Running with the Pear is like having a personal coach whisper into your ear, only much cheaper and way less creepy. The pedometer and heart rate monitor interacts with an online fitness tracking portal, but raises the bar on the competition by coaching you in real-time. Free, downloadable, heart rate-based workouts and plans are automatically adapted to your fitness level and goals, helping you PR in everything from a 5K up to a marathon. It’s technical training made accessible. Just press play and go—the rest is taken care of.
