Head­phones that track your heart rate, es­sen­tial run­ning gear, up­grade your home work­out kit, the best hair styling prod­ucts and our pick of off-road run­ning shoes

It’s a well-es­tab­lished fact that mu­sic can boost phys­i­cal per­for­mance, with one US study even sug­gest­ing that the ef­fect can in­crease ef­fort by 15%. The prob­lem is find­ing a set of head­phones that can cope with the rigours of in­tense train­ing. The Kick­starter-funded Bragi Dash may well be the so­lu­tion you’re look­ing for. As well as be­ing to­tally wire­less, sweat­proof and wa­ter­proof, th­ese ear­phones record heart rate through your beat­ing eardrum to help you mon­i­tor your work­out’s in­ten­sity. If that’s not enough, there’s also 4GB in­ter­nal mem­ory for stor­ing mu­sic and heart-rate data so you can go en­tirely hands-free. Your ears will thank you. £ 226­able­fromMay)
