Alpine Skiing Watches

Alpine skiing is a very explosive sport requiring lots of strength training with a smaller balance of endurance. Being able to measure your recovery after the intense anaerobic effort represented by a ski run will help you time your recovery.

The use of heart rate monitors for such a sport is really quite simple: When you begin to stop recovering back to a recovered heart rate it is time to take a break.

The intense dry land training with stairs, sprints and weight training demands heart rate monitors that can tell you when you have appropriately recovered to begin your next repetition or your next set of stairs. This type of bursting activity takes your pulse from near resting to extremely high levels near your maximum heart rate.

For a recreational skier hoping to get in shape for the ski season these heart monitors help guide you to build up a base and then workout at the correct intensity as the season approaches.

Once the ski season starts you might consider a heart rate monitor like the Suunto Ambit 2 with heart rate because it does something no other heart rate monitors will do: it tracks your vertical feet skied every day because it has a built-in barometric altimeter. It will even track your cumulative total vertical feet skied for an entire season - how cool is that?

It also shows you your altitude and has a built-in compass and a barometer that predicts oncoming weather for those who like to ski the backcountry.

The Suunto Ambit 2 with heart rate is our absolute number one favorite choice for skiers hands down. Of course, having said that, there are several other heart rate monitors, like the Garmin fenix that we feel are well suited to skiing and the types of conditioning it demands.

If you are a skier, we speak your language, and our founder, Rusty Squire, was a former member of the U.S. Ski Team, a three-time All American and the first skier in history to ski more than 300,000 vertical feet in one day. When we say we understand skiing, we mean it.
