Wearables for runners

Digit Expert | 17 Jan 2020

Wearables like smartwatches and fitness bands have been popular predominantly among fitness enthusiasts, particularly runners. Keeping this in mind, top brands have come up with wearables for runners that track the vital signs and biometrics of your body to know how your body responds while running as well as accurately calculating the distance covered over the course of a run. With several in-built fitness coaching apps in the wearables, you can now create your own fitness regimens and make the necessary changes in accordance with the readings shown in the wearable. In fact, some fitness bands even monitor the stress and strain that your body is going through to guide you through the workout plan. With such cool features, a wearable for runners is something that you must invest in if you are a fitness enthusiast. With that in mind, let us take a look at some of the best wearables for runners that are currently available in the market.

Honor Band 4 Running Edition

The Honor Band 4 is an affordable fitness band that focuses on tracking your vital signs specifically while running. Given its price segment, the band is loaded with features such as sleep monitoring, smart reminders, alarms, calls management and much more. However, the best feature of this particular fitness band is the fact that it comes with an attachment that lets you wear it on your shoe. It can then calculate the stride length, the impact time of each step, foot strike pattern and swing angle along with a line of stats provided to you while running. If you’re worried about stepping on puddles, or the wearable getting dirty when attached to your foot, don’t worry. Honor claims that the build is water-resistant up to 5ATM. The brand also claims that the band has a long battery life of 12 days, making it extremely handy for people who do not have the time to charge the device daily.

Garmin Forerunner 245

If you are looking for a feature-rich fitness wearable, then the Garmin Forerunner 245 should be one watch that you should definitely consider. It has a system that offers insights on your real-time performance and rates it accordingly, letting you know if you have been undertraining or going overboard with the training. The smart fitness band allows you to customise your workout plans with the help of an online coach. While running, it provides dynamic stats such as the length of the running stride, vertical ratio, ground contact time balance and much more. Also, you can listen to and download songs from Amazon Music, Spotify and Deezer, making this wearable perfect for people who love to have their share of entertainment while running.

Fitbit Iconic

The Fitbit Iconic has a lot of features that benefit different fitness regimens like running, swimming, working out in the gym, walking and so on. With a myriad of features, the fitness band is truly a value for money product. You can store 300 songs in the watch and even download and play songs from the Pandora app, making the process of working out or running a lot more fun. You can also manage your sports apps, weather notification, calls and more, which is why it’s ideal for people who are always on the go.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2

If you are looking for a beautiful fitness band with a great display, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 fits the bill quite well thanks to its Super AMOLED display. This efficient display system can be quite beneficial when you’re running on sunny days, as you can expect to combat the glare pretty well.

Furthermore, it has an always-on display with customisable watch faces. With the fitness coach feature available in the smartwatch, you get real-time fitness advice while you run or perform other workout routines. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 has its own line of fitness apps for you to download for additional guidance. However, it also allows people to download third party apps. You can customise the style of the watch as the band comes in three different colours.
