How to Choose the Best Travel Watch

When you're traveling, a watch is essential. It's important to keep track of time in order to avoid missing flights and other important events. But beyond that, it's also a great way to add some flare or personality to your look. With so many styles and colors available on the market today, it can be difficult to choose just one watch for your next trip. Luckily, we've done all the legwork for you! Here are some factors you should consider when choosing the best travel watch:

A Watch is an Essential Travel Accessory

  • It helps you keep your schedule.
  • It can help you stay connected and avoid missing important messages and calls from family, friends, or work colleagues while traveling in unfamiliar places.
  • A watch can also be used as a safety device if you're walking alone at night or in a place where there are no streetlights or other sources of light nearby (think rural areas).

Choose the Right Band Material

You'll want to consider the material of your band. Some materials are more durable than others, but also weigh more and can be uncomfortable to wear.

Stainless steel watch is a great choice for durability because it doesn't rust or tarnish, but it's heavy and doesn't breathe as well as other options. Leather bands are comfortable and flexible, but they can get dirty easily--especially if you're traveling in an area with lots of sand or dust. Silicone bands are lightweight, durable (they don't break like rubber) and waterproof (which means they won't leak). However, they aren't nearly as comfortable as other options since they tend not to mold well around your wrist over time due to their inflexibility.

Wear the Right Type of Wristwatch

Do you need a digital watch or an analog watch? If you want to keep track of time in seconds, minutes and hours, then go with an analog watch. If you want to see how many minutes are left in your workout or how long it's been since your last meal (or other period), then go with a digital one.

Analog watches have hands that move around on their faces to indicate the hour and minute as well as second hand movement around the face at 12 o'clock position that shows seconds passing by every second until they reach 60 seconds when they start over again at 00:00 and continue counting down until it gets back up there again after 59:59 has passed by each time--and so on until infinity! That's when we'll finally know what happens next...but until then let's just focus on making sure we're wearing our watches properly so nothing goes wrong with them while traveling across town or across continents!

If You're Going to a Hot Destination, Consider a Sporty Watch

If you're going to a hot destination, consider a sporty watch. The rubber strap on these models is more comfortable in hot weather and won't make your wrist sweat as much as metal bands do.

If you need to wear your watch every day for work or play, look for one with glare-resistant coating so that it doesn't reflect light into your eyes when you're out in the sun.

Make sure that whatever model you choose has at least 50 meters (about 165 feet) of water resistance--not just because swimming with your watch on isn't recommended (though it may be), but also because many people forget to take off their jewelry when they shower or bathe! An Indigo backlight will help make reading time easier in low light situations like those found inside airplanes or restaurants where artificial lighting tends not to be bright enough for easy reading without straining eyesight

Don't be Afraid to Accessorize

Accessories can be a great way to add some personality to your wardrobe. But don't overdo it! You don't want to look like you're trying too hard, so keep the number of accessories in your outfit limited and small.

Don't let your accessories overwhelm your outfit; if you're going for a simple black-on-black ensemble, then don't go out of your way to add five necklaces or bracelets on top of that. Instead, pick one or two pieces that complement each other well, like this classic watch with its gold case and brown leather band (and an adorable owl face!).    

The Best Travel Watches are Functional, Durable and Versatile

When choosing a watch, look for one that is easy to read and easy to use. A good travel watch should have some degree of water resistance, but not so much that you can't take it swimming. Also look for a strap that's comfortable enough for long periods of wear but sturdy enough to withstand daily abuse from airport security screenings and rollercoaster rides. You'll also want your timepiece to be versatile: if you're traveling by plane or train, make sure it has built-in functionality like altimeters (for mountain climbers) or chronographs (for sports enthusiasts). Finally, don't forget about aesthetics: if all else fails, go with something stylish!


The best travel watches are functional, durable and versatile. They're not just high-end timepieces or expensive jewelry pieces--they're also tools that can help you keep track of time in different countries and environments. And if you plan on doing some serious sightseeing during your trip, it's worth investing in one that will last through all sorts of adventures!
