5 fitness gadgets for an active lifestyle

New year, new you, right? Time to live up to your goal of an active lifestyle. If you want to do so, there are a variety of gadgets to help you with that. Get walking, running, swimming, or cycling with a smartwatch or fitness tracker. These wearables can also help with a variety of other tasks, such as meditation to help you mentally feel better. In addition, I'm sure everyone appreciates having some music to liven up the workout or evening jog. So why not get a good pair of wireless headphones or even a portable Bluetooth speaker? Here are five fitness gadgets to help you achieve your goals.

Google Pixel Watch 2

Google's second Pixel smartwatch retains the design of its predecessor, but fixes the flaws. For example, battery life is improved, with up to 24 hours of uptime with Alway-on display. It's compact, and available in only one size (41mm). There's also a rotating crown with haptic feedback, and a bright 1000-nit AMOLED screen. More importantly, it comes with Google apps like Maps and Wallet, as well as third-party apps like WhatsApp.

Don't really care about navigating or paying for public transport with your smartwatch? Perhaps a fitness tracker like the Xiaomi Smart Band 8 is a better fit. It's a lot more affordable at under S$50, and battery life is fantastic (over two weeks without Always-on display) compared with most smartwatches. While it doesn't have integrated GPS, the Xiaomi does offer most essential health and fitness tracking features.

Garmin Venu 3S

Garmin's Venu series is targeted at mainstream users, competes with smartwatches from Apple and Samsung. It has a bright, vibrant AMOLED screen, and its own built-in GPS and internal storage (for music). But the big new feature here is sleep tracking, with the Venu 3S being one of the few wearables that can track and record naps, too. A Sleep Coach feature can help you improve your sleep quality.

With a secure fit, and IP68 water/dust resistance, the Jabra Elite 8 Active is great for those with an active lifestyle. Besides being more rugged than the average wireless earbuds, the Elite 8 Active also offers good sound for its price. Noise cancellation is very decent, and battery life is great at around eight hours (with ANC). Jabra's Sound+ app lets you customise everything from the physical buttons to the sound profile.

With a classy design that also happens to be IP67 rated, and a surprisingly big, and punchy sound, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound A1 2nd Gen is still one of the best portable speakers you can buy now — despite being launched back in 2020. Battery life is good, too, with this speaker lasting up to 18 hours (and more if you aren't blasting music during your jog).
