What The Tech : Health & Fitness Gifts

CHARLOTTE N.C. – If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list this year, think of their health.
People with an affinity of getting or staying in shape can always use some tech gadgets to keep
them motivated or help them reach their fitness goals. Here are a few tech gadgets that are
perfect to throw in a gym bag.

First is the Tapplock. A padlock for the gym locker that needs no combination or key, it uses your fingerprint. A biometric sensor is on the face of the lock, when you place your finger on it, it unlocks. You can also unlock it from a smartphone app.

Bose earbuds are top-of-the-line, comfortable, and cancel any noise from treadmills and plates clanging together.

Early bird runners can jog safely with a She’s Birdie personal alarm. Small enough to carry or
attach to clothing, if they feel unsafe just pull a tab and a loud noise and flashing lights chase
away any threats.

Or, gift them an annual subscription to a fitness app or Apple Fitness. Strava is best for runners,
My Fitness Pal tracks workouts and calories, and for weight training, my choice is “Strong”.

All are under $100 a year. And those apps connect with Apple Health and Google Fit. You’ll find them and many other fitness and health apps in the app stores.
