Mother’s Day can be a surprisingly difficult holiday to nail. Sure, there are the flowers, the chocolates, the odd perfect gift. But if you’ve run through those favorites in recent years, you might be at a loss as to the appropriate present for that certain special lady. But have you considered a fitness wearable?
The tracking device industry is no longer a niche market for health nuts — from Samsung’s versatile Galaxy Watch 4 to the streamlined Fitbit Versa 2, the best smartwatches are a functional combination of sleek athletics and useful tracking, all with the standard bells and whistles — text, app compatibility, sleep tracking, etc — that make the little devices so worthwhile.
And with Best Buy’s current promotion — $50 off, through Mother’s Day — on a bevy of smart devices from Samsung, Garmin, Fitbit and more, you won’t have to drop a ton to please the mom in your life. Below, three InsideHook-approved fitness wearables that will make her Mother’s Day one to remember.
Samsung 40mm Galaxy Watch 4
Chock-full of tech perfect for helping her perform her best, the Galaxy Watch 4 is a must have for any Samsung mom.
Fitbit Versa 2 Smartwatch
The Fitbit Versa 2 may be streamlined, but that doesn’t mean the smartwatch doesn’t pack a punch. 24/7 heart rate tracking, precise sleep data and voice control make this the perfect little gadget for any mom.
Garmin 33mm Venu 2 GPS Smartwatch
Garmin’s performance devices are in a league of their own when it comes to tracking runs, laps, bike rides and more. Perfect for the active mom, the Venu 2 sports built-in GPS, music storage and a 5-day battery charge, wrapped up in a pretty little fiber-reinforced polymer casing.
