Top Rated and Reviewed Scuba
Diving Watches For Her

Our picks at all price points - from Budget to Luxury
Updated and Expanded for 2019

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.

We updated these picks in August 2019. Some models made the cut from our last list but most categories see all new entrants and/or an additional pick for each price point. 

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 ($1,000+), top end ($200-$1,000), moderate ($100-$2,000), budget ($25-$100) and inexpensive/cheap (under $25).

Best Women's Dive Watches:
Luxury - $1,000+


Whether you are looking for yourself or for that special someone in your life, lucky you for looking in this category! There is nothing not to love about these watches - they will look classic and stylish on her both on and off the boat.

Our first picks have stood the test of time and still get our vote for best women's dive watches in this category for 2019. Of course, at this price point, you would expect them to stand the test of time, LOL.

Choice #1:

Our first choice in the luxury watch category for her is a Tag Heuer model. And who wouldn't want a Tag? They are known for their excellent quality and stylish look.

This model is has a classic look that will never go out of style and will earn a place on her wrist for years to come.

Tag Heuer women's dive watch

This watch has an analog display with a Swiss quartz movement. It is water resistant to 990 feet (300 meters).

The band and the bracelet are made from stainless steel and the window is made from antireflective sapphire crystal.

The display background is made from beautiful mother-of-pearl and also has jewels at most of the numbers. The Tag Heuer logo is displayed under the number 12.

This is an elegant looking watch that any women would love to own. It doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles but it does what it needs to do in a simple, classic fashion.

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

Pros:

  • Excellent craftsmanship, durable
  • Comfortable and lightweight
  • Easy to read at depth and in low light conditions
  • Accurate time

Cons:

  • Face is a little smaller than some expected
  • Costly repair if out of warranty (as with most high end watches)

Choice #2:

For our next pick for best women's dive watches in the luxury category is another Tag Heuer model.

It has the same great craftsmanship as our first pick but with a more sporty look from the black dial face.

This model keeps excellent time with its Swiss quartz movement.

Tag Heuer women's dive watch black face

The case and bracelet are made from stainless steel as you would expect from a watch at this price point.

This watch also has a diving extension so it makes it easier to fit over a wetsuit.

It has a scratch resistant window made from sapphire crystal along with a unidirectional bezel.

This watch is water resistant to 990 feet (300 meters) so it is great for diving.

All in all, this is a great model for an active women.

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

 Pros:

  • Excellent craftsmanship and quality
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to read with contrasting hour marks
  • Accurate time

Cons:

  • Could feel heavy (1 review)
  • When new battery is needed, has to be serviced to maintain water resistance

Choice #3:

This next pick for our best women's dive watches is an Omega model.

Even if you don't scuba dive, this is a cool looking watch. It has the wave front and is considered to be one of the "James Bond" watches - need I say more?

Omega dive watch - a top end pick

This dive watch is made of stainless steel with a silver colored band and a blue watch face. The unidirectional bezel is also in blue with scalloped edges, making it easy to grip wherever you may happen to be.

It has Swiss quartz movement for extremely accurate time. It is also water resistant to 990 feet. Not that you should even come close to testing this one out.

This is just a cool looking watch that will wear well for many years to come.

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

Pros:

  • Very solid and durable
  • Accurate time
  • Stylish watch - James Bond "cool factor"
  • Dial easy to read; luminous hands glow bright
  • Comfortable to wear

Cons:

  • Can feel heavy at times
  • Can be costly to repair if out of warranty

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


For this category we have all new entrants for 2019. Either from losing their spot as best women's dive watch in 2019 or no longer being available. Either way, we have new picks for you. 

Choice #1:

Our first pick in this category is a Victorinox model.

Unlike our luxury picks, this scuba watch is a somewhat more casual looking watch but still looks luxurious and higher end, in my opinion anyway.

This model has a silicone band which is perfect for the active women. 
 

Another high end winner - Victorinox dive watch

This Victorinox model is water resistant to 500 meters, which more than meets our requirement of 660 feet, and has a Japenese quartz movement.

The bezel is unidirectional in an eye catching rose gold color and the band is made of silicone.

Many reviews stated that this watch is sporty yet still elegant looking. I have to say I agree.  The rose gold color of the case gives it a nice sophisticated style. The white watch face also makes it easy to read.

