While much of the workout gadgetry-related attention has been focused on wearables lately, there are a number of really awesome fitness gadgets being created that don’t go on your wrist. As summer is now upon us, we can all probably use an extra workout or two to get in tiptop beach/pool shape.
Here are a few of the more interesting and creative fitness gadgets I was able to dig up (wearables and beyond). As always, I will be updating this post semi-regularly as I stumble on more gadgets. Be sure to keep up with any additions by following my corresponding Pinterest board.

Sportline HydraCoach Intelligent Water Bottle
Known as the world’s first interactive water bottle, the HydraCoach looks just like other water bottles, but with one notable difference–a built-in hydration monitor. This patented technology lets users program their own personal hydration needs into the integrated computer and track their daily water consumption sip by sip. It’s the best possible way to achieve optimal hydration whether sitting at work or running on the treadmill. Among the measurable details are total amount consumed, total elapsed time since the computer started, average hourly and daily consumption, percent of daily goal, and total sips. And technophobes needn’t fret, as all you have to do to calculate your personal hydration goal is enter your weight. Other features include a built-in clock and calendar, an easy-to-clean polycarbonate shell, a soft silicone mouth piece, and a finger ring.
