How to Choose a Men’s Waterproof Watch

Picking a waterproof watch is almost the same as choosing any other type of watch. You have to consider a lot of things aside from its water-resistance rating. However, we can make it simple for you by providing you with this guide below.

Smartwatch or Traditional Digital or Analog Watch

When buying a watch, the first thing that you should think about is if you prefer a modern smartwatch or would like to stick to the classic watch - analogue or digital. Each has its pros and cons.

A traditional watch, mechanical and automatic ones in general, don't need batteries for them to work. They become less accurate over time, but they are easy to recalibrate. Their core strength is that they are robust and can be used for diving.

On the other hand, a smartwatch can provide you with comfort and accuracy. It even pairs with your phone for more convenience. However, they are more fragile compared to traditional watches and needs to be charged daily or weekly depending on usage.

Accuracy

Smartwatches are ahead in the game when it comes to precision. Mechanical or automatic watches, however, are likely to lose their accuracy over time and needs to be tuned up again. Every day, they lose or gain a few seconds, and at the end of the year, those seconds accumulate and becomes minutes.

If your focus is to make sure you get the right time all the time, then you should refrain from automatic or mechanical watches. Quartz watches are fine, but you have to change its battery after a couple of months though.

Metal, Rubber, or Leather Straps

The last thing you should consider when buying a new waterproof watch is its strap. Most of the time, people ignore the strap as it can be changed. However, why do that and waste money if you can choose the strap from the very start. 

There are three kinds of straps to choose: metal, rubber, and leather. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. But what matters most is the type you're most comfortable with because a watch is going to wrap your wrist every day.

Conclusion

Waterproof watches are your upgraded version of regular watches. They allow you to tell time in and out of the water. If you hate taking your chronometer off when taking a bath, a waterproof watch is all that you need.
