The Hottest Sports Watches On The Market Right Now

I’m a man that loves a good watch, but when it comes to physical activity, keeping on a Patek Philippe simply isn’t an option.

Hey there – I’m the resident watch guy at Top Deals For Men and today, I’m going to be taking you through my choices for the best sports watches you can currently get at a super price point. The great thing about most sports watches is that they don’t need to be extremely techy or flashy: it’s all about getting the job done and with no mechanical interior, that leaves plenty of room for other features to shine through.

I’m a big believer in choice, so the deals I’ll present will be split between low-cost and high-cost models. Some are going to be real basic with few extra features, whereas others will be better than most computers that were on the market 10 years ago. I made a point of heading out yesterday to try and get my hands on as many of these listed as possible, but where that wasn’t possible, I’ve elected to source online reviews and watch YouTube unboxings.

Exercise ought to be an important part of any man’s lifestyle, so whether you’re a little on the porky side or a marathon-a-week kinda guy, I hope you find my recommendations perfect for your circumstances. Additionally, be sure to check out the other articles I’ve written here that look at all different types of timepieces. I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to fashionable wrist accessories, so if you like my style, be sure to have a read of those too!

    The Gear S3 Frontier looks like a standard mechanical watch, but comes packed with a wide range of smart features.
