Here's some different ideas for the golfer in the family.
Nike+ FuelBand tracks how much, how often, and how intensely you move using “NikeFuel”, a universal way to measure movement for all kinds of activities. For golfers, you can also track number of steps and for the weight-conscious, you can count calories. The results can be synched to your mobile device or downloaded onto your computer or tablet. MSRP: $149.95. Visit www.nikegolf.ca for more information
Playing golf should be exactly that - playing. With Game Golf, game tracking happens in the background, so yo u can focus on playing instead of note-taking. Install the unique tags into each of your clubs and simply tag each club to the device before you take your shot. Game Golf logs what club you use and where on the course you use it. By combining these observations, your game is visualized like never before. Round stats can be viewed on mobile devices and tablets using the Game Golf app after uploading your game via a laptop or desktop computer. MSRP: $$269.99 Visit www.gamegolf.com

Think of a tire. If you don't roll it straight, it wobbles around or falls flat. The same logic is applied to a golf ball to create "The Pill™ Golf Training Ball," a training tool with major feedback. The Pill golf training ball helps you understand your swing by exaggerating flaws for quick detection & correction. Inaccuracies send it wobbling, rolling at a curve or falling on its side. Instant insight improves your performance for putt, chip & full shot. Visit www.thepillgolf.com MSRP: $12.95
