For riding the waves: If you're a beach babe who loves to surf, check out the Nixon Lodown S to keep track of time and the waves. This watch has pre-programmed tide forecasts of 270 beaches worldwide for the next 15 years, so you’ll know when to hit the water and what to expect when you ride. It's equipped with a wave counter & countdown timer and comes in 12 stylish colors to match your board or wetsuit.

For running trails: “Everything you need and nothing you don’t,” is the motto that led to Soleus Dash's creation. This simple, functional watch has a 30-lap memory to keep track of splits, stores up to 10 run data files to help you track your progress and has six interval timers, making it perfect for training outdoors. And if you appreciate a little humorous inspiration, engraved on the back of the watch is "If you can read this, you’re not running."

For swimming laps: Instead of laying poolside to catch some rays, get your workout by swimming laps in the water, but not without wearing Swimovate Poolmate. This watch counts laps, strokes per lap, speed, distance and estimates calories burned. It stores up to 400 swim sessions data and has an efficiency index meant to help you improve your stroke technique over time. Turns out the pool isn't just for play!

For park-hopping and serious shopping: If you haven't hopped on the fitness tracker train, try this New Balance LifeTRNr watch to count your estimated burned calories as you engage in your favorite summer activities.

It measures your heart rate and even includes a sleep tracker to make sure you're well rested for the day ahead. This watch also has a backlight display so you can read it easily on the sunniest of days.
