An introduction to Tough Mudder
We wanted to know if using fitness wearables and mobile tech can help prepare for what’s recognised as one of the world’s most gruelling assault courses.
That’s why we’ve invited two tech fans to compete at Tough Mudder in June, only aided by their Sony Xperia Z3 and Smartwatch 3.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Tough Mudder, it’s an event that’s organised all over the world. Participants have to work in teams to complete the 12-mile course, facing challenging obstacles every mile.
To help with the boys’ training, we’re going to be setting them some extreme tests to see how their Sony Smartwatches compare to some of the other wearable tech available at Carphone Warehouse.
Through a series of tests, we’re going to pit them against each other, to find out which one wearable is the most accurate and reliable.
