Which sports watch should I choose?

A good sports watch offers many possibilities for capturing, analyzing and improving your sport performances. Depending on your sport, you want to measure certain sports data. This way you can add more structure to your workouts and train more effectively. But how do you find the best sports watch for you? In this article I help you choose a sports watch.

What sports watch do I need for running?

Are you looking for the best running watch? Then there are a number of specifications that I would recommend. To measure your running performance, a watch with built-in GPS is essential. With GPS you can see your pace (speed) and distance traveled on your watch. You also view your route afterwards. In addition, a heart rate monitor is recommended. With this you measure how intensively you are working.

  • Measure distance, speed, route
  • Built-in GPS and heart rate monitor
  • View all sports data on 1 screen

What sports watch do I need for cycling?

Just like running, it is also useful to measure your heart rate, distance, speed and route during cycling. As an extra I would recommend a watch that is compatible with a cadence sensor. With this you specifically measure your rotation that makes your legs on the bike.

  • Measure distance, speed, route
  • Built-in GPS and heart rate monitor
  • Compatible with cadence sensor

What sports watch do I need for swimming?

A swimming watch must of course be waterproof. Furthermore, SWOLF tracking is a popular measuring instrument to improve your swimming efficiency. A watch with SWOLF tracking also has the possibility to enter the bath length. You also want to measure your speed and distance.

  • Waterproof
  • SWOLF tracking
  • Possibility to enter bath length

Are you a triathlete? Then you practice running, cycling and swimming. It is therefore important for a triathlon watch to be able to switch between different sport profiles at the touch of a button.

  • Measure distance, speed, route
  • Built-in GPS and heart rate monitor
  • Change button during exercise
  • Compatible with cadence sensor
  • SWOLF

Which sports watch do I need during golfing?

You see it more and more often on the golf course: a golf watch. The watch can promote your game. Here we recommend a watch with the following function:

  • Distance to obstacles on the track
  • Measure stroke distance
  • Built-in GPS
  • No heartbeat

Which sports watch do I need for mountain sports?

Do you like to measure your data in the mountains, while hiking, climbing or on the slopes? Then go for an outdoor watch. These watches have GPS and GLONASS to precisely determine your position and navigate. Furthermore, the watches have a barometric altimeter and a compass.

  • Built-in GPS and GLONASS
