Indestructible in water and on land – the best sports watches for triathlon

Triathlon is a sports competition that requires perfect preparation. In addition to taking care of the physical aspects, you should also think about equipping yourself with the right accessories. Among the best equipment for athletes can certainly include popular smartwatches. Which smartwatches will be the best when it comes to practicing triathlon?

Garmin Fenix 6 Pro 

An excellent choice for intense athletes in training. The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro smartwatch features the WorkPro function, which allows you to adjust your running pace much better to the slope of the course. Another interesting feature is Trendline – the function generates the best possible return route. The makers of the watch have also thought about the safety of the user. This is evidenced by functions for calling for help and accident detection. The equipment still has an extremely accurate pulse oximeter for measuring heart rate in water. The whole is complemented by high battery life, which holds up to 14 days.

Garmin Forerunner 945

As the name suggests, this is a smartwatch tailored for runners. Among other things, the Garmin Forerunner 945 is characterized by its light weight and a screen that is more visible the brighter it is outside. The gadget has a heart rate monitor and pulse oximeter, and shows detailed information like running rhythm, stride length, vertical deviation and ground contact time. What’s more, if necessary, the watch is able to provide training tips and even determine the optimal time for recovery. This elegant smartwatch also features water resistance (50m), and its battery allows it to function in watch mode for up to 14 days.

Suunto 9

The biggest advantage of the Suunto 9 smartwatch is great functioning under water – it has a waterproof rating of up to 100m! In addition, the gadget offers extremely efficient switching between different disciplines – a feature that is sure to appeal to triathletes. The device is also equipped with a Workout Log and other sports functions. One may have some reservations when it comes to the battery, which allows only 7 days of use in normal mode. 

Polar Vantage V2

A smartwatch with so little weight that you can easily forget you have it on your hand. Polar Vantage V2 is another gadget featuring high water resistance (100m), which will be great for triathlon activities. The device supports more than 130 different sports activities, so any exercise lover is sure to find something for himself. The advantage of this watch is the built-in tests for cycling, running and leg recovery. They allow you to determine the right time for rest and develop the optimal intensity of training. The biggest plus of the gadget, however, is the extremely long-lasting battery that allows up to 40 hours of use!

Polar Ignite

The best choice for those who appreciate simple and inexpensive solutions. Polar Ignite, in addition to its classic design, also offers support for 130 sports and, if necessary, the creation of a suitable training plan. Its specific design makes it easy to swim with it despite its relatively low water resistance (30m). However, the battery may be an obstacle – in training mode the gadget is able to function for a mere 17 hours, while in watch mode for up to 5 days.
