Flex Watches


I was recently introduced to Flex Watches, a really cool company who do much more than just make stylish watches... 10 Colors... 10 Charities... 10 Percent.

Although this isn't really a golf product, I was really pumped to review these watches.  My excitement was not based solely on the fact that Flex Watches have a unique style, but also because each color helps to raise awareness and funds for a separate charity, very cool!  The watches themselves are sleek, simple and stylish, but the coolest feature is that all the bands and face-plates are all interchangeable.

The face-plates easily pop out and clip into the straps giving you countless color combination varieties to put together.  At first I wasn't sure how much interchanging I would do, but now I find myself mixing and matching the watches to match my daily attire.

With 10% of the proceeds going towards charity, it makes these watches even more desirable... Let's take a look at the colors and the charities they represent...
