With only a limited number available at a special price, you will need to act fast to own these one-of-a-kind timepieces. Suunto makes world-class technology designed to withstand the rigors of expeditions and adventure seekers. Suunto calls their watches “outdoor devices” because they measure temperature, altitude, and barometric pressure. This allows the most hardcore “Brave Fury” enthusiasts to forecast the weather and decide whether they are going to press on or hunker down for the night. Our pick for the best men’s watch for CrossFit that is actually a computer for your wrist.
The Garmin Forerunner 410 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch with Heart Rate Monitor and the Garmin Forerunner 110 GPS-Enabled Sport Watch with Heart Rate Monitor are for those who want to take their training to the next level of benefits and accuracy. We are amazed by the Virtual Partner function of this watch that gives you a digital depiction of your actual pace vs. goal pace. You can even follow a previously recorded activity and try to match or beat it. The built-in GPS provides a high level of accuracy for your times, distances, and location. These watches come with Garmin Connect, a program to install on your computer that will analyze your data and give you visuals of your workouts and courses. The Garmin Forerunner line is the best men’s watch for CrossFit for athletes who enjoy the running days of their grueling routines.
If you are looking to make a stylish statement, look no further than the Timex Men’s T5E411 Ironmann OVA Resin Strap Watch. Another no-nonsense watch that will give you everything you need in the gym and out on the Tough Mudder course. Complete with all the options you would expect from the Ironman line including water resistance, interval timers, and foolproof buttons.
The most styley watch on our list is the G-Shock G-SHOCK The 6900 Sneaker Culture Watch that takes its design cues from sneaker fashions. This is the perfect watch if you are the CrossFit athlete who wears your Air Yeezy’s or Jordans to the gym. Featuring a matte white band and gloss white case with pop color accents and reverse LCD’s, this watch will go perfect with your shiny white iPhone attached to your arm. With all the G-Shock durability, this watch also has plenty of interval timers and even a buzzer alarm for one of them. We were impressed by the glow of the blue-green electro-luminescent backlight that provided enough light to find our keys after a midnight trip to the local 24 Hour Fitness. If the Sneaker Pimps are on your workout playlist, this is the best men’s watch for CrossFit for you.
