For many American families, it’s back to school time. Many kids are getting new wardrobes and for some that will include a new watch or two. While most kids are probably relying on cell phones for timekeeping, there are lots of cool watches to choose from.
If your kid is into comic book heroes like Captain America or Batman, I’ve seen good choices in those genres at Target and Kohls.
Younger kids might benefit from a “time teacher” watch that has clearly marked hour and minute hands. This $10 Batman watch from Amazon is a great example.
If Star Wars is your kid’s thing, I’ve recently seen these inexpensive Star Wars Storm Trooper digital watches at Walmart.
Finally, if your kid is into survival shows like Bear Grylls’ Man vs. Wild or Les Stroud’s Survivor Man, Casio makes several rugged watches that are adventure ready. Of course, one of the most affordable and practical is the venerable Casio Forester. It has a velcro band, backlighting, and a very affordable price tag. Casio Forester watches make great dog walking watches!

I also like my Casio Tough Solar Ana-digital watch. The strap has a practically unlimited number of perforations which will allow the watch to fit any sized wrist. It’s my current “go to” bang around watch!

If your kid is going back to school, a watch is one way to tell time without pulling out the super distracting cell phone.
