SoundLink® around-ear wireless headphones II

I never realized how important a good pair of headphones was until I put on a pair from Bose. Believe it or not, even some of the most “basic” songs you hear on the radio actually have a lot going on in the background–it’s just not possible to pick it up on if you don’t have the right headphones or speakers. The same song you’ve heard a million times might actually end up blowing you away once you truly capture all of the subtle instruments and background vocals.

These SoundLink headphones will provide you with possibly the best sound you’ve ever experienced, even if you’re in a windy or noisy environment. Aside from listening to music, they’re great for phone calls–even your recipient will hear you much more clearly. With soft ear cushions and a contoured headband, they’re lighter and more comfortable than other comparable headphones, so you can enjoy them all day long (especially since it has a 15 hour battery life). The wireless aspect is especially helpful in the winter, since you’re likely going to be wearing various layers and won’t want to get tangled up in wires. If you read the reviews, you’ll notice lots of happy customers, ranging from casual, everyday music listeners to very critical DJs.

GoPro Video Camera


Whether you’re mountain biking, snowboarding, swimming, running, or simply taking an adventure, the GoPro can accommodate your active lifestyle while taking incredible pictures and videos of your journey. There are a few different GoPro models, but the GoPro HERO4 is the most advanced one yet, with a processor that has doubled its previous speed. This model is waterproof up to 131 feet, so unless you’re attaching your camera to a whale, it’s pretty much suitable for any given situation. With the right attachment, you can capture almost anything!

Depending on your personal health and fitness goals, this simple-looking yet advanced wristband can work with you to achieve your goals. The tracker measures heart rate, your level of activity, calories burned, sleep, and even nutritional intake. If you’re sitting around too much, it’ll remind you to get up and go for a walk. If you’re supposed to wake up at a certain time, it’ll keep a time range in mind instead of interrupting your REM sleep. The special heart rate monitor can help you assess if you’re burning enough calories and optimize your workouts.

Basically, this fitness band is like having a doctor, cheerleader, coach, and friend on your wrist!
