Ideal for: The Must-Know-Everything Tech Junkie
Set for release in April, the Apple Watch is quite possibly the most talked about wearable tech device of this decade. The Activity app uses easy-to-read circles to quickly convey how well you’re doing burning calories, exercising, and standing. The last is unique to this particular watch right now and a very important health marker. Sedentary hours can lead to big health problems later, so the watch reminds you to stand often and gives you a running tally of how often you took a break from sitting. A separate Workout app lets you set goals based on the activity you’re doing, how many calories you want to burn, how long you want to exercise, and how far you want to go.
Con: It’s pricey, and it might not be the best starter fitness device for most people. Rumors suggest the device’s battery life may be a drawback, and since it’s not available yet, it may not be as advertised.
