Digital watch for the bar

Postby tx1987 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 6:44 pm

Hi everyone! I bought a very standard, basic digital watch at Target for $20. It is not programmable, but it does make a beep everytime I hit the start button. Do y'all think that it would be okay to bring in? I don't want it to get confiscated.

Texas specifically states nothing that makes noise at all or it will be confiscated.

I should have specified that I'm taking the NY bar. Thanks, though!

I have no idea what they mean by "programmable" but I personally would err on the side of caution and bring an analog watch. I'm picturing having some conversation with an octogenarian exam proctor in the middle of the MPT about how your digital watch isn't actually programmable.

In Illinois we can't wear a watch at all. Crazy how much it varies from state to state

FWIW, I went to Walmart today and bought a decent-looking, silent, analog watch for nine bucks.
