If you buy a crap ton of disposable hand warmers every year to tuck into your gloves during workouts, rechargeable hand warmers will save you money in the long run. This one comes with a USB charging cable, has two heat settings, and lasts three to five hours on a single charge. It doesn't come as a set, so buy two if you want a pair.

The lightweight design made of grippy metal coils and carbide spikes will help you stay on pace and on your feet.
