What are sports watches?
Sports watches combine the functions of a stopwatch, alarm and classic wristwatch into one technological timepiece with a tough, handsome and useful design. Sport watches are water resistant, shock resistant, and can help you improve your lap time.
Sport watches are made of plastic or rubber composites, while dress watches have bezels of polished metals. They were originally manufactured in black, but now they come in many colours from construction yellow to fire truck red.
Sport Watch Features:
- Time and date on a sports watch are in a digital LCD that is a liquid crystal display.
- Mode buttons change function and input settings.
- A chronometer is one of the key features of a sports watch.
- By pressing a button until “chrono” flashes, you can switch from date and time to stopwatch mode.
- Clock laps, mile markers, or your 5K run time, right down to split seconds.
- The stopwatch function of the sports watch saves individual lap times to memory while keeping track of accumulated time.
No matter if you are a casual user following a healthier lifestyle or an enthusiast looking to reach a new level of fitness, you need a sports watch in your workout routine. They will help you track, monitor, and improve your performance.
Sports watches can guide you through your workouts via on-screen animation to help you always feel your best and avoid injuries. They are also excellent smartwatches that can send you smartphone notifications.

What are second-hand and refurbished sports watches?
Refurbished sports watches start with a lightly used customer return that will clean and test with the same quality assurance testing and rigorous attention to detail as all new brand-new products. Once we are sure the product works to the high and exacting standards, their software will update and will be packed in a new box with all necessary accessories. Then they are ready for their new owner.
By choosing a refurbished or used sports watch at Faircado, you will be saving a lot of money. Even though these watches have been used or unboxed, we ensure that each of them has been checked by a certified refurbisher. Also, all of our refurbished sports watches and most of the used ones, have a 12-month warranty.
Our range of second-hand sports watches on Faircado are from the leading tech brands such as Samsung and Apple that are the perfect companion for your phone. They allow you to stay connected, even when you do not have your phone to hand.
There are many different refurbished sports watch models available at Faircado. Some are simple, others have more advanced features. You will find a range of certified pre-owned sports watches with discounted prices in perfect working order.
Why buy a refurbished sports watch?
Refurbished products repaired and restored to like-new condition. Usually, all parts and accessories that would have been included with the original product are present. Finally, through an inspection process, the refurbisher ensures that the product is clean and in working condition.
So, buying used and refurbished is a greener choice. Buying used is better for the environment as most of the environmental damage from our electronics comes from the manufacturing process. And by ensuring electronics stay out of landfills, you can help prevent toxins from leaching into streams and polluting the air and land.
Let’s think about it again! The minute you open a new device, it becomes used; so, the difference between a used and a new item can be negligible. You can get an item that is close to new but for a sizable discount. It is a win-win scenario.
Where to buy refurbished sports watches?
Because buying used items increases your risk, where you buy from is critical. Usually, original equipment manufacturers are a reliable source of refurbished products, though also the most expensive.
The first thing to ensure is that you are buying a sports watch from a reliable source. If you are planning to buy it online, read previous website visitors and their experiences. At Faircado, explore a vast range of quality second-hand and used sports watches from world-famous brands like Apple, Samsung, Garmin, Fitbit and Fossil.

information, you need to make the best purchase decision.
What should be aware of before buying a sports watch?
A good sports watch should rock a cool design that is suitable for daily wear, too. Remember that having your sports watch constantly on your wrist will allow you to take full advantage of its onboard sensors and tech; instead of using it only during workouts or on your pulse at the gym.
Every good sports watch should be able to track your heart rate well. Having a built-in GPS chip for mapping your outdoor exercises is important. Additional features like ECG capabilities or having a blood oxygen sensor are becoming increasingly common recently.
One of the important points to check when searching for a sports watch is the display quality. The best ones have sharp and vibrant panels. They are equally great for glancing at your stats during workouts, or emails.
Navigating through the features of a sports watch should be as easy as possible, so keep in mind that a touchscreen makes the process more seamless.
All sports watches come with a companion smartphone app. It will give you an easy-to-digest overview of all the data sensors collected during your workouts and help you make sense of the metrics. Their app is used for adjusting settings and keeping the watches up to date.
There are several important factors to consider before picking out your sports watch, with the most important being phone compatibility. For example, the Apple Watch is only compatible with an iPhone. Its competitors from Fitbit, Garmin, and Polar, however, can also play nice with Android phones. When shopping for a sports watch, you should also keep in mind the following criteria:
- Design and durability
- Onboard sensors
- Display quality
- Battery performance
- Ease of use and setup
