Before wearable technology, our adventures were always untracked, but still fulfilling. While we got the satisfaction of the adventure, we never knew how our body had benefited from our expeditions.  Everything changed when wearable technology from Fitbit, Samsung, Garmin and more started populating the fitness scene with their advanced electronics, high-functioning software and durable builds. Let’s take a look at some of the finest in wearable technologies available right here at Sun & Sand Sports.


Incredibly slim with a waterproof construction, the FitBit Flex 2 is the latest in the on-going domination of the fitness tracker market by this tech giant. Its all-day tracking will measure your every step, the distance you’ve travelled, the calories you’ve burned and it even monitors your hourly activities with time spent stationary. Adding to that is its SmartTrack technology that tracks activities such as sports, running, and aerobics, while the Auto Sleep Tracking records how well and long you’ve slept. With a battery life that can last up to 5 days, you won’t have to worry about recharging it when braving the outdoors.


Garmin has always delivered innovative GPS technology across broad platforms to use in automotive, marine, aviation, outdoor and other sports activities. Not to be left behind in the wave of fitness trackers and wearable technology, Garmin too used their expertise, innovative ethos, and craftsmanship to bring you the Garmin Vivoactive HR Watch. Fitted with a built-in GPS, wrist heart-rate technology, and built-in sports apps that track your progress through your training, swimming and adventure activities, this Garmin smart watch also boasts a sunlight-readable, high-resolution colour touchscreen, keeping you adventuring on without letting even the sun’s bright rays get in your way.


From weekends to the great outdoors, the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smart watch fits perfectly into any situation with its sleek yet sturdy design that acts like a classy watch and a smart watch simultaneously, as and when needed. Featuring an intuitive bezel dial control that allows you to answer or reject calls with its built-in speaker, control the volume, turn off alarms, display brightness or even browse apps and check your mail, this watch ensures that you won’t have to whip your phone out as you explore uncharted lands, hands-free. This watch has a super AMOLED screen with preloaded watch faces, giving you the type of dial you prefer whilst the built-in GPS tracks your stats with built-in sensors to collect data for your activities. Add to all of this a 4-day battery life and your outdoor excursions will go by smoother than ever before.


The Samsung Gear IconX Earbud is a different kind of wearable technology as compared to the rest of the items on this list. Designed with a snug and secure fit, this watch features a fitness tracker that measures and then updates you on how much you’ve travelled, your speed, the duration spent travelling, your heart-rate and even the calories you’ve burned through a voice guide – yes, all of this from a pair of earbuds. These earbuds feature touch controls and an in-built music player so you can jam to your favourite music as you move.

So gear up with some of the best in wearable technology at the Sun & Sand Sports online store and have your gear delivered right to your doorstep. Also subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated on the latest in sportswear and trends.
