We all like to over-indulge over the festive period – we heard calls of ‘ahh, well it IS Christmas!’ almost daily here at QVC Towers as we stuffed our faces with chocolate before 10am! But why not? The Christmas season is one to enjoy with friends and family and festive feasting is a huge part of that. But now a fresh new year has begun, this is when we typically look to give our health and fitness regimes a bit of an overhaul. New diet? New workout gear? Joined a gym? Yep, we’re all over it!
So, with that in mind, why not upgrade your gadgets too? With everything from the latest headphones, fitness trackers and more, here’s a selection that’ll inspire you to get moving this new year…
Whether you’re out running or working out in the gym, plugging into your favourite playlists or podcasts really helps to motivate and get you in the right frame of mind for exercise. So, finding the right earphones that work well for you is a must. We love these Bose SoundSport in-ear headphones that are not only durable with a sweat and weather-resistant design, but come with a case and deliver the crisp, clear sound you’d expect from Bose. The special StayHear tips keep them comfortably in place too, so you know they’ll survive even the most strenuous of workouts!
If you’re after some wireless ones, these Trekz Titanium Wireless Bone Conduction headphones feature clever Bone Conduction technology that delivers sound via the cheekbones, plus they have durable titanium frames and dual noise canceling mics which reduce sound leakage.
Earphones of course aren’t always the preferred choice. We also really love these Bose Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones. They’re so comfortable and easy to wear and feature the latest in noise reduction technology. Plus, they offer superb quality sound from Bose.
Health and fitness at home
If you’re looking to improve your fitness this year, this doesn’t always mean having to join a gym or go out running, you can simply enjoy exercise and healthy eating in the comfort of your own home too. Whether you’re using the latest exercise apps or searching online for tasty new recipes, having a helping hand like the Amazon Echo Dot speaker can make all the difference. Just ask virtual assistant Alexa to search for whatever you need and you’ll be on your way to a new health and fitness regime in no time at all!
Track your goals on the go
Fitness trackers and smartwatches are becoming so popular these days, with many of us using them to count steps and monitor sleep, heart rate and calories too. We love this Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch which offers everything you need in one! It’s a watch combined with smartphone notifications, health and fitness trackers and built-in Alexa too. It has over 15 Exercise Modes including Run, Bike and Weights, lets you monitor your heart rate, sleep quality and so much more.
Take a look at the Fitbit Versa 2 Special Edition for a bit extra. It has all the features of the original Versa 2 but with a bigger, brighter screen and a new faster processor. It also includes a free three month trial of Fitbit Premium, a membership service that provides personal fitness guidance and coaching. Both of these Fitbits are so stylish and easy to wear too, with customisable clock faces and colourful interchangeable straps.
