I am starting to like the Apple Watch, I like the "at a glance" feature and the silent vibration notifications. The only drawback I see is the price.

Is there a certain requirement a watch must have to be used as a nurse in a hospital? I'm looking into the apple watch for my boyfriend and was wondering if it was even an option because I'm not sure if the watch needs to have certain things. Thanks!!

I'm planning to start nursing school in the spring, and I am wondering if the watch I have is an unwise choice to wear. You see, I was gifted a very nice watch (a Rolex Oyster Perpetual AirKing) by my stepfather. He was the inspiration for me to go to nursing school after he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme. A few months before he passed on he gave me the watch he used to wear before edema made it impossible to do so, one of his prize possessions (he wasn't a rich man), telling me he knew I'd need a good watch for nursing school and my career as a nurse. I want to honor his memory, but if it is impractical to do so I'm sure he would understand.

So, it's a waterproof rolex, it's in decent shape, and it tells time beautifully. Is it a bad idea to wear an expensive watch in a hospital setting? It's unlikely to be damaged by fluids since it's all stainless steel and it's waterproof, but will it be a source of social problems from fellow students, coworkers or patients?

I think it will be a nice homage to him and a constant reminder to you why you entered the field. I say wear it. At the same time though, as with most things, you are the one that needs to feel comfortable wearing it. If you don't feel comfortable, then you'll never be truly happy with it. I also wear an expensive watch and I can tell you that unless other people are purposely looking for your watch, they are not going to notice it. Moreover, I would hope that your personality, skill, and passion will matter more to your peers and patients than what is on your wrist. Enjoy your time piece!

I graduate nursing school in May and plan on getting myself a Speedy as a graduation present. I work at the hospital as a tech now and my Seiko Sumo does the job. I'm a lover of timepieces though, so graduation is a great excuse to purchase another!

Chronographs can definitely come in handy as an RN(see how I rationalize?!?)

Prestige medical sells an analogue watch for about $16 on Amazon that has 24-hour time printed in smaller print along with the normal watch face. That can be hard to find, and its nice to have a second hand AND military time when usually you need to pick between the two.

Not sure of the quality, but seeing as its $16 and made by a medical equipment supplier it should stand up to the job long enough to make it cost effective even if you are replacing it now and then (also makes a cheap backup to hide somewhere at work in case you forget your watch at home!)

Same here I LOVE mechanical watches and the idea of so much precision in a mechanical device. Stuhrling makes a nice skeleton watch that lets you see the movement well.

I recommend switching the band to something that can stand up to regular disinfection, leather doesn't work well.

I wear a Vostok automatic (self-winding), made in Russia originally for their military. They're sort of unique looking (i.e. not a Timex or Casio), bomb-proof, waterproof, and the one I have has 24-hour markings and a rubber strap. I just wash the whole thing with soap and water after a MRSA- or VRE-rich shift. There's an Ebay seller named "zenitar" who has the self-winding watches for $75 - $85 (with shipping), or manual-wind ones for $35 - $50. He changed the leather band to a rubber band on the first watch I bought from him when I asked through Ebay.

I wear a Casio G-Shock. You want something you can just throw in the sink and wash off.

Big time(military time), big second hand, and the date. No other crap on the face.

I am very happy with my $15 Armitron from Walmart. And I'm a watch snob that is into automatics outside of work.

I would go with what is comfortable on your wrist. I've always thought bands especially plastic/poly get really hot and uncomfortable, and like a bracelet strap, plus a good stainless watch you can steam clean if need be.
