The Mens Health November cover star didnt have a quick rise to fame. He honed his chops the old-fashioned way, earning a bachelors degree in acting at Stanford University and a masters at NYU, then worked his way through various T.V., film, and theater productions for years before landing roles in series like The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us that earned him a bunch of awards and made him a household name.

That is to say, Brown isnt any kind of flash-in-the-pan talent. Hes not going anywhere, and you can expect to see much more of him in the future.

The same general principle applies to watches, like the Rolex timepiece Brown sports on the November cover. There are a number of cool smartwatches available right now that are great for fitness, allowing you to monitor your heart rate or even coach you through a workout , but the models, and the technology they use, are constantly evolving and will always be replaced with something newer and better.
