Do you want to know more about GPS?

The GPS is an electronic , mobile device that guides the user to a specific point or tells him what his geographical position is, by means of a satellite tracking system.

The GPS is used for several areas, but the best known is the driving of vehicles, where users use this device as a guide to reach a specific destination. The driver enters in the device the place you want to reach and the GPS , in a matter of seconds, calculates the fastest way, the distance that will be traveled and the approximate time it will take to arrive.

Another area that increasingly uses this device is the sport. For outdoor sports and long distances, especially in mountainous areas, GPS is very useful so as not to get sidetracked and, in case of loss, to know where you are and how to get back.

The GPS used for sport have smaller dimensions than those used for other areas. In this way, portability is easier and does not disturb physical activity. There are two major types of sports GPS: - Portable GPS . They are the traditional GPS devices but smaller and specially designed for sports. They include precise maps, compass, altimeter and barometer, among other functions. Its small dimensions make portability much more comfortable and simple. In addition, most can be hooked to supports that attach to the body of the athlete or vehicle, such as the bicycle. - GPS watch . They are watches that have integrated a GPS system. They usually carry general maps, 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 the user with information on the distance between the point where he is and the front, center and back of the greens.

For swimmers, there are specific GPS devices specially designed for the practice of this sport. They allow to be submerged in the water, they record data of number and frequency of stroke, efficiency of the stroke, etc.

Garmin Forerunner 745 Black
Lightweight and powerful device, perfect for multisport activities.
I have been using the Garmin Forerunner 745 for a few weeks now and I am very satisfied with the purchase. Before buying the watch, I hesitated between several models, limiting the search to models that allowed for heart rate counting underwater and that had navigation options (route tracking). Of all the options, I chose the Forerunner 745. I am not used to wear a watch and I wanted a lightweight device (only 47g). Also other factors that helped the choice is the very complete Garmin Connect application and the security options (Livetrack) that the watch incorporates (important if you go alone). After some weeks of use, everything has seemed correct to me. All the metrics obtained are reasonable. Maybe, sometimes more information than I need. Perhaps, if I had to look for something to improve, it would be the battery life. In normal use (1 hr/day activity with GPS) I have charged the watch every 5 days. Regarding the Deporvillage service, I am satisfied with the purchase, the watch arrived on time and in perfect condition. I will repeat again.

Coros Vertix GPS Silver Orange
7 days intensive use and still 29% battery left
It is of high quality and it completely meets my requirements. Only a bit unfortunate that I bought it one week before the release of the Vertix 2. Still I am very happy to have such a good inside of my input, results and recovery.

Garmin Vívoactive 4S Grey with Grey Strap
Excellent Watch
Had a competitor brand until I bought this. Has GPS built in, alarms, garmin pay and you can put your own clockface and multiple apps on it. Looks great. Chose this model over the black one. Personally, I'd prefer the black strap but that's just aesthetics
