Our picks at all price points - from Budget to Luxury

Looking for the best women's dive watches to give to someone special - or to treat yourself? Check out our picks here for what we consider some of the best scuba watches around.

These would make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Christmas, etc. Or a nice gift for no occasion at all. What women wouldn't love to receive a nice watch?

Since there is a huge range of price points for these watches, we give you our top picks in several different price categories. Hopefully it will make your selection that much easier.

Best high end dive watches

So how did these diving watches make our list?

Like all our watches in this price range, they all had to be water resistant to 660 feet to qualify (see our primer on scuba watches for an explanation of why 660 feet).

Next they had to have overwhelmingly positive reviews from users. After all, if the vast majority of buyers give the watch a high rating, chances are that it will work for you too.

We spent many hours combing through websites and reviews to pick the ones we believe will be worth your hard earned money. 

There is alot to consider when choosing between watches, especially at the higher price point. So if you need more information on options on a dive watch, please take a look at our free Buyers Guide to Dive Watches.

The links will open in a new window to our partner's website. From there, you can read more of the detailed reviews and features and see if that scuba watch will fit your needs.

(If a link isn't working or a product is no longer available, could you do me a favor and please let me know? I try and stay on top of it but things change all the time and I can't always keep up. Thanks so much for your help.)

Now on to the good stuff. We have divided our picks for best divers watch for women into the following categories based on price: luxury ($2,000+), top end ($200-$1,000), moderate ($100-$2,000), budget ($25-$100) and inexpensive/cheap (under $25).

Best Women's Dive Watches:
Top End - $200-$1,000


Choice #1:

Our first pick in this category is a Luminox model.

Unlike our luxury picks, this scuba watch is a much more casual watch and is perfect for the active women. This is called the Navy Seal model - just a bit of inspiration here!
 

Another high end winner - Tag Heuer dive watch

This model is water resistant to 660 feet (just meeting our minimum requirement for scuba diving) and has a Swiss quartz movement.

The bezel is unidirectional and the band is made of silicone.

Many reviews stated that this watch gets lots of compliments. The pink is subdued giving you style without overdoing it.

A great choice for an active women and a casual lifestyle.

  • Very accurate time keeping

Choice #2:

Our next pick in this category is another Luminox model. The color here is exact opposite of our first choice with this one being in white. So everyone should find one to their liking!

This is another more casual style watch and is great for the active woman.

Luminox woment's dive watch

This has a quartz movement and the case is reinforced white carbon while the bracelet is white plastic.

This just makes our cutoff with a water resistance of 660 feet (200 meters) so there should be no worries there.

One thing I noticed as I was reading through all the reviews was that alot of nurses gave this watch high marks saying it was easy to read in dark as well as light rooms. Hadn't noticed that on any other watches I reviewed so just thought I would mention it. Do you have a nurse in your life? Or are you a nurse? This might just fit the bill.

(Note: This watch comes with a 2 year Amazon warranty, not a manufacturer's warranty.)

Pros:

  • Durable, well-made product
  • Very easy to read in dark situations
  • Lightweight and comfortable

Cons:

  •   Not enough contrast on watch face (1 reviewer)

Choice #3:

Our next choice for best women's dive watches in this category is a Momentum model. While this brand may not be as well known as our other picks, the brand compares favorably at this price point and has carved out a niche for themselves in the waterproof market.

The company is based in Canada and has been around since 1980. Given their high ratings, I would bet they will be around for a long time to come.

momentum dive watch women's

This particular model features a stainless steel case and band. It has a quartz movement and a scratch resistant sapphire window. The window also contains a magnifier so the date is easier to read.

True to its niche, this watch is water resistant to 1,640 feet (500 meters) so you can dive to your heart's content.

It has a light face with a dark bezel giving it a slightly more casual but still classic look. I think it would look good both in and out of the water.

This watch also comes with a manufacturer's warranty.

Pros:

  • Solid and well made
  • Very easy to read in all lighting conditions
  • Extra security in water resistance to 1,640 feet

Cons:

  • Can feel heavy for some wearers (2 reviews)
  • Have to be at right angle to read through date magnifier

Best Women's Dive Watches:
Moderate - $100-$200


Now on to our next category for best women's dive watches - those in the  moderately priced category. There were quite a few to choose from but I have narrowed the choices down to a couple of models.

Many of the watches in this price category had a water resistance rating to 330 feet. However, at this price point I still kept our cut off at 660 feet so many models didn't make the cut due to this factor. But at over $100, I still think you should have a rating of 660 feet so you can scuba dive with no worries.

Choice #1:

Our first pick in this price range is another Momentum model. They are doing well at these lower price points.

momentum women's dive watch

Don't be scared away by this picture. This model comes in several different colors- most of which are not for the faint of heart. LOL. This watch is also available in orange, purple, white and yellow (a very similar version is also available in blue). So pick a color and have some fun here!

One reviewer said that her husband now finds it easier to spot her underwater, and added advantage of these bright colors. Reviewers also said they get many compliments on the watch; it is noticeable so understandable.

