    Shameful WUS article - Timex Tesla.

    https://www.watchuseek.com/must-feel...ellness-watch/

    I'm sorry but this entire article is utter woo and babble. WUS should be ashamed. I strongly suspect that the author has just repeated what ever marketing garbage he's been fed without questioning or understanding a single word.

    Some snippets:

    Well for starters, electromagnetic fields do not "build up". When you turn on a radio transmitter, computer or any high frequency device, it will emit electromagnetic radiation (we call 'em radio waves). The intensity of the field decreases rapidly as you move away from the source. Turn off the source and the field disappears. Leaving the source on does not lead to a increase or build up in field levels.

    Then the second half of this statement goes on to attribute health issues to the emissions. I've yet to see a single medical study that conclusively proves any such links. Perhaps the author would like to back up his claim by citing such a study.

    Nope, they don't. A very quick google turned up this: https://www.who.int/peh-emf/publicat...s_June2006.pdf . My explanatory additions to the original text in bold.

    The majority of studies indicate that IEI individuals cannot detect EMF exposure any more accurately than non-IEI individuals. By and large well controlled and conducted double-blind studies have shown that symptoms do not seem to be correlated with EMF exposure.
    Please provide a link to the WHO statement you're quoting from.

    Well the watch battery has a static electric field. It is barely measurable but it is there. The Earths magnetic field is also static. It doesn't have a frequency. Is the author referring to some other changing field around our planet? If so, please explain which field. If not, perhaps he could explain how you synchronise something that doesn't vary with something that doesn't vary.

    OK, I'll admit it. Despite studying electronics for 7 years and working at the bleeding edge for the last 25 years, I have no idea what you're talking about. Could you please explain what "a zero-point waveform with a scalar pulse" actually is?

    Oh great, a proper peer reviewed scientific study. Can we have a link please?

    Oh, look at that! Disclaimers. I was pretty sure that the earlier part of this article claimed 300 million people were suffering from EMH, if that's not a disease what is it? And if this watch doesn't treat the disease of EMH, can we safely assume it does absolutely nothing more than tell the time?

    I agree. It is ridiculous to pander to this sort of anti-reality nonsense.

    I foresee five possible outcomes.

    1/ They delete this thread to cover up their lack of integrity. (The same text is posted elsewhere).
    2/ They ban me.
    3/ They stand by their article and explain the terminology and cite sources for their claims.
    4/ They retract the article.

    Not a lot of chance of 3/ or 4/ happening IMHO. 1/ & 2/ aren't mutually exclusive.

    Lack of integrity? WUS? Not a chance, look at how the admins and powers that be have handled the Ginault controversy....WUS would never support and accept business revenue from a known counterfeit Rolex producer, right? (sarcasm)

    Do I think it's a pile of steaming nonsense? Absolutely.

    Is WUS being irresponsible?

    Written *3 months* ago.

    Of course the article is gonna echo the company claims. Do you expect WUS to be making some kind of field test?
