If you’ve owned an iPhone for a long time, the Apple Watch has been the ultimate health accessory for your wrist. In addition to being a great fitness tracker, it offers fall detection and advanced heart monitoring tools to help those who aren’t trying to run a marathon. According to Lisa Eadicicco’s review, this model isn’t the biggest upgrade so far, but the bigger screen and slightly improved battery is a big deal for anyone looking to use their fitness tracker for more than exercise.
As long as you have an iPhone and don’t mind the $399 price tag, this is the best you can buy.
Hydro Flask has topped our list of best water bottles, and for good reason. They’re durable, colorful, and their insulated design keeps hot liquids hot and cool liquids cool for hours. These water bottles come in a variety of sizes and colors to suit everyone’s style and needs, making them a great addition to any fitness enthusiast’s gym bag.
I can confirm that the insulation on the bottle and flat cap really works. I put ice water in a Hydro Flask and then left it in a car in 105 degree Arizona heat for four hours. When I got back, it was as cold as I left it, ice cubes and all.
Each bottle comes with an insulated flat screw cap, but depending on which model you buy, you can also choose a sport cap, twist cap or straw cap.

At least where I live, spas are closed most of the year so I couldn’t get a massage to get rid of the persistent knots on my neck. That means I’ve been relying on this massager I’ve owned for over a year now to get some relief.
It has two separate massage heads that are perfect for kneading sore muscles or any tension between the neck, shoulders and even shoulder blades. It’s the perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast in need of a massage, and in my experience, it’s worth every penny.
Fitness trackers are great tools to encourage you to move your body and track key health stats like heart rate. But if you don’t have the budget for an Apple Watch or a Fitbit, you can still get a good tracker.
At around $40, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is a great cheap alternative to the Fitbits and Garmin Vivofits out there. It tracks your steps, sleep, heart rate, up to 11 different exercise types and more to help you reach your fitness goals. The design is sleek, the display is bright and easy to read, and there are a variety of fitness watch faces to choose from. The battery life on this Xiaomi Mi band can last up to 14 days on a single charge; The Apple Watch can’t even come close to that.
