DeathWatch

Tightly strapped onto your wrist, the DeathWatch monitors your heart rate. As soon as it stops for more than ten seconds, the DeathWatch will let out a piercing, shrill beep, alerting others to your predicament. The alarm can be shut off with the press of a button, so others can decide whether to resussicate you. It will also tell time in two different time zones.

Helpful for finding those of you lost in avalanches, and for making sure your body is not ignored if you live alone. It is a small improvement over those emergency necklaces you can press for help, as it kicks in without you pressing it. Best to wear both, though.

It needs a better name than DeathWatch if I want to market it, though.

       All right, that's it. Put your keyboard where we can see it and step away from the 'bakery, sir. I fear quantity is winning out over quality.

       How about a snooze alarm too, in case people need 9 more minutes to decide whether to resuscitate you.
