    Because my scrubs don't always fit well and I have all sorts of other things hanging so there are times I wouldn't be able to see it. Also, if I have to gown up for a c-section or delivery...watch gone. If it's on my wrist I can pull it out but if it's on my chest it's really just too gone.

    Also, the angle of looking down is not one that works well for me. So even when I can see it there tends to be an awkward angle that gives me a headache. I also tend to hold my wrist with the watch in a spot where I can not only view the watch but also view my newborn.
    When gowning up, I wouldn't think you'd be allowed to pull out a non-sterile watch... kinda defeats the purpose. All the L&D rooms I was in had wall clocks available, and all the warmers had their own timers as well. Maybe not every facility has that, however.

    And my chest is large enough that it protrudes significantly... no awkward viewing angle required! LOL

    I'm not sterile with my gown. My gown is purely protection on my uniform.

    We have digital clocks. I like a second hand.

    My chest...does not protrude any significant amount lol

    I use the air sports watch 2 and I love it. i had the original one but then bought the new one when it came out. the inside watch thingy comes out and the whole thing can be completely washed and cleaned and is sterile, which from what I have read on this thread most of you are concerned about. it has a stopwatch on it too, so I can take a pulse with it. I think the name of the company is Air Sports Watch, or something. I used a coupon code I found "AIR15" and I think it gets you 15% off plus free shipping (don't hold me to it though, it may be old or whatever). atleast it did when I bought it :-)... It runs about 39.95 and you can get 4 or 5 different colors I think.
