Designed to withstand all the rough-and-tumble rigors of play, the Nike Gorge kids' digital watch offers a chunky, youthful style and large, easy-to-read display to help get your rugrat home in time for dinner. It has an aluminum face shield that takes blows without flinching and a stainless steel buckle and back plate that can withstand serious play. The durable pre-curved olive polyurethane strap makes the watch comfortable enough to wear all day long, and it features a strap-keeper post to prevent the strap from flapping.
This simplified digital chronograph watch features a stopwatch as well as date display and alarm. The red display (with large black numerals) is framed by a silver aluminum ring. Other features include water resistance to 50 meters (165 feet), a scratch-resistant mineral glass crystal, and one-touch backlighting for quick visibility in low light conditions.
At its core, Nike understands the need for play, no matter what your age. And as Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman would say--if you have a body, you're an athlete. Nike's line of youth watches blends the advanced materials and drive for excellence built into the company's adult watches with the same mix of sophistication, guts, and imagination as the kids who wear them. They made to fit kid-sized wrists and sport fun, contemporary designs that will look great in school and out on the playfield.
Beyond shoes--from watches and eyewear to carry gear and even socks--Nike is committed to giving athletes of every make, model and body style, who compete and recreate in ways never before imagined, the very best performance product. Here are just a few important dates in Nike's journey:
- American record-holder Steve Prefontaine becomes the first major track athlete to wear Nike brand shoes in 1973.
- At the 1976 Olympic Trials, Nike shoes are seen in abundance for the first time--worn by young, rising stars in both middle- and long-distance events.
- The first athlete to win an Olympic medal wearing Nike shoes is British runner, Steve Ovett in the 1980 Moscow Games
- The Just Do It advertising campaign began in 1988, and is now ensconced in the Americana exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum.
