Sports Watches on the Fly

Aug 14, 2008
Many people look into the watch if they're simply into being fit, but it's important they know their features and you pick the best one for your needs.

Technology as of late has improved dramatically, and ones watch can have all kinds of interesting additions you may not be aware of. Waterproof a watch that's safe from the effects of water are crucial if you are a diver, or swimmer, or you deal with water. And although most sports watches say waterproof, most aren't that effective, some are only protected in shallow water.

Research carefully before buying, if you are a swimmer, look for something that can deal with depth. Heart rate monitors are actually pretty pricey by themselves, but many sports watches come equipped with them now! And you don't have to worry about placement, it's already in the perfect spot to measure your heart rate (your wrist).

People who do the usual cardio could really use something like this, because even when one owns a separate heart rate monitor, it doesn't get much use as it's not very convenient. The watch on the other hand, is extremely convenient for heart monitoring. Not to mention, if you have heart issues, that watch can be a very valuable tool for your health. GPS System Is it really possible? Can you really have a GPS on your watch?

Sounds too good to be true right? It's not, GPS systems have managed to get extremely tiny. And it's not too extravagant, many people may think a watch with GPS is spy territory, but think about it, a device like that on your watch can save your life when hiking, dealing with trails, or find yourself lost outside the car (assuming it has GPS). Logs and Records Some advanced watches can actually take note and remember your speed, heart rate, location, and more.

That feature is perfect for anyone training, you won't need to drag someone along anymore to get your distance, times, etc. That's a big deal, you can spare your partner and get this training done on your own! Many watches can even remember the specific places you've ran, routes you were taking, and even past workouts! This means you accomplish more and do it more effectively.

Overall, sports watches have improved dramatically over the years, why not look into what you're missing, you may be shocked at what you can do these days.
