If ‘healthier living’ is one of your good intentions for 2020, you have a lot of help from technology nowadays. With a useful smartwatch on your wrist, you’ll be able to keep track of your sporting achievements.
Here are five of them which you can use after the sport.
Garmin Vivoactive 4
When things started to go a little less with stand-alone GPS systems, the American brand Garmin went all the way again for its sports products. It quickly became one of the biggest creators of smartwatches with a sporty slant, and within the full range it laid out, the Vivoactive 4 is one of today’s top products.
It is praised among users for its battery life, GPS tracking and heart rate monitor, which also records oxygen saturation – the amount of oxygen your body absorbs.
Huawei Watch GT2
The software of the Huawei Watch GT2 has no less than fifteen sports modes, plus a stress function that reminds you in time to take a break. The Chinese manufacturer built in a more accurate heart rate monitor and a good GPS, but its real strength lies in its coaching programs, including many running programs.
Furthermore, the Huawei Watch GT 2 shines with a timeless design, excellent hardware performance, and useful software and features. The glass surface blends seamlessly into the rest of the device and Huawei’s proprietary Kirin A1 processor delivers computing power with low power consumption.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 has a heart rate sensor with eight diodes and the watch is waterproof according to the ip68 rating, so you can swim with it if you wish. Samsung sees the Galaxy Watch Active2 instead as a guide to improved well-being, offering insights into elements such as diet, exercise, stress level, sleep and mental health from real body measurements.
The smartwatch can track more than 39 workouts, including running, walking, cycling and swimming.
Apple Watch Series 5
New to the fifth generation of Apple’s smartwatch is a built-in compass. The smartwatch also has an improved heart rate monitor, which is the basis for things like cardio training but also monitors your stress level.
For the first time, Apple also brought the Series 5 to the Apple Watch from the App Store, the official download store for iOS apps so that you can get specific apps for your training schedule or health goals.
Fossil Gen 5 The Carlyle HR Black Silicone
This particular version of the Gen 5 of the American Fossil also has a – according to users – excellent heart rate monitor, which is suitable for both sporting and relaxing activities. Fossil claims that the new watches will operate for several days on a battery charger with the Extended Battery Mode option, displaying only notifications and measuring heart rate.
There is also a Time-Only Mode where only the time is displayed.
