Christmas gift ideas for your fitness freak friends
Christmas in Australia means hot weather and lots of it. Summer is always a good time to kick off those fitness goals, so why not give the gift of encouragement this year?
Here's a wide selection of great fitness-rated gadgets for friends, family, or even yourself.
Sony Walkman NWZ-WS613
Just in case you didn't know, the Walkman brand is alive and kicking, and the WS613 is just one of the latest products to proudly bear the name.
Lightweight, waterproof and with both on-board storage and Bluetooth, the AU$199 device is set off by the 'ring remote' -- a clever gadget you wear on your index finger to control the unit with your thumb.
Jawbone's got a brand new trick. The new look Move takes the product back to a pedometer-style form factor, while still packing in all the functions you'd expect from the Up24.
The Move even comes with a wrist mount for sleeping (or if you just prefer wearing it that way). It's got a lithium battery, so there's no need to worry about fortnightly charging sessions. All that for just AU$69 makes it a 'my first fitness tracker' for your family.
It'll be joined by the Up3, which is for the far more fanatical fitness freak, but it sadly won't be available pre-Christmas.
