Cactus Watches | *CAC-75-M55* Summer Glide - Pink

100m water resistant watch with silicon band

This cool and colourful watch has a soft-touch non-allergenic silicon rubber band. It is perfect for the sunny season, for the beach & pool, and for the rest of the year too! It has a light that you can use to illuminate the dial when it is dark.

Cactus was started in 2006 by husband and wife team, Sheryl and Len Smith. Having moved to Australia, with many years’ experience in the watch industry, they were inspired to create their own range of children’s watches suited to the Australian lifestyle.

Cactus is all about style, quality and design. “We are passionate about our carefully designed range of watches for kids and teens [and all who feel young]. We believe that kids have their own innate sense of style – and we design watches that kids love to wear – watches that capture the energy and freshness of childhood. We create watches that are colourful, fun, and imaginative. We also do edgy and funky styles for trendy kids and teens, as well as time teachers with easy to read faces – perfect for a first watch”.

Cactus delivers good design as part of young people’s everyday lives. Our different collections cater for all aspects of life – school/work, party/play, and sport/leisure. We find our inspiration in the Australian outdoor lifestyle and culture.


Water resistance in watches is commonly misunderstood and it can be confusing. It is expressed as a depth rating in metres but it does not correspond with the actual depth a watch can go to. This is because the different levels of water resistance as expressed in metres are only theoretical - they refer to the depth at which a watch will keep water out, if both the watch and the water are perfectly motionless in a laboratory testing machine (static pressure).

So actually the M is meant as a unit of laboratory testing, not the actual depth you can take a watch down on a dive. 30M water resistance is also expressed as 3 ATM (measurements of atmosphere). Each ATM denotes 10 metres of static water pressure.

Furthermore, water resistance is not permanent - it depends on several factors, some of which are affected by wear and tear, or simply by time. Gaskets, seals or o-rings are used to ensure water resistance, and they corrode or get misshapen over time, or damaged by humidity and hot water or chlorinated water. Watches should be tested for water resistance every two years and gaskets replaced.

Activities for the different levels of water resistance are as follows:

  • 30m - wash hands only (splash proof and rain proof)
  • 50m - wash hands only (splash proof and rain proof)
  • 100m - wash hands, shower, bath, swimming
  • 200m - all of the above plus diving

So just to be clear, your 30m water resistant Cactus watch is specifically excluded from use in the shower, beach or pool, as denoted on the packaging. If you wish to shower or swim with your Cactus watch it must be 100m water resistant (and remember that hot water is never good for your watch).


Your CACTUS watch is warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 1 year from date of purchase. This warranty covers all manufacturing and mechanical defects, but excludes bands, batteries, and lens damage. This warranty excludes water damage in 3 ATM watches as they are specifically excluded from immersion in water [showering and swimming]. Consumer warranty claims must be accompanied by proof of purchase and sent to Avantco, PO Box 784 Bondi Junction, NSW 1355 with a clear return address & telephone number. The warranty claim will be assessed and the watch either repaired or replaced. Replacement watch bands are also available for purchase.

SmartyPants loves Cactus watches for their funky, simple way of teaching children how to tell the time. Their colourful styles are a winner with children of all ages. Many of their styles are even great for adults!
