Although most of us don’t actually look at our watch to check the time (since we now rely on our smartphone for this), it’s something that we never forget to wear on a daily basis. After all, a timepiece can be a fashion statement on its own and serves as a reflection of your personality.
As an indispensable accessory, investing in a timepiece that will last you for years to come is of prime importance. It’s crucial to pick one that’s not only functional and stylish, but also one that speaks to your fashion sense and fits your lifestyle needs. Here, we have a selection of timepieces that you should invest in based on your personality.
THE BOSS BABE
Are you an entrepreneur managing your own business and juggling a side hustle while you’re trying to keep up with your social life and me-time? A smartwatch is just what you need. Smartwatches go beyond the regular, prime function of a traditional watch by way of countless high-tech features parallel to that of smartphones. Fossil offers a range of smartwatches that are functional and stylish at the same time. Perfect for the busy woman, the Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch allows you to track your schedules, manage emails, perform contactless payments, and more!

Aside from the fundamentals of heart rate, respiration and sleep monitoring, additional functions such as animated workouts, sports apps and menstrual tracking are incorporated into the wristwatch for a wholesome experience. Such advanced functionality sets itself apart from other fitness watches and it’s not lacking in style either.

To complement your innate brilliance, you’d want a timepiece that reflects your artistic soul and creative mind. While such watches are limited, Olivia Burton is one brand, which offers creations featuring uniquely picture-perfect dials, ranging from floral to animal motifs. Its Painterly Prints Big Dial Dusty Pink & Rose Gold watch, which showcases whimsical hummingbird and flowers is to die for. What’s more, it makes for a great topic of conversation. Alternatively, opt for the Rainbow Glitter Midi Dial Silver Mesh Watch for a more delicate take.
