Important Tips for Buying a best watches for yourself

How to choose a waterproof watch for yourself or anyone else? 

Water-resistant watches are an essential part of a weekend camping trip with friends, whether you go for a morning jog along the beach or hiking in the mountains. You may come into contact with water regardless of the type of activity you engage in. 

With a waterproof watch, you do not have to be concerned about rain or high tides when taking part in any adventure. Whether you are looking for the cheapest, classiest, or most technologically advanced options, you will find the right one to fit your needs. You can only do that once you know what you’re shopping for.

Water (IP) resistance rating

The water resistance rating determines the amount of pressure it can handle without getting damaged. Watches are classified according to their water resistance, either in meters or bars. Each bar of water resistance is equivalent to ten meters. Thus, a watch with ten bars of water resistance is equivalent to one hundred meters of water resistance. It would help if you didn’t take a water resistance rating literally, even though it can be a good indicator of what your watch can handle. 

Underwater usage 

It’s common for people to think they can press the buttons on their waterproof digital watch while it’s submerged in water. They then find that water has penetrated the ladies’ watch and is now inside it.

When attempting to press the buttons on a digital watch while submerged, you will damage the buttons. In general, only digital watches whose water resistance rating is “DIVER 200M” or similar, rather than just “200M water-resistant”, are considered safe for underwater use. 

Handy water-bound features

Having a range of functions on a digital watch is one thing that makes them wonderful. For water activities, this watch has the following functions: depth gauge, tide indicator, barometer, stopwatch, rotating bezel, light.

Check the brand 

It’s best to stick to the big-name brands that have repeatedly proven themselves to make quality digital watches to navigate the minefield of dodgy digital watches available on the market. That’s not to say you can’t find quality products from smaller brands, but you’ll need to make sure you’re buying quality if you go down that path. Some of the top names you’re sure to find on the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network include Casio, G-Shock, Seiko, Citizen, and more. 

Stainless steel or resin casing 

In digital watches, resin cases and stainless-steel cases both serve practical purposes. Producing resin cases is cost-effective, lightweight, and tough. The choice of a resin-cased watch will probably be fine for you if you don’t plan to wear it forever and you’re not looking for something that will last forever.

Resin cases have the main drawback of bleaching somewhat over time, becoming somewhat shinier, and rusting. Resin is simply another word for plastic. A stainless steel-cased digital watch will be heavier and more expensive than one with a resin case.

Stainless steel is more durable than resin and can easily last longer. You can usually polish stainless steel to remove scratches. Additionally, stainless steel cases give a watch an overall feeling of quality.

Inverted or standard digital display

How is an inverted display different from a standard digital display? An inverted display shows white numbers on a black background, whereas a standard display shows black numerals on a white background.

Suppose you plan to use your watch while diving or scuba diving; you’ll need legibility. When scuba diving, you don’t want to wear a watch that isn’t readable enough in murky or darker water. It is better to use a standard digital display for legibility reasons. 

As much as we like good inverted digital displays, their legibility generally isn’t as good. When scuba diving, the worst thing that can happen to you is that your inverted display won’t let you see how long you’ve been underwater.
