Non-competitive Water Tech

Swimming competitively has no counterpart in my book. You train forever and work at perfecting your skills. There are times, however, when you can lay back and enjoy a non-competitive session or two. The pool is quiet, the stands are not filled, and it is pure bliss.
Diving is an option at such times as well. Whatever I decide to do, I enjoy my time to the fullest. We all need such personal extracurricular opportunities. Sometimes special gear goes along with the endeavor chosen. When it comes to swimming and diving, a high tech dive watch is often found on my wrist. I actually have several in that my family and friends know what I like and they indulge me with great gifts. If you don’t get what you desire for Christmas, I have a few suggestions as to what to buy for yourself online or in stores.
If price is no object, you can go for the best of the best. If you are not a pro, it doesn’t matter. It will provide great features and benefits. I am talking about the Reactor Graviton 2 Chrono for men which goes for about $500. It is not the most expensive and is therefore suitable for most. This digital darling is made of stainless steel, has a high-contrast LCD screen (that can be turned off) with silvertone hands and markers, and a sturdy rubber strap. It is well made and reliable. The case has a screw-down crown and is guaranteed watertight. Even if the screws are loose, water does not penetrate.
Furthermore, the screwbars that attach the case to the strap are tougher than most. This is a no-fault watch to be sure. The manufacturer knows its craft and uses only the finest high-grade materials. Even if you change the battery time and again, you will always get a perfect seal. You also get dual alarms, a chronograph, and a countdown timer. Nothing you could want has been overlooked. You want tide chart accuracy for 275 North American locations? You got it until the year 2020. You want top lines display for the next two upcoming tide times and height, you got it. You also will find the current moon phase and a dot matrix line display of the date and time.
Dual time means digital and analog settings synchronized in a single movement. Other features include automatic sunrise sunset time, water and shock resistance to 600 feet, 1 ¾ inch case width, and a two-year warranty. I think I have covered the basic details. You can find testimonials and more info online. There are other choices out there, but this one strikes me as all purpose. I would definitely drop a few hints at birthday or holiday time! Sure, they come a lot cheaper with Casio and more expensive with Bulova and Montrek (both have versions good for 1,000 feet), but this mid-range option is my recommendation. A close second is the Swiss army Divemaster collection in various quartz and mechanical models. You will be happy with any of these choices.
