Advertisement Here's our pick of the top sports watches this year When it comes to improving your sporting performance, knowledge is power. Elite athletes have teams of coaches and performance experts logging and analysing their every move; for the rest of us, a sports watch is the next best thing. They use technology that even elites could only have dreamed of a few decades ago, and can track pretty much every popular sport. As well as basic information like training time and distance covered, they can provide in-depth analysis of your technique, heart rate, and training effect, and some will even coach you on the go.
Although it may not be as sophisticated as other sport watches, it is Bluetooth enabled allowing you to link it to applications like Stava on your phone and get your full workout report. With features like drill logs and time sets, it can accurately record essential swimming data like pace, pool length, and stroke count.
During swimming, swiftness in motion is important, and this watch is built to enhance just that. It is slim enough to easily cut through water and achieve the much-desired speed. It is also easy to use and read by swimmers of all levels.
It is tailor-made to guide you through a number of different workout sessions including swimming which is made possible with its waterproof body. The Samsung Gear Sport runs on the patented Tizen platform which comes with a variety of apps for improved functionality.
It also features a generous display size, decent resolution, 4GB of internal storage, and a reliable 1GHz dual-core processor.
It is automated to recognize over 80 different sports and can be linked to your smartphone via Bluetooth where you can receive essential notifications about your workout.
Certainly, one of the best sport watches for tracking purposes.
