Does anyone have one of these? I really like the look of this and was wondering if anyone had any shots of it on the wrist.

Hi Omegamanic,
There are currently two Pulsemeter watches, with a third coming this autumn.

The original Pulsemeter was launched in 2004, while the Pulsemeter Pro was launched last year.

This year, Ball Watch Company has created the Doctor's Chronograph.

I will try to see if I can find some additional photos or press coverage of these watches for your reference.

Regards,

Re: BALL Trainmaster Doctor's Chronograph

My pulse must have quickened by at least 15bpm when I saw this watch. However, I would never get one because of a latent self esteem issue with never accomplishing my parents' dream of me becoming a doctor!

I like how the watch looks, but totally clueless as to what it's function is and how it works.

What is the red scale that goes from 1 to 7?

The scale is for making it easier to take a person's pulse. You see the "graduated for 15 pulsations" text on the dial. You simply feel a person's pulse and start the chronograph while counting 15 pulsations, when you have done that you stop the timing and - voila! The watch has "calculated" the pulse for you :) So if you measured for example 15 pulses in 15 seconds, you can read out the pulse as 60 (pretty straightforward).

It works the same way as the normal tachymeters that is usually seen on chronographs but that scale is set for speed.

Yeah, I saw that stock photo of the dr's chrono a few months ago in one of the mags, and was just amazed. It is absolutely beautiful. I assumed they would be sold out immediately. How could any doctor pass on buying one of these?! (Not that you have to be a doctor to get one :-d). I've not yet seen a pic of one on a wrist, so I hope you decide to pick one up and post! :-!

Regards,

My AD had mentioned something about doctors possibly being able to buy these and just classifying it as business use and just write it off when it comes to tax time :-d
