multi-alarm woman's watch
February 23, 2012 10:42 PM   Subscribe

My googling is inadequate. I need a woman's watch, a small one, with TWO OR MORE daily alarms, for a friend who needs reminders to take her medications. I'm hoping to find a watch that costs less than $30 (the only one I can find is $70)

I've googled enough to prove my skills are inadequate. Can anyone point me to a low-cost watch that won't look horrendous on a woman's wrist, and which doesn't cost a lot? (money is tight).

I'm not sure if you consider this horrendous or not, but the Timex Ironman women's watch has 3 alarms. I got mine at Target for close to $40 but it looks like you can get it as cheap as $31 online. It's a sports-type watch so it may not be her style, but it's not large, and it's lasted me several years now. It also has a timer function in addition to the 3 alarms.

I found this one with 5 alarms at Walmart, $24.00, available other places too and maybe for less. It's not particularly women's style but it could be OK.

Go to Walgreens. This is what they are really good for.

Alternate solution: If the person has a cell phone, they may be able to set up multiple alarms on the phone.

Thanks! My friend doesn't have a cellphone so I've ordered the 5-alarm watch.
