The 5 Cheapest Casio Watches for Women

Not long ago we shared information about the cheapest Casio watches on the market for men, but now it’s the ladies’ turn!

Casio has actually produced many excellent watches for ladies and the list we are going to review today is composed of the absolute cheapest and best available on the market right now, best for the price, that is.

For the sake of variety, we have chosen to present just a single of the best models from each series. Common to all the models shown is that they cost under $20.

Why Choose an Expensive Watch?

For some people, a wristwatch is first and foremost a practical tool more than it is anything else.

Others also see it as a piece of jewelry that serves as part of one’s outfit.

And finally we have the ‘feinschmecker’ group who both want the watch to be a practical tool, a beautiful piece of jewelry and in addition also function as a tribute to the art of watchmaking.

That’s a lot of demands for that last group and those people are usually genuine watch enthusiasts who like to wear a mechanical luxury watch like Rolex or another expensive brand.

But it’s far from everyone who wants to spend a lot of money on a wristwatch and the choice of watch does not necessarily have to do with wealth.

Take, for example, Bill Gates, the multi-billionaire who started Microsoft. He has often been seen wearing Casio watches, both the very cheap ones for $20 and the slightly more expensive ones for up to $100.

The List

So here is today’s list. We start with the cheapest models first and finish with the most expensive. All models are in the price range of $10 to $20.

The first model on our list has two major qualities – it’s cheap and it’s popular! At this very moment you can get this watch for just $12.

Those not satisfied with this watch have complained that the watch is too small, even for people with slim wrists. They have in fact compared it to a child’s watch.

About 70% of the 1-star-ratings given on Amazon for this watch has to do with the size, so make sure you check out the specifications carefully if you consider buying.

Nevertheless, 4,669 buyers gave an average 4 star-rating out of 5 and that’s simply excellent for a watch that costs $12!

If you are concerned whether the previous model is too small for your wrist, perhaps the next model on our list may be a better alternative.

The diameter of this watch is 34 mm and the thickness only 8 mm. So still a slim wristwatch, but with a bigger dial and thus better visibility, not least thanks to the big Arabic numerals.

Another advantage of this model is, that it weighs only 20 g.

The dial window material is made of resin glass, the case is made of plastic and the watch is water resistant to 30 m, meaning it can withstand light rain and a splash now and then, but basically it must be kept away from direct contact with water.

But all this is to be expected from a watch valued at only $12.

The good news is, that this watch is precise as the movement is quartz-driven and the buyers are in general quite satisfied with their purchase as you can see from the Amazon ratings.

The next model has a digital display and is aimed at users who is into sports and fitness as it has both a built-in timer and stopwatch function.

It typically costs a little more than the first two watches on the list, but it’s still in the price range of $10 – $15.

It has mineral crystal which is very resistant to scratches – a significant improvement over glass or plastic.

It also has a built-in alarm function, perpetual calendar and the display can be lit at the touch of a button.

The features of the watch are not as sophisticated as in Casio’s more expensive watches.

The timer, for example, is a simple single button press which extends a bar across the top of the screen from 1 to 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes.

For a few extra dollars you can get the sports model LW-200-4AVEF which is in the price range of $15- $20 and the few extra dollars you pay more for this watch are well spent.

The watch has several good functions for the active athlete and in addition the watch is water resistant to 50 m, which means that the watch can withstand direct contact with water.

In other words, this watch will survive a swim in the pool or if you wear it during a shower.

However, if you want to use the watch regularly in conditions that involve prolonged periods of direct contact with water, you are better off finding a model that is rated at least 100 m.

  • Not the best crystal material, mineral would have been better.

And so we’ve finally reached the bottom of the list with the model Casio LA20WH-1ACF, which is both ultralight and slim.

The watch is by definition a ladies watch, but from a visual point of view it could just as well be unisex due to the black dominant color and the car tire-like patterns on the strap and case.

However, the diameter of the watch is typically women’s size with its only 30 mm. In addition, this model is 9 mm thick and weighs just 18 g.

The watch has a number of useful features including Alarm, LED Light, Auto Calendar, 1/100th Second Stopwatch and more.

Although the imprinted text “Water Resistant” indicates that the Casio LA20WH-1ACF is resistant to water ingress, be aware that this only applies to accidental splashes, light rain and the like.
