Watch for 13 yr old DD?

My 13 yr old DD needs a new watch. Planning to grab her one for Christmas, but I'm pretty out of touch with what's cool when you're that age, and she's doesn't have a preference for brand or type - yet.
What do you think? Any ideas? What does your teen wear, if any?

A baby G or G shock in a cool colour would be good I think.

There are some very cool baby G watches and I know my 13 year old loves hers.

My cousins that are 10 and 13 got ice watches for Christmas last year. Apparently they were a cool thing to have.
I remember when I was 13 I wanted a baby g watch. Obviously they are doing something right

I liked surf branded watches at that age. Baby G were also in when I was a few years older, but I never particularly fancied them.
I was going to get my 5 year old an Ice kids watch for Christmas, I think they're kind of cool looking, but I'm not any barometer of cool by anymeans, so I don't know if they're *actually* cool or not.
I saw Smiggle do watches too, but I don't know if 13 year olds still like Smiggle.

Thanks so much for your ideas. I ended up getting Baby G, G shock and Ice watches on screen and asking her what her preferences were.
She narrowed it down to Ice and then to about 3-4 for me to make the final decision for her. I think I'll get her either this one
or similar but in clear band
or she also likes this one
but I think it's a bit glamorous for school etc!
They're cute watches, thanks for your responses

I like the first one as it has a rounder more feminine look to it for a girl. The last one is very very nice but might be better for an older teenager.

I like the first one. Now I feel sad that Swatch isn't cool at 13. I had a Napoleon Swatch and thought I was IT.

Oh I had a Swatch too and it was pink and had blue and pink criss-cross lines on the white face. That's all I ever wanted.

Have you checked on surfstitch SassyGirl? They have some ripcurl watches and free postage
Good point re the crystals....
LOL re the swatch watches! I even showed her some just cause I still thought they were cool....and fondly remembered coveting them when I was young. She turned me down
She has had, and virtually has worn out a FlikFlak watch though, which is by Swatch....they're great for teaching kids the time and I've bought all my children one for their first watch. They have some v cute designs for young kids.

My 12yo DD has been wearing watches since Yr 3.
Atm, she wears the Lorus Kids Analogue Watch in pink.
She doesn't like digital watches.
When we bought it (a couple of years ago) it only came in 2 colours: baby blue & baby pink, now they come in more colours to choose from.
Baby G is OK but I find them too large on her.
DD has a very small wrist & skinny arms & they appear too big...

Does your school have a dress code? DD wouldn't be able to wear them to school.
DD has a Baby G which is dark purple, her teacher said she can wear it. It's so dark it's almost black.
