The next smart/fitness watch to look out for: Huawei GT 2
Huawei’s wearable tech continues to evolve. The latest is the Huawei Watch GT 2, which has a longer battery life than its predecessor; expect up to two weeks before a recharge is needed. The watch’s significantly improved tech functions includes support for Huawei Music, as well as an always-on display that adjusts its brightness automatically to make checking the time – or calories burnt – a breeze. The smartwatch is also incredibly lightweight. Paired with the flexible yet durable fluoroelastomer strap, the GT 2 is comfortable on the wrist, even during an intense workout.
Available at all Huawei outlet stores.
The next workout space to be at: Ground Zero
It can be hard to achieve a breakthrough when you work out on your own. Sometimes, all you need is that extra push to break that personal record you set a few weeks ago at the gym. At Ground Zero, the trainers believe that the most effective way to get this push is to exercise with a partner – or a group of friends. Encouragement also comes from the gym’s scoreboard system, which lets participants compete among themselves, or simply against their past individual scores. Post-gym nutrition is taken care of by the on-site juice bar serving various smoothies and protein shakes; try the Banana Oreo Protein Milkshake.
Ground Zero’s new space is located at 18 Cross Street.
The next pair of kicks to compete in: New Balance OMN1S
New Balance re-enters the basketball scene with its latest OMN1S basketball footwear that, true to its moniker, gives every action on the court a boost, be it starting, stopping, jumping, or changing directions. This is made possible by the OMN1S’s proprietary lightweight FuelCell midsole that enhances a player’s speed, while also cushioning every impact that the feet experiences during play. The shoe comes in seven colourways, including white and gold and luminous red and pink, so there’s likely something to match every uniform.
Available at selected New Balance stores.
The next timepiece to workout with: G-Shock G-Squad
In an era when every bench press completed at the gym comes with an Instagram story, fitness enthusiasts are putting as much effort into dressing for the gym as they do their workouts. With G-Shock’s G-Squad watches, rest assured – you’re equipping yourself with a functional yet fashionable wristwatch. Coming in four different variants, the watch features a reflective band for visibility – as well as a pop of colour. It is compatible with G-Shock’s fitness monitoring app that tracks users’ workout progress and timings.
Available at all G-Shock Casio outlets except IMM.
