Under Armour HOVR is more than a running shoe, it’s a fitness tracker

Running isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it. And while some runners would argue that it’s the challenge that makes running worthwhile, there are more than a few of us out there who would prefer to make it easier. That’s why the Under Armour HOVR running shoes bring more to the table than just a comfortable fit. With UA’s Record Sensor technology, you can track distance, duration, and even the path you take as you run. So if you’re in the market for a fitness tracker, you should definitely consider these high-tech and digitally connected shoes.

A Fitbit, Apple Watch, or Garmin smartwatch can help you track your fitness, but not quite in the same way as these shoes. These digitally connected sneakers can gather data on your run with or without your smartphone on hand. The sensor inside the shoe allows for some powerful tracking tools that provide key metrics and even suggestions to help you improve. All you need to do is download the UA MapMyRun app, add your shoe, and get full access to data tracking and gait coaching based on your movements.

While the digital aspect of these shoes is definitely exciting, it’s not the only feature that makes them unique. The UA HOVR technology was built to provide that ‘zero gravity feel’ to help reduce the impact of each step. The compression mesh Energy Web also contains and molds the UA HOVR foam to help provide comfort and support as you move. With the Phantom/SE, the Infinite, and the Sonic 2, there’s a UA shoe for every kind of runner.

UA Hovr Phantom/SE

The UA HOVR line provides multiple shoe choices, but if you’re looking for the most versatile running shoe, the Phantom/SE is the direction you’ll want to go. Under Armour claims that this particular sneaker is sleeker, more aerodynamic, and more breathable than the other models. It comes with the same fitness tracking as all of the other models, so you can easily gather data on ever run you wear them on. With a padded ankle collar, an ultra-breathable liner, and a 3D molded midfoot panel, the UA HOVR Phantom/SE was built for comfort and performance without sacrificing style.

There are several colorways to choose from for both men and women as well as a variety of sizes available. The Phantom/SE is available directly from the Under Armour website for $140, but the other models below are more affordable.

UA HOVR Infinite

While the Phantom/SE was built to be more versatile, the Infinite was built to last. These shoes were made with distance runners in mind. With the perfect combination of cushion, bounce, durability, and efficiency, these Under Armour running shoes have gone the extra mile to help you go the extra mile. They were actually good enough to win the 2019 Runner’s World “Recommended” award.

There are several colorways to choose from for both men & women, and more to come this year! The UA HOVR Infinite is currently available for $120 directly from the Under Armour website.

UA HOVR Sonic 2

If you like the features of the other 2 models but are looking for something a little lighter and more flexible, the Sonic 2 is the shoe for you. It comes digitally connected with that same ‘zero gravity feel’ but with a bit more comfort built into the design. The microthread upper tonal, removable sockliner molds, and unique tongue construction all come together to create a comfortable fit.

They offer a simple black colorway that will go with anything, as well as bright colorways to stand out in your shoe closet. Coming in at just $100, the Sonic 2 is the most affordable shoe in the Under Armour HOVR lineup right now.

Amazon cuts prices on Samsung Gear Fit and Fitbit Alta activity trackers
Fitbit Samsung activity tracker deals

Spring is finally here to stay, and many of us are champing at the bit to head outside and shake off the winter frost. Whether you’re doing so for fun or for fitness, a good activity tracker can help you get the most out of your outdoor adventures and workouts, and Amazon has just cut prices on a small handful of the best ones from Fitbit and Samsung Gear Fit.

Smartwatches haven’t quite caught on like smartphones did more than a decade ago – turns out people weren’t sold on the “phone on your wrist” slogans – but fitness watches remain a popular niche for wearable tech. This is largely due to the simpler and more purpose-focused design of an activity tracker. If you’re looking for one of these (and aren’t in the market for a full-on smartwatch), the Fitbit Alta and Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro should be right up your alley.

Keep your MacBook safe and dry with an Under Armour backpack for under $50

Whether you're a student, an office worker, or just someone with more stuff than two hands can carry, a backpack is a great thing to own. Having a convenient place to store your MacBook, papers, and snacks can make your life much easier. Not all backpacks are fully equipped for what nature can throw at them, however. Without proper waterproofing, the contents of even the most luxurious of backpacks could end up getting soaked by a decent bit of rain. Which is why getting yourself a rainproof backpack can be so beneficial -- especially if you plan on toting electrical devices around.

Fortunately, Under Armour is having a huge sale this weekend to help you on your quest for a better backpack. The UA Outlet Exclusive sale is going on now through Monday, February 18th alongside many Presidents' Day sales. With up to 40 percent off outlet items, this sale is nothing to sneeze at. You can even get an extra 20 percent off when you spend $100 or more with the promo code RALLY20. So if you need a new backpack, now is a great time to get a good one for cheap.
