When you’re a keen action sportsman, finding a watch that is both functional and stylish can be difficult.

If you’re scaling mountains or diving into the big blue every weekend, you aren’t going to want a watch that conks out after encountering a single drop of water. Nor do you want to look like you’ve got a child’s plastic stopwatch strapped to your wrist.
“Looks are important, but function more so”
Watches today not only track miles travelled and timings, but they also calculate the tide times, set off storm warnings and even use GPS sensors save your achievements on Strava or MapMyRun.

We’ve selected some of the best action sports watches around . These aren’t just based on looks (though the designs are pretty sick), they’ve got all the latest high-tech functions that will help you ride and rip for years to come.
