Best fitness gadgets for walking, running and cycling

Tony Ibrahim | May 14, 2014
A new wave of devices designed to feed information on our wellbeing are hitting shop shelves. The collated information is teaching us more about how we eat, sleep, exercise and more. Some simply provide the little push we need to get off the couch and onto the treadmill, but that's enough for many.

TomTom was among the first to enter the wearable market with its Runner GPS Watch. A simple monochrome menu is presented on the watchface. Navigating it is easily done with a directional pad positioned below. This simple layout ensures that, when you are on your last legs, you can still get the most out of the Sports Watch's functionality.

Unclasp the plastic band and the watchface pops out. This isn't a design shortcoming — quite the contrary. TomTom has designed the two separately to make charging the watchface simple. GPS isn't the most economical technology, but the advantages include geographically mapping tracks and a more accurate measurement of your speed, distance and burned calories.

Price: From $199.
