Looking for a decent analog watch for my daughters ages 10 & 7 years old. Based on the example from this link Timex Originals Sport | TIMEX ................... do you think this is both price and age appropriate? If it were up to my wife ... well let's just say she is all for getting them a $10 watch at Walmart. I just need to get them something that is durable and will not flake out in a year, thus having me searching for another.

A watch for 10 & 7 year old kids? Ask for help on public discussion board? Good luck with the tough decisions in life.

Timex makes some really cute watches for children that have stretch bands. They last forever, and I know because that is my go-to watch when I travel to sxm. I never wear my good watches to the islands, and these watches are water resistant.

I love that watch. Good for you for allowing your daughters to learn how to actually tell time.

I actually like that Timex and they are pretty durable. Thanks for posting the link to it, as I may have to buy a few for my nieces who have been through any number of watches, generally the kind that they see and must buy at Target and Nordstrom, but don't last to the rigors of being a child/pre-teen. The Nordstrom watches are more fashionable, but the timepiece aspect of them is lost.

Sprout watches I noticed at Nordstrom, but I didn't see the child version there. On the Sprout website, however, they do have kids watches, and I was considering this watch for a niece who wants a metal bracelet watch. There seem to be good reviews of Sprout watches on Amazon, so I might take a risk with it.

SproutWatches.com

This is a traditional pink watch, but I don't know if it as durable as Timex should be: SproutWatches.com

The other watch I was looking at is a ladies Skagen that the salesperson at Nordstrom told me would work for my elder niece, and that the band could likely be adjusted to fit her wrist. Skagen Color Border Leather Strap Watch | Nordstrom

I'd just have your kids choose what they want. Don't let your wallet or other people do the talking. Maybe educate them in what makes a good watch and let them choose a style they like. Best of luck.

I like Timex Ironman watches. Have several of them Prefer them to more expensive ones. Although I do have nice ones gold watches (seiko) too. Timex is good and reliable, and not too expensive for kids to beat up.
