A few months ago, I started working out with CrossFit. In doing so, I’ve become re-energized to get out of the house and do things I wouldn’t normally do, like go for walks and hikes, take bike rides around the city and much, much more. When I received the opportunity from Kohl’s to review an Armitron Women’s Watch and share it with a friend, I couldn’t refuse. Who doesn’t like working out with a friend?
Not only was it perfect timing, since I was looking for an active watch. Around my birthday, I started wearing watches again. As a mom and someone who actually wears her yoga pants to yoga, I needed a watch that I could wear all day long, not just for dress-up occasions. Wait? I dress up?
So, I had been scouring online to find a watch that would fit me. Pink isn’t quite a color I would use to describe me, since I’m more into blues and blacks, but this watch seemed to go with everything. I wore it almost everywhere, but it was extremely helpful in timing workouts for myself and playtime with the kids.
This Armitron Women’s Watch has cool features like:
- Calendar: day & date
- Daily alarm
- Hourly chime
- 12/24-hour formats
- Dual time
- Chronograph: elapsed & lap time
- Countdown timer
- Water resistance: 100 meters
All of which was great, because I didn’t need to remove it to give my kids a bath, jump in the pool or hit the gym. This all purpose watch kept me going (and on-time) and I didn’t have to have my phone on me in these very wet places.
Definitely a must-have for an active summer. Don’t believe me? Remember that friend that also received a watch?
Introducing Kimberly Dixon, our newest contributor to AprilNoelle.com. She will be writing posts on Fitness and Faith for now, and we’ll see where it goes from there. Here’s her review:
I had the pleasure of being able to test the Armitron Women’s Watch. I wore it during my tennis and speed walking workouts.
First and foremost for me, was the look of the watch. The color combination I had was the pink with with black accent on the band. Most passerby’s noticed it right away and followed up with quick positive comments. It has a look that transitioned from workout, to work, to play, according to the agenda of my day.
Next, was the wear of the watch. I must admit it was very comfortable, even during the most active and sweatiest part of my workout. The fit was non-slip and stayed in place. There was no pinching or movement at all. It handled the moisture well and dried fairly quickly. The straps are soft to the touch, but are in fact very durable. All of this during a 12 hour day stretch.
The two features that I had an opportunity to try were the stop watch and the split time keeping. Both functions were easy to set and track. The element of switching functions was also effortless and easy to understand without referring to the instructions or interrupting the flow of the workout too much. The actual time keeping was very dependable and seems to have accurate tracking.
On a scale of 1 – 10 in comparison to other watches I have worn for workout specific purposes, I give this one a well-rounded 10! It works great and feels greater!
