10 Cool Gadgets Every Runner Should Be Using

There's nothing like a good run to clear your head, melt away the stress, and push your body to its limits. With the right playlist in your ears and a comfortable pair of running shoes, you're on your way. Once you settle on your location: a track around the park, through the forest, or on the side of the mountain (real or imagined), you're ready for one heck of a workout.

Running has always been part release, part exercise. But now, we've got the gadgets to take it to the next level. Of course, devices won't make the actual running part any easier. You'll still have to put one foot in front of the other for the next 45 to 60 minutes. But those little tech devices may just help you to enjoy it more. Or, it may just get you pumped to take your fitness to the next level.

Whether you run for yourself, jog with a team, or you need a bit of inspiration to keep you moving, these are the gadgets you want. Our fave? It's easily the Jawbone UP3. Not only does it measure heart rate, log your workout, and track your route, but it's also water-resistant. And, just wait until you see the battery life this bad boy has.
