- Great motivation to work out
- Waterproof, comfortable, and stylish
- Best watch EVER!
The Apple Watch seriously takes fitness tracking to a whole new level. It tracks steps, heart rate, and sleep while displaying calls, texts, and calendar alerts. As an added bonus you the Series 2 is still compatible with all Series 1 accessories.
If your lady isn't into Apple products you may need to look for something a bit more universal. Also, this bad boy comes at a pretty hefty price.
Why she'll love it: There is a lot to love about the new Apple Watch Series 2. Like most fitness trackers, the Apple Watch will connect with your iPhone via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to track her steps, monitor her sleep, and remind her to stay active. We also love the silent alarm and waterproof technology. (Yes, you heard that right. You will no longer be woken up if she has to get up earlier than you.) But our favorite part is the fact that the Apple Watch will display calls and messages to her on your wrist so she can stay connected regardless of where she is or what she's doing. Additionally, it's available in a variety of color options, though Rose Gold is our personal favorite.
A few clear improvements from the Series 1? First of all, the battery lasts for 2-3 days rather than being at 5% by bedtime. Additionally, the GPS in the watch is great for tracking walk/run distances without having to take the iPhone along. Finally, reviewers love the upgraded fitness tracker so much they say it even rivals chest strap monitors in terms of performance and accuracy. The Series 2 is still compatible with Series 1 accessories as well (thanks, Apple)!
Price: $345 seems like a lot to spend on your lady friend, but can you really put a price tag on how happy she'll be Christmas morning when she sees this beauty under the tree? Remember you can always opt for the Series 1 and save yourself $100, but remember you will be sacrificing the upgraded performance and features of the Series 2.
However, if you're looking for something considerably less expensive, the Fitbit Flex 2 is a great option as well. It includes activity and sleep tracking, personalized guidance, and a silent alarm option. Additionally, it's super chic and you can currently find it on Amazon for just over $50! At that price you could even afford to throw in a stylish bangle so she can dress it up a bit and wear her Flex 2 for formal occasions as well, certain to make your girlfriend (and your wallet) very happy.
