Any man who wants to keep his timepieces safe from water damage needs a watch that is impervious to water. Whether you’re swimming, boating, or simply clumsy from time to time, these watches are designed to withstand even the most rigorous conditions. While there are many waterproof watches available on the market today, only certain brands stand out as truly exceptional.
There’s a lot to consider when it comes to choosing the right watch that will suit your lifestyle. Hence, we’ve created a list of things you should consider when choosing a waterproof watch and the best ones in the market now.
Who Needs to Buy a Waterproof Watch?
Waterproof watches are a great choice for those with active lifestyles. They are designed to withstand water and keep working even when they are submerged in it. These watches can be used in different types of activities, such as swimming, diving, and snorkelling. They are durable, easy to use, and comfortable.
The primary benefit is that it can resist elements such as sweat, rain, and snow. It will also protect the internal workings from damage due to small droplets of water or moisture. These watches are typically made with mineral glass crystal or sapphire crystal for added durability.
The most common types of waterproof watches include:
Casual sport watches: These are perfect for everyday wear and go well with casual clothing. They have high-contrast dials that make it easy to read the time at first glance and have a range of features such as an alarm, chronograph, countdown timer, and backlight options.
Diver’s watches: Diver’s watches have at least 100-meter depth rating (ISO 6425 certification) and are designed specifically for underwater use. They often have large faces so the wearer can easily read the time while wearing diving gear, as well as luminescent hands and markers that glow in low light conditions. These watches also come with unidirectional rotating bezels so divers can keep track of how long they’ve been submerged.
There are several other benefits to wearing a waterproof watch, including:
Protection – designed to protect its internal parts from water damage. This means that even if you accidentally drop it in the sink, pool or bathtub, your watch will continue to work without issue.
Durability – able to withstand accidental bumps, scratches and other forms of impact from everyday use without damaging their internal parts. They’re also made from durable materials like stainless steel and titanium that can withstand long-term use.
Comfort – made with ergonomic designs that conform to your wrist for maximum comfort and support when worn on a daily basis.
How to Choose A Waterproof Watch?
Choosing a watch, in general, can be a complicated task, as you have to consider a lot of details, like colour, style, occasion you will wear it on, price, materials, and the list goes on. Just add one more metric, waterproof, and you will get an even longer list.
If you’re looking for the best waterproof watch, there are a few things you should know. You’ll want to consider your activity level, the type of water you’ll be in, and how much money you’re willing to spend.
- Activity Level
If you’re an active person who likes to get out and about, then a waterproof watch is an excellent investment. These watches can withstand all sorts of conditions—from snowboarding to scuba diving—and will keep on ticking no matter what you throw at them.
- Water Type
There are different levels of water resistance that different watches offer. Most watches are considered “water resistant” up to 50 meters (164 feet), but some can go as deep as 200 meters (656 feet). If you plan on swimming or snorkelling, then a watch with higher water resistance might be best for you. Just make sure it’s not too deep!
- Money Matters
The cost of a waterproof watch varies depending on what kind of model you want and what features come with it. The most basic model will likely be under $100 while more complex models could cost anywhere from $2000-5000. If money isn’t an issue, then by all means go ahead and splurge on the most expensive model available.
How Do You Know If Your Watch is Waterproof?
“Waterproof” is no longer allowed as a term on watches because it can be misleading. Still, you can use your watch safely if you know its water-resistance rating which you can find on your watch case. It’s measured in meters or feet and labelled on the watch case by ATM (atmospheres), which indicates how well your watch will withstand contact with water. If you’re looking to buy a waterproof watch, here are some tips to help you get the best one for your needs.
Make sure the watch is rated to be waterproof at a depth of at least 50 meters, or 165 feet. This can usually be found on the packaging or in the description on the website. If it’s not there, ask before purchasing!
If you plan on using your watch in saltwater environments, look for a watch that has been tested for corrosion resistance as well. Most watches will be fine with fresh water exposure, but if you want something more durable for aquatic activities, this is another feature to look for when shopping around for your new timepiece.
The most important thing about any waterproof watch is that it keeps accurate time and does not leak water into its casing after being submerged (and then removed) from water depths of up to 50 meters (165 feet). So make sure that when buying online or in store, they have been tested by an independent lab and have passed those tests with flying colours!
A good waterproof watch offers several features that make it stand out from other options in its category:
Durability – They are made out of durable materials that can withstand being submerged underwater for long periods of time without sustaining any damage.
Style – These watches look good on anyone and come in a variety of stylish designs so you can find one that fits your personal style perfectly!
Important Note! Waterproof vs Water-Resistant Watches
The term waterproof means they can withstand some exposure to moisture without damage. This is because they have been designed with seals around their cases that prevent water from entering through natural openings like screw holes or pushers. However, the reality is that any watch will leak if you apply enough water pressure on it. That’s why you should check their water-resistance depth and make sure it matches the intended use.
