Best Wrist Watches For Nurses | EMT | Firefighters In 2019

Chronograph Watches Under $500

Let’s take a look at the best watches for nurses, paramedics, and firefighters for both men and women to use in 2018.

Now, this isn’t limited to just these jobs, these watches will be great for pretty much any medical profession.

I’ve tried to rank these my how useful they can be for the job but of course, I had to factor in looks into the equation, at least a little bit.

 

Luminox Men’s 3051 EVO Navy SEAL Colormark Watch

The Luminox Men’s 3051 EVO Navy SEAL Colormark Watch is easily one of the best watches you can use.

It’s has a quality build, easy to use, with a simple to read dial.

Here are what we like about this watch:

  • Large Easy To Read Contrast White Markers
  • Strong Buckle Closure So That It Doesn’t Come Off Easy
  • Water Resistant Up To 200 M
  • Band Is Made of Polyurethane For Easy Cleaning
  • Has Tritium In It For Easy Viewing At Nighttime

Overall this is a very good watch from a great brand in the watch industry.

Some women may not like the overall look of it but it can be used both men or women.

The only downside I can say about this watch is it’s a little more on the pricey side compared to the other watches on our list.

SKMEI Digital Sport Watch

The SKMEI Digital Sport Watch makes for a perfect watch to use when out on calls or in the hospital.

Here are the reasons we chose this watch:

  • Price
  • Large Easy To Read Numbers
  • Has Military Time
  • Waterproof (Able To Wash Hands With It On)
  • Has A Stop Watch
  • Features The Date
  • PU Leather Band

Okay, I’ll stop with there with the perks of using this watch but as you can tell this watch has everything you need & then some to make it perfect for a medical watch.

The band is made of PU leather which makes for easy cleaning, which is a must because you’re likely to get all sort of body fluids, blood etc.. on your watch.

On top of all that, this watch works for both men and women looks wise.

Timex Weekender 40mm Watch

The Timex Weekender 40mm Watch is our next pick.

This is probably the best-looking watch on the list in my opinion. It’s simple but has a great overall appearance to it.

It doesn’t offer a lot of features like the others we’ve talked about but if you’re just looking for a watch that looks good & had what’s needed then this can be a good watch.

Here are the features it has:

  • 24 Hour Military Time
  • Genuine Leather Wrist Strap
  • Easy To Change Out The Wrist Bands
  • Waterproof Enough For Getting Splashed On
  • Durable

If you don’t need all of the extras like a stopwatch, date or any extra but want a watch that you can use for work just as well if you were out on a date then this watch is a solid option.

Speidel Scrub Watch

The Speidel Scrub Watch is a favorite amongst nurses & nursing students.

Similar to our third pick it takes a very simple yet reliable approach to it.

Even though you can change out the wristbands on this, it still focuses on more feminine colors which are a bummer.

There are some gender neutral colors like the teal & blue but they are too light for most guys.

However, like I said changing out the bands is always an option.

Details about this watch:

  • 100% Silicone Band
  • Easy To Clean
  • Waterproof
  • Large Hour Numbers
  • Military Time

Speidel also has a good reputation for their watches, which is always a plus.

LEMFO LF19 Digital Smart Watch

The LEMFO LF19 Digital Smart Watch finishes up our best men’s/women’s firefighter, nurses, EMT wrist watches list.

Now with the number of features this watch has, it could have easily been our #1 pick but it’s also one of the reasons why it wasn’t.

By that I mean, sure it’s nice to have tons of features but along with that makes it slightly more complex with each additional feature. That’s pretty much for anything, not just watches.

Well, here’s a watch that is loaded with features but made me a bit too much for some.

Let’s take a look at said features:

  • Waterproof
  • Very Good Battery
  • BlueTooth
  • Fitness tracker
  • Stopwatch
  • Luminous Dial

Most of these make for a great medical watch & then a nice little extra touch with some things like the fitness tracker.

Now working in a hospital, you walk a lot (depending on your department) & I know a lot of female nurses I work/spoke with would always wonder how many steps/calories they’ve walked/burned that shift.

