Whether you're hunting, hiking, or simply want to prepare yourself for the unexpected, the survival watches on this list come packed with features to help you in any outdoor scenario. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best survival watch on Amazon.

Chase is a writer and freelance reporter with experience covering a wide range of subjects, from politics to technology. At Ezvid Wiki, he applies his journalistic expertise to a similarly diverse assortment of products, but he tends to focus on travel and adventure gear, drawing his knowledge from a lifetime spent outdoors. He’s an avid biker, hiker, climber, skier, and budget backpacker -- basically, anything that allows him a reprieve from his keyboard. His most recent rovings took him to Peru, where he trekked throughout the Cordillera Blanca. Chase holds a bachelor's in philosophy from Rutgers University in New Jersey (where he's from), and is working toward a master's at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in New York City (where he now lives).
