Even if you’re not a sports fan yourself, chances are there will be someone in your life who is. Whether they’re into general fitness, a particular activity, or simply love watching it on the big screen, sports tend to be a major interest for a number of people.
Finding a gift for someone interested in sports can be difficult but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this article, we take a look at some of the best gadgets and technological devices you can buy for fans, regardless of budget or the type of sport they’re into.
As any swimming fan would put it, let’s dive straight in.
Fitness follower? Try the Apple Watch Series 5.
Apple currently reigns supreme in the world of smart watches and, following the recent release of their Series 5 offering, that doesn’t look set to change. Described by many as beautiful, elegant and miles ahead of the competition in terms of its technology, you don’t have to look too hard to see why so many people aspire to own one.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone you know loves keeping on track of their workouts, the Apple Watch is the ideal solution. However, starting at $399 it’s not the cheapest smartwatch on the market so, if you’re looking for a more cost-effective alternative, the Fitbit Versa 2 and the Amazfit GTS are two great alternatives.

If you’re buying for someone who fancies themselves as the next Tiger Woods, then the SkyTrak Full System Golf Simulator could be a great option. At almost $10,500, it’s certainly not cheap, but it is a fantastic piece of technology for any golf fan to own.
Installing the golf simulator in a garage, spare room or garden cabin will turn the space into the ultimate mancave. Now, whenever the weather takes a turn outside, wannabe golfers can still work on their swing and short game thanks to SkyTrak’s bespoke technology and software.
Biking boffin? Try the Beeline Navigation Device.
If you know someone who’s big into cycling but is also always late to things, the Beeline for Bicycles Navigation Device could be a fantastic option. This user-friendly navigation device simply attaches to a bike’s handlebars, guiding the user to their destination with a simple arrow on a clear display.
Available in a range of colors, the device has a 30-hour battery life, comes in a shockproof case and is completely waterproof. Plus, at around $130, it is simply a must-have for any wannabe cyclist.

Having a good diet is as, if not more, important than doing exercise itself. So, if you’re buying for a fitness fanatic, why not think about purchasing the NutriBullet 1200 Series with Smart Technology?
The 12-piece set includes an extractor blade, handled cup, an insulated stainless-steel cup, lids, a user guide and a recipe book, enabling users to create their very own smoothie sensations from the moment they open it. Even if they’re not a sport fan specifically, helping keep someone healthy can never be a bad thing.

It’s all well and good being an avid sports fan but, without the proper equipment, it can make the experience all that more difficult. Therefore, if you know someone who loves their sports but still has an outdated TV setup, why not sort it out for them?
Whether you choose to buy and install a brand new smart 4K TV for them, or simply purchase a one-month subscription to Sky Sports via NOW TV, there are a number of ways you can improve the viewing experience for your friend or family member.
Football fanatic? Try FIFA 20.
You would be hard pushed to find a football fan out there who doesn’t also enjoy playing FIFA 20. Whether they play Xbox, Playstation or Nintendo Switch, the game is available across a wide range of consoles and is the ideal gift for those with a passion for the beautiful game.
Plus, at less than $60 on Amazon, it’s also available at a price that not only won’t break the bank, but will guarantee you a lot of brownie points. Talk about a win-win.
