Sport watches

Sports watches are watches designed to be worn while playing sports. They are often on the larger side, and are distinguishable because of their features: use of highly shock-resistant materials for the case as well as the strap, optimized legibility for daytime or night-time conditions alike, water resistance allowing for use during aquatic activities, and presence of useful complications for general sporting activities such as chronograph, flyback, depth gauge, etc. The sports watches category includes, among others, divers’ watches, racing drivers’ watches, or even pilots’ watches.
