Finding a watch that is going to suit all of your needs while you’re surfing can sometimes be difficult, but we’ve got your back! We’ve picked through a selection of different watches to fit your needs and your pocketbook both! Let’s start by talking about some general information you need to know about watches. Afterward, we’ll get right to the reviews, so get ready to take a look at some amazing timepieces!
Material: What the watch is made of can tell you how durable it’s going to be, as well as how well the waterproofing is going to hold up. You’ll want something plastic or rubber to fit both of these needs.
Water Resistant Depth: This is the depth to which the watch will still work. Taking it below these depths may result in damage to the watch, which may include complete failure. If you frequently dive deep, keep this in mind.
Case Size: The size of the case is basically how big the main face of the watch is. Smaller cases are going to be harder to see when you need to read the watch at a glance or on the go.
Display: The display is either going to be analog (classic clock face with three hands and numbers printed around the edges) or digital (the time is already presented as it should be read). It’s up to your preference which you get.
Movement: The options for movement are either going to be quartz (of varying types) or automatic. Quartz keeps time accurately, whereas automatic relies on the passage of time. This might not be accurate all the time.
Warranty: The warranty protects you from any errors in the manufacturing process. As long as you’re under the warranty period, any damage from normal use could get you a refund or replacement without any additional cost.
