What are your New Year's resolutions for 2015? If you're like countless other New Zealanders, it's likely that getting fit and exercising regularly are both top of the list.

Everyone wants to be healthy and feel good (not to mention build a slamming beach body), but let's face it, sticking to an exercise program can be easier said than done. In today's fast-paced world, finding the motivation to head down to the gym or go for an evening jog can be a real challenge!

Fortunately, there are some very clever gadgets available that can make getting in shape easier than ever before. Here are a few tools which will help you get fit the smart way this summer.

Exercise wristbands

Forget jotting down personal bests in a beaten up notebook - a high-tech exercise wristband makes it easy and intuitive to accurately track your exercise and fitness patterns, and achieve better results in the process.

Wristbands like the Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband are not only stylish, lightweight and comfortable, they also make exercise fun by tracking important information like distance travelled and calories burned.

You can sync your Fitbit wristband directly to your PC, tablet or smartphone and save your progress. Then, set specific goals for your next workout, which you can monitor via LED lights that tell you how much you have achieved and how far you have left to go. How cool is that?

Bluetooth headphones

No good workout is complete without some great tunes to keep you going. But before you can go putting together your perfect workout playlist, you need to find a strong pair of headphones that will be up to the wear and tear of your exercise routine.

Jabra Pulse Bluetooth Sports Headphones are the perfect example of what you should look for in a good pair of exercise ear buds. These headphones offer wireless connectivity with your bluetooth-enabled audio player, while still maintaining crystal-clear Dolby sound, so you don't have to compromise on quality.

Not only that, but Jabra Pulse headphones come complete with a precision heartrate monitor and real-time voice coaching to keep you up to speed and motivated.

Smart scales

Whether you're trying to slim down or cut fat, or you're pounding back the protein shakes to build muscle mass, it pays to have a reliable smart scale that can give you accurate information.

Don't be fooled by old-fashioned scales, which are often tricky to read and misleading. Instead, invest in a Fitbit Aria wireless smart scale that measures important information like BMI and can securely transmit the data back to your home wireless network. What better way to ensure you are keeping up with your fitness goals?

With toys like these, you'll have no trouble exercising and staying healthy in 2015!