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

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

Pros:

  • Excellent quality
  • Elegant and eye catching
  • Great value
  • Easy to read and use

Cons:

  • Might be too casual for some women's taste

Choice #2:

Our next pick in this category is Reactor model. This watch is a stunner in rose gold and white and looks more expensive than the price (in my opinion). It has chronograph functions which put it in another category.

Reactor women's dive watch

This has a Japanese quartz movement and the case is solid stainless steel with a white ceramic bezel (note this is a fixed bezel and has no markings).

The bracelet makes it stand out and is made of plated solid stainless steel and white ceramic. Gives the watch another dimension.

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

This watch comes with a 2 year Reactor warranty.

Pros:

  • Beautiful design
  • Very good quality
  • Easy to use
  • Contains extra links

Cons:

  • Face too big for a women (1 reviewer)
  • No functioning bezel

Choice #3:

Our next choice for best women's dive watches in the top end category is a Luminox model. This one is a much more sporty model and is perfect for the active lady who has grit :).

Luminox dive watch women's

This particular model features a stainless steel case and band and has a Japanese quartz movement. Like most dive watches, it has a unidirectional bezel.

This watch is water resistant to 200 meters which technically comes out to 656 feet - just below our 660 foot minimum. However, I am giving that a pass and still think you would be safe diving with this watch.

It has a dark face and dark bezel with gray markings on the face. This gives it more of a rugged look than any of our other previous picks.

Pros:

  • Solid and well made
  • Very durable
  • Good value
  • Extra links included

Cons:

  • Luminosity was dull (1 review)

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 coup models. These are all new entrants for 2019.

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 a Momentum model. This watch is part of their popular splash series. Momentum continues to perform well at these lower price points.

momentum women's dive watch

This model comes in 15 different colors including aqua, blue, coral, eggplant, khaki, lavender and grey among others. So pick a color and have some fun here!

A earlier Momentum model was our pick during our last update but that model (no longer available) had bands that matched the color of the bezel. All colors on this model have black bands for a more subdued look and the punch of color limited to the bezel.

This watch has a stainless steel case and a rubber band. It features a Japanese quartz movement and has a luminous face making it easy to read in dim light conditions (note, the face illuminates, not the hands).

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)
  • Keeps excellent time
  • Glow in dark face so easy to read in dim light
  • Solid construction/very durable
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Available in 15 different colors
  • Easy to adjust

Cons:

  • Face is big (2 reviewers)
  • Band has odor (2 reviews)

Choice #2:

The second choice for best women's dive watches in this price category goes to an Wenger model. While it may not be as widely know as some makers, the brand gets very good reviews.

Wenger women's dive watch

This is a nice looking dive watch with blue accent color and matching blue stitches on the band.

The case and unidirectional bezel are made of stainless steel and the band is made of silicone.

As with all models this price point and above, it is water resistant to 660 feet making it great for scuba diving.

This model comes with a 3 year manufacturer's warranty.

Pros:

  • Modern design
  • Keeps excellent time
  • Easy to read dial
  • Quality construction/sturdy
  • Bezel works smoothly

Cons:

  • Low luminosity (1 review)
  • Screwdown crown feels loose (1 review)

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


We have all new entrants in this category for 2019. There are alot of watches in this price point so I still required that the watch be waterproof to 660 feet (as all the others above are). I figure if there is a good selection of dive watches rated to 660 feet there is no reason no to make it a requirement to make the cut here.

Note: Some descriptions of these watches say 660 feet is suitable for scuba diving and some say it is not suitable for scuba diving (even among the same brand!). I personally wouldn't hesitate to wear a watch rated to 660 feet (200 meters) while diving as explained above. Of course, as with anything, it is a personal preference.


Choice #1:

So first up for best women's dive watch in the budget category is a Casio model. 

This  line of Casio's has diehard fans and many say they are on their 2nd or 3rd watch from this line since they love it so much.

This is a good looking watch which is sporty and more casual. One think I noted was how many reviews stated that it was good for nurses and worked well in that environment. Of course, it would work well in most environments though the nurses comments stood out.

Casio budget women's dive watch

The case and band on this watch are made from resin. It has digital displays which are easy to read.

It is a multi-functional watch and features include shock resistance, alarm, stopwatch, and 12/24 hour time formats. It also has a databank where you can store some information such as names and telephone numbers. This model also displays animal icons that float across the upper window when certain buttons are touched. Most people love them but of course that is a personal preference.

