GET THE MOST FROM A WORKOUT THANKS TO THIS CUTTING-EDGE PERFORMANCE KIT.
The original ‘Odysseys’ became a streetwear staple in the ’80s but these are an entirely different beast, with Ortholite sock liners keeping the foot stable and adding plenty of cushioning for distance runners. And the colour scheme ensures ample attention. The anodised aluminium casing is 30 per cent lighter than stainless-steel models and the Ion-x facing is tougher than regular glass. But the real bonus is the onboard Workout app, which keeps track of exercise routines and monitors all progress. And the Activity app records all daily activity, letting you know calories burned or when it’s time to do some exercise. Music is a motivator when training and these not only pack plenty of room for your favourite tunes, but also measure heart rate, distance covered and calories burned through the free Jabra Sport Life IOS app. This next-gen range of compression garments comes with in-built sensors that provide real-time feedback across form, balance, respiration and more. It’s all thanks to a dedicated IOS app and compact ‘Core’ transceiver, which sits snugly in a side pocket in all garments across the range. This kit allows those who play in teams – rugby, soccer, hockey – to see how much distance they cover in a game, as well as time spent jogging or sprinting. Handy if you’ve been doing all the legwork in five-a-side – and want to prove it. One of the more stylish fitness trackers, it has a processor that figures out what type of workout is being done and files the stats accordingly. The ‘Smart Coach’ facility, meanwhile, provides personalised advice to keep you fitter and more focused. The Walkman is back – sort of. This nifty pair of headphones boasts 4GB of in-built storage and eight hours playback, and they’re waterproof, ideal for keen swimmers.
