Nixon Regulus Expedition Watch

Published By

Smartwatches are great when you can park them in their charging dock each night. But they’re possibly not the best choice when heading out on a multi-day excursion into the backcountry. The Nixon Regulus Expedition Watch however, with its two-year battery life, built-in compass, altimeter, barometer, and thermometer, is the ideal tool for getting lost in the wilderness without ever actually getting lost. 

Housed in a super tough but lightweight TR-90 thermoplastic and stainless steel case, the watch has 100 meters of water-resistance and extreme protection against bumps and bangs. At 47mm, it’s a substantial timepiece that only looks burlier with the addition of a double-prong buckle and textured, injection-molded silicone strap. The display is a high-def MLCD screen that uses a miniscule amount of power compared to an OLED screen, allowing the Regulus to deliver crucial information long after a smartwatch has run out of juice.
