If getting fit is on your agenda for 2017, why not invest in a wearable fitness tracker from Fitbit? With its massive OLED display, the Charge 2 displays your heart rate, tracks a range of sports, offers guided breathing sessions and even tracks your sleep. If you’re sat in one place for too long, it’ll even remind you to get up and move (even if it is to go make a cup of tea!). You can also be matchy-matchy with what you’re wearing with the interchangeable straps.
Available for $1,298 at retailers around town.
