Pros: rugged, durable, simple
Cons: after extended use the velcro starts to fail, an illuminated second hand would help with obtaining a heart rate and respirations on a patient in the dark.

I received this watch a few years ago as a gift, and have used it ever since. It has held up through police, fire, and now military service. The only downfall to this watch is that you have to touch up the black paint if it has been scuffed.
