Steam Room and Sauna Time

Hi all,

This may be a dumb question but does anyone use tricks or devices to tell time in the steam room and sauna. I want to use either after my workout at the gym but I only have a set time before I need to go back to work…say 10 minutes. I go in and get paranoid that it’s already been 10 minutes and end up leaving after a couple of minutes.

Any advice, I would be extremely grateful.


What if you just brought like a cheap $10 watch with you?

Ask the gym to put a clock up that is visible through the window

My YMCA has a clock on the wall, but I also wear my Apple Watch.

You wear your Apple Watch in the steam room! And it still works?

That was my thought, but wanted to see if anyone had thoughts before I went down that road.

Many of the onsens I visited in Japan had hour glasses. Don’t have to worry about the steam with them. Here is one for $8.99 on Amazon.
