All the accouterments you need to up your step count this year.

Each week we’ll be sharing a handpicked list of the best buys for your health and wellness, so keep your eyes peeled for The Edit.
Keys, wallet, phone safe and sorted.
Made for walking
With a streamlined fit, cushioned support and responsive design, these may end up being some of the comfiest shoes in your wardrobe. The fact that they’re made from renewable materials and are machine washable is a bonus.
Stay on track
For under $60, this fitness monitor does more than just track your steps. There’s a built-in heart-rate monitor, phone and social-media display, and it even counts your Zs.
Here’s to hydration
BPA and toxin-free with a spill-proof sports cap.
With their contour-hugging, supportive design, these leggings not only fit like a glove, but the moisture-absorbing technology also keeps you dry and comfortable between steps.
Carrying extra weight
Strap on these fashionable ankle and wrist weights to add a little extra resistance (about half-a-kilo) to a treadmill session or outdoor power walk.
Sometimes a good old pedometer is all you need. Hook it on to your keys, bag or belt loop, or toss it in your pocket.
Road, and eco, warrior
Dubbed the least petroleum-reliant performance shoes in the world, these vegan-friendly kicks are made from plant-based fibres and a natural by-product of corn to help you achieve a light, high-performance workout.
Step up your game
Connect to the Fitbit App to monitor everything from steps taken to your eating patterns. It can even track your female health cycle and guide you through breathing exercises for a truly holistic approach to your wellbeing.
