For the athlete or the wellness-minded friend in your life, the perfect stocking stuffer has to be the FitBit Charge 5! It breaks my heart that some of our early athletes like Jackie Robinson, Billie Jean King, Larry Bird — or this episode’s surprise guest — never got to compete in a world with FitBit… can you imagine the steps they’d rack up?!

But no joke, the FitBit Charge 5 allows you to optimize workouts and measure your heart rate to keep you at your desired intensity levels. Plus, there’s even a daily stress management score that shows the impact of your exercise routine on your stress levels.

Check out the video above to see which famous historical figure popped up in the George Talks Tech Holiday Your Way Historical Figure Randomizer. Hint: Much like the FitBit, the athlete also has two syllables with no space in between. (Confused? Watch episode 1).

If you want your own George this holiday season, either to find the perfect gift to add to your list or for that hard-to-buy-for someone, take our #HolidayYourWay Quiz. It’s only five questions and it’ll probably take you less time than scooting down a chimney. Plus, it’s way cleaner.

Happy Holidays!
