Planning to gift a gadget to your loved ones? How about gifting a wearable and motivating them to adopt a healthier lifestyle? Here are some of the best wearables available in the market today.

Apple Watch Series 2

The upgraded smartwatch from Apple is faster, brighter, and comes with the Watch OS 3. Apple Watch Series 2 is water resistant and also swim resistant. It comes with built-in GPS tracker for outdoor workouts (so you can leave the phone behind). The sporty watch is an ideal gift for the fitness conscious iPhone aficionado. Price: Rs 32,990 onwards

Goqii 2.0

This wearable band goes beyond tracking footsteps. It has an advanced ecosystem with a focus on healthy living. There's an inbuilt coaching service that will motivate you to adopt healthy eating habits and indulge in regular exercise. The subscription also allows you to interact with a doctor over phone and gives access to a health vault (to safely store health reports at one place). The Goqii 2.0 lasts close to a week on a single charge. Unlike other bands, this one has a USB that can be plugged to a PC or an adaptor for charging. A gift of fitness goes a long way. Price: Rs 1,999 for a three-month subscription.

Fitbit Blaze

Have a friend who is crazy about running? This no-nonsense watch is just for him. The Blaze is good at keeping track of footsteps, exercise calories burnt, quality of sleep, resting time and more. It manages to track sleep, and detect middle-of-the-night wake up sessions with accuracy. It has an inbuilt heart rate sensor, too. Under exercise tracking, it offers options for running, cycling, weights, treadmill and elliptical, and automatically recognises the activity. Price: Rs 19,990

Mi Band 2

Looking at gifting a budget activity tracker? Then consider the Mi Band 2. This is a good looking yet accurate fitness band. It comprises a core with display which goes into a rubber band.

Pebble Time
