Workout with Armitron Women’s Watch from Kohl’s {#Giveaway}

All opinions are our own.

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?

Kohl's Armitron Watch Review #MakeYourMove

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.

All the moves I made with Kohl's Armitron Watch Review #MakeYourMove

 

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!

  1. I love this! I’ll have to try it out. I don’t have a great watch for working out and would love one. Great giveaway too! Khol’s is one of my favorite places.

  2. Robin Rue (@massholemommy)

    That is an awesome watch. I am always doing timed drills, so this would be perfect for me.

    1. Not I. With the kids, time will either move really fast and really slow. I don’t always like digging in my purse to find out what time it is. What a great gift to have to always know.

  4. These look like great watches. I need to invest in a watch instead of just simply looking at the time on my phone since I am trying to get away from my screen as much as possible.

  5. I’m a total watch Kinda gal so these are just awesome to me! Totally need to add one to my watch collection.

  6. Tiffany Collins (@Naturalycracked)

    I have been looking at the FitBit but this looks like something I might be able to use instead. I love that it is waterproof ( up to 100M) as it makes it easier to leave it on all the time:)

  7. Robin Masshole mommy

    That is a really nice set of watches. I shop at Kohls all the time and always get such great deals there.

  8. Ann Bacciaglia

    These are great watches. I would love a workout watch. I will have to hint for one for my birthday.

  9. Cool GIF! My husband has a watch that looks similar to these. I am not sure whether or not it is a Armitron, but it looks pretty cool, just like these watches. I wouldn’t mind one of my own!

  10. Really a great giveaway indeed. The watch looks just awesome. I love the pink one and great to know that it is water resistant as well. I really need this one for myself and I wish I could win the giveaway as well. Thanks for sharing.

  11. What a great giveaway. I am opting out of entering the giveaway. I do hope someone wins one of those watches blogs about it. I will be keeping my eye out.

  12. I really like the black and pink watch and the his and her’s watch. I am just re starting to work out again. I’m never exactly sure what is the best work out gear to buy. I probally never would have thought twice about a watch because I use my cellphone but I can see the benefits to having this watch after seeing your post. Thanks for sharing.

    Omg these watches look and sound awesome!! I totally need one so I can stop
    Lugging my phone around with me while working out

  14. I have been in the market to buy a nice sturdy watch. I’m so sick of asking people what the time is and digging through my bag for my phone. Watches are so important to have especially if your phone dies.

  15. Awesome watch and amazing Giveaway!! Can you believe Armitron was my very first watch???!!! I thought I was so grown up! I think I was about 9…I would love to have another one and well you know pink IS my color 😀

    1. This is my first and may be my only. I have never had a watch that I’ve used consistently and I find that it’s helpful in timing the kids without going to my phone or timer. So easy.

    1. It only tracks your time, unfortunately, but if you’re running the same route, you could time yourself to see if you can beat your previous day. Definitely worth a shot.

  16. Thank you so much April for thinking of me for this review. It is really a great watch but, it was more fun hanging out and testing it!
