Whether your passion is scuba diving, hiking, mountain climbing, surfing, or just about any “awesome” adventure, ArmourLite has a watch for you. ArmourLite is excited to preview two new highly anticipated watch series at JCK Las Vegas 2014: the ArmourLite Navigator Diver Series and the ArmourLite Officer Field Series.

The all-new ArmourLite Navigator Diver Series watches were designed to satisfy the tastes of adventurers around the world. “We consulted with a lot of hardcore adventure seekers and this new series incorporates all the design elements that were highly demanded by these individuals,” explains Ashley Diener, CEO of ArmourLite. Navigating the land and seas just got a whole lot easier!

The Navigator Diver Series watches are the first tritium illuminated watches to offer a screw crown with a polycarbonate case. Traditional polycarbonate case construction makes it difficult to incorporate a screw crown. Rather, push crowns are commonly used. In addition to the ultra-lightweight polycarbonate construction, anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal is used. Swiss Ronda 507 quartz movements with day and date displays power the watches. A unidirectional rotating bezel with a green tritium marker at the zero-position is useful for keeping track of elapsed time. Plus, the watches offer 200m of dive-friendly water resistance. The dials feature green and orange tritium markers as well as compass bearings. Each watch also comes with an NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) band that is heavily resistant to oils, greases, and extreme temperatures.

The first model in the ArmourLite Navigator Diver Series, AL1001, will be available for sale later this year. ArmourLite authorized retailers will begin taking pre-orders immediately following JCK Las Vegas.

The ArmourLite Navigator Diver Series watches offer the following features:

  • Green, orange, yellow T25 tritium markers on the dial
  • Compass bearings on the dial
  • Ultra lightweight polycarbonate case construction
  • Swiss Ronda 507 quartz movement with day and date displays
  • Anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal
  • 200m water resistance rated for diving
  • Unidirectional elapsed-time bezel with a green tritium marker
  • 44mm diameter case
  • Highly durable NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) band
  • MSRP: $325.00

Suunto Ambit 3 is coming.

ambit3_1

Suunto has announced their latest endurance and multisport watch, the Suunto Ambit3.  The watch incrementally builds on previous generations of the Ambit in what has been a roughly 12-16 month release cycle for the company.  The Ambit3 when it’s available in September 2014 will add mobile phone integration such as workout uploading and smartphone notifications, while also including support for Bluetooth Smart sensors and heart rate while swimming.

I’ve been using a few beta units of the Ambit3 for a fair bit of time now and thus have a good understanding of many of the new areas.  But because the watch and the mobile app experience are still very much beta (almost two months until public availability), please do understand this isn’t a review.  It’s more of a ‘preview of new things’ coming.  As such, things could change.  They could get better, or, they could get worse – that’s the nature of beta.  Historically speaking however Suunto actually is one of the stronger companies when it comes to releasing relatively bug-free software.  Further, they have a nearly perfect record for releasing products and firmware updates on time per the dates they’ve set (unlike most all of their competitors).  Thus, I remain optimistic on their ability to execute here.

With that said, let’s dive into what’s new and notable.  In my final In-Depth Review (which would be in early September), I’ll cover all the regular stuff that’s not new.  But as a general rule of thumb everything from the Ambit2 is available in the Ambit3 (unless noted below).

Trinidad James – 10pcs Mild – Autograph Signing

Rewind back to year ago…just realized this was posted on youtube. Thank you.

Trinidad James 10pc Mild Release Party @ American Deli, Fly Kix, and Ginza

James became a regular at the Ginza boutique in Underground Atlanta. One fateful day, he found himself shopping there as the store was being robbed. “The thieves grabbed the clothes and ran, and the manager went after them.”

Suddenly, James found himself alone in his favorite clothing store with the keys to the register. So what does he do? “I locked up and waited outside for [the manager] to come back.” That gesture built a trust and rapport that led to him being offered a job.
