The Expert Solar’s spare, Euro-cool design and titanium case conceal a wealth of useful digital gadgetry behind its analog face, like an altimeter, a weather monitor, and a compass that swings into action with one touch.

(CT Scuderia)

CT Scuderia Fibra di Carbonio 10131

Scuderia is known in Europe for its Italian-designed, racing-inspired timepieces. This model is all about its namesake carbon ­fiber, which lends eye-catching texture to the face as well as lightness. But what stand out most are the pushers along the top edge of the case, à la classic stopwatches.

(Bulova)

Bulova Men’s Curv Chronograph 

Because the human wrist isn’t flat, Bulova created the first curved chronograph, which results in a lower profile (and good conversation fodder). The unusual shape feels comfy on the wrist and reduces glare nicely, and the five-hand, 12-hour chrono proves useful when you want to save your phone battery.

The Best Fitness Trackers of 2017

The newest crop of wearables are cleverer than ever. (Spire) Spire The Spire won’t measure heart rate or really anything beyond the number of steps you’ve taken.
