An ActiveWatchers’ Thumbs up for 127 Hours

November 16, 2010

The ActiveWatches blog isn’t usually the place for movie reviews.  But after seeing “127 Hours” this past Saturday night, the ActiveWatcher couldn’t help himself.  The movie is based on the true story about mountain climber Aaron Ralston (played by James Franco) and his personal journey of being trapped under a boulder for five days in Robbers Roost, Utah.  The movie is sure to delight ActiveWatches‘ customer base.  With the theme of the movie focused on personal triumph and unimaginable sacrifice, it’s sure to make you feel guilty for complaining about your everyday life.

But on a note more relevant to the ActiveWatches blog, the movie also co-stars another famous actor besides James France: the Suunto Vector.  You see the watch so darn much in the movie — for obvious reasons  — that the watch should be identified in the opening and closing credits.  But I digress.  The movie only proves the awesome functionality and power of this watch.  From withstanding the force of a boulder to giving you the altitude and temperature, it’s no wonder why it got some face time in the movie (for the record, I don’t know if it the Vector was actually worn by Ralston).

So go watch the movie and then go to to get a much more in-depth view of the Vector and other Suunto watches.

ActiveWatches Now a Proud Sponsor of AW4F

June 6, 2010

ActiveWatches is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the “All Wheels for Fibromyalgia” (AW4F) team in their quest to win the famous Race Across America (RAAM), which begins on June 12th.  RAAM is one of the toughest cycling events in the United States, spanning 3,000 miles and 15 states, from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland.   About 40 teams will vie to become the first to reach Annapolis, including AW4F.  However, AW4F’s  goal goes beyond simply winning, but includes raising national awareness for fibromyalgia.  ActiveWatches is proud to contribute to their efforts.  Click here to learn more AW4F, RAAM, ActiveWatches’ sponsorship, and/or to make your own donation to the team’s cause.

The ActiveWatcher and the rest of the ActiveWatches team gives the AW4F’s members a pat on the back and wish them good luck.  As champions in the race’s four-person category in 2009, we feel pretty darn good about the team’s prospects.  Can someone say “REPEAT CHAMPIONS”?!?!
