Top GPS Fitness Gadgets
Anyone who is into fitness or sports will know that sometimes keeping fit and up-to-date with the latest trends can be expensive. The cost of things like Gym membership and new equipment can quickly reach thousands of pounds but for some reason we don’t seem to mind. Triathlon is a good example of this as evey year millions of people spend what might seem a crazy amount on the latest compression wear and apparel on top of the small fortune that they have spent on the latest carbon road bike. So why do we do it? Well if you are like me then you don’t mind spending money on anything that might improve your game. If I can buy a bit of kit that shaves 10 seconds off my marathon time or helps me recover quicker then I will definitely at least consider buying, all with the hope that I will become faster ever time that I race!
So with this in mind, what at the most popular fitness gadgets available on the market at the moment?
