Digital watches tend to be popular with police officers due to their functionality.

Most digital watches are easy to read, have a calendar, stopwatch and basically everything you would need from a watch.

The Armitron Sport has a simple, sporty black case with blue details, and a large face with a date and day window, with the time being displayed in the middle.

The watch has both 12-hour and military time and is braced to the wrist by a black resin strap with a buckle.

This is perfect for law enforcement as there would be a smaller chance of the watch falling off during the day.

What To Look For When Buying Police Watches

As an officer, you don’t want to buy a watch that’s too flashy, as this may not sit well with superiors and colleagues.

Another reason is with all the urgency involved with being a police officer.

There’s a chance that your watch may fall off when on the job, and you don’t want to be scrambling on the ground looking for an expensive watch while a crime is in progress.


Chances are, if you’re working in the police force, you may have a lot of nights where you’re working.

Having a proper backlight (or lume) on your watch will make it much easier to read time in the dark, which may be really important when working as a police officer.


Police work is a very unique job, there’s isn’t a lot of work out there that can be compared to police work.

Police officers on the daily have to do an incredible amount of physical work while also doing “normal” office things like filing paperwork and attending meetings.

Because of this, there’s a lot that can damage your watch, whether it will be hitting it on something while fighting crime, or simply banging it against the office refrigerator.

Your watch needs to be able to survive all of this, so make sure that the timepiece you’re looking at is made of quality materials that won’t budge.

Personal Preference

For a lot of officers, their watch is the only thing they’re wearing that isn’t part of a uniform, so personal preference plays a large role in choosing a watch.

When buying anything, at the end of the day the choice is no one else’s but yours.

There’s no such thing as a “wrong” choice for a police watch.

Some of these timepieces may be less practical than others.

But if you’re comfortable and feel good about the choice you made, then there’s no problem at all, officer.
