New York, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2012
With Father’s Day coming up soon (June 17!), Cheapism.com, a review site dedicated to finding quality, low-cost products, has published a new buying guide that identifies the best cheap watches under $35. The top picks for gifts: the Timex Easy Reader T20041 (starting at $29), which makes the cut for being durable, accurate, and easy to read, and the Casio WS210HD-1AVCF (starting at $33), which stands out with its rich feature set, rugged build, and precise timekeeping.
Cheapism’s buying guide also highlights two cheap watches for women. The Timex 1440 T5J151 (starting at $12) is stylish and comfortable and includes several sports-oriented features. The Casio LTP1237D-7A (starting at $21) is simple, elegant, and durable.
All the top picks boast battery-powered quartz movement and mineral crystal covers, and are water resistant up to at least 99 feet.
Watches reviews indicate that shoppers should have no trouble finding a handsome, reliable budget watch that fits dad’s style (or theirs), be it a classic analog watch or a more feature-oriented digital watch. The analog Timex Easy Reader, one of the top cheap watches for men, boasts a date display and the company’s Indiglo technology, which illuminates the watch in the dark. The digital Casio WS210HD-1AVCF sports features that include a graph to track tides and moon phases, a calendar, and five alarms.
For women, the digital Timex 1440 T5J151 comes with an alarm, the Indiglo nightlight, and a 24-hour countdown timer. The women’s Casio LTP1237D-7A is an analog timepiece that makes up for its lack of features with an upscale aesthetic that can take users from daily activities to special events.
Two low-cost watches that don’t rise to the occasion are the men’s Armitron 408177, a digital watch that users say is hard to read and struggles to hold the settings, and the women’s Geneva SW-6886, which garners complaints about durability and isn’t water resistant but has plenty of bling.
