Verizon has the accessories to help stay in shape this summer

Summer is here, which means more time in the outdoors and in the gym. Verizon has the accessories to help you make the most of your summer fitness and stay on track with your goals.

Headphones to keep you going

Working out when you just want to relax outside can be hard, but the Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones ($149.99) can provide you with the extra motivation to get you moving. The headphones deliver exhilarating audio, however rigorous your workout may be. The StayHear+ earbuds will remain secure and comfortable while being sweat and weather resistant.

The Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones also feature Bluetooth and NFC technology that syncs up to a smartphone to play your favorite tracks to help keep you going. An inline mic remotely controls your phone so you can change the volume, skip tracks and take calls all without having to reach for your device and risk fumbling it mid-workout.

Stay fit even when traveling

Summertime also means trips to beaches, lakes and exploring new cities. Even if you are away from home, your fitness doesn’t have to take a vacation with the help of the Fitbit Blaze. Wherever your summer travels take you, the Blaze monitors physical activity including calories burned and steps taken, and measures heart rate trends to help you gauge the intensity of your workout.

If you aren’t able to go to a class or gym while traveling, the Blaze offers customized FitStar exercise guides right from your wrist. Exercise options on the wearable include: an 8 minute warm up, a 7 minute workout, and a 10 minute abs workout.

Accessory of the Month

The Fitbit Blaze is currently available for $179.99 (normally $199.99). The discounted pricing will be available for the month of June as part of Verizon’s accessory of the month promotion.
