    Breitling Emergency

    The Breitling Emergency is a battery-operated watch with a built-in microtransmitter with broadcasting capability of 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency. In the event of a crash or emergency, the watch’s transmitter can be activated by unscrewing a protective cap and pulling out the antenna. A signal is then broadcasted for up to 48 hours for rescuers to home in on. The signal has a range of approximately 160 kilometers for an aircraft flying at 6,000 meters.

    My old coworker had one of these. I would be afraid of accidentally triggering the thing.

    Only if you unscrew and pull out the antenna. For the average 'Joe Bag of Donuts', bragging rights.

    While this is great in a watch, it is much easier and cheaper to have a personal emergency locator beacon.

    They cost a fraction and are reusable.

    I think the 121.5 mhz channel may be on the way out.
