As summer approaches, we’re stepping up our fitness game, working out more, and getting active in anticipation of that first beach day. (Well, we’re trying to make CrossFit a regular habit, anyway.) Whether you’re bulking up at the gym or logging miles on the streets, hooping it up with friends or getting zen via yoga; you want your watch to play along.

The best sports watches are resilient, easy-to-read and depending on your activity of choice—multifunctional. Do you need a stopwatch? Water resistance? Geo-locating?

Check, check, and check.

We’ve rounded up the sports watches that are tough enough to stick it out through your most grueling workouts—and look good doing it. Whether you’re swimming, sweating running or tackling, these watches are built to work out as hard as you do.

For outdoors-y guys who are hiking, mountain biking or running outside the city, the Suuoto Ambit GPS Watch features location, altitude, pace, and weather conditions to keep you fully informed with every step.

For swimmers (recreational or competitive), both the Movado ESQ One (that comes in a myriad of cool colors) as well as the Tommy Hilfiger sport watch are water resistant up to 100 meters.

Lightweight and fully equipped to monitor heart rate and GPS, it doesn’t get more training-ready than the Timex Ironman.

If this array of sports-ready watches isn’t enough to motivate you to get active, we’ll just subtly remind you that Memorial Day is just about a month away…
