Warm Weather Workout Buys

Summer’s long days and warm temperatures make it perfect for heading outside and getting in shape. Upgrade your gear for the season with these five picks we love.

Smarten up your accessories with the lightweight Garmin vívoactive smartwatch, ($199.99, from Scheels). It features built in sports apps, including GPS-enabled activity tracking and a battery strong enough to last for three weeks, plus the vívoactive pairs with your smartphone to show alerts or vibrate when you’re getting a call, text or calendar alert. Oh, and it tells the time.

Transition from a sweat session to running errands in the Smart Sweater ($79, shown with print skirt, $59, from Title Nine), breathable performance gear that also looks good on the go thanks to its trim fit and contouring. Bonus: Slipping on the zip-up means you’re leaving less skin exposed to the sun.

Keep the focus on your adventure—whether it be a vacation surf session or big race—and not painful chafing. Body Glide Skin Protection Balm for Her, ($8, from Title Nine) creates an invisible barrier that protects skin from rubbing and the irritation that can come from it with an allergen-free formula that’s safe for sensitive skin.

Smooth enough to be worn under a T-shirt and still get you through the a grueling workout, these Uprise pullover bras (on sale for $38 each, from Title Nine) come in colorful designs to pep up your fitness wardrobe.

Switch out your beaten up gym bag for this feminine take on the duffel ($79, from Lucy). Stash your phone or keys in the side pocket and tuck a change of clothes and sneakers in the main storage area. Get extra mileage out of the quilted carryall by taking it on weekend trips.
