Everything You Need to know About Palada Watch

There comes a time in a person’s life when they have to decide on who they are and who they want to become. Every choice is valid. Every choice has a group of people who have made the same choice. I have chosen to dedicate much of my adult life to being active and finding some great affordable watches. 


There are many people out there who share similar interests as me of being active while also feeling confident about my outfit. As we discussed in an earlier article, an outfit without a watch is incomplete or at the very least it is not an optimized outfit. However, just because we think you should wear a watch does not mean that you should go out and drop $100 or even $1,000 on a watch if you don’t know you’re a watch fan. 


There are many entry level watches that are designed specifically for the price conscious consumer in mind. I have a bunch myself for any occasion where I decide to go out for a hike or a run. One of my favorites is the casio a158w. My other top choice is the Palada watch. They are both very different watches but in this article we are going to focus on the Palada watch. For what reason?


The Palada watch is a true sports watch that looks good, feels good, and is the definition of an affordable sports watch. I use the Casio a158w for when I am choosing the athleisure route and the activity is not too crazy. The Palada watch; however, is a great sports watch that looks like a sports watch. The Palada T7005G is the watch that we will be discussing today. 



Palada T7005G


As you can see from the image above, the Palada watch is a sleek all black digital watch with a large digital display. It is marketed to men by Palada, but as I have seen, many women are opting into a large face male watch, especially when it comes to a sports watch. The 50 mm case is the only thing that would not make this suitable for people with small wrists as it could be uncomfortable. However, the rubber material used on the band and the plastic used for the case really make this watch very comfortable to exercise in. The Palada watch is water resistant to 50 meters which means you can take it swimming. It also has a stopwatch to be able to time your splits or sets in the gym. It really is a great watch. It has a 4.3 out of 5 rating on amazon from over 10,000 reviews. The best part is that the watch is under $20. The price in itself is one of the main reasons that I recommend this watch for those of you who are either starting on the wearing a watch path or those who are looking to be more active. It is a small investment in garnering confidence and completing your outfit. 


Pros vs. Cons of the Palada Watch


Pros


  • The affordability of the palada watch make it a no brainer
  • It has additional features such as: stopwatch, calendar, alarm, water resistant, and durable materials
  • The look is really great and can blend with any casual outfit

Cons


  • The water resistance being 50 Meters means that you can take it swimming but not for too long and not very deep. Palada even warns you not to press any buttons while under water 
  • We could not find any mention of a warranty anywhere. However, for the price, it makes sense that would not get a warranty

If you are interested in another great sports watch that adds more flair and color the Fila 38-312-003 sold by us at OG Watches is another one to check out. This watch has a price range of about $70 so you should expect a different quality but both watches are really great. I have both and interchange them consistently.
