Fun and Trendy Slap Watches

Updated on April 4, 2013

Back to the 80's with Slap Band Watches

Do you remember slap bracelets? They were popular in the 1980's, and now, they're back...but as watches. The fashionable, yet fun, watches are funky enough that a tween will love them, as was my experience with my students a couple of decades ago.

Don't write slap watch styles off as a tween fad, though. Many are quite pretty, tasteful in color and design. While you will certainly find some of those 80's neon colors, you will also find some of the styles reminescent of the pastels of the Swatch era.

There are stylish slap watches, and there are funky ones. These are great for stocking stuffers, or for an inexpensive teen or tween gift. Include a slap watch in a gift basket, or give one to your secret pal. This is a fun gift for your office Christmas exchange, as well.

TKO Orlogi Slap Watches come in a rainbow of colors, with interchangeable bands. Striking or subtle, the contrasts are fun, pretty, and cool! Your tween or teen can find a combination that suits her interests, but so can you! And when she (or you) get tired of the current color combination, you (or she) can switch it up!

The early 80's were great for bright, neon colors.

These watches would have fit perfectly!

Remember the Neon Colors of the 80's?

I'm an 80s girl, having enjoyed my high school and college years right in the heart of the neon burst in fashion! Love the bright colors depicted here, and my tween seems to migrate toward combinations such as these. These are great for the tween age group!

Combinations are great subject matter, when it comes to the idea of mixing and matching.

Tweens and teens have a tendency to select unusual fashion items, but this piece is pretty enough to make the cut in a career woman's wardrobe as well.


Do you prefer a more delicate style, not so bulky? Perhaps those bold 80's colors, and stark contrasts aren't quite your thing!
