www.smarthalo.bike

$149 great for the biking enthusiast
Forget a rental car or a taxi: The best way to explore a city is often on two wheels. At the close of 2017, more than 60 U.S. municipalities are offering bike-share programs where at little or no cost, you can grab a bike and then return it when finished at any rack or station in the operating area. But how to know where you are going in a new city? SmartHalo is a sensor-like GPS device that attaches to any type of bike handlebar and pairs by Bluetooth with the SmartHalo app. While cycling, the phone stays in the pocket or the purse, and you get the fastest routes, answer calls and track fitness data.  
 

3.  CEP Compression Gear
www.cecompression.com

CEP Compression is a world leader in performance compression socks and apparel. Perfect for travel and fitness themed gift possibilities in the new year. CEP has a big holiday sale ongoing, and they ship fast! Compression sleeves and socks are crucial for people who travel long distances and have to remain seated for long periods of time. When movement is constrained, blood circulation to the legs is restricted causing heavy legs, leg pain, swollen feet and ankles and even blood clots. Try the Recovery+ Pro Compression Socks.