This resulted in buying a bunch of fitness tracker watches, but they would also tend to have another watch on with it for more work-related reasons.

I’m getting off topic here. This watch looks good, is loaded with features & has everything one would need for work.

What To Consider When Buying A Watch When In The Medical Profession

So, how did I come to choosing the watches I did, for what reason did these appeal to me?

How Much To Spend On A Medical Profession Watch

Working in the medical field, you’ll be dealing with all sorts of people, situations & you never know what you might be exposed to.

You don’t want to pay for an expensive watch that might get pulled off when loading a patient, get blood all over it (even if you can wash it).

There are numerous amounts of things that could happen to your watch.

If something does, you don’t want to be left holding a $200 paperweight or worse not even knowing where it is.

Get A Mostly Waterproof Watch

You want to have a watch that won’t die out on you if it gets caught in the rain or if it gets wet when washing your hands.

You’re constantly having to wash your hands in any medical profession & having to take your watch off each time would be a complete pain in the butt.

Find A Watch That Is Easy To Clean

By clean, I don’t mean just using a wet rag on it but disinfectant clothes you would use in the hospital.

Like I mentioned, your watch can be exposed to numerous amounts of things so you’ll want something that won’t trap it anything & that would be able to wash off.

Some people are even to where if they get blood on their watch they just prefer to junk it & buy a new one, just in case. This is where the price factor comes in that I mentioned above.

Military Time Is A Must For Watches In The Medical Profession

When charting/documenting anything you’re most likely going to be doing this in military time.

Having a watch that you can just glance down at to verify what the hour is in military time make it much easier.

The End

Alright, this is where I leave you, folks.

I tried my best to pick watches that would work for best across all medical professions jobs & all gender neutral watches as well.

With that being said, certain ones may work better for female nurses than they would for male firefighters but either way, you have some good watches to choose from at least.

Best Skeleton Watches Under $500 | $1000 For 2019

Chronograph Watches Under $500

This post will be about the 2018 best skeleton watches under $500 dollars and $1000 dollars that you can buy.

Now, I do want to explain why I’m doing both five hundred & a thousand in the same article, why not a separate an article for each?

Well, not on purpose but all of my picks just happen to fall under both categories.

Let’s take a look said picks, shall we?

Jiusko 210LSG02 Luxury Mens Skeleton Stainless Steel Dress Watch

The Jiusko 210LSG02 Luxury Mens Skeleton Stainless Steel Dress Watch easily comes in as our top pick.

Everything about this watch screams luxury.

But it’s not all about looks, the quality matches it which it better at this price in my opinion.

Let’s look at some of the features this watch has to offer:

  • Wrist Bracelet Is Made of Elegant Silver Stainless Steel
  • Has Scratch Proof Sapphire Glass 
  • Layered Bezel – Gold Open Heart Skeleton Dial
  • Has Diamonds At The 3, 6, 9 & 12 O’clock Hour Markers.
  • Water Resistant Up To 100 Meters

These are just some of the features this watch has to offer.

I could honestly go on about this watch for awhile but we have to see what else there is!

However, there is no doubt this watch is an outstanding skeleton watch for men to wear.

Burgmeister Men’s Mechanical Stainless Steel and Leather Casual Watch

The Burgmeister Men’s Mechanical Stainless Steel and Leather Casual Watch comes in at our 2nd place pick.

This watch has a much different vibe to it than our first pick.

While I first pick was all about business luxury, this watch has a more relaxed feel to it.

A Look At The Details About This Watch:

  • Stainless Steel Case
  • Black Leather Strap
  • 47mm Case Diameter
  • Mechanical-Hand-Wind Movement

This is a great skeleton style watch that can work great for professional or casual every day use occasions.

Stuhrling Original Men’s 797.02 Legacy Analog Display Automatic Self Wind Gold Watch

The Stuhrling Original Men’s 797.02 Legacy Analog Display Automatic Self Wind Gold Watch comes in at number 3 on our list.

I really wanted to rank this watch as my number one pick because it really is a sensational watch. Only reason I didn’t is because there is just a lot going on in the backdrop of this watch.

I just wish the hour/minute hands stuck out more, instead of blending with the backdrop.

