2. GPS Watch

If this is a person who loves the outdoors, either running, cycling or trekking, then a GPS watch can definitely be a gift of choice. GPS watches are designed to give real-time feedback about the person’s speed, pace, time and distance while they are doing their favorite outdoor activity, and most of the GPS watches nowadays also have an option to pair with an external Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) to monitor workout stress levels.
