How to buy a talking watch for men and for ladies – the choices are expanding. Buying a talking watch used to be simple. We quickly bought the first one we found back in 1988! Today, however, there are choices to be made before you make a final decision.
Set a budget. Will you choose the finest talking wrist watch available, or a budget watch? We have tried both and settled on a less expensive talking watch for my husband. He is a very active legally blind golfer. Talking watches often land in the pockets of the golf bag, or get lost easily. We just buy 2 or 3 of his favorites and always have an extra on hand. These little watches can last as long as a year – if he does not lose one.
Style and color – Researching how to buy a talking watch will quickly lead you to all the choices available. Talking watches are available in gold, silver, black and I recently found a red and black talking watch. You can have a fancy watch or a sport watch. As technology improves, our choices are much broader.
Buttons and alarms – Do you want a timer included? Do you need a talking calendar in your watch? Analog or digital? Do you need a one button watch for simplicity or the four button watch with more options? Would you prefer a talking watch with braille?
Sound – Do you want a male voice to tell you the time? A female voice? Audio clips are sometimes available so that you can hear exactly what your watch will sound like. Remember you will hear this voice hundreds and hundreds of times during the lifetime of the watch — choose carefully.
How to Buy a Talking Watch for Ladies
Would you prefer a pendant talking watch or a talking wrist watch? Ladies talking watches can be beautiful and stylish as well as convenient. A talking pendant watch is the watch of choice for many legally blind women – pendant watches are lovely to look at, and functional. Talking wrist watches for women are available in gold or silver.
