Get in shape with the help of technology
More likely than not, your resolution has something to do with dropping a few pounds, getting into better shape, or maybe just cutting out all the lattes. If that’s the case, there’s an entire industry dedicated to helping make it easier on you. Everything from Shake Weights to pedometers can help you stick to your goals for 2013.
If you’re in the market for workout gadgets, most places that sell electronics can hook you up. You’re sure to find pedometers, heart rate monitors and other gadgets at your favorite stores, such as Best Buy and Target, both of which offer 2 percent cash back. Both also carry the Fitbit One activity tracker designed to monitor all kinds of fitness and health information.
Fixing up the house
New Year’s resolutions often are grounds for home improvement. It’s time to finally fix creaky steps and hang extra shelves, and to do those things, you’ll need tools.
Home Depot is the obvious place to start, where you can get gadgets ranging from laser levels to battery powered drills, plus anything else for fixing stuff. Amazon also has a number of great electronic items for household repairs.
If you’re in the market for the kinds of gadgets you want around the house that aren’t necessarily for repairs, consider The Sharper Image’s Home department. There you can find humidifiers, air purifiers, tie racks and jewelry cleaners, plus you can nab 8 percent cash back, free shipping over $50 and $10 back on some orders.
It’s still early in 2013, and those New Year’s resolutions won’t resolve themselves. There are a lot of gadgets that can help you start 2013 on the right foot.
