    I buy the cheapest casio from walmart with glo in the dark numbers I can find. Usually under $20. Between being a RN, diving, running, hiking I am very hard on watches so I don't spend a lot of money on them. They seem last for a least a year on the store battery.

    My $20 waterproof walmart watch lasted me a three month hike no problem. Still works, actually.

    After my new fitbit crapped out I bought a Garmin Fenix 2 it's much cheaper now that there is a new model out now. It has sunrise/sunset, temp, compass, barometer, GPS and waypoints, I could go on! It's easy to use and hates via usb. $150 Garmin factory refurb on eBay.

    Oh, I could never buy a watch that hates - It's bad enough when the alarm on my Timex decides it needs to scream at me to get up in the morning!

    I believe your autocorrect must have overrode the word "charges."

    The same Fossil watch I wear every day. I am really restricted on what I can wear due to nickel sensitivity...no cheap Walmart watches for me. Plus my wrists are so small it's hard to find a cheap watch that fits!

    I LOVE my smartwatch at home, but on the trail I ditch my watch altogether. I have my phone in my pocket if I need to know the time, but mostly I love the experience of not being controlled by a clock.

    I bought mine at Walmart. It is George Brand water resistant watch. It cost about $19.99. You can also find them on Amazon. Just type water resistant in the amazon search bar.

    I know this is the Woman's Forum but i didn't realize it until after i saw the title. Feel free to ignore the Odd Man. But i too don't like men's watches (too big, more features than i want, etc...) so i found this Timex Weekender. It is marketed as unisex. It's relatively small with just a plain analog face ( i like the 24 hr numbers for international travel). But best for hiking is the nylon fabric band that goes behind the watch so little metal is in contact with your skin. The band slips off and on for easy cleaning. Plus the Indiglo featue (face lights up when you push the set button) is handy in a dark tent. Curiously i ofyen have complete strangers make unsoliced comments on how much they like my watch.
