Enjoy selecting your new watch from our best automatic watches under $500 picks. See which one appeals to you more before clicking into the links fopr further information.

WHAT TYPES OF POWER OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR AUTOMATIC WATCHES?

All the best automatic watches are like living creatures. Although they don’t breathe, they come “alive” when you move. Therefore most automatic watches which are self-winding need kinetic energy to operate effectively.

This means you will have to wear it everyday in order to keep it fully wound. That’s an added advatage of owning a nice automatic watch, you get to wear it all the time!

It’s all part of the charm and lifestyle options available to spice up your personality!

You could however opt for some additional power options for automatic watches in addition to the popular self-winding kinetics. Here are a couple to consider:

  • With Solar power options automatic watches be charged by natural or artificial light. You would need to avoid covering these types of watches with long sleeves or keeping this type of watch in a box or drawer for storage in order to get the best possible user experience.
  • Some automatic watches will just operate on a simple battery. Best to look for a 1-year battery warranty and a minimum of 2-year battery life options in our best watch reviews in order to locate the right watch with this power option.

WHY ARE AUTOMATIC WATCHES THE INDUSTRY STANDARD?

Nowadays many people just use their smartphones to tell the time. They are not too bothered about the device that tells the time. They are more interested to have everything available from one device.

However as all things not being the same, we live in a world of choices, preferences, and individual personalities. For many watch owners it is not important just to have accurate time but it is rather how the watch makes the timekeeping happen.

As automatic watches are likened to living things, they have some unique advantages over quartz movement watches.

We have listed below some reasons why many people prefer an automatic watch over quartz movement watches.

  • The seconds hand sweeps by. Quartz watches have a ticking motion which assures accurate maintainance of time. That is where we get the Tick. Tick. With automatic watches the seconds hand sweeps effortlessly around, thereby being quieter and much more attractive for the eye.
  • Symbiotic Relationship – It needs you. Unless you are wearing an automatic watch incorporating a battery backup, it must be worn by you on a regular basis for it to continue working. Yes the time in-between wearing on the wrist can vary and top models can go up to 5 days without being worn and still have power. That’s not the same for cheap automatic watches which more often than not may require daily wear.
  • Watch design is a reflection of your personality. Automatic watches are made in myriads of styles, designs, quality and price points. Finding the perfect watch to fulfill your requirements can be a chore though as the permutations are mind boggling. Tha’s where a good watch review comes in handy!
