Let’s think that you’ve just started running and found that everyone you know who runs already has a watch. This does not mean at all that you need to immediately drop everything and run for a purchase. Most likely, for the first steps it will be enough to install one of the free applications in phone and run around with your phone.
You can also rent a sports watch for men for a few days. So you will definitely understand whether it is worth buying them at all. This option is better than the first, but not available everywhere. And if you understand that training fascinates you more and more and you want to progress and participate in competitions, then you can choose the right sports watch.
Multisport functions: Useful for those involved in various sports. Before training, you can choose the type of activity and the watch will show information that will be useful. For example, for skiing, the watch itself will count the number of descents. For triathletes, there is a mode for switching from one sport to another.
Listening to music. Yes, and it happens. On some watches, you can download music and listen via Bluetooth headphones.
NFC- chip for contactless payments. Not quite a sports function, but also convenient – the watch can replace your plastic card.
Almost all modern sports watches have learned to transfer data via Bluetooth directly to a smartphone. But there may also be those that will have to be connected to a computer using a wire. There are many other features and “chips” in specific models, which we will consider a little lower, but these four are the key ones. That is, make sure you buy a watch with GPS, a heart rate monitor, a good battery, and from a reputable manufacturer.
