Smartwatch maker Garmin has released the Instinct Esports Edition watch designed for esports players and streamers.
Esports players have to stay fit, too. Garmin’s new smartwatch would help them track their fitness levels, like physical athletes. If you get this watch, you can monitor your heart rate and stress while playing an intense video game.

Gizmodo reports that Garmin’s new watch is the Instinct Esports Edition. The company says it designed the watch for esports athletes. With the watch, gamers can track their heart rates and stress levels. Moreover, you also get a PC streaming tool called STR3AMUP!

Instinct Esports Specs
According to Gizmodo, the watch has a transflective screen. It’s also water-resistant up to 330 feet. Notably, this rating doubles the safe rating for swimmers. For sensors, the watch has a compass, a barometric altimeter, and a thermometer. Moreover, the watch has an accelerometer and a GPS.
Garmin adds that the watch tracks stress using the gap between heartbeats. The watch also gives you a stress score. However, Gizmodo says this score might not reflect how mental stress impacts a person’s physical condition. The watch could also track how much energy you have left based on your heart rate data.
