Putting on skis
- Apr 17, 2018
Curious if y'all have a specific watch that you use for skiing that actually helps you in ways other than just telling you the time.
Me too!! Freestyle stainless steel with a face, not digital! I had a Timex ski watch too. It's in a drawer, not sure if it works. I remember having a problem after a battery change. It was great when I was teaching, as you could wear it on the outside of your jacket. Had to be back at the bell on the hour!!I must need a new watch; mine doesn't tell me anything I have to read it!
Yeah, I use a Vivoactive as well, I use the built-in ski tracking though, it all uploads to Garmin Connect or Strava, and I use the live tracking too.Garmin Vivoactive w/ the Ski Tracker app.......pretty much just use it to tell me my top speed at the end of the day
I used to pick up one of these each year before I started wearing an Apple watch. I clipped it to my belt loop and it worked great when coaching and I needed to keep track of time but didn't want to pull out my phone constantly.I've actually just been wanting a cheap, simple watch for telling time, that I can access without having to reach into a pocket or pulling off a glove. I'm yet to find a good solution. My initial idea was to find something with a clip that I could clip to a zipper pull or backpack strap for easy access, but I couldn't find any that looked like they'd work well.
