Ion bracelets have become a staple on the course, their touted benefit being the negative ions the emit help counter balance the positive ions in our everyday life that are cause for concern (cell phones, for example). Yet from a fashion standpoint wearing multiple wrist accessories is not very appealing to some golfers.

These Ion<Time sport watches ($85) are backed with IonLoops negative ion magnets, come in four different colors (black, navy, orange and green), and are durable and waterproof; perfect for any athlete and especially golfers.
