Healthy Technology Gift Guide for the Fitness Fans and Tech Gurus Lev Dolgachov/PhotoSpin

Heading into the New Year is the perfect time to put technology to work to achieve fitness goals. Check out these healthy technology gift ideas for the fitness fan or tech guru on your shopping list.

Portable speakers

Your health fan will never have an excuse not to work out alone or in a group, with battery-powered speakers that connect by Bluetooth to a phone or MP3 player. Great for use outdoors, a hotel room or anywhere that earbuds just don’t get it done.

Try the weather-resistant Puma Soundchuck speaker at apple.com ($130) or the Brookstone Mobile Mini Speaker from brookstone.com ($35)

For hikers, try the Eton Sound System that includes carabiner-ready loops and a solar panel at amazon.com ($70)

Fitness tracker

Fitness trackers can record movement statistics on the go and can connect to your phone for full-range apps to help you keep up with your New Year’s fitness plans. Try the Fitbit at fitbit.com ($130) and add a hinged bracelet cover to make your Fitbit look like a piece of designer jewelry at fitbit.com/toryburch ($195)

Or try the Polar M400 that comes complete with GPS tracking so your buddy will never get lost on a run at shoppolar.com ($200)

Fitness watch

Don’t stop at tracking the time. High-tech watches can also track a variety of stats including miles, pace, strides and calories burned for runners, or real-time info for cyclers or swimmers.
