Watches & Fitness Trackers

With so many watches in the world, from traditional and fitness styles to smart watches, finding one that you're going to want to invest in and wear for years can be hard. Let's start with men's watches. How big is 40mm? What if you want your watch to do more than just tell time? Luckily, there's a watch out there for everyone.

Here's how to grab the one that's the best fit:

First let's talk about millimeters on a watch and what it means. Millimeter is referring to the diameter of the watch face. Typically, watches fall in the 34mm - 50mm range, although there are a few faces that go up to 60mm in diameter. It would be up to you to determine what size you prefer for your wrist. There is a full line of men's and women's Invicta watches starting as low as $39.88 and going all the way up to the Invicta Pro Diver watch which is water resistant up to 200 meters. If you're the type that likes to wear a traditional watch then the Invicta is the one for you.

If you are the kind of person who wants your watch to also track your activity you should take a look at fitness trackers. The Fitbit Surge tracks distance, steps, calories burned and active minutes. It even shows how long and how well you sleep and your heart rate. If you're not looking for something that fancy take a look at the Jawbone UP 2 activity sleep tracker. Not only does it track your sleep and activity but it also has an alarm to wake you at the optimal time on your sleep cycle or the MIO ALPHA 2 that stores up to 25 hours of workout data.

If you want to have everything available with just a flick of the wrist you can get a smart watch like the Samsung Gear. Not only does it have built-in activity trackers, but it also works with most Android devices to give you notifications, texts, calendar reminders and more from your phone right on to your wrist. It will even warn you if you've been sitting for too long.

For you Apple fans, the Apple Smart Watch comes in all kinds of colors: silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold with different options of bands. Whatever color or band you choose, you still get the Retina display with Force Touch for a tough, good looking watch face, with a built-in heart rate sensor, speaker, microphone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability, with all the notifications you need from your iPhone.

No matter what you need to do, or where you need to do it, and for any size budget, today's watches can do a lot more than just look great and tell you the time. Come in today to take a look at what's new, nice, and exciting in the world of watches and talk to the trained staff that can help you get the best companion for your wrist.
