Armitron ADVENTURE Collection

** A Geek Daddy received the featured products for free to review **

Since 1956, ARMITRON has been equipping men with dependable watches that combine style with function at an affordable price.  They've just introduced a new collection of watches meant to empower guys to be adventurous.  Whether you are hiking through a rustic forest, climbing a steep peak, kayaking white water rapids or simply walking to work, Armitron ADVENTURE watches are designed to keep your day on track.

The Armitron ADVENTURE collection offers several designs that provide different features to meet wearers different needs and demands.  Need to monitor the environment around you during an outdoor trek?  Adventure Tracker watches include altimeter, barometer, temperature and weather station gauges.  Spending time under the darkness of the night sky?  Visible247glow in the dark technology absorb energy from daylight to illuminate the faces of these watches when it's dark. Other watches in the Armitron ADVENTURE collection offer a variety of different analog and digital functions for people to choose from.

I had the opportunity to personally try out two different styles of these new Armitron ADVENTURE watches.  Appreciating analog watches with their classic dial look, I selected two to review that would be useful in different circumstances.  They both were stylish and sturdy leaving me very pleased with my experience using them.  Even after wrapping up this review, I'm sure to continue regularly using these.  Based upon their affordability (most of the watches in the collection are under $100), quality of craftsmanship designed to stand up to rugged outdoor activities, useful features and stylish appearances, Armitron ADVENTURE watches get A Geek Daddy nod of approval.

Solar Powered Analog Watch with Green Nylon Slip Thru-Strap

You won't have to worry about winding or changing a battery to keep this watch ticking.  It is powered by light with one full charge allowing the watch to work continuously for up to 4 months.  Of course if you are actively wearing it around this watch will constantly be charging so you can always depend on it when on the go.

While you may lose your way on a trail you can depend on this watch to always keep track of the time.  With its durable stainless steel case and tough nylon wrist strap this watch is meant to be worn when you are active outdoors where it will get banged and scuffed up.  Whether you are mountain biking in the woods or clowning around with your kids on the neighborhood playground this is a great watch to wear while having outdoor fun.

I found it a very comfortable and convenient watch to wear while doing activities like mowing the lawn, playing catch in the backyard with my son and taking a hike on one of the local nature trails.  It is perfect for activities where you wouldn't want to worry about scuffing up or breaking a fancier model of watch.  Yet it is very dependable keeping an accurate time and still has a stylish look with its analog layout featuring a black face, luminous dial, and easy to view arabic numerals.  The solar cell which converts light into electrical energy to power the timepiece also blends in seamlessly with the watch's appearance.

Analog Watch with Dark Brown Leather Strap

This watch is a great accessory for whatever adventure arises out of your day.  I appreciate that it is professional enough to wear at work with a suit; but can also be casually worn while watching my kids soccer games, going out to eat on the patio of a local bistro, or on a shopping trip to my favorite comic book store.  Whether in a court house or a farm house this watch will help keep you on top of your day's schedule.

Powered by a traditional battery, in addition to the normal time this analog watch also has a multifunction dial that shows military (24 hour) time, the day of the week and the month's date providing quickly accessible information in a manner that also enhances the clock's look.  With a stainless steel case and water resistant up to 330 feet it is built not just to be looked at but to live life's adventures with. In my opinion this is a really sharp watch that is a great bargain because you can comfortably wear it at work or at play.
