Monster iSport headphones


We’ve been testing these headphones for a couple of weeks and they’re the best we’ve found for staying put – especially when the going gets sweaty! The patented SportClip system is water and sweat resistant plus you get a choice of 3 in-ear buds for the best possible comfort. They also have great sound isolation, meaning you won’t be distracted by noises around you – so perfect for a busy gym.

Garmin vivosmart HR Sports Activity Tracker Watch With Wrist Heart Rate Monitor, Regular, Blue


Activity trackers are big business, we like this one from sports tech brand Garmin. The vivosmart HR Activity Tracker calculates distance, calories burnt, steps and your all-round levels of physical activity. Key information is always on show, even in sunlight – plus it looks pretty sleek too.
Cost: £119.99

Noke Bluetooth Padlock


Noke is the world’s first Bluetooth padlock – you unlock it with your smartphone, eliminating the hassle and frustration of lost keys (we’ve all been there!). We’ve not tested it it ourselves, but if it works as well as it says it should be awesome! It’s not cheap, but it is cool, so if you’re stuck for something for the person who has everything then this could be the answer.
