If you enjoy running in the outdoors, or just packing in a hiking session during the weekends, exploring Singapore on foot is always a good idea. Our little red dot offers plenty of nature and greenery for you to boost your physical and mental well-being.
One of our favourite routes is The Botanic Gardens. Known as the country's first UNESCO World Heritage Site, run or jog past the colourful National Orchid Garden and the serene Swan Lake. And when you're done clocking in the kilometres, lie on the green patch by the Bandstand to take it down a notch.
Of course, to track your heartbeat rate, or to calculate your calories, there are a number of nifty products that can bring fresh life to your routine. Here are a couple of health and fitness products you should add to cart this year.
