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
