Far from the days of playing Pong on a Sega, gaming has evolved into a whole other beast over the years. Esports now make up a multi-billion dollar industry and the competition is grueling. Over a million players log in to games such as League of Legends and Fortnite everyday, and the very best of them participate in tournaments with even larger prize pools.
Becoming a professional gamer requires a lot of practice. Obviously. But that's not all there is to it. Professional gamers lead a lifestyle similar to traditional athletes. They have diet regimens, workout plans, and physical therapy sessions — all to ensure peak performance levels come showtime.
The Garmin Instinct Esports is a way to take your game to the next level. It's a smartwatch designed to track heart rate, stress, and fatigue levels during play. These are factors which, when monitored and managed properly, can give you the edge of a cool head during a heated session.
Built up to military standards, the Instinct Esports is both, lightweight and durable. It comes equipped with a high-contrast display and a sleek interface which tells you all you need to know at first glance. With up to 80 hours of battery life in esports mode, and fourteen days in smartwatch mode, charging needs and inopportune moments are unlikely to coincide.
Users may sync their activity to the Garmin Connect app to store data over time and analyze trends. This can help them find out how they react to different gaming situations. The Instinct Esports also caters to need of live-streamers, allowing them to broadcast metrics to their audience using STR3AMUP!.
Despite the name, this isn't just a gaming watch either. It features over twenty additional modes to cover for all fitness needs — whether you're in the mood for a mountain climb, an open water swim, or anything in between. There are sensors to warn for an impending storm and a GPS which syncs to the current time. In addition, the GLONASS and Galileo satellite systems make sure you can't get lost even if you tried.
