Going out on your own for a weekend adventure can be fun and exhilarating but there are some things you should know and take with you while out in the bush. Food and water are two of the first things you should consider followed by a machete and survival knife. You sleeping arrangements also need to be taken into consideration but one thing that should never be overlooked is a tactical watch. These watches are designed specifically to be able to put through some of the toughest of situations and keep on ticking (pun).
All jokes aside, these are one of the most versatile tools packed into a small, almost forgettable at times size. Simply place it on your wrist and you might forget you even have it on after a few hours of wearing it. These watches are generally constructed out of steel or high impact rubber, meaning you can put them through the ringer and they’ll keep on going. Not only that, but these watches come with more options that most luxury SUV’s.
From 12-24 hours setting to multiple alarms, these watches are built to have everything you could even need while out for an adventure in the bush.