If they used the blue color that they used at the 12 hour mark on the hands instead of the black I think it would have really looked good + made it stick out more.

Let’s See What This Watch Has To Offer:

  • Features An AM/PM Indicator
  • 46mm Gold Tone Stainless Steel Round Case
  • Shatter Resistant Krysterna Crystal Window
  • Water Resistant Up To 50 Meters or 165 Feet

These are just some of the features but without a doubt the AM/PM indicator is probably the coolest feature I’ve seen on any watch.

Bulova Men’s Automatic Watch

The Bulova Men’s Automatic Watch takes the #4 spot on our list.

I really like this watch not only because of the quality, but the main thing is how good the blue they used really makes the dial look.

It really makes it stand out in a good way, bringing in the complements.

Let’s take a look at other things this watch has to offer besides the color.

  • Stainless Steel Case With A Silver/Blue Skeleton Dial
  • Water Resistance Up To 30 Meters or 100 ft
  • Self-winding Movement

This watch can go well with casual or business type use.

Ingersoll Men’s IN7904WHG Arizona II Mechanical Timepiece Gold Tone Skeleton Watch

The Ingersoll Men’s IN7904WHG Arizona II Mechanical Timepiece Gold Tone Skeleton Watch is our final pick for our list.

I like this watch because of the big roman numerals for the hours & really enjoy how the blended a silver/gold into the skeleton background.

On top of that it has a nice silver pattern edge which brings the dial to another level in looks.

Here are some of the main features of this watch:

  • Mechanical Movement
  • Has A Smaller Dial Showing Seconds
  • Genuine Leather Strap
  • Water Resistant To 99 Feet (30 M): Withstands Rain And Splashes Of Water, But Not Showering Or Submersion

Overall this is a fantastic watch, that has a big dial.

The End

It was really hard ranking these watches in our Best Skeleton Watches Under $500 | $1000 For 2017 list.

I honestly had to move these watches around, ranking wise, a few different times.

Overall I’m content on how this list turned out & with the watches that we decided to go with.

If you think another watch should be added to our list, then shoot us an email because it’s one we may not know about!

The Gosasa Mens Business Tritium Luminous Military Watch has to be our #1 pick.

Deep Blue Papa Praesto Automatic Aviator Watch

The Deep Blue Papa Praesto Automatic Aviator Watch is our runner up, that is much different than our #1 pick.

Rather than this watch have a professional/business style look to it, instead it offers a more outdoor look to it.

With that being said it still has that look that will still be good for a everyday work watch as well.

Luminox Men’s 3051 EVO Navy SEAL Colormark Watch

The Luminox Men’s 3051 EVO Navy SEAL Colormark Watch comes in at our 3rd place pick.

I honestly had a hard time trying to decide where to rank this watch.

Looks wise, I’m not a huge fan but usability is where this watch really excels.

This Watch Features:

  • An Anti-Reflective Sapphire Dial
  • Has A Nice Tuxedo Style Background
  • Calendar
  • Waterproof Up To 100m
  • Tritium Tube On Every Hour Mark & On The Hour/Minute Hands As Well

Epoch is a trusted name in the watch industry. Take that along with the amazing look of this watch & you’ve you a great combo for a quality wrist watch.

Mastop Men’s Swiss Tritium Luminous Sports Watch

The Mastop Men’s Swiss Tritium Luminous Sports Watch brings up the final watch on our list.

This watch is sort of a mix of different styles we’ve mentioned on this list so far.

With the wrist wear being stainless steel, you get the professional type look to it. Then with the dial it has outdoor type look to it, or at least not as fancy as the other professional watch dials we’ve mentioned.

This Watch Features:

  • Gaseous Tritium Light Source
  • 10ATM Waterproof
  • Crystal synthetic-sapphire
  • 316L Stainless Steel
  • Date Display

If you’re having a difficult time deciding if other watches may be to fancy or not enough then maybe this one would be a suitable alternative to capture a little bit of both sides of things.

Best Professional Hair Clippers For Barbers Under $100 2019

best clippers for barbers

Let’s take a look at the best professional hair clippers that barbers can buy for under $100 dollars for 2018.

