Best Watches for Teenage Boys

Updated on December 8, 2014

Are you looking to buy a watch for a teenage boy but have no idea where to begin? I have researched this subject and come up with what I believe to be the seven very best watches for teenage boys. These watches are tough. They can stand up to sports, water, and everyday life.

I have highlighted a variety of durable analog and digital watches at every price point for different types of boys—from those who will only wear their watches to school and back, all the way up to boys who want to wear their watches while diving.

Save a ton of valuable time and precious money! Consult my list to help narrow down your choices and make shopping for a great gift easier.

My Personal Favorite: The Casio G-Shock Atomic Solar

This is my personal favorite. The G-Shock is a great watch for home, school, or field trips. It looks great and is comfortable to wear.

The G-Shock has a smooth texture and is lightweight. There is a long-lasting mineral window cover to protect the screen.
