas of my life this is absolutely amusing to my husband.

But at a great benefit to you! It means that I quickly dump the losers and keep only the things that work to share with you, saving you time and money! Because as my IG followers know, I’m too honest for my own good sometimes, but at least I know I’m never going to feel bad if you buy something I recommend.

Running Gadgets

Here are some top fitness gadgets and how they work to give you some ideas for creative gifts or maybe just to treat yourself. Because let’s be honest…couldn’t we all use a little pick me up lately!

1.InvisaWear Safety Bracelet ($149)
It looks like a beautiful bracelet (or you can get a necklace), but with a quick push of a button you’re notifying people that you’re in trouble and need help.

I like the band style designed for fitness. It’s super soft, easily goes on the wrist and I’d wear it all the time. In testing it, the bracelet never bothered me on a run and I truly liked the comfort of knowing it was right there.

  • Alarm can be removed to wash the bracelet.
  • Band comes in multiple sizes to find what fits you.
  • Hitting the button twice will send a text to up to 5 people you have chosen, along with your GPS location
  • No charge needed, this battery will last at least a year

2.Jaybird Vista Wireless Earbuds – ($170)
I’ve done an entire post showcasing the different wireless headphone options for running, but if I had to pick one right now it would be the Jaybird Vista Wireless earbuds. These are going to provide a snug fit and when in the gym doing that strength workout to block out the extra noise and go the distance for your runs.

  • Can run with just one earbud and still get great sound
  • Waterproof and very sweatproof (I can vouch for that), but they still don’t recommend them for swimming
  • FANTASTIC battery life. I forget to charge them frequently and can still go for a 4 hour trail run.
  • Portable charging case will give you even more life and is the reason I can forget to actually plug them in.

3. Molecule Mattress Topper
I’m a little fanatical about sleep. The data proves it is our  number one recovery tool and let’s be honest we’re all just a little nicer with enough of it.

I am  HOT sleeper and as a runner things just hurt some days! So I decided a mattress topper was the first test our new home to help improve my sleep.
