If you’re happiest in the ocean, consider outdoor watches with features that are best for water sports, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, and surfing. That, of course, includes water-resistant materials, as well as GPS and local tide data.

With rugged and durable construction, Timex outdoor watches are ready for adventure, but still carefully crafted for regular wear.
Cater to your adventures
Before purchasing a watch, consider your frequent and upcoming outdoor events to narrow your options to a timepiece with the perfect features and styles to suit your needs. Ask yourself questions, such as:
• Does it need to be water resistant for swimming laps or deep sea adventures?
• Do you need a timer or stopwatch for outdoor training?
• Do you want to wear the watch when you’re adventuring outdoors as well as taking it easy?
• Do you prefer a digital or traditional clock face?
• Are styles, colors or materials important factors?
Make a list of your must-have features – down to the details. The more specific you are, the easier it will be to make your decision. Once you find the perfect outdoor watch, you’ll have a trusty timepiece to support all of your adventurous endeavors.
