Fitbit One – $100

One of two new devices in the Fitbit lineup, the One is a dramatic improvement over its predecessor, the Fitbit Ultra. The small fitness device clips onto your clothing and tracks your various daily activities including the amount of calories burned, steps taken, and overall sleep quality. You can also access all this data with a free Web account on or the Fitbit app to analyze activity trends. The rechargeable battery can last up one week on a single charge so you can clip it on and go.

JBL OnBeat Xtreme – $430

The JBL OnBeat Xtreme is your one-stop option for the best all-around iPod speaker dock. The sound quality is fantastic, whether your device is docked or streamed over Bluetooth, and the speaker is solidly built to stand the test of time. The addition of a ⅛-inch auxiliary input makes it compatible with pretty much anything that has an analog audio output, and the built-in microphone allows you to take calls while playing your favorite tunes.
