Mother’s Day is May 8 this year. A healthy mum is a happy mum, and a smartwatch fitness tracker or some snug-fitting sports earbuds will really make her day.

Fitbit Charge 5
All-day activity and women’s health tracking, sleep and stress management, health metrics and 20 exercise modes (with real-time stats) are all at mum’s fingertips with a Fitbit. The Charge 5 will also monitor blood oxygen levels and 24/7 heart health, and a Fitbit Premium subscription will unlock even more features like a Daily Readiness Score based on activity, sleep and heart rate, as well as recommending workout and recovery sessions accordingly. Moreover, there’s built-in GPS and the battery will last up to a week on a full charge. The Charge 5 has all the functionality synonymous with the brand, and then some.

Hidrate Spark Steel Smart Drink Bottle
This is no gimmick – smart fitness tech even extends to the humble drink bottle! There’s nothing humble about the Hidrate Spark, however, which recognises the importance of staying regularly hydrated during a workout and prompts the user with an illuminated LED when it’s time to stop and refresh. Fluid intake can be tracked when the bottle is paired with the free Hidrate Spark app, which is available for both Android and iOS. The rechargeable, stainless steel bottle holds 621ml of water and will keep it cool for up to 24 hours. Sometimes, even the simplest things can make a difference.
