Whether you’re just getting started on your fitness journey or you’re looking for that extra edge to take your training to the next level, a watch for exercise is the ideal health & fitness tool. It can help you keep your goals in sight for more focused workouts and better performance. A sports watch combines a range of features to help you measure and monitor your stats as you train, so you can tailor your workouts and review your progress. GPS watches take things a step further by locating where you are during walks, jogs, or all-out sprints to keep you on track while you’re pounding the pavement. You can map out your routes ahead of time or sync your smart fitness watch to your smartphone. Later, you can review the results to see exactly how far you went and what elevation gains you had, if any. Some GPS watches have a touch screen with a keypad lock so you can easily view stats without inadvertently changing your settings. Depending on what statistics are important to you, there are different models and price points to meet your needs. If you like to reach a certain zone of effort during exercise, choose a watch with heart rate monitor capabilities to see when you should kick it up a notch. Whatever you’re doing to work up a sweat, Best Buy has sports watches for men and sport watches for women in our stores and online.
Find the best watch for fitness of all kinds.
Before you start looking for a new fitness tracking watch, consider what types of activities you’ll be doing to determine which brand and model is the best sports watch for you. If you plan to take your sports watch on rugged outings or you might feel like spontaneously jumping in a lake on an especially hot day, opt for a water-resistant fitness watch that can handle any situation on land or by sea. Avid joggers and walkers rely on running watches to help them keep pace during races and even when they’re training by communicating their speed and average mph overall. Sprinters also appreciate this type of exercise watch for speed workouts because they can deliver splits simply by pushing a button. For families who like to go hiking on wilderness trails, there are GPS watches with integrated base maps included as well as the ability to upload new maps to help you find your way on adventures in unfamiliar territory. Plus, GPS watches can signal your location to others if you happen to get lost. Are you an athlete that likes to cross-train by incorporating several types of exercise to work new muscles? A multisport watch that can record exercise at different caloric rates is right up your alley. Lots of people need music to motivate them while they’re feeling the burn, which is why many fitness watches have Bluetooth capabilities so you can pair them with your wireless headphones to pump up the jam and pump iron at the same time.
