New Year Fitness Tech Sale
Save 40% Two easy ways to make your runs more enjoyable and improve your speed and distance are to add headphones and a fitness tracker. Right now the Jabra Elite 65t headphones and a variety of Apple Watch models are up to 40 percent off on eBay. We’re big fans of the Jabra Elite 65t headphones — they work for iOS and Android users and are “great, truly wireless, earbuds,” according to our reviewer. While they’re not designed for exercise, the fit is snug and the sound quality is great. And if neither of those products interest you or they’re sold out before you have time to purchase them, we recommend you peruse the rest of the fitness tech sale on eBay — you can save up to 40 percent off. — Meg Lappe |
