Did you know Verizon has a ton of great exercise gadgets to trick out your exercise routine? Not only do we have awesome phones, but we have some amazing accessories to help you get the best out of your workout.
First up, almost every new exercise bike has bluetooth, which means you aren’t limited to the speakers on your bike. JBL makes a great new speaker — the Flip5 — that gives you a ton of bass to perk up your earballs while you work out. What’s more? It even fits in the cup holder.
Now let’s say you’re working from home and trying to squeeze in a ride between meetings, but your partner or kids are in the other room, you can also connect your earphones to your bike and tune everyone out. I like the Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones, because they have adjustable, secure-fit ear hooks that comfortably keep them on your ears no matter how much you bounce. They’re also sweat- and water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about getting them wet.
Looking for a cool new smart watch? Meet Fitbit Sense. It’s Fitbit's first-ever advanced health smartwatch and it features in-app stress management tools to track stress so you can decompress and live a healthier life. It also tracks all-day activities like steps, distance, Active Zone Minutes and calories burned. You can also use the built-in GPS to check out your pace and distance and then see a map of your workout in the Fitbit app.
Finally, Verizon is supporting a fitness accessory called the SPIbelt, designed to hold your phone, wallet and keys while you’re running. It’s super minimalist and it’s bounce free, so no excess jiggling while you ride or jog.
