    Cheap Casio with a metal or plastic band. When it goes 10-7 you can replace it cheap. Each time you wash your hands you can wash the watch. No cloth or leather bands.

    I like Duluth Trading but that watch is a frippery.

    Nurses used to buy watches that pinned to the smock, er, shirt.

    I use a cheap pink Walmart waterproof watch with a plastic I think? Band.

    It cost me $14 and I've worn it since October. When it craps out I will buy another cheap Walmart watch. Maybe green. I think the brand is timex sport or some such.

    A Timex with a rubber watchband. Velco brands are difficult to clean and get really smelly during the summer if they get wet repeatedly.

    Thanks for the replys so far. :)

    Because of the national hygienic standard here in DK, we must not wear wrist watch, so I am looking for one to sit my belt.

    I got a calculator watch at walmart for a laugh. $8.99 or so. Yeah, you have to touch it if you want to actually use the calculator or the stop watch function, but it stays in my locker at work and gets washed whenever i wash my hands.

    get a cheap digital wrist watch, with a cloth band, and wrap it around the neck of your stethoscope. that's what I do, and it ensure I always have a scope with me when I'm on the ambulance (unlike many newbies and former partners of mine).

    Fully washable, operates on solar energy, no moving parts, no scratch-able or breakable crystal, waterproof to any depth, but no daylight savings time adjustment (check back next year). Maybey autoclavable.

    I use the clock on the wall.

    Stopped wearing a watch completely.

    I was told it makes people happier... Liars.

    How do you take a pulse? Use the clock on your phone/tablet computer?

    Watches are necessary for vital signs but also useful for repeating medication administrations (especially nitroglycerin), watching your scene times, CPR calls, etc.

    I use a cheapy Timex i440. Rubber wristband makes for easy cleaning.

    I use whatever machine is handy. They are not new technology anymore, have a high degree of accuracy,

    THe only thing I need to take a manual pulse for is heart tones, to see if there is a pulse,the relative rate, and quality.[/QUOTE]

    This.

    All times are based off of the LP clock. My initial manual pulse and respiratory rate are just to establish too fast or too slow. Subsequent manual assessments are done in conjunction with other monitoring methods that provide the rate.
