Several alterations have cemented the status of the digital watch. Originally, the digital watch was antithetical and a stark contrast to the luxury and craftsmanship of traditional watches. Others have looked at the digital watch with critical eyes. As a result, it had been deemed nerdy, but then it became cool. Only recently have digital watches returned to the hearts of nostalgic collectors that appreciate them.
The digital watch’s status has been through many vicissitudes. Once cutting-edge tech, they went on to be viewed as antithetical to the luxury and craftsmanship of traditional watches. For a while, they were nerdy, then ironically cool. Most recently, though, digital watches have returned to the hearts of nostalgic collectors that appreciate them for all the right reasons. Through it all, though, digital watches have offered the same compelling advantages.
There is no need for a “reason” to wear any watch you like. However, if you want to explore the experience, here are the more compelling reasons why you have to check them out:
Easier To Read
The convenient and readable way digital watches display information is one way to define digital watches. The rest regarding their features? They are practically ancillary. In contrast to the traditional analog watches, which use hands to point numbers along a scale, digital watches have changing numbers you can read directly. Objectively, it’s easier, more convenient, and more precise. Another convenience that it offers is that it is instant.
Just ensure you get a positive display (one where the numbers are dark and the background light) for easier visibility and readability.
Track Your Heart Rate Better
Most of the market that the digital watch targets is the fitness lover. They like tracking things – their speed, the calories they burn, and of course, their heart rate. It’s perfect – especially since some digital watches can monitor your heart rate. From all that the digital watches offer, the heart rate tracker is ideal for runners or those who want to track cardio-heavy workouts. Another great thing about it is that you can also save the data. In addition, you can also compare and check your pulse scores.
Digital watches are certainly more convenient. With digital time and data display, digital watches can be easier to read than analog watches like the Seiko Presage while in motion. With this display, you can look at the time or your heart rate when you’re on the move, while the high-tech features record your progress as you go. Additionally, it is easy to read when you’re moving as the sun goes down.
Although some mechanical watches have digital displays, some also have quartz watches. LCDs and quartz both use little moving parts – these parts are weak links. What makes them so is that they are the watch parts that have much friction and are prone to friction, wear, and shocks. They are also the first parts to break down and show most problems.
As mentioned above, most digital watches use quartz movements. As a result, besides making these watches more robust, this feature also helps make them affordable. You can spend less and get more if you get a digital watch!
For fitness lovers, the digital watch is certainly for you! Go ahead and get one now if you are convinced to try it!
