Choosing the right women's digital watch for you or others can seem a little intimidating at first. Thoughts and fears can run rampant: how much should I pay, should it be athletic or dressy? Here are answers to some of the most asked questions about women's digital watches.
Digital watch for women: Everything You Should Know About
Sure, a leather or metal strap watch isn't a cheap investment, but when you consider the shelf life of a women's digital watch, you start to understand why, despite having all the technology in the world, we're still turning to watches.
What is the best digital watch?
Here are the things you should take into consideration when purchasing a women's digital watch.
- Battery: Since a dead watch is useless, purchasing a women's digital watch with high-quality batteries is important. Women's digital watches with internal recharging capabilities are the best. Solar capacity and long battery life – along with easily replaced batteries – are desirable.
- Readability: Women's digital watches have a lot of information on their screens. Make sure that you can easily read the data you need on your watch face day or night.
- Resistance: You should prioritise functionality over visual beauty. A women's digital watch that can handle tear and wear is important. If it can't take a beat in harsh weather, it's a cheap imitation that isn't worth the investment.
How long does a digital watch last?
The battery in a women's digital watch typically lasts on average 4 to 6 years, but may be as low as 2 years and as high as 10 years, depending mainly on the type of women's digital watch, and the amount of backlight and alarm used.
You’ll find that many women's digital watches will advertise a particular battery life, and while that’s a handy general guide to work with, there are actually quite a few factors involved in how long your watch battery will last which are beyond the control of the manufacturers. This includes backlight and alarm usage, battery age, watch age, and water damage, and corrosion.
Are digital watches in style?
Our own passion for women's digital watches has been going on for decades, but it didn't start that way. Serious watchmaking was challenged by the tsunami-like advent of analog quartz watches that appeared with the launch of the Seiko Astron in 1969. Digital did not reach until a few years later, but it took time for prices to fall and for acceptance to rise. Women's digital watches are a popular choice now. Technology and features have evolved, as has the degree and variety of styles.
How do I choose a watch?
By taking these six easy steps, you're on your way to finding a beautiful watch.
- Consider your lifestyle.
- Have a budget in mind.

Almost all watches in the world of watches can be put in one of the two major categories – analog or digital. A women's digital watch indicates the time by the digits on the display that change with the time change. Women's digital watches are well ahead in terms of functionality and value for money than analog watches. Odds are the usability you'll find on a $20 Casio women's digital watch is going to be better than you'll get on a $1000 Swiss analog watch.
In that respect, there is absolutely no rivalry. If you're searching for convenience, it's digital all the way. Forty years later, women's digital watches are definitely getting attention thanks to their 80's retro style and affordability.
