Women's gear, up first
Can you recommend a good womens analog watch for under $200? Claudia Garren Asheville, North Carolina
Most sports watches today are so sophisticated that theyll monitor your heart rate, give you GPS coordinates, and sound an alarm when youre 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 youll have no excuse to be late again. Swiss Armys Original ($175; swissarmy.com) has a scratch-resistant crystal, a leather/nylon band, and is water-resistant up to 330 feet.
Timexs Womens 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.