This watch has a stainless steel case and a rubber band. It features a quartz movement and has a luminous face making it easy to read in dim light conditions.

This watch is rated as water resistant to 660 feet (200 meters), so no problems with scuba diving.

It is a fun looking watch and would work well with any casual setting or sporting activity.

This watch comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

Pros:

  • Easy to read with large numbers (good for aging eyes)
  • Glow in dark face so easy to read in dim light
  • Solid construction
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Available in different colors

Cons:

  • Band smells like vanilla (1 reviewer)

Choice #2:

The second choice for best women's dive watches in this price category goes to an Invicta model from their Pro Diver collection. And it comes in at the very low end of the price range here so it is a great value. Since we spend so much to scuba dive to begin with, value is always welcome!

Invicta women's dive watch

This is a sharp looking watch. In fact several reviewers said people thought they were wearing a Rolex.

With it's two tone look, it goes great with most anything. Like both silver and gold jewelry? No problem. This looks perfect with both.

The band is made from 18K gold plating and stainless steel. The bezel is also 18K gold plated stainless steel.

The watch face is black with contrasting gold tone hour dots making it easy to read. This model is water resistant to 660 feet making it great for scuba diving.

Pros:

  • Elegant yet sporty looking
  • Keeps excellent time

Best Women's Dive Watches:
Budget - $25-$100


Choice #1:

This choice for best women's dive watch in the budget category is an Invicta model. In my opinion, this watch looks more expensive than it is.

Invicta budget women's dive watch

The case and band are made from 23K yellow gold plated stainless steel. It has a contrasting blue dial face and bezel which gives it a very distinctive look.

The bezel is unidirectional and has a scalloped edge for an easier grip.

Invicta budget women's dive watch

The case and band of this model are made from 18K yellow gold plated steel. The dial here is a champagne color with a bit of contrast from the blue bezel.

It has gold toned dots for the numbers as well as dashes for minutes on both the dial face and bezel.

This model also has a scalloped edge on the bezel for and easier grip.
Invicta comes through again with a water resistance of  660 feet on this budget model. So scuba and be reassured that it will hold up to depth.

Best Women's Dive Watches:
Inexpensive (Cheap) - Under $25


Note: For this category of best women's dive watches, I had to lower the minimum water resistance depth to 330 feet. As you recall for watches to make the categories listed above, watches had to have a minimum water resistance to 660 feet.

As with all things, that water resistance comes with a price. So at this price point you will find the watches come with a water resistance of 330 feet. As I discussed above, you can read our primer on scuba diving watches for a discussion of the 660 feet issue.

In addition, dive watches not rated to 660 feet should definitely be considered a secondary timing device. However, just because they are not rated to 660 feet does not mean they will flood underwater. Although it of course can happen, my husband and I have both been diving with cheap watches rated for much less than 660 feet for years. They both are still going strong with no problems. But of course we have a computer as our main timing device should the watches stop working while diving.

So that being said, let's get on with our picks for best inexpensive (cheap) dive watches for women.

Choice #1:

Our first pick in this category is a Casio model. Casio in fact, earned all the spots at this price point. They are a well known company and get great reviews for the value of their watches.

Casio women's dive watch

This first pick is an all white model with gold tone accents on the bezel and on the watch face.

Unlike the other watches, this has a bidirectional bezel.All the other picks had a unidirectional bezel so the bezel can't get turned the wrong way by accident. I didn't read any reviews that had problems with the bidirectional bezel so all seems good.

The case and band are both made out of resin while the bezel is plastic.

As noted above, this watch is water resistant to 330 feet (please read our explanation above about scuba diving and water resistance if you haven't already)

This watch comes with a two year Amazon warranty.

Pros:

  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • Looks more expensive than the price
  • Easy to read
  • Keeps accurate time
  • Bezel rotates easily
  • Durable, can take knocks

Cons:

  • Smaller face (several reviewers)
  • White can get dirty (several reviewers) but most were able to clean watch
  • Date can be hard to read
  • Illumination not good
Find all the details on Casio women's dive watch here.

Choice #2:

Our next pick as we said is another Casio model. This watch stands out for its colorful band and watch face.

Casio pink women's dive watch

This is a fun and flirty watch and many reviewers have fallen in love with this model.

The case material is listed as stainless (I assume the back face) while the band and bezel are made of resin.

A special feature of this watch is the military time on the watch face as well as the standard time. So if you ever have trouble figuring out military time, here is a learning aid for you!

This watch also has a bidirectional bezel, the same as our previous pick in this category.

As with the other inexpensive picks, this watch is water resistant to 330 feet (100 meters).

This watch comes with a two year Amazon warranty.

Pros:

  • Cute and playful
  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • Displays military and standard time
  • Easy to read
  • Easy to clean
  • Sturdy and durable
  • Easy to set/adjust

Cons:

  • Smaller face (several reviewers); suitable for child according to several reviewers
  • Illumination does not last
  • Military numbers/date can be hard to read (several reviewers)
  • Band can get warm (1 reviewer)
