Keep track of time...and your workouts.
While you’re getting your gains, picking things up then very briefly after putting them down, or burning rubber on long rides and runs, why not track what's going on, how fast you’re going, and how far you’ve gone? Plus, heart rate! Here are some of the neatest fitness watches on the market.
If you’re putting in big time mileage, think ultras, this is the watch that won’t let you down. Up to 120 hours of continuous exercise tracking. Three battery modes help you get the greatest time, and if the watch doesn’t think it’ll make it, it will suggest you change modes. That’s smart.
Heart rate, more than 80 sport-specific settings, GPS navigation, barometric altitude, and waterproof to 100 meters.
A sport watch with a lot of punch that won’t look like you duct-taped an iPhone to your wrist. The GPS tracking you want including compass, gyroscope, and barometric altimeter.
