It is a known fact that as we age, our senses tend to degrade as a result. Our sense of sight is usually the one that gets degraded first and that is done to a considerable degree and that is the reason why most elderly people go about their lives while using a specific set of lenses.
That being said, the ability to tell the time is an important thing, especially even more so for the older folks. That is why it is important that you buy a casual watch that is perfect for them. But, what are the best choices for such a demographic?
In today’s article, I will be giving you some of my recommendations for the best watches for the elderly.
Timex Men’s Easy Reader Watch
Timex is definitely one of the most reputable watchmaking companies in the world and they’ve been operating for more than 160 years. That being said, the Timex Men’s Easy Reader Watch is the perfect timepiece for the elderly simply because of its large watch face.
The company made use of Arabic numerals so that it will be so much easier for seniors to tell the time. Aside from that, the watch case is made of steel so that even if it gets bumped to something, it can withstand such forces.
The watch also comes equipped with the company’s infamous Indiglo technology which, after a press of the watch crown, can illuminate the entire watch face; making it easier for the elderly to know what time it is.
Casio G-Shock/Baby-G Watches
Casio is also a reputable watchmaking company based in Japan. Their famous G-shock and Baby-G line of watches are great because they are not only robust but it certainly has plenty of features that people of all ages will surely love.
The G-Shock line is more suited for males while the Baby-G watches are a perfect match for the ladies.
The company is known for its impeccable watches that can withstand the elements, making these timepieces as the perfect accompaniment to any elderly’s wrist.
Pasoy Luminous Watch
Although not as popular as the other two brands I’ve mentioned, Pasoy is a relative newcomer in the watchmaking industry. But, that doesn’t mean that they are incapable of developing something that people will love.
Their luminous watch line is definitely made for seniors. All of the things that can be seen on the watch face comes with the company’s own illumination technology so whether they are in dark places or on well-lit environments, the elderly can certainly tell the time.
Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Dive Watch
The last watch on the list is the only one that is solar-powered. Citizen is a reputable brand in the watchmaking industry that prides itself on creating amazing watches that have high regard for the environment.
The Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster is a dive watch that has a large watch face and since this timepiece is specifically made for divers, it can withstand a heavy beating even when underwater.
But, since older people are discouraged from going into the deep seas, the watch is perfect even for people that do not take off their watches when they take a shower.
