What to look for when buying a sports watchMustafa Shikari
If you’re an avid sportsperson, or are looking to get fitter, just having fitness and step tracking apps on your phone won’t be enough. Think about it – have you ever tried to go for a swim with your phone strapped to your ankle?
You’ll need a sports watch – one that’s efficient, and worth all the money you’ll put in. Here are a few key things to look for when you’re buying yourself a new sports watch.
If you’re someone who engages in outdoor activities often, it’s important that your watch can withstand the rain, and water in general. Make sure to get a sports watch that is water resistant, to get the most usage out of it.
2. GPS tracking
Running, walking, and cycling are the most common forms of outdoor exercise, and having an inbuilt GPS in your sports watch will ensure accurate tracking of the distances you’ve covered, and hence, also the calories you’ve burned.
3. Long battery life
Good battery life for a sports watch would be considered approximately 40 hours. It is necessary to ensure your watch won’t die out and stop tracking your exercise while you’re in the middle of a long workout, or a charger isn’t available for a while. This is especially important during treks, long marathons, camping etc.
4. App syncing
What’s the point of a good sports watch if you can’t easily access what it’s telling you? It’s important that your sports watch has an app that can be synced with all the other vital statistics, like your heart rate, calories burned, etc.
5. Daily activity tracking
If you own a sports watch, it’s better to have one that tracks your non-sport activities as well, like sleep, number of steps walked, heart rate, etc. People often wear separate daily tracking fitness watches, which can be inconvenient, as well as a waste of money.
