The Best Watches for Nurses and Medical Professionals

Nurses and medical professionals in general are proof that not all heroes wear capes, but they do all wear good watches! Nurses watches are an integral part of a medical professionals kit, since time keeping is such an important aspect of the job. Watches allow medical professionals to keep a track of time and record patients' vitals such a heartrate and pulse readings, schedule medication, and document everything with absolute precision and timeliness. Reliable watches are therefore pivotal to those working in the medical industry and for that reason we’ve put together a list of our best 7 watches for medical professionals which are all available to order right here right now at Medshop.

Note: This list doesn’t follow any specific order, which means that the first watch isn’t necessarily better than the last. This list was put together in order to offer you a variety and choice of some of our favourite watches at Medshop. Regardless of whether you’re into fobs or straps, our list of best medical watches is bound to have something here that every student, nurse, doctor, assistant, caregiver or any other medical professional will love!

Silicone Nursing Fob Watch

If you have ever wondered what kind of watches nurses wear, here’s your answer. Receiving a fob watch is almost like a rite of passage for new nurses and many other professionals in the medical industry. Silicone fob watches are possibly the most popular watches among nurses in the whole of healthcare, due to a number of different reasons. 

Fob watches are extremely convenient as they simply attach to your lapel, or pocket, which is perfect if you have to conform to the ‘bare below the elbow’ rule. Because of this, the fob watch is also our most hygienic watch, and generally harbours significantly less bacteria than a wrist watch. Additionally, they make great pocket watches when you're off the job. 

The clock is upside down to ensure that it's easy to quickly read in any situation. Our fob watches feature a silicone finish, glow in the dark hands on the watch dial, quartz movement, and 12-month warranty. We also have many different colour options of the silicone finish available to appeal to anybody's taste. 

Perfect for anyone who doesn’t like, or simply can’t wear, a watch on their wrist and anybody who values versatility and style. Fob watches are essentially the number one all rounder when it comes to watches in the medical sector.
