Make the world a better place and look good while doing it!
Flex Watches was created in 2011 in Southern California on the premise of “people helping people.” The founders first built a watch to benefit impoverished children of Rojo Gomez Mexico. Now the brand has dozens of modern styles and partners with several charitable organizations supporting veterans, cancer patients and more. With each watch purchased, Flex Watches donates to one of their non profit partners, helping to support their efforts to combat hunger or educate children, for example.
Our watches, the black and gold interchangeable watch and the Venice sports watch, both raise funds for impoverished children. (Looks like we have good taste – both these styles are currently sold out, but will be restocked in early 2015!) Each purchase of these watches provides five meals to starving children in the community. Flex Watches also has collections to help raise money for the Special Olympics and Team KO, which educates at risk youth on the benefits of education and healthy living.
Flex Watches collaborate with athletes, artists and celebrities to create unique designs and collections. Browse their styles online and don’t miss the combo packs for extra customization. They have some really amazing ambassadors on board and we are excited to see what creative projects they come up with next.
The watches come in a variety of colors and combinations. You can change up the look with removable faces to pair with multiple bands or even swap with friends. Flex Watches have water resistant casings, durable silicone bands and low profiles. We’ve worn ours to the gym, hiking, and out on the town. The athletic look doesn’t keep them from looking good for daily activities.
They’re comfortable, reliable, stylish, and they help raise money for deserving causes. What’s not to like? Make a colorful statement with a functional sports watch and benefit a cause you care about with Flex Watches.
