Review of the Nike Amp+ iPod Control Watch

The Nike Amp+ iPod control watch is unusual for many reasons. To start with, it only displays hours and minutes. No seconds, no date, no alarm, no stopwatch. And to see the time, you actually have to press a button to illuminate the LED display. But the Amp+ isn't designed...

Review of the Timex iControl

View the Timex iControl Photo Gallery. MP3 players are becoming an increasingly standard piece of workout equipment. Music can help keep runners "in the zone" or help keep weight lifters' adrenaline pumping, and audio books and podcasts can help us make more efficient use of our workout time. Now that...

The Seiko Velatura Collection

We've written pretty extensively about Seiko here at Watch Report. We just plain love 'em. Their self-powered Kinetic watches, which use a mechanical winder to store energy in a battery driving a quartz movement, are very cool. As with a mechanical watch, an offset weight rotates around an axle in...

The Casio STP-100 Pedometer Watch

The Casio STP-100 looks like an average digital watch, but adds a new trick: a pedometer. By measuring how many steps you take, and combining that data with information that you provide (your stride length and weight), it can estimate distance, calories burned, pace, and more. It's similar to the...

The Timex iControl IRONMAN

Apple's line of solid-state iPods have long been popular for exercise and sports. The iPod shuffle and nano are shockproof and have a longer battery life than the higher capacity hard drive models, making them a great choice for running, hiking, and general active use. The nano can even be...

Watches for Swimming

If you swim for fitness, finding a watch to keep track of lap times is difficult. Most general-fitness watches are cumbersome to use underwater, and often have displays that are hard to read. But there are a couple of innovative products out there that attempt to solve this problem. The...

Casio Introduces New GPS Watch: GPR-100-1JR

Casio has decided to try their luck at another GPS watch. While their first GPS watch was more of a smallish hand-held GPS strapped to your wrist, the GPR-100 is actually the smallest GPS watch available (63.1mm x 49.5mm x 17.1mm). And it actually looks like a watch, so it...

Review of the Highgear Enduro Compass Watch

View the Highgear Enduro photo gallery. The Highgear Enduro is a durable and affordable sports watch that has a lot going for it. The look is tough and distinctive, and the fit is light and comfortable. It's not the most feature-rich sports watch I've seen, but it has everything most...

Review of the Casio G-Shock GW-5600 Retro Digital Watch

View the Casio G-Shock GW-5600 photo gallery. The GW-5600 is a remake of the very first Casio G-Shock: the 1983 DW-5000C. I fell in love with the GW-5600 series the first time I saw it both for its boxy, retro styling, and for its plain but essential feature set. In...

The Seiko Sportura SLQ019

Remember the Seiko Sportura SLQ017? It's one of the new limited edition Kinetic Sporturas. Apparently there were only 1,500 made, and only 400 of those were shipped to the US. Well, if you missed out on the SLQ017, Seiko just announced the new SLQ019. As far as I can tell,...

The Timex Ironman OVA (Optimal Viewing Angle)

I always say that you should pick the right watch for the job. And if the job at hand is running or speeding walking, the Timex OVA (Optimal Viewing Angle) looks like it could be the right watch. First of all, if you're looking for a heart rate monitor, you...

Seiko AirPro: The Inflatable Watch

I was in New York for a conference last week, and I ran into a girl wearing a big, dorky (in a cool way), very intriguing watch which turned out to be a Seiko AirPro. I'd never seen one before, and when she told me she'd bought it in Japan,...
