Exams - New Watch Rule

Clock drawn on a blackboard

As an extension to my earlier blogpost on exam preparation, I just read a story online from The Telegraph (click here) that wearing traditional watches in exams has been banned.  You are allowed to have a traditional watch on your desk but you are not allowed to wear it.  This is because smart watches can be disguised as traditional watches and some people have been found cheating with them.  Smart watches are definitely banned.

According to the BBC the disguised smart watches can be hooked up to an audio ear piece that can play audio or display text on the screen (click here).  They even have emergency buttons that can switch the "cheating" mode off.

I wonder if there will be a standard watch eventually like there is a standard calculator that's allowed?
