This one is for the ladies that love Pink! This digital watch from Moulin combines utility, style, and affordability so well that I just can’t help but recommend it.
If you’ve never heard about Moulin, that’s probably because they are a direct manufacturer’s brand. They are based in Hong Kong and have been making watches since 1991. Their watches are generally aimed at people looking for cute watches that are very inexpensive.
You are getting a digital watch that looks very cute, tells you the time and date, has an alarm function, and is very comfortable to wear at the same time. Whether you need something that looks good and tells you the time without taking your phone out of the pocket or you just need a backup watch that you don’t care about losing, this digital watch is definitely not to be overlooked.
Casio needs no introduction. It is one of the most famous watch brands around the globe. If you’ve not heard about them, you probably haven’t explored many watches yet. It’s also entirely possible that you’ve heard of their other products such as calculators, musical instruments, etc because it literally feels like they are everywhere. Casio is very well-known for making durable, reliable, and affordable products. And that is exactly what the Casio Baby-G watch is.
This digital watch combines the best of both worlds, analog, and digital into one cute package. The Casio Baby-G has a black dial with pink accents with a classic G-Shock like build. When you glance at the front, you’ll notice the hour, minute, and the second hand. With it, you’ll see that it conveniently displays the time in digital format as well as the day and date too.
Additionally, you can change to 12-hour format or 24-hour format whenever you wish to easily on the Baby-G. It comes with a cool amber LED Backlight which adds to the appeal. But the feature list doesn’t stop there! You also get the stopwatch, ability to set 5 alarms, a countdown timer, world time with 29 time-zones, and more!
The Casio Baby-G is no doubt a great digital watch for taking along to running, the gym, or just casual wear. You can be sure that you’re gonna get a lot of compliments and that the watch will last you a long time. If you’re a fan of the G-shock series, think no further.
I’ve already told you how renowned Casio is for their durable, stylish timepieces. They’ve been making great watches for a long time with some classic looks in their portfolio. The Casio Women’s LA11WB-1 is one such classic digital watch that is simply timeless and loved by all.
It’s thin, durable, water-resistant to the point that you can swim with it comfortably. It has a countdown timer to time those sprints or workout sessions too. It displays just the time on the watch face but with the click of a button, you can check the date too. The watch can also alert you at a certain time with its alarm feature if you do require that.
If you need something to wear to the gym, swimming, boating, or just love the look, go ahead and grab this one. You won’t be disappointed.
Timex has a long history in the world of watchmaking and their watches are loved all around the globe. Chances are you’ve already seen a friend or family member either have a Timex digital watch or at least have gifted a Timex.
The same can be said for the Timex Ironman series watches as it has been very popular ever since they’ve debuted in the market, which was about 32 years ago. This particular Timex Ironman digital watch carries on the tradition of being a very high utility for sportspersons. At a glance, it displays the date, time, and day. The watch is well-made and is durable and can be worn to the gym, yoga class, or running. It carries that classic Timex Ironman looks as not much has changed in the series since their inception.
You get a 30-lap memory stopwatch in this watch which will come very handy on those days you spend on the track. It also carries the alarm, timer functions, and is water-resistant till 100m. You can take it swimming but I suggest you leave it behind when you go scuba-diving.
Another Casio digital watch makes it to our list and this one’s for the retro style lovers reading this. This one’s a fabulous pickup if you love that vintage digital watch look!
This Casio Ladies Digital Retro Watch comes in a silver finish with a case that’s made of resin with an acrylic glass. The band is stainless steel so the watch really feels lightweight and easy to carry. The case diameter is about 28.6mm so it does not feel very big, in fact, I find it to be a perfect size.
On the features side, it comes with a very bright LED backlight which explains the ‘illuminator’ labeling. You also find the stopwatch, timer, 12h/24h time setting, and auto-calendar on this digital watch. It uses the quartz movement and you can expect an accuracy of +- 30 seconds per month. Overall, this style has exemplary style and great ease of use with its at-a-glance display of date, time, and day. You really can’t go wrong with this.
The next digital watch I can recommend to you without hesitation in spite of its price is the Nixon Women’s Siren SS Digital Watch. Nixon is a US brand that makes most of its watches either in Japan or Switzerland (depending on the model and movement used). They are currently present in over 80 countries so you can rest assured about their quality.
Now, when you get the Siren SS Digital, the first thing you’ll notice about it is its distinct style. It’s a blend of a functional but fashionable look. It comes in 4 alluring styles, namely – black/fatigue, rose gold, silver, and gold. The silver model is the most unique of them as it comes with a marble design strap. Now, that one may not appeal to everybody (but it is a really stand-out design, do check it out) so I am suggesting you check the rose gold variant as it can go with almost everything. If you want a more rugged, jungle kind of style then the black/fatigue variant is for you. All of the variants have their own appeal, so be sure to check each one out before finalizing the right one for you.
On the feature side, the Nixon digital watch does not compromise. Apart from the usual digital watch features, the watch has a unique date or tide feature. Yes, it shows you the tide at-a-glance! The Nixon Siren SS does not disappoint at all and will most definitely become your daily-wear.
I promise this is the last Casio digital watch on this list but I can’t help but recommend another Casio Vintage model. This one is out of their retro collection is immensely popular across the globe. And I am sure you can already guess why it is so popular!
Call me biased but this is one of the best Rose Gold watches you’ll find in this price segment. The Casio B640WC-5AEF carries the signature vintage look and does exactly what it should. It gives you the day, date, and time at a glance while looking fabulous on your wrist. If you’re looking to gift a digital watch to your wife or girlfriend, stop reading and just get this. The watch looks classy and is super-functional without a hefty price-tag. No room for disappointment.
On the feature front, you get the stopwatch, timer, 12h/24h time setting, and amber LED that lights up bright enough to make it easy to read. The watch is 50m water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about it when you are around water. If you’re looking for an excellent digital watch, this is for you.

So I don’t think you’d be surprised that I’ve included them on the list.
