What's a good women's analog watch for under $200?

Can you recommend a good women’s analog watch for under $200? Claudia Garren Asheville, North Carolina

A:

Most sports watches today are so sophisticated that they’ll monitor your heart rate, give you GPS coordinates, and sound an alarm when you’re running too slow. But if you prefer just to tell time by using two hands, Victorinox Swiss Army offers a number of analog styles that are made with precision Swiss analog quartz movement. Buyer beware: Now you’ll have no excuse to be late again. Swiss Army’s Original ($175; swissarmy.com) has a scratch-resistant crystal, a leather/nylon band, and is water-resistant up to 330 feet.

Timex’s Women’s Metal Field ($50; timex.com) is a great, less-expensive alternative. The durable analog has an attractive leather band, is water-resistant up to 330 feet, and has a price point that will make you happy.
