Challenge 2 - harder, wetter, faster, stronger
We’ve been investigating whether or not wearable technology can help you train for an assault course, by putting two men through a series of exhausting tasks. Check out our introduction to Tough Mudder for a bit more information.
Last time we had the boys run up a mountain of steps to test the accuracy of the Sony SmartWatch 3 and the Sony TalkBand's pedometers. The TalkBand managed to pip the SW3 to the post in the end, but don’t just take our word for it – check out the video here.
Now that we’re all caught up it’s on to today’s challenge – swimming. This time the Misfit Shine is going up against Sony’s SmartWatch 3 and we want to find out which one will be able to track 25 lengths of a 50m pool the closest.
For the non-mathematicians out there, 25m x 50 = 1,250m, or 1.25km. It was a close call, but it looks like the Sony SW3 has managed to take gold in this challenge. That made the final score at 1 - 1, but how will the boys and their tech deal with the main event, which is just around the corner? Tough Mudder... coming soon.
