Women's Sporty Watches for Athletic Ladies

Women are just as active as men and have been seen surfing, speed skating and even playing football. So why wouldn't ladies want a sports watch that works just as hard as they do?

Women are accustomed to the feminine side of life; but when it comes to sports gear, they have the same expectations in their equipment that men have, and that includes good, durable sporty watches.

This article discusses some women who love to play the game. Just what kind of sports watch do you think they wear?

Dara Torres

American swimmer who has competed in over five Olympics in her career.

In total, she's won 12 medals; and at the age healthy age of 33, Torres was the oldest member on the USA Swim Team. On August 1, 2007, at the age of 40 (just 15 months after giving birth to her first child), she won gold in the 100 meter freestyle at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis—her 14th win at the events.

Torres has also broken her own record for the 50 meter freestyle at the same invitational. Her swimming career spans over 24 years of being devoted to the water. Currently, Torres hosts sports shows and models. Also, she has competed in the World Championship in Rome this year; her second return since 1986. The most reliable watch for Torres would be one that is water resistant and has a stopwatch for tracking her time.

For her, the Orient CVZ02001B would meet her needs. A watch that is 100 m water resistant and has a large face with a mini stopwatch and split timer. She can set the time and go.



Lisa Leslie

Retired from the WNBA as a three-time MVP winner and four-time Olympic gold medalist.

Leslie played for the LA Sparks as the forward and was the first player to dunk in a WNBA game. She helped the Sparks make the playoffs five consecutive times, but the team was never able to win a championship until the 2001 season when the Sparks won the WNBA title. That year, Leslie was named the 2001 Sportswoman of the Year by the Women's Sports Foundation.

While enjoying this successful basketball career, she was also able to have girls of her own. Playing basketball was not the initial path Leslie planned. She actually wanted to be a weather woman and started playing the sport in her early college career to stay active.

Though she is retired from being a player, she hasn't retired from being a mom, so the best productive watch for her is the CSNAA002W. While she is on the move, she can look to her digital, yet stylish wristwatch to know when to pick up the girls. She also can use it to count down the seconds as she makes one last layup.

In 2007, her work ethic and professionalism earned her the ranking as 4th biggest earner under 25 by Forbes . She made 19 million dollars.

Wie is the kind of athlete who must look good both on and off the course, so the wristwatch that fits her is the CETAE003W. It's simple, yet sleek with a leather band, large face, and calendar. It is also water resistant up to 50 meters.
