Whether you’re an adventure junkie, a trained athlete or a casual jogger, tracking your performance is a great way to keep you motivated and help you set new fitness goals.

If you’re looking to invest in a new timepiece, check out these stylish new sports watches to add to your watch collection.
Breitling Endurance Pro IRONMAN Editions
Breitling has been associated with IRONMAN, one of the world’s toughest triathlon events, since 2021. In anticipation of this year’s triathlon events, Breitling unveiled the Endurance Pro IRONMAN collection. Interestingly, these have been designed in the event’s distinct colour theme, blue and turquoise. The two watches in the collection include a turquoise Endurance Pro IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship watch and a blue Endurance Pro IRONMAN World Championship watch. The former marks the competition in Lahti, Finland, from August 26 to 27, while the latter recognizes the men’s competition in Nice, France, on September 10, and the women’s competition in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on October 14. Limited to 250 pieces each, both watches feature an ultra-lightweight Breitlight® strap making it perfect for everyday wear as well. Powered by Breitling’s Caliber 82, the watch is thermally stable, scratch-resistant, non-magnetic, and hypoallergenic, in addition to being water resistant up to 100m and reliable with its easy readability, timekeeping chronograph function, and solar compass.
Bvlgari Aluminium Capri Edition
Bvlgari’s new Bvlgari Aluminium Capri Edition watch combines the best of style and functionality. The limited edition collection celebrates the fabled Italian island, capturing the beauty of the sea and skies in a rich Mediterranean shade of blue. The caseback features an engraving of the island’s famous Faraglioni rock formations while the dial features a beautiful gradient effect. The watch is both sleek and stylish, perfect for casual day looks or outdoor adventures. It is fitted with a mechanical manufacture movement, and automatic winding, and is water-resistant up to 100 metres perfect for a deep-sea diving jaunt.
CarlF. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec Verde
Carl F. Bucherer has been an active supporter of the Manta Trust since 2013 and has recently unveiled the Patravi ScubaTec Verde as part of its contribution for this year. The vibrant green hue comes from the green waters around Isla de La Plata. This is where more than 22,000 oceanic manta rays live during the month of August to September. Boasting a sleek design, the lacquered green dial matches the recycled PET rubber strap. As for functionality, the watch has a water resistance of up to 50 bar, the highest in all of CFB’s collections. Moreover, the Super-LumiNova® filled index markers and hands make it easy to read the watch at the lowest of depths. A folding clasp with fine adjustment and diving extension adds a further essential element for underwater practicality.
Piaget Polo Field
Piaget introduced the Polo watch in 1979 intending it to “express an elegant interpretation of both an active and refined soul”. And rightfully, the new Polo Fieldwatch, in its vivid emerald green hue, is meant to be admired more by the watcher than the wearer. Everything from the green rubber strap to the skeletonised caseback reeks of the sophistication that polo is known for. The rubber strap features ribbings to match the dial’s thick gadroons which mimic a polo ground while the super-luminova indexes, hands, and the “P” cut-out on the seconds-hand added an extra touch. The skeletonised caseback is the most interesting part of the watch. It showcases Piaget’s in-house 1110P automatic calibre which provides the watch with 50 hours of power reserve, and up to 100 meters of water resistance.
The original Tissot Sideralwatch was responsible for popularising the use of fibreglass for watches, back in 1969. A reliable, tough-as-nails material, fibreglass was extensively used in aeronautics only. That was up until Tissot’s first lightweight Sideral watch. Today, there are several new materials that are much tougher like carbon fibre. However, Tissor decided to modernise its innovative Sideral watch giving us a unique new variant in three eye-catching colours. The new variant features some of the original features including the regatta timer, red and green indicators on the dial, and five-minute countdown indicators on the bezel. As for what’s new, the modern variant comes with a forged carbon case along with a black PVD unidirectional bezel. A unique fastening system replaces the old clasp closure. Instead, there is a pin that fits into the perforations on the other strap. The Sideral also features the brand’s new Powermatic 80 Nivacrom self-winding movement with an 80-hour power reserve and considerable water resistance of up to 300 metres.
