If I'm awake a watch is on my wrist. Sometimes I even sleep with it on my wrist. I'm a nut about precise times and being on time for everything I just use the Wal Mart water resistant 15 dollar watches. They're better than Timex. They take a licking and keep on ticking. They keep really good accurate time. In my more adventurism cave exploring days, I've really given them a beating. Including immersion in water for hours at a time. Not diving, but crawling in cave streams and deep mud for hours. Beating them up on rocks climbing, etc. They worked fine and didn't leak. What more can you ask of a cheap watch.
