Hey all. After much thinking, I've decided that one of the first purchases I'd like to make by the end of this year (other than my graduation/birthday knife) would be a watch suitable for SAR missions. I quite like my dressy Grenen/Skagen, but it's been through some tough missions and I'd like to keep it in nice condition for the future rather than subject it to the rough and tumble of hiking and rappelling. Not to mention, some watery situations of which it was not designed to endure. At this time, I'm not sure what my budget would be. I'm guessing anywhere between $50 to $150, though keeping the budget low with a simple, yet durable watch with a couple useful functions would be great. I'll be setting aside some money from my summer job for this. I'm not sure how well the functions of these outdoorsy watches work. I know that on these missions, I use my compass quite often. I also use the timer a lot (helps keep track of distance traveled versus time). Alarms can be useful, I suppose. (edited to add) I guess a thermometer (however that works on a watch) will be good too, considering I would use it to reevaluate my water intake. Sometimes I don't realize the humidity and temperature around me that I forget to sip. I've got no use for time zone features. No need for telephone books or anything of that nature. I'll only be taking this watch out for SAR missions and nothing more. Because of this, size really isn't an issue unless it's so bulky that you'd think it'd get in the way of movement through thick shrubbery...? I think that about covers my general concerns for a SAR watch. Thank you for your time! I look forward to your replies. (edited to add) Oh and hey! If it happens to be a cheapo watch (lower end Casio or such) from Wally World that fits these criteria (and anything else y'all can think of), then so be it! I'm not looking for the fanciest schmanciest thing out there. Just something that will do its job... and make my job a little easier. (edited to add) I hope this is my last edit! I'm good with men's watches. Again, not picky. Besides, I don't think most the features I'm looking for are offered in women's watches anyway.
