Cross-Country Skiing Watches

Back in the late 1970's Polar handed out the very first heart rate monitors to member of the Norwegian National cross-country ski team and the world of athletic measurement has never been the same since. I saw some of the original Polar's on Norwegian members of the University of Utah ski team when I competed in the NCAA Championships in the early 1980's. Of course, they have become much more sophisticated today.

Today's cross-country skiers can measure heart rate, speed, distance, and get calories burned with modern GPS watch technology from Suunto, Garmin or Polar heart rate monitors. GPS technology allows you to correlate your pace with your heart rate helping to further define the appropriate pace that keeps you just under your anaerobic threshold.

You can also download and track all of your heart rate, distance and speed data to analyze your incremental fitness improvements throughout the season. Many of the GPS watches like the Suunto Ambit 2 and Garmin Forerunner 620 can map, shoot precise altitudes, pace data and more for your entire workout, they even offer recovery times.

Cross-country skiing is one of the toughest sports going because it test both upper and lower body strength to the limit with aerobic capacity being an absolute key ingredient. Whether you classic ski in parallel tracks or skate ski, there is a GPS watch, as well as heart rate monitors that should fit your needs perfectly.

Our favorite cross-country skiing watches include the Suunto Ambit 2, Garmin 910XT, Garmin Forerunner 620, Polar V800 and the new TomTom Multisport GPS watch. Each GPS watch in this group will deliver great heart rate data, calories, speed, distance and allow you to download your data to a computer for subsequent analysis.

All of these watches have the GPS fully integrated right into the watch.

All of these watches will allow you to set up specific heart rate zones for base building, interval training and offer multiple zones that are user customized. With good data and feedback on many variables you can customize your training by using your own biometric feedback as a gauge.

Cross-country skiing is tough, but getting better just got easier with GPS watches technology.