Hair clippers to barbers are like a lightsaber to a Jedi.

It’s something they use daily & picking out the right one is an important decision.

Andis Stylist Combo Trimmer

Our top pick goes to the Andis Stylist Combo Trimmer set. For reliability, precision & over all quality this has to be the best for the price.

This combo features:

  • A T-Outliner Trimmer For Trimming, Shaving or Outlining.
  • A Professional Motor Trimmer
  • A BeauWis Blade Brush

This is a great combo, that should be everything you need from a trimmer, to allow all kinds of haircuts, including fades.

An overlooked perk from most trimmers is that these feature easy hanging loops on the ends which helps with storing them safer/easier.

Wahl Professional 5-Star Cord/Cordless Magic Clip

Next up we have the Wahl Professional 5-Star Cord/Cordless Magic Clip.

This clipper not only works amazing but actually as an aesthetic appeal to it as well. Which really doesn’t matter but it’s still a nice plus.

The Features:

  • Powerful Rotary Motor
  • 90 Minute Run Time When Fully Charged
  • 8 Attachment Combs
  • Weighs 10 oz

Wahl has built a very reliable name in the trimmer/clipper line of things & this product continues to follow that tradition.

If you want a quality clipper to use in your barbershop then you’re going to have a difficult time finding one much better than this.

WAHL Professional 5 Star Series Barber Combo No. 8180

The WAHL Professional 5 Star Series Barber Combo No. 8180 takes our third spot in our list.

Similar to our first pick, this is a combo of the main clipper Legend & Hero, which is a smaller blade trimmer which is better for doing lining work.

This Combo Features:

  • Legend – Main Clipper
  • Hero – Smaller Trimmer
  • 8 Attachment Combs & 3 Blade Guides
  • 8 Foot Power Cord For Each

This is another great clipper combo that any barber would love to have.

Wahl Professional Sterling 4 Clipper/Sterling Bullet Trimmer Combo

The Wahl Professional Sterling 4 Clipper/Sterling Bullet Trimmer Combo is very similar to the combo we just mentioned before this one.

However, some barbers/stylists say they do like or dislike one over the other so I didn’t just want to assume everyone one go with the above.

This Combo Features:

  • Sterling 4 Clipper (Main)
  • Bullet Trimmer (Touch Ups)
  • Comes With 6 Cutting Guides Ranging From (1/8” – 1”) Lengths For The Sterling
  • 4 Trimming Guides For Lengths (1/8” – ½”) For The Bullet

What really makes this combo different from the others mentioned above is the size of the Bullet.

For small touch-ups, linings & other things, some barbers prefer a smaller tool for this.

How To Take Care Of Your Hair Clippers

One of the first things a barber or stylist learns is how to take care of their equipment.

It doesn’t matter if you buy the most expensive equipment out their, if you don’t take care of it then it’s going to start to perform at lesser quality over time.

Now different clippers are made in different ways, so I can’t do a walkthrough for each type/brand of clippers but there are some things that you will do for each clipper not matter what brand or type you’re using.

Here is a good video covering some solid points on what you need to do to take care of your hair clippers.

 

I can’t stress enough how important it is to take care of your equipment, not only your clippers.

The good thing about most equipment used by barbers is that it can last you a lifetime, if you buy a quality item, take care of it & have a little luck on your side.

On top of that, it directly affects how your work goes.

Clippers Don’t Make The Barber

I remember getting my hair cut when I was younger & it was from someone who had never cut my hair before.

This barber (if I can even call him that) jacked my hair all up, to the point where I just had to get it buzzed all over.

What made this matter ten times worse, is that he had talked about how he had gotten these brand new sweet clippers, & had all these certificates from these barber programs.

Basically what I’m trying to get at is don’t go into buying clippers thinking they will magically make you good at cutting hair.

Just as buying a new bat isn’t going to make a drastic change to a baseball players batting percentage.

With that being said, of course, you still always wanted to focus on the clippers that work the best for you.

If you’re just starting out or maybe wanting to get a whole new setup of equipment, then look into getting an entire barber kit. Rather than buying each piece individually.
