The Cons Of BeWell Watches

The downsides to BeWell are what you might expect from a wooden watch brand on the more affordable side of the wooden watch price scale. Considering their watches tend to range from about $30 – $150 (compared to other companies like Original Grain (read our complete Original Grain Review) or Holzkern (read our Holzkern buyer review) that tend to be $200 a watch plus). The Downsides of BeWell:

  • The BeWell watch quality and choice of materials are solid – but not the highest quality.
  • Their customer service is at times a little slow to respond and not always the most helpful.

If you are looking for a great looking and good quality watch made from wood for yourself or a gift – and would like to spend less than $100 BeWell is absolutely a top watch brand to consider.
