Show your dad you care by buying him a great gift; not only one that he loves, but one that will help him to get fit and healthy too. If you’re stuck for ideas that fit the bill, then here are five options that will help to whip him into shape in no time at all:
1. The Withings Activité Watch
There are plenty of fitness trackers out there, but here’s one that looks like a classic watch rather than a futuristic wristband. This Swiss watch not only tells the time, but also counts your steps, monitors your sleep, logs your swimming workouts and more.
2. The Tanita BC-730 Electronic Scales
These compact scales monitor changes in your body over time, including your weight, body fat, muscle mass, basal metabolic rate and other metrics. Simply programme in your data and it will remember you each time you use it – a nifty little gadget.
3. Backbeat FIT Wireless Headphones
These wireless headphones come complete with an armband to keep your phone or MP3 player safe, and include a wealth of handy features. They’re comfortable, stable and flexible – perfect for any workout – as well as being splash, sweat and rain proof. You can use the on ear controls to skip tracks too.
4. The Vapouriz FUSE Dual Coil Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit
If dad’s a smoker, help him to kick the habit with an e-cigarette starter kit, containing everything he needs to make his addiction history. With a rechargeable battery, a new dual coil clearomiser tank, a USB charging cable, a metal case and instructions, the only other thing he’ll need is an e-liquid in his choice of flavour and strength to get going.
5. Nike+ Xbox Kinect Training (available from here)
If there’s an Xbox in the house and your dad’s a fan, this training package is sure to get him moving. Nike+ Kinect Training provides the same training as elite athletes receive, all in the comfort of your own home. Every movement will be tracked, you can earn points for activity and you can also connect to friends.
