▬ ABOUT THIS VIDEO ▬
Weightlifting workout test with the Apple Watch. In this video, I test the accuracy of the optical heart rate sensor during strength training exercises.
Overall, it did hold up well during my test. The Apple Watch is definitely a better running tool than weightlifting tool, but with an external HRM you should be just fine. Unfortunately, you will be 100% tethered to that phone (unless you use the Apple Workout app). Since I’m pretty much always bringing my phone running with me, having a companion on my wrist to consult for distance, pace, heart rate, and duration is nice, but this won’t at all be the case with CrossFit.
So would I buy this thing? Well, I did, but the verdict is still out on the Apple Watch. I will be posting a full review as well as a review from a fitness perspective.
Will this be one of the best smartwatches? Yes, definitely. Will it be one of the best activity trackers? Possibly. I’m still thinking pure play devices do it better.
