Looking for a low profile women's digital watch
July 17, 2018 5:15 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a watch that is small, not bulky. I want it to be digital, preferably colorful or with a design. It being waterproof or water resistant is preferred. I would like something like this watch in a bright color or design. I don't care if it's women or men's, although feminine and not super sporty would be nice. I don't want a baby-g. I hate the round face and the super sportyness of it.

Brand or specific model recommendations would be great. Basically, I'm looking for something like if swatch had digital watches.

Swatch does have digital watches!

And Casio has some g-shocks in the more square shape that do come in a few colors (yellow!). They might be too big, but just in case, they're here and start with "DW5600."

Even if you don't want the step counter, a Fitbit Alta might suit your needs. There are aftermarket bands in every color imaginable that you can swap out. I had one of their earlier models and was always bugged by how big and sporty it was, but this one is a major improvement in that regard. In theory the display turns on when you lift your arm, but in my experience you have to tap it.

It is however only splashproof unfortunately.

Freestyle watches are reliably waterproof and come in a lot
Of colors and styles that seem similar to what you’re looking for.

I have been wearing that very Casio in pink for years now, and I like it a lot. The buckle came free from its axle after a lot of winter gloves and bicycling, but a jeweler replaced it for nothing, so holy cow, bonus. I did, however, replace the entire guts of it with one from the black model I bought after the buckle failed. The battery was getting low, and I couldn't quite see how to get just the battery free in a graceful fashion. And honestly the strap-keeper loop is getting a bit gouged at the corners. And the strap is a bit darker than the face now. Don't know if that's contact with my jeans or solar bleaching or what.

In short, I like this watch a whole lot, but if you wear it every day for years it shows its age.

You may want to look at digital watches for boys. This one looks fun.
