When you’re hitting the surf and sand, you don’t want to wear a pricey automatic timepiece that could get lost or damaged. Plus, you want the kind of functionality that can actually help your active endeavors. Timex’s Expedition North Tide & Time Compass Watch is rugged, handsome, and ready to provide info on the tides, air and water temperature, and direction. The black-coated stainless steel case is rugged, and the presence of tough sapphire glass at this price is impressive. It’s water resistant to 100 meters, so it’s ready for the waves, and the INDIGLO nightlight provides superior illumination. The outdoorsy tan dial is matched by the eco-leather strap, so the highly functional watch also looks pretty good on the wrist.
