    New to Watches; Looking for suggestions

    Hello. I've new to watches, but I realized that I may start to need a watch in my life, and it would be more convenient than pulling out my phone to check for the time every time.
    I've never really worn watches, except for this one time for a few months, but that was it, so I'm not really sure what is good and what isn't. I'm looking for some kind of minimalist design though. I don't like having tons of dials on the watch or having date, time, weather, temperature, etc all on a small screen. I want it to be simple, but usable. I prefer digital watches more, but I guess I'm okay with other kinds. If you've heard of Qlocktwo, I like that kind of watch, and it's not digital, but that is expensive. I guess I want something easy to read if I took a glance, and digital watches are the most easy, like if I woke up confused at 3am, I would know what time it is. Another thing I kind of like is the Mutewatch, as it's simple, and it serves its purpose(tells me the time), but mutewatch is pretty expensive. I'm just referencing to show what kind of style I prefer. Another thing is that I don't want to spend as much on a watch as on my cellphone, so I'm looking for something $200 or below. If anyone has any suggestions that fit my preferences, please post them for me. Thank you!

    I suggest you hold off purchasing a watch for a while, save up your allowance, learn how to read analogue and then continue your search for a watch.

    There's no need for your condescending attitude. I was just looking for an affordable, easily usable watch that I wouldn't mind wearing around all the time because I needed the use of telling time conveniently.

    Anything at your local department store will work.
    Its $200 and not $2000 or $20,000. Buy whatever you think looks nice and is legible to you.

    Look at all the $150-$200 Seikos in the department stores. They aren't digital, but are very simple in design, easy to read and better quality, you will be hard to find at any price. I've worn Seikos for many years and they are indestructible! Good luck!

    Really? This is your contribution? I have a suggestion of my own for you. Rethink your choice of username. It doesn't seem to fit you very well.
