Sport Watches

multi-function, high-tech sport watch Watches are small, portable clocks that display the current time.  They may be worn on the wrist or hung from a watch clip.  While water-resistant watches, waterproof dive watches, and stopwatches have been around for more than 70 years, it has been only during the last 50 years that these features have been combined into a single wristwatch, giving rise to a whole new watch category — the sport watch.  Rather than being high fashion, dress watches, these sport watches are often designed for ruggedness and casual comfort.  Many of these watches boast digital displays as well.

sport watch Instead of having bands of metal or leather, sport watches generally have bands fashioned from man-made materials, such as nylon or plastic, which resist sweat, water, and the elements.  These watches are often designed to be shock-resistant, so that they can take a lot of punishment without breaking.  In the past, athletes removed their watches before participating in their sport, but with the availability of sport watches, athletes can now exercise and keep track of the time and their activities.

Whatever your sport or outdoor activity, there is probably a sport watch designed to fit your needs.  The informative references on enable you to learn about the watchmaking industry and research a broad range of sport watches offered by watch manufacturers and specialty watchmakers.
