While illumination is a must in a low-light self-defense situation, handgun owners are often at a disadvantage with many light options on the market, due to the necessity of removing their support hand from their pistol in order to operate a separate light. The SureFire 2211 Signature Watch eliminates that downfall, allowing handgunners to keep both hands on their firearm.

The 2211 watch features an integrated LED wrist light that is built into the unit at an angle, providing illumination that is directed in front of wearers when they add their support hand to a secure firing grip. The light features 300 lumens of output on its maximum setting, ensuring that those defending themselves in low-light environments have the illumination necessary for adequate target identification at close-to-medium distances.

The SureFire 2211 Signature Watch is constructed with the company's MaxVision beam, which provides a wide wall of light perfect for navigating environments with a drawn firearm. The light can also be used on its own to provide users with more information about their surroundings in low light or complete darkness.

The 2211 features three different modes. The maximum output of 300 lumens is designed to ensure that wearers have a tactical advantage in a nighttime defensive environment, providing a total run time of 1 hour. The second setting runs at 60 lumens for 4 hours, giving users just enough light for navigation. The third setting of 15 lumens offers a total run time of 13 hours and is perfect for close-up work, like reading maps.

The light is incorporated into an anodized-aluminum watch body and is powered through a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is refueled through the use of an included micro USB charging cable. The watch features an LED fuel gauge that notifies users when it's time to recharge.

The 2211 Signature Watch is also fully compatible with a headstrap accessory sold separately, which easily converts the unit into a powerful headlamp. The watch weighs in at 3.75 ounces and measures 2.36 inches long. The suggested retail price on the SureFire 2211 Signature Watch is $199.
