Mrs Sparkle reviews the ladies double strap Swatch watch:
To be honest this watch isn’t really my kind of thing, not because there’s anything wrong with it, it’s just not my taste, my 11 year old daughter however, loves it. The strap is extra long, it has to be otherwise it wouldn’t be a double strap but just a regular watch. On first glance I assumed it would be awkward to fasten as you have to wrap one half of the strap around your wrist twice before doing it up but actually it’s really flexible which makes it easy. It’s very comfortable to wear but may take a bit of effort and ‘faffing’ to get the extra strap in the best position for you, it has loads of holes to choose from to do it up so it will fit almost any size wrist, a plus point for sure.
When it’s on it looks good, and the double strap makes it a little more interesting than the norm without being flashy. There is one drawback to this watch, but in my opinion it’s only a little one!, it’s only ‘3 bar’ water resistance which I think means you can’t wear it swimming but you’d get away with a quick shower, this doesn’t matter to my daughter as swimming is a form of exercise so she’d rather just keep her watch on!
There’s a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase so if in the unlikely event your watch goes wrong, you’ll be covered.
Choosing a watch is a personal thing, we all have different tastes but you can’t really go wrong with this watch, everything about it says ‘Swatch’ but is more understated than some of the others, it comes in lots of different colours and if you like Swatch or you just want a plain, simple watch with a twist then this is the Swatch for you!
