    time/date (don't need multiple time zones, I know how to subtract)
    stopwatch is necessary
    I'm willing to pay for ruggedness, but the watch has to be thin/lightweight.
    I won't need more than 100 M water resistance, probably closer to 10M

    bells and whisltes I don't care for: compass, altimeter, gps, baramoter
    bells and whisltes I don't mind: alarm, countdown timer, hydration timer

    A cheap sub £20 Cassio would cover nearly all your requirements ( apart from a hydration timer)
    And some have a 10 yr battery allegedly ( mines still gOing after 6 yrs)
    Hope this helps

    I'd often say a G Shock but I think easier button press would be an advantage for you and they are not so lightweight. If you did want a g shock something from the 6900 range could work out well (but not very lightweight)

    This is the watch I use for running

    Its a casio and therefore in my opinion bullet proof. It has an audio and vibrate alarm (great for swimming) and a useful timer mechanism allowing you to display time elapsed together with time elapsed less splits. It also has the usual functions you expect in a watch like this. It also has nice large digits on the display.

    I've had mine for over four years on one battery. Never a problem with it.

    Timex also do a heap of watches which meet your spec but I'm not personally familiar with them.
