Christmas Gift Guide 2016: 16 gadget gift ideas for fitness fanatics

Adidas Evil Eye Halfrim Pro Sunglasses (RM875)

Aside from a personal house-to-office bike lane, the dream for most cyclists is one pair of glasses to last the whole year. These Adidas sunnies fit the bill perfectly, courtesy of Vario lenses, which can change from completely clear to dark in just twenty two-wheeled seconds.

Suitable for both murky rides and bright sunny ones, their anti-fog coating, fluorescent highlights and a removable sweat blocker make them a good fit for mountain bikers, too.

Zepp Tennis kit (RM250)

It won’t stop the dreaded tennis elbow, but the nifty smart racket mount in this motion-monitoring kit might just make you more Murray than misery.

iOS and Android compatible, it syncs via bluetooth to capture every swing and volley, then feeds back on your courtside performance. It might sound a little too Wii-mote for serious servers, but once the Zepp starts telling you just how powerful (or not) that forearm is you’ll be lunging for your next statistics fix.

Chrome Barrage Cargo (RM805)

Need a commuting bag that can survive the rain? This waterproof backpack might be pricey, but after a few years of taking it on daily rides we can confirm that it’s both indestructible and, if you like dry work clothes, well worth the premium. 

The updated version of the Barrage Cargo offers handy side pockets, which nicely complement the tarpaulin-lined main compartment. The best features, though, are its seatbelt buckle and the adjustable cargo net - ideal for stashing your helmet during pub stops.
