3 WATCHES FOR AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
KEEP MOTIVATED IN 2014 WITH THESE SPORTS WATCHES BY CASIO, TISSOT AND CITIZEN
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is undoubtedly to lose weight and get in shape. Buying the right gear can help motivate you and help your performance whether it’s at the gym or swimming pool.
A sports watch is a helpful piece of gear in almost any sport and here are three popular ones that are sure to help you achieve your goals:
Casio G-Shock watches are highly durable and as the name suggests, they are also shock resistant. This means you don’t have to be too careful when participating in hard-core sports like rugby because it will withstand those bumps and the black resin makes it scratchproof.
If you want to go for a swim, it is also water resistant to 200 metres. Other useful functions include 1/100th second chronograph, a daily alarm, dual time and an auto calendar that is programmed until the year 2039.
This Tissot PRS 200 watch is a popular piece. This is probably because it is a sophisticated and robust watch that happens to also be sporty.
It features an unidirectional bezel, a strap with a safety clasp and extension, and a chronograph function. The watch also features a tachymetre, a useful function on a sports watch that allows you to measure speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed.
The Red Arrows are the Royal Air Force’s official aerobatic team who are seen as ambassadors of Great Britain. They are also ambassadors of Citizen Watch UK.
This watch is in honour of their collaboration and is certainly a great timepiece. It is radio-controlled meaning the time is precise, has a 3rd Generation Skyhawk Atomic Flight chronograph, world time of 43 cities, 2 world time alarms, 1/100 second chronograph, 99 minute countdown timer, perpetual calendar and water resistance up to 200 metres.
