Mechanical watch for runs recommend.

Any one use a mechanical watch for running and which model ?

Don't wear my glasses while running so need legibility. Thinking about IWC Aquatimer. I think A chronograph would be hard for me to read.

I may have asked this ? here before.

I dont like to wear any jewelry while exercising but I would think a fitbit/apple watch would be most conducive to running if you need something.

The only "nice" watch I have ever considered purchasing to wear while hiking/running was the Breitling Endurance Pro. But still, that's still $3k+ for a quartz watch.

Just my personal opinion, I wouldn't buy anything too expensive for risk of damage (hence why I didn't buy the Breitling myself), So I would go with something like the Seiko 5 Sports. Has an automatic movement, super durable, and if something were to happen to it, you're only out a few hundred bucks.

Something like a Hamilton Khaki manual wind wouldn't be the worst idea. Manual rather than automatic will deal with the forces associated with running a lot better. Grab a NATO strap and it'll work well I think.

Hamilton is one of my favorites always loved their Pulsar.

Who wants a watch clunking around while you're running? Get a fitbit

Figured with a rubber strap.
Also I have so many items that need recharging at the end of the day...I'm kinda sick of batteries and cables.
I thought the IWC Aquatimer would be cool but come to find out it's one of those pieces that prices tumble on.

Probably keep on using the G-Shock.
