    I'm lookin for an inexpensive watch that is simple reliable durable and cost less than 40 dollars. Ive been looking at gi field watches and they look nice but would like to have a back light in it or something like that. Doesn't really matter weather it is digital or analog as long as the watch band can be replaced and the watch case is mostly metal. Any suggestions??

    Thanks

    For CHEAP but durable watches, Timex rocks.

    For digital, I don't remember the company that makes them, maybe Timex... but the "ironman" watches are great for the price.

    Here's my every day watch, super durable and has all the features I need. They come in rubber straps too but I'm a bracelet guy. I bought it from Target for around $35, have also seen it at Kohls on sale for close to that price. You won't be dissapointed.

    **EDIT** I remember reading the reviews and several people complained about the pins in the band breaking. Timex must have addressed this as I've been wearing this for about six months and have had zero issues.
