Doing some last minute Christmas shopping for a fitness-crazed loved one? Whether you need some simple stocking fillers or are still looking for that main piece to put under the tree the gifts on this Christmas gift guide are sure to please any sporty n3rd!
This year was touted as the wear wearable tech would burst onto the mainstream market. Smartwatches and the like still haven’t really taken off like they did when they were first unveiled and a lot of consumers seem to be questioning the point of some pieces of wearable tech, this mistake should not be made with the Nike+ Fuelband however.
The Fuelband is a brilliant little piece of kit that offers a stylish and effective way to track workout regimes and sporting activities. Once the Fuelband has been set-up and is placed on your wrist it tracks the movements of your entire body and through a smartphone or tablet breaks down your day and shows a bunch of helpful information.
Nike’s Fuelband turns activities into + points, which are awarded depending on the type of workout and level of intensity carried out during the workout. This is a decent way to challenge yourself and the fitness band itself post challenges and goals to try and push you to workout.
These aspects plus all the basics such as information on calories burnt and length of workout make the high price of £129 somewhat more reasonable.
For a slightly cheaper alternative, whilst conceding some features and functionality the Fitbit Flex should also be considered, available for £90
