#7 VERY GIFTED: GIFT IDEAS

Gift ideas for:
*the Athletes
*the Runner/Walker
*the Cyclist
*the Swimmer

jawbone UP24
Do you know the one piece of jewelry that I wear every single day? My Jawbone UP, a wearable fitness tracker that syncs with my iPad. I only take it off when I shower or when it needs to be replaced. As I’ve mentioned before I love my UP. It calculates my daily mileage, steps, food, water consumption, sleep. It looks stylish with some fun color options, and the app is a really good workout motivator. I definitely recommend the Jawbone UP for any runner or walker in your family. The one down side with the UP is it’s propensity to fizzle out, fortunately they have a warranty that covers up to a year after purchase.

But the UP isn’t the only fitness tracker on the market!
fitbit
The Fitbit is probably the most popular of the wearable sports tech. I don’t have a first hand experience with it, but my mom does. Hers has never needed replacing (unlike my Jawbone UP ahem… 3 times). The new one acts like the UP but has a built in heart rate monitor, which is a good tool to use to gauge intensity of a workout. Oh! And it has a watch function, which explains why this puppy looks so much like a watch. And it includes a heart rate monitor, which is important for cyclists. It’s slightly pricier than the UP, but I think you get significantly more for your dollar. I just wish the app was as great as the UP app.

pebble
The Pebble is one of the few waterproof fitness trackers, which makes it best for any swimmers out there. There’s even a beta swim app called Swimio for Pebble users. Price wise it falls in at the lower end of the wearable tech cost range. Anybody have a pebble and love it? I’d like to know how it’s received.

The daily disclaimer: I would be remiss if I didn’t offer the link to my online store… I write these posts for my love of jewelry and gift giving, there’s no sponsors here but ME for MYSELF 😀

    1. It is so cool. I was thinking about you and your challenge because wearing the device all the time tracks all the miles traveled. If you wore one with your 100 miles goal, would you count your general walking around miles towards your 100 miles goal? Or just the workout miles?
