New Toolwatch Ideas

We've seen watches with bezels for divers, compasses for explorers, extra hands to track time for for frequent flyers, antimagnetism for scientists, I've even seen one with a metronome for musicians.

My question is, what addition tool/s would you like to see added to a watch, that would benefit your profession or hobby?

A little compartment where I can put a folded up playing card. For some reason I don't think it'll come to pass.

Honestly, divers or skindiver types with a timing bezel serve me well as a massage therapist. I obviously don't wear my watch when I'm working on someone, but I love the legibility and timing bezel options for sitting on a table in my massage room so I know my stopping time, cause our clocks where I work are caca.

I apologize if my post is rambling, runs on, or doesn't make sense. I'm awake at 3:48AM with what feels like the flu.

Great idea, a small compartment could have a lot of uses. I'm imagining a watch that reminds you to take your pills and maybe even stores one or two. Might need to go quarts for some extra room in the case/lugs.

I like the idea of legible at a distance timers. I was thinking for psychologists looking at your watch could be seen as rude and not all rooms have clocks. In your case a watch could get in the way. Something like a coloured bar that fills up as a preset time elapses could be cool too.

Maybe something that can alert you when you’ve received a message or a call… that would be interesting 🤔 

must look good with a blue suit apparently.

A henshin/transformer for our Kamen Rider/Space Sheriff/Power Ranger needs? 😛😂

Honestly nothing much, all I want is high legibility and great design. A wrist watch is nothing more than a slightly useful jewellery in 2023.

A metronome for playing musical instruments. I think it is doable.

Watches with compartments exist? The Trifoglio Vault for example. If it also had an alarm to remind then it would probably have to be huge 😅

Omega should bring back the soccer/football timer. My son played 50club soccer games a year for 7 years and there’s never a scoreboard with the time. 
 

A defect counter for QC roles. Push the button and it counts incrementally up one. 
 

Breitling should bring back the slide rule in the chronomat model.

Haha, ok I wasn't the first one for the idea. Thank you for sharing. I should thought about seiko.

Basically anything you could ever want a smartwatch can do these days so realistically the only people who need old school tool watches is those whose work doesn't allow bringing a smartwatch. 

There aren't too many places I can think of that might have such restrictions. Defense related technology jobs and "financial research" (ie certain hedge funds) come to mind. Can't think of anything they'll really want from a mechanical watch.
