To make it easier to skim read through this list of the top watches for teenage boys, we’ve added an ‘affordable option’ into the titles of the cheaper watches to highlight that they are a more affordable watch. These watches still offer great value for money and are well worth checking out if you’re on a sensible budget.
Best Watches for Teenagers
When it comes to the most watches for teenagers I’d recommend looking at some of the cooler more stylish timepieces in today’s list. Brands like Armani, Fossil, and Daniel Wellington certainly top the list at the moment.
These are often mid range designer watch brands for teenage guys but some of them do offer quite good value for money. Daniel Wellington is currently one of the hottest brands of watches for teens right now and I’ve often been very impressed with what you get for the money from them.
Cool Digital Watches For Teenagers
If you’re looking for cool digital watches for teens then there’s a couple of brands I’d recommend focusing on. Casio’s G-Shock range offers a tough yet affordable option – this could be important to you if they’re not know for being too careful with things. Timex are another brand that have always produced solid affordable timepieces that you can’t go far wrong with.
When it comes to the coolest of the cool watches then a higher end Fossil Hybrid or Apple watch could be king. But with such a high end watch comes a high end price. They’re not cheap, but the Apple timepieces have proven to be popular watches for an 18 year old birthday.
Kids Designer Watches
What brands would I recommend in this selection? I think a lot of this comes down to how well the person receiving the watch can look after it. Emporio Armani and Hugo Boss are obvious contenders as they make some extremely stylish timepieces. However, they do cost a fair amount.

If you can trust your teens to look after the watch then you can really go for any of the watches featured below.
If, however, you know there’s a chance they could get a little damaged then I’d recommend looking at the watches that are marked affordable. A brand like Casio with their G-Shock collection are absolutely worth considering if you’re after a hard wearing teen watch.
One of Casio’s most popular watches is this G-shock model. It features a very interesting display with tons of features. It includes a stopwatch, multi-time zone, countdown timer, and alarm.

There’s no denying that Apple makes some pretty cool watches for teens. I think most teenagers would be pretty ecstatic to receive one as a gift.
Due to the price and technology involved with this watch I’d say it’s better suited to teenagers rather than boys as you wouldn’t want to risk it getting broken.
