A digital watch or clock is a type of clock that displays the time digitally that is in numerals or symbols, opposed to an analogue mechanical clock, where the time is indicated by the positions of rotating hands.
More than 40 years ago, the Hamilton Watch Company introduced the world’s first commercial electronic digital wristwatch.
It was named Pulsar and was an 18-carat-gold cased device that used a red LED to tell the time to the user. However, it was very expensive.
Later, the Pulsar became a subsidiary of Seiko, and inexpensive, plastic strapped versions of the digital watch were introduced into the market.
Digital watches are more accurate and stylish. In addition, digital clocks can be very small and inexpensive.
As a result, they are often incorporated into all kinds of devices such as cars, radios, televisions, microwave ovens, standard ovens, computers, and cell phones.
