With the advent of technology, every industry has seen advancements of great magnitude. The watchmaking industry is no different, as people have changed their preferences with regard to how they want their watches to look as well as to what features they want in the watches.
After an era of having junk food and following a lackadaisical lifestyle, most people are beginning to adopt a healthier lifestyle, one where fitness is primary. Some folks visit gyms while most of them take up a certain sport. Although not in the case of all, some of the sports require the presence of a good sports watch to help them meet their goals.
In this article, we will be looking at five such sports where SF watches will be extremely beneficial.
#1 – Running
Running is a sport that does not happen without making use of time. Whether it be a sprint or a marathon, time is of essence in this sport. From the start line to the finish line, each move made by the athlete will play a role in determining how well he or she has performed.
SF watches, with their features, will be a very beneficial tool alongside an athlete while he or she practices. The Stop Watch feature will help the athlete keep a record of the time taken to complete the race. Even if the athlete wants to practice late into the night and has less lighting, the Backlight feature will come in handy. In addition, the SF watches’ ability to sustain any mechanical impact will be crucial in holding good no matter how much effort is put in by the athlete.
#2 – Kayaking
Kayaking is one of the most popular water adventure sports in the world right now with people thronging to take up the sport. It has been a part of the Summer Olympics since 1936 in Berlin and has been a vital part of the mega-event since then.
In the Olympics, kayaking comes in three different lengths for the sprint variant – 200m, 500m and 1000m. Each team can include either one person, two people or four people. While attempting to finish the course quickly, kayakers will need to maintain good time.
The sport is characterized by Rocky hurdles and strong currents, SF watches are built to for such extreme conditions making it a perfect accessory for this sport.
#3 – Motocross
Having originally been named as Scrambles Racing, Motocross has come a long way since being a pastime sport in the United Kingdom during the early 20th century. It is one of the most exciting sports to watch as riders take risks and put their lives on the line in a quest to earn various plaudits.
Being an off-road event mostly, motocross riders will benefit greatly from the sporty SF watches that can withstand any type of physical shock that the rider and the bike will be subject to during the race. Riders will also need the feature of the stop watch that will help them time their laps in preparations for race trials.
#4 – Diving
Diving is another aquatic sport for which an SF watch is perfect. The sport has three disciplines, namely the 1m and 3m springboards and the platform. The platform discipline can be performed from heights of 5m, 7.5m, 9m or 10m, as per the diver’s wish. These divers would ideally go around 4-5m below into the pool which SF watches would easily manage.
Diving also includes the leisurely activity of deep sea diving where divers go very deep below sea level. SF watches have a water resistance rating of 10 ATM. ATM refers to atmospheres, which is used to measure the pressure level. 1 ATM is the pressure that is at sea level, hence, 10 ATM would mean that the watch can take pressure that is 10 times the amount that is found at sea level. This is equivalent to going 100 metres underwater.
#5 – Surfing
Surfing is a sport that requires great skill and comes as a result of hours of practice. A surfer standing up on a surfboard and riding the wave is without doubt a sight to behold for spectators. However, with the surfer constantly in the water, a watch used by the surfer would need to be able to endure the constant spraying of water. Here is where an SF watch would be convenient as the water resistance offered by the watch is second to none.
In case the surfer is riding a huge wave that ultimately crashes and the surfer has to swim back to the shore, the 10 ATM resistance rating will ensure that the watch is intact. The watch will also be able to handle any amount of force that the surfer faces from the waves owing to resistance to mechanical shock.
