There are a lot of choices in watches today. You can choose a simple watch or you can choose a tiny computer that you wear on your wrist. The problem with the tiny computers is that they are expensive and something you probably don’t want to wear while engaging in sports because of the potential of damage from sweat or shocks to the watch. The ScoreBand watch, at first glance, may appear to be a simple watch, but it is designed for sports. It has a water-resistant silicone band (which has been “infused with beneficial negative ions minerals”). In addition to keeping the time, the ScoreBand keeps score in three mode: golf (keep hole and round score), tennis (keep game and set score for two players), and all sports (keep score, statistics, and counts). The ScoreBand is available with a black or white band and your choice of gray, orange, green, or berry inserts; there’s also a limited-edition breast cancer awareness model. The ScoreBand is $24.99 from the website; it’s also available from Sears online, BrookStone, GolfSmith.
