HOW TO MAKE PROGRESS AT RUNNING WITH A GPS WATCH?

A must-have accessory in the perfect jogger/trail runner gear, GPS watches provide a detailed record of your performances and make you aware of your achievements, from your first strides to your best results.

 

We are going to explain why a GPS watch can help you get better at running.

1. GET TO KNOW YOUR BODY

Sports progress involves accurate measurement of performances.

 

Indeed, measuring data such as the running time, speed, or pace or the distance travelled will help you diagnose your fitness condition so that you can set accurate and achievable goals.

 

And, thanks to the built-in algorithms and to the dedicated app, you can follow your progress month by month, and year by year.

Compare your various sessions to then get insight on the progress made and be even more motivated!

 

And to learn how to better manage your efforts when exercising, opt for a GPS watch that features a heart rate monitor: by tracking your heart rate in real time, you can stay in a heart rate zone that matches your set goals.

In a word: keep challenging yourself while respecting your personal pace.

 

And since the function is available on most mobile apps, why not challenge your friends too?

2. TO MAKE PROGRESS, GO FOR INTERVAL TRAINING

Easy enough for beginners and praised by the most advanced athletes, interval training is a excellent way to get better at running!

 

It is a training method where runners vary their paces, alternating between sprint, recovery and jog phases.

 

The GPS watch is then the perfect coach: it lets you set up a target zone for speed, pace or heart rate and sounds an alert when you are out of this zone.

 

The benefits of interval training? It will help improve your muscular and cardiovascular fitness, gain endurance/speed and refine your stride.

Not to mention that interval training is less monotonous than standard training…
