LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new Soleus Sport Watch. I’ve had it about week now and I have zero complaints as of yet. I went on a search for an affordable sport watch that I could use for swimming laps and interval training. I must have looked at a dozen different watches. I even purchased one only to return it the next day.
I needed a watch that would help me count laps when running hill sprints, laps in the pool, and also interval sprints on the track. Now there are watches out there that will do all of this and more but they are either too expensive or just don’t look that great.
I don’t want to have to change my watch when I leave work to put on my dedicated sport watch. I wanted a watch that looks fashionable enough for business or nights out on the town but still have the functions I require for my fitness activities. This watch fits that bill.
This watch has a nice size face and an easy to ready digital display. The face of the ULTRA SOLE was perfect for my wrist but a bit big for my wife. I’m 5’ 11” and weight about 180 pounds, my wife is 5’ 8” and weight’s……well….. she has an athletic build, lets leave it at that. But never fear because Soleus also makes some great looking women’s sport watches as well. In fact my wife may be getting one soon so I’ll write another review when she does.
One of the things I really like about this watch is the way the strap is molded directly to the face of this watch. Its all one piece and looks a feels extremely sturdy.
I use the lap counter with split time daily and was the my main reason for purchasing this watch. I’ve also used the interval timer a couple of times and plan on using it much more.
If you are looking for a fashionable watch that has no problem transitioning from business attire to training clothes, then look no further.
The Ultra Watch for the Ultra Runner. Inspired by and designed for the tortured souls who need more distance than a simple marathon can offer. This watch features a 100 hr Chronograph for ultra marathon distances, a 15 second EL Backlight for running in low light conditions, and a hydration alarm that lets you know when to fill up on fluids. With the Ultra Sole, distance is a minor detail.
