30 Best Digital Watches

A Watch can never go out of fashion, period!! Despite new gadgets rolling out year by year, the conventional time-telling machine retains its charm. It comes in several styles, makes and design; it has a special place in everyone’s wardrobe. Some people still love the traditional analog watch, while others prefer the new-age smartwatch and some are still besotted by the digital watch. The number display is the primary distinction between an analog and a digital watch. Digital watches miss out on conventional hands (short and long) used for indicating time. Besides, the simplistic number display is easy to read. The first digital mechanical pocket watch was introduced during the early 1920s. It took another half-century before electronic LED timepieces took over the segment. During that span, digital watches cost a fortune and were affordable only by the affluent.  Prices eventually toppled when mass production started in 1976 by the Texas Instruments. These timepieces featured LED light and a plastic case, which curbed the cost by large. Today, we have innumerable choices and if you still can’t make up your mind, here are some reasons for you to get a digital watch.
