Garmin Instinct Watch

While there are a lot of smart watches on the market, Nelson chose this one as his favorite."What's cool about this is it has all the workout tracking features you'd expect from a smart watch," he notes, "but it's also super lightweight, and let's be honest, looks really good." Available in eight colors, the Instinct has heart rate tracking and a compass as well.
