Watches Features Comparison
As you start shopping for a budget watch, you'll quickly discover there's a watch for every taste, personal style, and purpose. Digital watches are the best choice for those who like extra features such as alarms, chronographs, lap timers, and day and date displays. Analog watches are more basic (no extra features) and dressier. Budget watches, whether analog or digital, generally feature a mineral crystal, which are more scratch resistant than acrylic, another low-cost material used for watch crystals, but more susceptible to shattering. Almost all budget watches use a battery-powered quartz movement, which should keep accurate time as long as the battery keeps on going. Watch bands are made of all kinds of materials, including plastic, leather, and metal; leather is most formal and plastic is best for athletic pursuits.
