Our Coaches Tested Amazfit’s New Watch. Here Are 3 Reasons You Should, Too.
Tracking and maintaining optimum training while constantly trying to improve your performance every day is crucial. Athletes of all abilities want to access the data on how they are getting better every day while keeping up with constant, inevitable lifestyle changes. Wearable technology is an excellent way to track that performance progress because it is increasingly becoming available in different, more convenient forms. This form of technology has proved to be beneficial for our Spartan obstacle course racers, especially the Amazfit watch. A watch can be worn every day, whether you are training for your next race or simply going to work. The Amazfit watch has proven itself capable of allowing people to do both while still looking their best in both environments.

Jennifer Taylor is a mountain biker and a Spartan race ultrarunner who enjoys using her Amazfit watch on her difficult, lengthy journeys. It takes plenty of time to get up a mountain with a bike in tow, and while descending generally takes up less time, Jennifer notices that her watch is able to get her through the entire journey on a single charge.
