Why a sports watch is a great investment – even if you hate sports


A few days ago, Garmin released its latest feature-packed watch – one designed not for running, boating or driving, but for gaming. The Garmin Instinct Esports Edition monitors your heart rate and stress levels, and can stream them live to your audience during an intense competition.

Once you’re away from the screen, sleep tracking and Garmin’s Body Battery function help make sure you’re taking good care of yourself and allowing yourself enough time to relax and recharge so you can stay at the top of your game the following day.

It’s a really interesting idea, and shows that a fully fledged sports watch (one that does more than just simple step-tracking) isn’t just useful for people whose idea of fun involves Lycra and sweat.

That’s something I’ve found for myself recently. I usually run several times a week, lead a local running club and join in regular spin sessions at the gym, but on a walking holiday a few weeks ago, I managed to break my left ankle in a pothole.
