Jogging is delightful, at least mildly. Sometimes. If it isn’t actively hurting your knees, it can bring your mind to another place and give you a deeply rewarding feeling. Unfortunately, as a society, we’ve begun to put immense pressure on ourselves to track everything. What was our heartrate during the run? How far did when run? What was the altitude of the run? And so on. This burning curiosity and compulsion to know everything takes a lot of the restful joy right out of running. However, with an Apple Watch SE — now on sale at Walmart for just $149 — you can forget about the tracking and get back to the trekking. Take a look at the Apple Watch SE, which is $130 off (down from $279) by tapping the button below. Then, if you’re still curious, read on to see how an Apple Watch SE can track your runs and other workouts.

Why you should buy an Apple Watch SE

If you’ve glossed over casual watches for men as being a bit too simple, but aren’t exactly after a Rolex either, getting the Apple Watch SE on sale is a fantastic middle ground. So long as you have an iPhone 6s or later to pair it with, the Apple Watch SE will be your workout companion through thick and thin. From traditional uses like tracking your heart rate during running, to special modes that will finally help you add tai chi to your daily workout, the Apple Watch SE will improve your workout and inspire you to continue to try new things. At the very least, it will entertain you while you do the hard work by syncing up with your favorite songs, audiobooks, and those workout podcasts you keep meaning to listen to.

For example, if you take a great fall, your Apple Watch SE can contact emergency services for you (read the conditions on this one first, though, just to be safe). If you have cell signal, and don’t know these SOS signals, the Apple Watch SE can also serve as an emergency SOS in your times of greatest need.

Nikole Gessler vividly remembers how the CrossFit gyms referred to as "boxes" used to be. Back then, it was all dirty garages, shirtless guys, and the best CrossFit workouts that would have you praying for death before they were even over. "The first CrossFit gym I worked at had a puke bucket," she said. "Every gym had a puke bucket. That was just part of the culture."