This watch comes with a one year limited manufacturer's warranty.

Pros:

  • Good quality and very durable
  • Easy to set up
  • Keeps time very well
  • Easy to use and read
  • Comfortable
  • Stylish
  • Size is good for variety of wrist sizes

Cons:

  • If battery goes while under warranty, have to send it into designated center
  • After a while color started fading/turning (several reviews)
  • Too big (a few reviews)

Choice #2:

Our next pick in the budget category is another Casio model. This model is in the G-shock line and also has many converts which keep on buying in this line.

Casio g-shock budget women's dive watch

Like our first pick in the budget category, the case and band of this model are made from a durable resin. The watch face here is a nice contrasting gold color.

This is also a very multi-functional watch with 2 Multi-function alarms and 1 snooze, 1/100th sec. stopwatch and a countdown timer. This model also shows tide level and moon data which would be good for some shore diving.

Pros:

  • Very durable and rugged
  • Stylish design with contrasting colors
  • Easy to set
  • Tide and moon data
  • Easy to see numbers/read
  • Comfortable

Cons:

  •  Not easy to program (a couple reviewers)
  •  Battery died too quickly (a couple reviewers)

Choice #3:

Our next pick in the budget category is an Invicta model and is part of their Pro Diver line. 

This pick is a less sporty look than our previous 2 picks. This is  more of an elegant/classy style and would look good with just about any outfit.

In my opinion, this watch also looks more expensive than it is. And who wouldn't love that?

Invicta budget women's dive watch

The case and band are made from 18K 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. 

Reviewers say they got lots of compliments on this watch. And even at this price point, this watch is water resistant to 660 feet so you can wear it while diving with no worries.

Pros:

  • Solidly made and durable
  • Excellent value for money
  • Keeps time very well
  • Easy to use and read
  • Comfortable
  • Nice size, not too heavy

Cons:

  • A little heavy/too big (2 reviewers)
  • Stem too loose (1 review)

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 in 2019.

For 2019 we have all new entrants in this category. Our last update we picked 2 Casio models. For 2019, one Casio still makes the cut (at pick #2) but we have 2 new entrants by other manufacturers this year. A little competition is always good, right?

All these choices are at an excellent price point and I think you get great value for the money. And reading through the reviews on these picks, I think most buyers agree. 

Now on to our picks.


Choice #1:

The watch winning our first place spot is an Armitron  model. Armitron actually had alot of contenders in this category but I picked this particular model because it had a significant number of reviews and it edged out the others in ratings.

Armitron women's cheap dive watch

This first pick I am showing a blue model but it does come in 6 different color options. Different colors are at different price points but all are at $25 or less.

The case, band and bezel are all made of resin. The bezel on this model is stationary. There is a button for a light so you can read time in the dark. Also has many features such as alarm, military time, stop watch, etc.

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
  • Nice size
  • Durable/long lasting
  • Easy to read
  • Easy set up
  • Excellent value for money

Cons:

  • Instructions a little hard  (1 review)
  • Stopped working after a few months (a few reviewers) 
  • Band stained (a couple reviewers)

Choice #2:

Our next pick is a Casio model. Casio is a well known company and gets great reviews for the value of their watches.

This particular watch stands out for its colorful pastel color watch face.

Casio inexpensive women's dive watch

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

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

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 unlike any other watch we have picked. 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.

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

This watch also gets great reviews from wearers in the health care field noting the 24 hour time and water resistance while still being stylish.

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 (a few reviewers)

Choice #3:

Our next pick is a Timex model. Good ol' timex - it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. LOL. And that seems to be the case with this Ironman model.

Timex inexpensive women's dive watch

This watch has a different look than our other 2 picks and comes in 15 different colors- however, only 2 colors this pink/black and the turquois/silver come in at under the $25 price point for this category. I am now sure why there is such a price discrepancy on colors. But this is a solid contender and the models under $25 are attractive (in my opinion) so I included it as my third pick.

The case, band and bezel on this watch are all made out of resin.

This watch features an alarm, stopwatch and countdown timer.

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

Pros:

  • Easy to set/use
  • Easy to read
  • Comfortable and lightweight
  • Very durable
  • Good illumination with light
  • Displays military and standard time

Cons:

  • Hard to replace band
  • Back light not great (a few reviewers)
  • Color more "dull" than shown in pictures
  • Band too thin/breaks
