Cheap rechargeable watch

11
Found 25th May
I am looking for a cheap rechargeable watch for my brother and I note that the fitness bands also show the time and are pretty cheap.

Anyone can recommend one that has a decent battery life but doesn't cost a lot? I am looking under £30 if possible. He just needs something to tell the time that is rechargeable.

Why rechargeable?

My wife loses watches regularly, I just buy her the cheapy casio quartz watches for £7 a go.

My teenage daughter doesn't lose watches, I bought her a seiko automatic for £50. Seiko are very good but there are plenty of cheap automatics.

i like the idea of not having to deal with battery replacement in this day of technology. it would also be good to get something that does more than tell the time like the find my fitness band facility would be good.

I'd rather replace a battery every year or so than have to remember to charge it every week or whatever. I mainly wear an automatic.

My other daughter likes her pebble.
I ware a casio solar that charges itself. The watch also picks up the signal to set time. I never take it off. Swimming. Bath. Bed ect. If I take it off I'll loose it. Lol. Bought it cheap off ebay

The batteries on a simple digital watch will last several years, not far off length of time that the battery in a smart watch will last after recharging every day or two.
Have you thought of a kinetic one? I had one once and it was great

Look for a fitness tracker instead, most tell the time. For example, the Mi Band 2 tells the time when you tap it.

Bought a few Mi Band 2's for others, all of them get 1 month battery life. It has a function where you can locate the band if connected via Bluetooth (it vibrates, no GPS though). Top quality IMO

Is there a similar band with GPS for locating it?

Nothing in that price range. Mi Band 2 is around £15 on sale from China (around £24 sold by Amazon or FBA for £21). For GPS you'd be looking to spend around £50 for something like the Huawei Band 2 Pro.

Correct me if I have missed anything out guys!
