A Watch For The Trendy Gym Rats

What: o.d.m. "Save The Earth" watch, $100

Why: My sister Maggie, a self-proclaimed gym rat, has always had major watch issues. Her everyday watch, a classic, silver Swiss Army, doesn't really go with her workout attire. Worse than that, the "loose-ish" design of the band creates these strange, icky, dirt smudges on her wrist where sweat builds up from the rubbing motion that occurs when she runs. So this holiday season, I decided to end her watch-wearing issues once and for all: I got her the digital Original Dynamic Minimal (o.d.m.) mysterious V "Save The Earth" watch (no, I don't get the name either).

The watch, which switches between time and calendar with a simple flick of the wrist, features a patented buckle—which only takes a few tries to figure out, I swear—to keep the watch firmly cemented in place. Plus, the band is made from silicon, a poor conductor of heat, meaning it doesn't heat up along with your skin during a long workout (guess who got an "A" in Chem Lab, people).

Personally, I prefer to skip to the gym and keep my silver on. But for Maggie, who loves her trendy gym outfits and actually works out on a regular basis, this is the perfect accessory (o.d.m. watches were dubbed the official timepiece of the MTV Music Awards, to give you a sense of exactly how trendy we're talking here). And, in case you're wondering: yes, I am up for the Sister of the Year award.
