Fitness gadgets

Wireless Headphones/Earphones

Wired headphones can be a bit of a pain when you’re working out. One minute you’re in the zone, the next you’re tangled up, watching your mobile hurtling across the gym (again).

With wireless headphones, you can stick them on and feel assured that nothing will come between you and your All-Out 80s playlist.

Here are a few of the best January deals for wireless earphones and headphones:

Fitness Trackers

Fitness trackers have come a long way. These days, they cover everything - from your workouts, vital statistics, stress and VO2 levels, to quality of rest, distances travelled and the likelihood of encountering stray panthers. Okay, maybe not that last one.

While Fitbit is arguably top of the pile, there’s a range of brands putting out quality products with different functions and features, so you’re sure to find something that suits you if you shop around.

Here are a few of the best deals available for highly-rated fitness trackers:

  • Couch to 5K (Android & iOS) – perfect for building up your fitness levels fast
