Watches

Wristwatches can be practical and stylish. With Walmart's huge selection of affordable watches for women, men and kids, it's easy to find a timepiece that complements your personal style.

Most watches available today are battery-powered quartz watches, which run on watch batteries that usually only need to be replaced every one to two years. Quartz watches come in two main types: analog watches, which have numbers, tick marks or Roman numerals that indicate time intervals, and digital watches, which give the time in a digital display. There are also analog-digital watches, which combine a digital display with features of an analog watch. Both analog and digital watches may include a variety of special features, including alarms, calendars, repeaters, chronographs and world time or dual time options that allow you to keep track of the time in multiple time zones. Some watches are water resistant, which protects them from damage due to occasional exposure to water. Waterproof watches go beyond water resistance and can be worn while bathing, swimming and even scuba diving.

Beyond these features, choosing a watch is a matter of aesthetic taste. You'll find dress watches with precious metal bands, fashion watches with stylish leather bands and sports watches with sturdy plastic bands, as well as cute kids' watches featuring your children's favorite characters.
