ANCHOR LEAD: Technology is now allowing us to track everything from heart rate to blood pressure to calories burned. They make great holiday gifts just in time for New Years, too! Brian Osuch has the story… (:60) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. According to a new report from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) one in 10 Americans are likely to purchase a fitness device as a holiday gift this year. Danielle Cassagnol with CEA has the latest products in health and fitness tech. CUT: (Cassagnol) I've got an option from Fitbit called the Fitbit Charge which is a great entry-level tracker. There is an option from Misfit, called the Misfit Shine, which is a really sleek and elegant design, but if you don't want to wear one of these devices on your wrist there is also an option from Jawbone, call the Up Move, which will clip on to your belt loop or your backpack. SCRIPT: Cassagnol says the latest tech gadgets for kids can also help them to stay in shape. CUT: (Cassagnol) This year what I think is super cool, is this smart soccer ball from Adidas, the miCoach. It is Bluetooth enabled, app enabled, it will track how hard you kick the ball, how far you kick the ball so before long we'll all be able to bend it like Beckham! SCRIPT: For more go to CE.org/health. That's Lifestyles from the CEA. I'm Brian Osuch.
