Do you want to know more about Heart Rate Monitors and GPS?

GPS is a mobile electronic device that guides users to a specific point or tells them what their geographical location is, by means of a satellite tracking system.

GPS is used for several areas, but the best known is for driving, where users use this device as a guide to help them reach a specific destination. Drivers enter their desired destination into the device and the GPS, in a matter of seconds, calculates the fastest route, the distance to travel and the approximate time it will take to arrive at that destination.

As well as for driving, this kind of device is being used increasingly for sport. For outdoor sports and long distances, especially in mountainous areas, GPS is very useful to avoid athletes from going off track or if they do get lost, to help them orient themselves and guide them back.

GPS used for sport are more compact than those used for other areas. In this way, portability is easier and they do not get in the way of physical activity. There are two major types of sports GPS: - Portable GPS. These are traditional GPS devices but smaller and specially designed for sports use. They include precise maps, compass, altimeter and barometer, among other functions. Their smaller dimensions make portability much more comfortable and simple. In addition, most can be fixed to supports that attach to the body of the athlete or vehicle, such as the bicycle. - GPS watch. These are watches with an integrated GPS system. They usually feature general maps, which are easy to read so they can be used in any sport. However, those designed for the practice of golf stand out because of their receptor function, which provides users with information about the distance between the point where they are and the front, centre and back of the course.

Garmin Vívomove HR Sport Silver w/ Blue Strap
Great quality watch
Absolutely love this watch, easy to setup and really stylish.
, the
Muvit IO Health Senior GPS SOS Smartwatch Black Red
Appearance dated but simple to use
Good concept works ok but the look and feel is very dated. However I get the concept it is simple to use just looks dated. You have to have a smart phone to set up, so many older people may struggle with. And unless they can many of the features are lost such as the history of blood and heart rate. Instructions are only in Spanish and Portuguese and finding a set in-line was impossible, had to download and convert to English. Features are great and will give piece of mind.

Great watch
It is a high quality watch and looks great. I have only had it a couple of days so haven't used it to it's full capacity.
