Walmart Canada has marked down three Casio watches to just $20 each with free shipping. While smart phones may be replacing everything else, I do think there is nothing like a good watch. That way you can check out the time without being bombarded with everything else there is on your life-in-a-electronic-box.
The best watch deal is on the Casio LTP1328-1 Women's Dress Watch that was $69.96 and is now only $20. I tried to price compare this watch but it is not available many places. I did find secondary sellers on Amazon selling it for around $55. It has three hands (hour, minute, second) that move around the slightly oversized face. The watch is also supposed to be water resistant up to 50 m. One reviewer said:
I was surprise this watch was on clearance, great price. It's lightweight but does not look cheap. There is only one photo so you can't see the band behind. It has enough adjustments to fit different wrist sizes. This is not so much a dress watch as I call it a casual sports watch. Did not try the waterproof claim, however I will come back to reduce the stars if it disappoints.
If this is not your cup of tea, then there are two other watches to choose from. The Casio LTP1331-6AV Ladies Watch(purple) and the Casio LTP1331-7AV Ladies Watch (white) are essentially the same watch except for the colour. Originally $49.96, they are now on sale for $20 each with free shipping. Now, Amazon Canada has the same deal (though nearly OOS on the purple). However, they would not qualify for free shipping from Amazon so Walmart's deal is better.
it's smaller than I expected but looks so nice. This is my favorite watch and I love it.
I figured if you are looking for a watch on a budget, that these are some of your best choices. While you can get watches for cheaper, you might end up replacing them in a year instead of five years. In the end, spending a bit more up front is the better option. However, if your budget truly cannot handle a $20 watch - then I highly recommend the clearance $5 watches at Walmart. There are currently four in stock:
- Ladies Round Black with Crystal Detail Was $15 | Now $5
- Girls' Disney Cinderella LCD watch Was $12 | Now $5
- Ladies Silvertone with White Rubber Band and Crystal AccentsWas $15 | Now $5
- Ladies Silvertone with Purple Rubber Band and Crystal AccentsWas $15 | Now $5
