If you are a fan of sports excitement, then sports watches are constructed especially for you. Models in this category are equipped with many useful functions. These include a chronograph (stopwatch), timer, as well as a heart rate monitor, pedometer or GPS tracking functions. Sports watches are appreciated by active people who are constantly on the move, because of their handy functions, but also their striking, dynamic appearance.
Every sports watch should have a function that is considered a staple - that is, a chronograph, also known as a stopwatch. In models with a digital display, it activates with the help of appropriate buttons located on the side of the envelope. And the accuracy of the stopwatch is measured in tenths and even thousandths of a second. Analog sports watches have an additional ring and a chronograph pointer, which allows you to indicate the results with the accuracy of a second.
Watch with a heart rate monitor
A heart rate monitor, which appears in more advanced models of sports watches, such as the Suunto Ambit or TomTom Runner, allows you to measure your pulse while running. They use sensors in the watch's lid or a dedicated HR belt worn on the chest, paired with the timepiece. A GPS-enabled sports watch tracks your running route and, in the case of some solutions, allows you to display and analyze parameters using a dedicated smartphone app.
For the most discerning users, Suunto watches offer advanced software with training programs that allow the timepiece to be used as a partner during more than 40 different sports, from running, swimming, intervals or triathlon.
Popular sports watch brands
Popular sports watches that are consistently popular include a wide range of Casio G-Shock wristwatches and Suunto's Ambit and Spartan series. Also noteworthy are the Nautica and Scuderia Ferrari models. For lovers of a more elegant sports watch look, but with useful functions for everyday activities, there are Casio Edifice or Citizen Eco-Drive watches, numerous Seiko models, or more fashionable models by Traser or Lorus.
