    I know that time keeping/management is a key part of the military and ROTC. I will be joining the NROTC unit at RPI and I am looking to buy a good watch for my time in the unit. When I was at the Naval Academy for a visit I noticed a few mids had smartwatches (i.e. Galaxy Gear, Apple Watch). Does anyone have a recommendation?

    Thank you!

    Something rough and sturdy that will be difficult to break. Any Casio G-Force is an excellent choice.

    What exactly are you looking for?
    Analog or digital?
    What sort of features do you want/need? Ex: chrono, multiple timezones, waterproof...
    What sort of budget do you have?

    Some cheaper recommendations would be Casio G-Shock (digital), Timex Expedition (digital and analog, there are a bunch of models), or a Casio MTD 10-10 (more dive-ey, looks a lot like a Rolex Submariner)

    Anything that is durable, water resistant, digital, has a stopwatch and countdown timer will serve you well.
