If you wanted to buy from a watchlist of solid stocks... those that have moved 2 standard deviations from their average

would you simply use outside the Bollinger to accomplish that?
or is there a better way to show a 2 SD move?

You can also use the Bollinger Oscillator

In this case you look for stocks within your watchlist that have a Bollinger Oscillator value above 100.

The oscillator range value can't exceed 100 if the range is -100 to 100.

No - the value of 100 or -100 corresponds to the Upper and lower BBs. Here is the description from the link I included:

Bollinger Oscillator

Bollinger Width Oscillator(period)
Bollinger Oscillator(period)

The Bollinger Width Oscillator is a simple extension of the Bollinger Bands using the closing price. Essentially the Bollinger Width Oscillator computes the position of the closing price relative to the width of the Bollinger Bands.
This oscillator ranges from -100 to 100. Where a value above 100 indicates the closing price is above the upper band and a value of -100 would indicate the price is below the lower band. Similarly, a value at 0 indicates the price is centered on the median Bollinger line (or moving average.)
