4 fab wearables to buy as a Christmas gift

These days, wearables come in all shapes and sizes, from smart watches packed with incredible tech, to fitness bands that monitor your health 24/7.

There’s something for everyone in our list of top wearable tech this Christmas…

1. Get help sticking to that New Year’s resolution with the Samsung Gear Sport

  • Smartphone notifications
  • Rugged waterproof design
  • Health and fitness tracking with GPS
  • Heart rate monitor

Finding the motivation to peel yourself off the couch just got a lot easier!

The Gear Sport is a sleek-looking smart watch with all the great features we’ve come to expect from Samsung.

With its waterproof design, heart rate monitor and GPS tracking, it’s sure to help get any new year fitness regime on the right track. The watch face is fully customisable too, so whether it’s for someone who loves a modern minimalist approach, or more of a traditionalist, there are tons of designs to choose from.

2. Accessorise in style with the Fitbit Flex 2 Activity Tracker

  • Fully customisable to suit any occasion
  • SmartTrack automatically recognises your activity
  • Waterproof design so you can take it swimming

This is a great little device for anyone looking to improve their fitness. The lightweight, slim frame means it can be worn 24/7 to monitor activity throughout the day as well as the amount and quality of sleep throughout the night.

It doesn’t even need to be told what activity to track either… because it just knows! Go for a swim and with ‘SmartTrack' it automatically recognises the activity and starts tracking it.

When you’re done, it syncs everything to the Fitbit app making it easy to view progress over time.

3. Love Apple? Get the latest Apple Watch S4

  • Crystal clear 40mm display
  • 4G and GPS connectivity
  • Water resistant design
  • Fall Detection that can alert for help if you’ve taken a tumble

This is the latest version of the Apple Watch and it’s seen the biggest update of the series yet - not to mention a serious performance boost.

The previous version was no slouch but interacting with the S4 is so much snappier. Not only does it just work (as Apple would say), but it just works so well - whether it’s sending texts, browsing emails, or using maps, it does it all with total ease.

Lots more has been improved on the latest Apple Watch. You’ll get better sound quality, a bigger and better screen that makes text much easier to read and even some extra safety features, like ‘Fall Detection’. That’s right, if the Apple Watch S4 detects that the wearer has fallen over and hasn’t moved for some time, it’ll alert their emergency contact – clever stuff.

When you combine all of the improvements and great new features with all the great smart watch features that you already get with the Apple Watch S4 – it makes for a truly magical Christmas gift.

4. Not just for the fitness fanatic, the Samsung Galaxy Watch

  • Get all of your smartphone notifications
  • Seven-day battery life
  • Loads of customisation options
  • Track your fitness with built-in GPS

Samsung may have designed their Galaxy Watch with pavement pounders in mind, but it won’t just appeal to runners looking for a top-notch GPS watch, it’s got a load of super-helpful smart features too.

With the built-in speaker and microphone, you can make phone calls straight from your watch. A big clear touchscreen combined with the rotatable bezel makes navigating the menu simple and intuitive.

Get all of your smartphone notifications straight to your watch, and with daily updates you’ll get reminders about calendar events like birthdays and meetings.
