Top 6 Compact Fitness Gift Ideas for Men and Women

With the holidays here, it's important to get in the gift-giving spirit, embrace the winter solstice, light a yule log or whatever it is you do. With all the holiday foods and goodies around this time of year, it is even more important to stay in shape and to give fitness gifts that help others do the same!

With this in mind, here is a list of the top ten compact fitness gifts for men or women for the holidays. Why compact? Because big things take up precious space, and we like big value in small packages.

Stuff your favorite fitness junkie's stocking with one of these and you are sure to be appreciated (with love or some equally cool gift.)

Garmin Forerunner 405 Wireless GPS-Enabled Sport Watch w/USB ANT Stick and Heart Rate Monitor 

Who wouldn't want one of these under the tree? Remember when digital watches with timers were a big deal? If not, you don't know how lucky you are to have goodies like this available. The Garmin Forerunner 405 is like a laptop on your wrist.

It features a touchscreen bezel to change screens and has the ability to keep track of every detail of you workout. If you are an endurance athlete, or even dabble in it, this watch monitors:

  • Heart rate
  • Distance
  • Pace
  • Time
  • Calories
The USB ANT stick & wireless capabilities lets you store, share and send data to your computer or to friends. Because it's Garmin, the GPS stores routes and let's you view detailed graphs of time and distance.

Access a map of any stored workout and review details of previous routes and workouts. You can even schedule upcoming workouts on the calendar. One of the best gift gadgets for men or women. Oh, and by the way, it also tells time.

(Best deal)
