1. Garmin Vivoactive 3

Price: €336.00

Pat Divilly Christmas Presents

I picked up a Garmin watch in the lead up to giving my first half Ironman a crack in Barcelona this year! Garmin watches are less bulky than a lot of the other sports watches out there and I find it great for tracking my times and distances particularly in the pool!

2. Salomon Guest Prime GTX Boot Hiking Boots

I’ve brought these boots with me on trips around Ireland and further afield to Everest Base Camp, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus and Machu Picchu. Really comfortable boot and haven’t had a blister in all the time wearing them!
