Waterproof Watches for Women
Finding a perfect waterproof watch is never easy, and in order to assist in narrowing down the options, here is a list of some of the bestselling waterproof watches for women:
Rip Curl Women’s A2696G Waterproof Green Watch
Rip Curl, as you may have guessed, is a company that was started with surfers as their primary audience. As a result you can be sure that each of their models has been tested for water resistance, whether that water is fresh or salty. The A2696G is one of their more affordable watches, and does not includes advanced features like tide tracking. While you should have no problems swimming or showering with the Rip Curl on your wrist, diving is not recommended, and such an attribute would only increase the price. For a simple waterproof watch that’s easy on your wallet the Rip Curl A2696G is a great choice.
Casio Women’s BG169R-4 Baby-G Waterproof Watch
This casual pink Casio watch is water resistant to an impressive 200 m (660 ft), which makes it a good fit even for professional marine activity and prolonged exposure to water. It has a digital display that features an electric backlight with afterglow, countdown timer, stopwatch, world time, daily alarm and 12/24 hour formats. The band is made of resin with buckle closure, and should do a good job resisting nature’s elements. The Casio is a great watch that should hold up to any lifestyle needs of the modern woman, but may not be the best fit for the office or formal events.
Nixon Women’s Small Time Teller Waterproof Watch
This is a rather minimalistic round watch that sports a logo at 3 o’clock and a triple gasket molded polycarbonate crown. It comes in many different color variations, and is suitable for a variety of personality types. The case is on the small side and does not take up too much real estate on the wrist. Also included in the mix is a Polyurethane wristband with patented locking looper, further adding to the durability of this timepiece, and considerably stronger than any leather counterpart. The buckle system may be hard to handle for some, causing a bit of a hassle if you’re often taking off this watch. If you’re like most people though and only taking it on/off twice a day than it shouldn’t be an issue.
Invicta Women’s 6895 Pro-Diver Mother-of-Pearl Waterproof Watch
This timepiece is perfect for those swimmers who still want to show off some class, and is quite an eye catcher. Invicta is quite experienced building dive watches and has many to choose from. This particular version is a little more feminine that the rest, with a smaller case size and soft coloring. The watch features a two-tone color with a mother-of-pearl dial that has a magnified date window located at 3 the o’clock, as well as a unidirectional bezel hat with elapsed time engraving. It’s water resistant to 100 m (330 ft), which makes it suitable for both swimming and snorkeling. The wristband is made from stainless steel, with fold over clasp and secure, double push button closure. If you like the feel of stainless steel and are looking for a cost-effective waterproof watch, this Invicta diver is a great choice.
Rip Curl Women’s A296 Surf Watch
The Echo watch is slightly more professional than the other Rip Curl watch on this list, and with only black coloring it would not look out of place in the office our out to dinner. The case is made out of light hardened plastic with a comfortable silicone band. The minimalist dial sports a logo along with rose gold toned hands and hour markers. It’s water resistant to 330 feet (100 M), making it suitable for swimming or snorkeling, and has also been widely tested for durability in marine environments. For a simple and reliable waterproof watch for every setting it is a great option.
Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Classic Waterproof Watch
This sports watch was made and marketed for triathlon athletes, with a cutout resin band that has a buckle closure. The design looks just out of this world, with its diamond shaped face and a wide array of colors, although most of them seem to be a shade of purple.
It has many cool features, including 100-hour chronograph with lap and split times, Indiglo night light, lap counter (up to 99), the 100-hour countdown timer that has Stop and Repeat functions, dated training log with best lap and average lap and total time functions. It’s also water resistant to 330 feet (100 M).
The main flaw with this excellent piece of sports equipment is its durability, as it’s not made out of the most durable material. This is not likely to become an issue for typical use cases though.
