Watches are an important tool for children; having a watch can help a child to learn basic time management skills that will serve them later in life. Let’s talk about the process of helping a child choose a watch that they will use consistently.
Things to Consider When Buying a Kids' Watch
Choose a Style
Overstock.com has hundreds of kids’ watches, so we’ll need to narrow it down. There are many different themes to choose from, such as super heroes, cartoon characters, animals, or sports teams. We can also filter by one of the many fun color categories. Finally, we can also select watches by print or design, such as camouflage or striping.
Pick a Type
Some children will do better with a digital watch that will be easier for them to read, while other children may be ready to learn how to read an analogue clock face. We have both available, as well as LED watch faces that are easy to read in the dark.
Consider Strap Material
You’ll need to decide what type of strap will be best for your child. Silicone is a great option because it is comfortable and durable, whereas fabric straps can be washed. Leather watch straps have a classic feel and appearance, and plastic watches are versatile and easily cleaned. Select a watch that fits your child and that will encourage them to wear their watch consistently.
