officially, you are allowed to only bring ID. Everyone else's mileage may vary.

Why do you people ask these questions? You don't need a watch -- there is a clock on the screen. Unless you are planning to cheat, you don't need anything except scratch paper and pencil, both provided by the proctor. If you expect the worse case you will not be dissapointed or unpleasantly surprised.

I think your time is more wisely spent worrying about the content of the test.

agreed. some folks may find it distracting to see a clock continuously ticking on the top left corner but at the same time may want to check the rate at 25th min and 50 th min. hence, the question.

haha...no digital watch was allowed for me. Akamai is right. No need for watch. I was wearing one just so I can keep track of break time. But no need for that either because you have to hit "enter" before each section begins.

From my experience, it seems how strictly the rules are followed depends on the testing center and proctor you wind up with. My proctor didn't care about digital watches, but that could be different elsewhere.

I agree with AkamaiBrah and others that having a watch of any kind is a distraction. You don't need it for measuring time because you have a clock on the computer screen ... which is the official time any way. You will be tempted to look back and forth at your watch which will freak you out even more. As for having a good idea about time splits, if you practice being aware of time when you take the practice tests at home (Power Prep, etc.), then you shouldn't have a problem figuring out time splits with the official clock (see BB's advice on timing elsewhere on this site).
