The 10 Best Digital Watches
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in February of 2018. While a good analog timepiece offers a certain degree of elegance, some prefer the functionality of a digital watch. Many of our selections boast features that add to their capabilities, such as stopwatch functions, preprogrammed calendars, and powerful backlights. We've ranked them here by their durability, usefulness, and attractiveness. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

The Suunto Traverse Alpha has quite a few features that the average user may never find the need for, but dedicated outdoorsmen are likely to find invaluable. Some of its functions — like the ability to track your progress on a trail — could be literal lifesavers, which definitely worked in its favor here.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Casio Vintage Gold. It's not going to be much help on a hike or a hunt, but it can add a certain charm to your city apparel. Its distinctive appearance isn't for everyone, but like the Casio Calculator, it has a throwback appeal that's coming back in style.
The G-Shock options listed here are some of the most rugged models on the market, making them ideal for sporty users. They can handle rough vibrations, most water-based activities, and the occasional spill. Of course, that also makes them perfect for clumsy wearers — and isn't that all of us?
Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar II Representing the best of both worlds, this model has an analog face with a digital touchscreen along its bottom half. The scratch-resistant ceramic bezel makes it as suitable for outdoor sports as it is for that afternoon meeting. tissotshop.com
Bulova Computron It may look like something a robot from the 1970s would have on its arm, but that's part of this timepiece's throwback appeal. Its stainless steel construction ensures it can take a beating, and the no-frills display makes it easy to get the time at a glance. bulova.com
Tag Heuer Connected Modular The finely-brushed titanium case on this model gives it a sleek, understated appearance — but it's also available with several brightly-colored straps if you'd rather stand out. The protected touchscreen display is capable of recognizing multiple fingers, so feel free to alternate wearing it between wrists. tagheuer.com
