There is a style revolution going on for ladies digital watches, as practical and functional gets a make-over!
Digital watches are efficient, easy to read, and often display more information or have more functions than an analogue watch, making them a very practical choice. Until recently, however, they tended to look practical too. If women wanted a stylish or pretty design they usually had to look at analogue watches instead – but now this has all changed! Read on to find some of the stylish digital options for women that are now available.
Casio – Baby-G
One of the first brands to realise this gap in the market was Casio, who released their Baby-G range of ladies watches way back in 1990. These watches were modelled on the tough and durable yet stylish range of G-Shock watches, and were designed to have the same capabilities but with more feminine designs. These designs are still going strong as shown by the popular models below.
This Casio Baby-G watch
has the iconic styling typical of these designs. The digital display is clear and easy to read, and shows all the various functions such as world time, timer and alarms. It is also 200m water resistant, making it a great all-round watch.
This black Baby-G watch
takes a slightly different approach, combining the main analogue dial with small sub-dials for extra features, including the day, date and alarm. The subtle black and great design creates a stylish finish for a great looking watch.
