Tinké Fitness Tracker
Get all your exercise-centric vitals — heart rate, respiratory rate and blood oxygen saturation — with this tracker that shows results with a simple touch.
Withings Aura Sleep Monitor
Quality sleep improves your overall health, not to mention the energy it gives you to exercise. This under-the-mattress sleep sensor and bedside light monitors your sleep cycles and gently wakes you at the optimal time so you feel refreshed.
Fitbit Aria Scale
This scale talks to your fitness tracker and phone, so you receive celebratory messages as you reach your fitness goals and a big-picture look at your progress over time. Stepping on the scale feels great for a change.
Jaybird Bluetooth Earphones
Boasting sweat-repellant materials, these wireless earbuds are made to fit over your ears so their cord doesn't touch your neck, and wires don’t interrupt your workout. Jog unencumbered.
LeapFrog Fitness Band for Kids
Inspire kids to get moving with this clever app, which makes exercise fun and encourages healthy habits with a customizable fitness pet pal.
Xbox Fitness Workout at Home
Bring a celebrity trainer home — Shaun T of Insanity, Tony Horton of P90X, Jillian Michaels and Tracy Anderson — with a video fitness game that can get you into shape with personalized feedback. They respond to your form, power and pulse rate so you get the best results.
Misfit Shine Fitness Tracker Watch
There are other less-than-attractive fitness trackers you can wear on your wrist, but here's one that's stylish and versatile. In the luminous, anodized aluminum color of your choice, the Misfit Shine disc monitors your steps, calories and sleep, while also working as a watch. You can also wear it as a necklace, pin or bracelet.
WiFi-Connected Spin Bike
If the spin class schedule at your gym doesn't work with your schedule, try the Wi-Fi-connected Peloton spin bike that streams live spin classes directly from New York City to your machine. You'll have a front-row seat facing the instructor, complete with video chat.
