With Summer now coming to an end and the colder months getting closer, we’re already looking for ways we can get some October sunshine. If, like us, you’ve already got that holiday booked, you might be wondering what on earth you’re going to pack!

for city lights and lots of sights

There’s only one word that comes to mind when you say city break and that’s: WALKING! If you’re planning a trip that’s more sight-seeing than sun lounger, then the first thing you’ll need is shoes! We’d go for at least two pairs, comfy trainers to get you easily from A to B and something
smarter for watching the sunset with a glass of wine.

Lightweight basics are another city break staple; take neutral colours so you have plenty of outfit combinations and smarter pieces for layering in the evening.

When it comes to accessories, let your watch be your standout piece. The Reflex Active Series 10 comes with running, walking, hiking, cycling and gym activity tracking features so no matter how you decide to tour the city, your watch will keep tabs on those steps! Saw a nice restaurant you’d like to go back to but can’t for the life of you remember where you found it? The GPS connection tracks your routes throughout the day, so you can easily review your route after a long day of exploring. The Series 10’s bright colourway also means you can easily add some colour to your outfit.


Oh, we do like to be beside the sea! For the sun worshippers here, you can’t go wrong with fun swimwear, look for bold block colours or if you’re feeling brave go for a bright pattern and finish off the look with a simple white shirt or a cover up.

The fun shouldn’t stop once you’re out the pool, for those cooler evenings swap your flip flops for sandals or espadrilles and your swimsuit for some cool shorts or a floaty dress.

Want to add a pop of colour, but a hot pink swimsuit isn’t for you? Keep the swimwear simple and brighten up your daytime look with Series 09. Our IP68 water resistant Series are ideal for a beach or poolside holiday and with bright new colours you’re sure to make a splash. Just don’t
forget your SPF!


If the Great Outdoors is more your thing, practicality will be the best option- think cool linen shirts and hats to help you stay protected from the sun. If camping in the wild is more your thing, make sure you pack a few extra layers for the evenings, think warm jumpers and thick socks!

For the runners and hikers out there, pair your trusty trainers or walking boots with our Reflex Active Series 08, slim and lightweight, this fitness tracker is the perfect partner for those long days climbing- plus the hydration and breathing reminders will help you stay hydrated and remember to stop for a minute so you can really take in that view!
