Fitness Trackers & Smart Watches
If you’re looking for a fitness tracker that does it all, the Apple Watch Series 5 is the perfect candidate. It monitors your heartrate, tracks your steps, and motivates you to move, stand and exercise throughout the day. You can also complete daily or monthly fitness challenges, compete with your friends, and win awards for meeting your goals.
The Apple Watch Series 5 is available with built-in Verizon cellular service, so you can leave your phone at home or in the car while you’re on a run or at the gym. Plus, you can stream your favorite workout playlists right through the watch.
For ultimate comfort and style, you can customize your Apple Watch with a protective case and fitness-friendly wristband, too.
The Galaxy Watch is another helpful smartwatch that doubles as a fitness tracker. It has the natural feeling of an analog watch, but the face is totally customizable. It also has cellular capabilities and allows you to stream your favorite music on-the-go.
In a way, the Galaxy Watch can act as your own personal trainer. You can closely monitor your heart rate, track your steps and calories, and measure up to six activities at a time when you’re exercising. It also tracks your sleep quality and monitors your stress levels. The battery can last days on a single charge, so it won’t miss a step, heartbeat, or night’s sleep.
Want the whole family to participate? The Verizon GizmoWatch is a fun, kid-friendly smartwatch designed to keep your child safe and healthy. They can track their steps, set on-screen notifications, and program up to ten trusted contacts who they can text or call, all from their wrist.
Plus, the GPS locator helps you keep an eye on them without sacrificing their independence.
If you’re looking to start a new diet or just want to keep track of your meals, MyFitnessPal is a great app for tracking your food and exercise. Their huge food database helps you quickly and easily find all of your favorite foods and their nutritional value, including carbs, protein, sugar, and more. Plus, you can track how much water you’ve had each day, what exercises you’ve completed, and record your weight.
Not only does this app act as a fitness diary, but it also acts as a support system. You can add friends and connect with the MyFitnessPal community, sharing your goals, tips and successes with each other. It’s a great way to stay motivated and keep your goals on track.
The Nike Training Club app is like having a personal trainer at your fingertips. You can look through a library of workouts for all fitness levels and choose the ones that work best for you. You can even get workout recommendations and tips from some of your favorite athletes, like Isaiah Thomas and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Looking for something more fun to get you moving? Pokemon Go is an interactive game that requires you to play on-the-go. Catch Pokemon along the walking trail, hatch eggs by walking certain distances, complete quests and more! It’s the perfect solution for both the gamer and the athlete in you.
Zombies, Run! is another fun, interactive game that will keep you active. You have to use headphones to get the full experience – when you hear the zombies getting closer, you have to run faster to get away. As you run, you’ll collect supplies like medicine, batteries, and food that can be used to help other survivors in the game.
This game is a unique way to make your workouts more fun and keep you motivated along the way.
It’s easy to get tangled up in headphone cords while you’re working out, but Apple AirPods are the perfect solution to that problem. These wireless, cordless earbuds are automatically on, always connected, and work like magic. You can answer calls, adjust the volume, change songs, and ask Siri for help without removing them from your ears or touching your device. Plus, they come in a wireless charging case, so they’ll always be powered up and ready to go with you anywhere.
Move free with earbuds that keep up with you, and stay connected without staying tethered to wires. Whether you are tuning into an Android or an iPhone device, the JBL TUNE 220TWS earbuds have you covered with true wireless capability.
