Gaiam Touch Strapless Heart Rate Monitor

A healthy gift for men who want to check their heart rate

Why They’ll Love It: This smart little wristwatch makes checking heart rate and exercise intensity—a must for some exercisers—much simpler than it’s been in the past. Here’s why: This collaboration between cool lifestyle company Gaiam and Oregon Scientific, a well-regarded developer of personal electronics, is the first buttonless heart rate monitor ever. So, your giftee won’t have to wear a cumbersome chest strap to determine his heart rate; he can get his number on-demand by simply touching the monitor’s sensor.

Suggested Retail Price: $100

Where to Buy This Gift:,, Target, select sporting goods stores
