Where the Doc’s Watch actually comes from

The English physician Sir John Floyer (1649-1734) introduced the practice of pulse rate measurement. Convinced that many diseases could be detected by measuring a patient’s pulse, Floyer asked watchmaker Samuel Watson to adjust a watch for this exact purpose. To avoid errors, pulsometer scales have been integrated, providing a simple, reliable, and fast way to measure heart rate with the watch. By using a precise pulsometer scale on the watch, doctors were able to determine pulse rates with higher accuracy.
