The New Year’s resolutions don’t get much cooler than this year’s New For 2021: Best Men’s Smart Watch. So what should a man be looking for? A watch that says “I’m ready to take action!” or one that can tell time? Is it all about style, is it about function?
These are some interesting questions that deserve answers. The first criteria that come to my mind when considering the question of which watch is the best are functionality. Functionality is obviously going to vary based on the purpose and the style of watch that you are considering. If I’m walking down the street and want to know my next arriving flight destination, I want a watch that I can use and read the time in. And that means a lot more than just telling the time.
Men’s watches are made for more than just telling time. They are used to indicate important milestones, such as the number of workouts that have been accomplished, the calories burned, the mileage covered, and even record keeping. As far as these types of watches go, there are tons to choose from. Some of them sport big, colorful faces while others are more understated. Some are even packed with features. It can get a little confusing, so let me help.
The first thing to look at when choosing a new watch for the man in your life is fitness. Men tend to work out more than women, so they require a watch that is more durable and can withstand heavyweights. Because men have to work out more frequently, more high-end watches are becoming available that can withstand high-rep workouts. You may be asking yourself what I mean by that. Well, let’s take a look at a few different watches that will fit the bill.
First, let’s look at Invicta 9937B. This model is water-resistant for up to thirty minutes, which means that you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged while you are swimming or taking a dive into the ocean. While this might sound good enough on paper, it doesn’t live up to its promise when you buy an Invicta watch. The band that holds up the watch is also pretty thin, which makes it easy to lose your place in the sea (ala BMW’s). So, it’s best to choose a rugged model that doesn’t have a lot of frills and has a proper price tag.
The Casio Invicta Blue version is also pretty good. It’s not water-resistant or wind-resistant, but it does the job. It has a timer that can be set to give you an exact number of hours of time spent working out. It has a well-built clasp that holds the watch firmly in place without having to constantly struggle with it.
Another good watch is the Polar F-12 Fitness Black Watch. This one has some nice features, including a heart rate monitor and thermometer. It also comes with a self-calibrating fitness monitor, making it easier for you to work out more intensely and burn more calories. The watch can also track your total time in the distance, calories burned, speed, and the distance traveled during a workout.
For some reason, the Seiko Women’s Invicta Sapporo is considered to be the best women’s watch. Some may consider it overpriced, but then again, it’s probably because people simply aren’t aware of the other options. In general, these two watches do a good job of catering to men’s needs while keeping it interesting for women to wear. If your preference is for a fitness-oriented watch, these two should suffice.
