For $99, this little gem, can track how many hours of sleep you had, how many calories are your burning and even how many steps are you taking… 24/7. it's like a full time coach at your disposal. When you walk by the Tracker's base wireless base station, the base, wirelessly and automatically updates and upload your data to your FitBit.com account where you can track and analyze your progress. We love the simple clip design that you can put anywhere; so it is easy to be with you at all times.

Nike+ GPS
The app is only $2 and it will provide live GPS tracking of the path you are running, while you are running! Not only it will tell you where you are but it can also upload your route, tell you how many miles have you been running and even the time and speed. We love the "Challenge Me" feature; which pushes you to achieve a better time than the last one logged.

The Gruve
The one year subscription runs for $200 and basically, it's a lazy alarm. Tiny sensors trigger an alarm if you've been sedentary for too long. It also keeps track of your movements during the day and compares the number of calories burned to your pre determined goal and automatic upload that data to you gruve account online.

This is a tiny monitoring device that turns any iPhone into a personal trainer. It integrates current telemetry tech with a device you most likely are using now. Bunch of sensors are available and they all log the data in real time. The Fisica sensor weighs just 3.5 grams and runs off the iPhone battery. It plugs to the 30 pin post. You can log EKG data while enjoying all the phone's entertainment features at the same time. They also provide you with a Bike Package that tracks ground speed, cycle power and distance/location of your ride.
