What do you need in a watch? If it's durability, precision and advanced functionality, then you need a Regulus. Designed with input from current and former U.S. Special Operations personnel, the Regulus is a purpose-built and element-proof watch that's all requirement, no excess.
After years of a smart watch, I was hesitant to love the Regulus. I'm used to having an extension of my phone on my wrist. But after 15 minutes, I didn't miss the constant reachability; in fact, I enjoyed feeling off the grid. And, after 30 minutes of the Regulus, when I smashed my wrist into a counter playing football with my son in the kitchen (we can talk about my parenting skills later), I was grateful that I didn't have a delicate glass face, and instead had something would live up to my level of play. For me, the biggest benefit was the five year battery – not something I have to charge every night.

The Regulus is rugged but sleek, and equally lightweight and durable. And, the display is easy to read, even underwater. With four colors available through GovX (all gunmetal, all black, all sand and multicam), no matter what look you like, you'll find one that perfectly suits you.
At under $150, the Regulus is an unbelievable price for performance. Fifty-four out of 54 reviews on GovX agree: this is a 5 star watch.
Overall, the Regulus watch is an awesome option for any operator, whether your days in the field are behind you or on the horizon. No matter what you have going on in your life, the Regulus can keep up – especially if you like playing football in the kitchen.
