This is our wake-up call. Sound and wrist vibration mean no excuses when the summit’s ahead, a flight can be missed or 12 miles of tough trail call. Active Junky’s taken this 200m water-resistant piece to Chile already this year; we can’t take it off our wrist now that we’ve got a full-featured, shock-resistant watch – with classic Indiglo brilliance – on our team. Making the tour boat on time, getting a head start on a Pacific Coast outing; all thanks to Timex.
Tester Quote: “Until you’ve tried the easy-setting alarm (and vibration mode), it seems wake-up calls, reminders and even iPhone alarms don’t cut it – at least for heavy sleepers. Considering all the features and generous display, this model’s not overwhelming in size, either—even on average wrists.”
Best For: Travel, particularly across time zones that require rapid resetting including alarms and timers.
