2. Bluetooth Headphones

Perfect for running without getting all tangled up on the wire. Just sync the headphones with your smartphone and play music via Bluetooth.

3. Fitness Tracker

Especially after the holidays, it's good to keep an eye on your physical activity. While most trackers are pretty expensive, the Pivotal wristband lets you measure your steps, distance and calories burned, as well as your sleep cycles.
