Wearing a battery-operated watch on Shabbos


Wearing a battery-operated watch on Shabbat does not present a problem of muktzeh, although some are strict.

The battery is part of the structure of the watch, and the watch itself is a functional implement, which may be worn for its use. It is the same as carrying an implement that includes a screw in its structure - the screw is muktzeh on its own, but it does not render the entire entity muktzeh.

Have a great day,
