Racking up close to fifty podium finishes and consistently ranking at the top of his age group, Coach Don Velasco or “Coach Don” is an authority in the Philippine triathlon scene. With his passion for the sport that took him from the classrooms to training gyms, he is now taking on an interesting route towards successfully competing in triathlons: science. Today, Coach Don has established his own research-backed training lab to better the way Filipino triathletes train and race.
A big fan of logging each workout and meticulously comparing and tracking his training data, the Samsung Gear Sport is Coach Don’s ultimate companion in keeping count of the numbers behind every performance, pushing him to always beat his last record. For him, the best way to train is to listen to the numbers, and the Gear Sport allows him to do just that, with its capability to track his progress. Now, it’s easier for him to zoom in on which areas need more focus and note which areas have reflected progress.
The Samsung Gear Sport, with its ability to help dedicated athletes like Coach Don keep track of their personal progresses – from motion heart rates in the tracks to lap times in the pool – is the ideal companion in anyone’s personal fitness and lifestyle journey. Packed with features and seamlessly integrating with additional fitness tools and apps, the Gear Sport motivates you to move more, eat better, and live an overall healthier life.
Moreover, this smart watch also provides timely fitness suggestions, such as a reminder to get up and stretch in the middle of a long flight. Take it straight from the running track to the pool—the watch is water resistant up to 50 meters. When you’re done, eat a meal packed with the nutrients you need, and stay on top of your calorie intake with the Gear Sport’s calorie tracker. Once training is done, head straight to that business meeting, or a hangout with your friends—the watch’s sleek design and customizable straps make sure you’re just as stylish as you are on top of your #FitnessGoals.
