5 Watches to Suit Every Type of Person
World Time Watch
It’s not easy flitting around from continent to continent, but if you are going to be flying through time zones you might as well try and keep track. A world time watch like the Seiko Gent’s World Time Prospex Watch offers you the option of seeing the time in any time zone in the world at just a glance.
Apple Watch, Withings Activité or Samsung Gear are all contenders for those who want what is practically a little computer around their wrist. Offering all sorts of features such as showing photographs, receiving phone calls and even telling you the weather, you’ll always be connected with a smart watch.
The Serious Person
Perfect for businessmen, and those who need to clearly keep an eye on the time, but still want something nice to look at on their wrist, a skeleton watch like the Fossil Grant Men’s is an ideal way to make sure you’re never late for a meeting.
The Sporty Type
Packed with all sorts of features, a waterproof sports watch such as a Fitbit, TomTom Runner or Garmin Forerunner all allow for a fit and healthy lifestyle. Who knew that tracking heart rate, calories burnt, steps and activity could be so much fun?
The Macho Man (or Woman)
If you love getting your hands dirty, getting stuck into things and going on adventures, then a rugged field watch like the Timex Expedition is just the ticket. Boasting a canvas or leather wrist strap, a black anti-glare dial and white numbering, this watch is easy to read in any situation and the strap is cheaper to repair or replace than a metal bracelet.
