Rain, shock, sand, and dust are no match for these extra-durable headphones. And even if your mom doesn’t regularly encounter such drastic elements during her workouts, this headset’s wireless and Bluetooth capabilities make it approximately eight zillion times better than the ubiquitous tangle-prone plug-in earbuds. (Bonus: a built-in FM radio.)


TomTom Multi-Sport GPS WatchTomTom
While the rest of the world is geeking out over the Apple Watch, non-iOS users will be plenty happy with this decked-out sport watch from navigation giant TomTom. Ideal for outdoor activities like running, biking, and swimming, it tracks your time, distance or laps, pace, and calories burned. You can also sync, analyze, and store that data with your fitness-minded friends on the TomTom app as well as other apps and running sites.


GoProGoPro Hero
The all-mighty GoPro can set you back $500 and up, if you opt for all the bells and whistles. But the modest GoPro Hero, billed as the brand’s best entry-level model, does more than enough for the typical active mom: It’s wearable, gear-mountable, waterproof—and practically begging to be taken along on her next adventure.


Movement-analyzing Zepp devicezepp
If your mom plays tennis, golf, softball, or baseball—and is looking to up her game—Zepp is for her. For each sport, the device works a bit differently to analyze your moves; a golfer, for example, will mount it on her glove, take a swing, and then watch an H-D video analysis on her smartphone next to side-by-side comparisons with the pros. (No pressure, right?)
