Fitness wear is getting techier by the second and though this means heart-rate monitors and sports watches can do everything from count calories, steps, distance and sleep cycles, they’re not the only thing that can vastly improve the way you work out.
Breakthrough technology can also be found in clothes, shoes and accessories, all with the common goal of helping you go that extra mile during your next sweat sesh.
Here are five of our favourite pieces of high tech sportswear apparel guaranteed to help you run, skip and jump your way to even greater fit-body success.
Oakley Polarised Game Changer Sunglasses are lightweight eyewear suited to sophisticated active women. The thin and oversized frame adds an air of elegance to your training outfit, and its HDPolarised lenses will filter out 99 per cent of reflected glare while keeping your vision clear so you can focus more on your workout.

It’s important to support your ‘girls’ through thick and thin, so a good sports bra is imperative for every session. The Oakley Endurance Sports Bra is our go-to for medium-impact activities such as cycling, barre and Pilates, as the sweat-wicking, stretchy fabric will allow you to move to your full potential and keep you looking (and feeling) fabuous when you get worked up during your workout.
