6 of the best sport watches for men

No matter how you get your fitness kicks, you need a men's sport watch that takes sport as seriously as you do. From radio controlled models that allow precise calibration to Bluetooth activity trackers that monitor performance, the options are endless.

We've handpicked some of the best sports watches from our diverse collection and picked out their key features to help you ace those fitness goals.


1. Casio G-Shock Premium Gulfmaster

This Gulfmaster watch from Casio brings together everything you'd expect from the hard-wearing G- Shock range, alongside some impressive premium features and an eye-catching design to boot.


Utilising its powerful 'Triple Sensor Version 3' and 'Smart Access' crown, the watch boasts barometric pressure, altitude, bearing and temperature sensors, giving you accurate information about the environment around you.

Perfect for maritime activities or hiking rough and unpredictable terrain, 'Tough Solar' draws power from sunlight, ensuring it'll work even when utilising power-zapping features. The solid black resin casing and rubber strap are complimented by striking gold detailing, which nicely completes one of the most impressive G-Shock models to date.


2. Citizen Chrono Perpetual Eco-Drive Watch

Expert craftsmanship, handsome looks and cutting-edge technology blend harmoniously with this nifty Eco-Drive watch from Citizen. Radio controlled synchronisation and solar power charging means wherever you happen to be in the world it'll automatically sync to the right time, and you'll never need a new battery.



The chronograph and tachymeter functions allow you to easily track your performance, whether sprinting or long-distance running, and its water resistance up to 200m makes it ideal for scuba- diving. Plus, with its sophisticated design, the Eco-Drive is just as at home in the boardroom or cocktail bar as it is in the great outdoors.


3. Lotus Marc Marquez Limited Edition

This striking Lotus Marc Marquez watch is a real winner on so many levels, much like the three-time world MotoGP motorcycle racing champ that inspired it. The two-tone steel plated bracelet design carries through to the beautiful watch face, which is nicely contrasted with gold hands and logo detailing.



It has a tachymeter in the bezel, as well as an easy to use chronograph and date function. Presented in a stunning gift box, this head-turning wristwatch also comes with an additional black leather strap and jewellery bracelet, allowing it to blend easily into different looks.


4. TW Steel 10th Anniversary Canteen Limited Edition

Nobody has mastered the art of big and bold watchmaking quite like TW Steel, and this chunky limited edition model is no exception. Constructed from tough stainless steel and featuring analogue chronograph automatic movement, it's robust enough to take any hard knocks sport might throw its way.



The jet-black face is complemented with silver hands and white detailing, which is perfectly framed by the distinctive mesh outer case and oversized dial, completed with a thick, brown leather strap.


5. Garmin Men's Forerunner 920XT GPS Bluetooth Watch

As activity trackers go, few can stack up to the almighty Garmin Forerunner GPS Smartwatch. As well as measuring running cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time, this watch will measure how many calories you've burned all day and monitors your sleep quality.



The smart functions are enabled by low-power Bluetooth, allowing you to receive emails, texts, calls and social media alerts on the go. The chunky design gives easy access to its many functions, and the separate heart rate monitor ensures more precise readings.

When synced up to the Garmin app, you can unlock a wealth of useful data to help monitor health and improve technique and fitness levels.


6. Polar Men's A300 Bluetooth Activity Tracker

Polar is another brand which has become synonymous with quality sports watches and this sleek black Bluetooth men's model is one of its best. As well as tracking your every move, the A300 can conduct a five-minute fitness test that evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake to determine your aerobic fitness.



Choose from 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon to build and adapt your own running programmes and reach your personal goals. The Polar A300 can also take call, text and social alerts and comes with a chest strap heart rate monitor.

From stylish options that can be worn at all times to robust activity trackers that come loaded with special features, we have a watch for every man, no matter his favourite sport. Not spotted the one for you? Browse our entire range of men's sports watches here, where you'll find over 400 models.
