Contigo has very cool bottles that would fit any lifestyle. One of my favorite ones is AUTOSEAL Kangaroo Water Bottle with Pocket. This one has a separate pocket that works perfect for small things you usually bring to the gym and don’t know what to do with. Learn more about the Contigo experience.

I have a previous model of this activity tracker that doesn’t track sleep , but I have to say that it works really great with counting steps and other daily activities. It also synchs to iPhone app Argus for tracking long term goals. I can’t live without a wristwatch and this one fits my lifestyle perfectly. The new Zone C410 automatically tracks your activity during the day and night! Sleep, calories burned, steps taken and distance traveled are all recorded. Dynamic distance calibration is used for improved accuracy, while your sleep efficiency is automatically monitored based on micro movements. Previous models of this activity tracker start at $59.99.
