Gear is never a necessity to get your exercise on, but it certainly can be fun to use and help you stay motivated!
With Christmas right around the corner, if you still have shopping to do for people you care about, these items are great last-minute ideas.
Whether you need to shop for an outdoor type, an athlete, or your sassy teen, both of these items are great all around. Perfect for the awesome guy or gal in your life.
Without further ado, here are two items we love to use to stay motivated that just happen to rock as Christmas gifts!
AfterShokz Titanium Open Ear Bone Conduction Headphones
AfterShokz Trek Titanium Bone Conduction Wireless Headphones are great for your outdoor enthusiast, athlete, or family rocker.
What we love- AfterShokz headphones will not cause hearing loss regardless of how loudly you play them. They use the bones in your ear to produce sound, thereby preventing hearing loss. We also love that they do not go inside your ear, they sit right outside of it instead. This helps you to hear background noise and what’s going on around you, which is a must for an outdoor recreator to be safe.
The headphones come with a small bag to keep them in, and earplugs (to intensify the sound, which isn’t really needed in my opinion, but a nice idea for home use).
What we don’t love– Hardcore use causes the arm of the ear to stretch and break after about six months of serious use. While it sucks they break like that, AfterShokz will send you a replacement immediately with no additional out of pocket cost, and no questions asked.
I wouldn’t have mentioned it if it happened just once, but it happened to three out of four headphones so I felt it should be mentioned. Again, Aftershokz is incredible about replacing them.
As a result, we feel that it is a small price to pay for headphones that won’t cause hearing loss, and allows you to hear the ambient sound around you.
Totally worth it in our opinion.
Garmin Multi-Sport Watch
I love these watches! If you are the type of person who loves to see the metrics of your activity, these things rock!
Regardless if you want to jog, swim, or cycle, this watch will keep track of it all for you. It also measures your heart rate and provides VO2 information. Easily keep track of your PR’s, distance, speed, and more.
What we love- We love to use these watches and upload our data to Strava (a social network app for active people) and compare our metric to other athletes. Love the multi-sport function and the GPS function (which we use to stay safe, providing a beacon of our whereabouts during an activity so we can be found in case of an emergency).
What we don’t love- Overall, you can’t go wrong with Garmin as a product and company. 100% guaranteed satisfaction policy and we have never had serious issues with our Garmin watches and bike computers.
Either gadget is sure to please! If you do happen to get the Garmin, sign up for STRAVA, a social media app for athletic people, and look for TRITOFLY and follow us!
