Gotta Have It

Obsessed with the time since the clocks went back? Then you'll appreciate our round up the coolest watches for all the family. Christmas inspo incoming!

Olivia Burton

We love these designs because they're so very different to the prevailing trend for pared-down watches. The two women behind this newcomer UK brand previously worked as buyers for ASOS and Selfridges before creating their signature vintage-y flowers and marble faces combo. £72

Fitbit Ace

My children are obsessed with my Fitbit - to the point of putting it on at dawn when I'm still asleep and stomping around the house to help increase my step count. Cheers guys, but I think that's defeating the object somewhat. Anyway, now they can have their very own kids' version, to measure steps, active minutes and sleep.

Cluse

This Dutch brand launched five years ago and have cannily got their watches plastered all over Instagram influencers' feeds. Most are less than £100, they're unisex and the designs are chic and simple. Case in point - this gold mesh strapped one.

Superdry

Catnip for teenagers, this jaunty Superdry watch is only £24.99, so if you have a child that constantly loses things it won't be too much of a disaster. It also comes in monochrome.

Wagstaff

Brooding, manly types (*nudges Mr Muddy*) should take a look at new Beaconsfield-based brand, Wagstaff. This rugged, sporty number is only £95 but looks much more expensive.

Apple

The new series 4 Apple watch since launched in September and is the first major redesign they started making watches - so it's a big deal for techy types. In a nutshell, it's got a bigger screen, a thinner body and new, improved health and fitness features, including an ECG app that tells you if your heart-rate is too high and you need medical attention. Which many come in handy when you clock the £429 price tag.
