Which is the Best Garmin Watch for Swimming?

Whilst most Garmin Smart Watches are water-resistant, it’s vital that your watch is equipped with the best technology if you plan on using it underwater. We have found that the best piece for swimming, snorkelling and other water sports is the Garmin Tactix Delta Solar Edition. This model can be purchased for £999 or from £14.99 per month at 0% finance.

With a water resistance of up to 100m, this high-quality, durable watch is the perfect companion for your wrist in all weathers.

The heart rate monitor works underwater to accurately check your performance levels with the option to access more data by linking with your Apple or Android device.

Which is the Best Garmin Watch for Cycling?

For the second time in this article, the Garmin Fenix 6 is reigning champion as our top-pick. However, this time, we have decided that if you’ll typically be using your watch whilst cycling, their Solar Edition is your ideal match (you can buy it for £999 or from £14.99 per month at 0% finance).

Perfect for consecutive days spent outdoors, this smartwatch features a Power GlassTM solar charging lens as well as an internal, rechargeable lithium battery. Leave the tangled wires and charging banks at home when you pack for your cycling trips, as this watch can provide up to 10.5 days of battery life when charging in smartwatch mode!

Additional features include a Pulse Ox1 Sensor, which monitors your body’s oxygen levels in higher altitudes, and multiple health trackers including heart monitors and even a stress score. With a variety of sizes and styles to fit everyone’s preferences, this luxury watch is a great choice for those of you who feel at home on two wheels.
