Every designer on the planet owes a debt to Dieter Rams, the man behind some of Braun's most enduring designs. Now you can take a piece of that legacy with you every time you step outside. Winner of an IF award in 2013, the Braun Prestige Chronograph Watch is as sleek as the rest of their portfolio, featuring a 43mm black-plated case carved from a single piece of stainless steel, a black polyurethane band, a precision Swiss movement, highly-readable numbers, and all the reliability you'd expect from the company that brought you this.
It's not exactly a smart watch, but the Suunto Ambit3 Sport Watch is far from dumb. This sleek GPS watch offers up accurate speed, distance, and heart rate monitor information (With an add-on sensor), as well as specialized features for running, biking, and swimming. But the watch itself is only half the story, as it pairs with a companion Movescount app to provide even more data, let you configure what's being displayed on the watch, relay notifications from your phone, and even create customized movies that show your activity as well as any photos you've shot on your journey. Available in black, blue, white, or sapphire, with or without the heart rate sensor.
You don't need a super-fancy watch to look great and tell the time. Take the Tsovet JPT-PW36 Watch for example. Understated by design, this 36mm timepiece is powered by a Japanese Miyota movement, and offers clear markings for both the hours and the minutes/seconds, as well as a handsome leather strap and your choice of stainless, black, or gunmetal bezels, which are paired with matte copper, matte champagne, and matte black dials, respectively.
