Wearables do a lot these days. A serious GPS running watch can now track your distance traveled, your average heart rate, your VO2 max, your calories burned, and your ground contact time (whatever that means), among a billion other biometric and pedometric statistics.

It’s all very impressive, but it can be a bit much. Some people (like me) don’t want to have to download an app before going out on a run. We just want to know how long we’re out running, and whether we’ll make it home in time for dinner.

Enter: the Timex Mako Silicone Strap Digital Watch, which thanks to a discount is now just $25. The product specs are intentionally spartan. It tells the time in up to two time zones, it’ll time you, it’s waterproof, and it’s got a light-up watch dial. This is the sort of watch we all ran with back in high school, and I can promise, it gets the job done just fine. Find it here; it’s available in three colors.
