This is the year of the wearable device. Smart gadgets help us to stay fit, lose weight and track our progress. Here is the list of the best fitness gadgets of 2015 and 2016.
Track your progress in style! This device is expensive, but it can do much more than simple tracking of your steps, heart rate and so on. You can run apps on the watch to send and receive texts, get reminders, see weather and other extras. Buy here.

Safety is important, yes? This jacket for cyclists is a real deal. Equipped with motion-activated turn signals it provides an easy way to show your intentions to the traffic around you. Just raise your arm to indicate a turn. And it’s waterproof and stylish! Buy here.
Although it’s a simple wearable that can’t measure your heart rate, for example, it’s cheap, waterproof, and measures your steps very precisely. Another great option is a smart alarm. You set an exact time, and the gadget awakes you at a perfect moment (when you in an REM sleep phase), sometimes half an hour before. Reviews show that it’s 60%-70% easier to wake up, because of this smart alarm. Buy here.
