January can be a bit of a depressing month. Christmas is over, everyone’s back to work and the weather is frightfully cold at best. In other words, it’s a great time to take a trip abroad, and for the more adventurous of us there is nothing better than a ski holiday. In light of that, today’s post takes a look at some of the must-have tech products that will keep you connected when hitting the slopes.
Garmin Vivoactive HR
The Garmin Vivoactive HR is a GPS-enabled smartwatch designed for those who enjoy challenging sports like cycling, swimming and of course, skiing. The perfect watch to wear in demanding situations, the Vivoactive HR features a sunlight-readable, high-resolution touchscreen and built-in sports apps that keep track of every step you take. Its Elevate™ heart rate technology measures heart rate from the wrist, providing detailed information about calories burned and activity intensity. With a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 8 days in watch/activity mode, or up to 13 hours when using the GPS, the Garmin Vivoactive HR not only measures how well you ski but also ensures you never lose your way.
