The Five Best Waterproof Watches for Under $100

When you’re shopping for a watch, you normally look for specific things. There’s style, materials used, brands, and of course features. You should never buy a watch without first knowing what the watch can or can’t do. Waterproof capabilities have quickly become a feature that many watch buyers and aficionados require these days. It doesn’t even matter if you’re taking the watch to any depths at all. Just the fact that a watch can get wet without incurring any damage is a feature that many can’t do without. If you’re in the market for waterproof watches, here are the five best that you can get for under $100.

Casio Men’s Compass Watch

There’s something about Casio watches that’s allowed the brand to stay relevant even with so many high-end fashion watch brands coming out left and right. Casio watches are rugged, stylish, and completely useful without having to break the bank. The Casio Compass sells for roughly $80 and features some of the best qualities most people need in a watch. More importantly, this watch is water resistant for up to 100 meters. This means that you can leisurely snorkel in shallow waters without damaging your watch. We wouldn’t recommend taking the watch any deeper because it probably won’t be able to handle any more pressure even though it claims a 100-meter depth assurance.

Timex Ironman GPS Watch

Timex is another brand that’s been time-tested. This particular watch is actually a GPS watch that you can use for athletic purposes. You can measure distance, pace, and time while you’re timing your run. You can definitely use this Timex Ironman to time your laps in the pool as well. The watch is water resistant up to 50m. It’s definitely safe to swim with this watch, but we wouldn’t take it any further than a quick lap or a leisurely swim. Try to minimize exposure to water unless absolutely necessary as well. The less exposure to water it gets, the longer this watch will last in your collection. You’ll find that the Timex Ironman is more useful than any average watch could be; you’d want to take care of this one.

The Bradford Exchange Navigator Men’s Water Resistant Stainless Steel Watch

There are very few watches under $100 that has a dressier style. Most options out there are rather designed for sports purposes, so they have a more athletic appeal. This watch from The Bradford Exchange offers a waterproof watch that’s dressy and absolutely sophisticated. The stainless steel watch features a black tachymeter bezel that borders a stunning blue dial. The dial itself is quite simple. It uses Arabic numeral markers at the three, six, nine, and twelve o’clock positions; the rest are simple linear markers. The watch is surprisingly water resistant up to 200 meters. You can certainly take this watch in deeper waters, but we wouldn’t say that it’s quite dive territory. It’s best not to risk it with such a great looking watch, but go ahead and get wet with it.

Invicta Men’s 48mm Pro Diver Quartz Chronograph Polyurethane Strap Watch

This particular Invicta watch gives us an option that’s both dressy and sporty at the same time. The polyurethane strap is as durable as ever, but the gold detailing on it adds just enough luxury. The blue dial and bezel feature matching gold touches as well, tying the whole look together. This watch has plenty of features to boast, but a watch that looks this good shouldn’t even be allowed to get wet. Yet it can get wet with water resistance of up to 200 meters.

Wrist Armor US Navy C40 Watch

If the US Navy endorses it, then it should be good, right? As a matter of fact, this is a choice watch for diving. It has all the features that would help anyone in a dive including a strong backlight, luminous hands, stark markers, and a durable black rubber strap. This watch is water resistant up to 330 feet, which means that it’s perfectly safe for diving. It doesn’t matter that it isn’t ISO certified. This watch is designed to handle the pressure of deeper waters. If you’re the type that always finds his way in the water somehow, this is the watch that won’t let you down.
