A Watch that Can Find Missing Persons

Call off the search party. Here is a device that can find those who are lost immediately. The Keruve GPS tracking device is a watch that can be worn by anyone, but was really designed for the purpose of aiding people with Alzheimer's. This High Tech watch has a built in GPS tracker and can be easily monitored via a small GPS receiver that the caregiver would carry with them. The receiver can also be set up to establish a perimeter that a patient can roam within and alert the health care worker when he/she has gone beyond a boundary.

Unlike regular watches, this watch has a wristband that has a locking mechanism that can only be opened with the use of a special tool (hopefully the tool doesn't get lost). The Keruve tracking device is also waterproof.

I know an invention such as this provides peace of mind to those in the caring field and safety for those who suffer from memory loss, but I also think this would be great for parents who want to know their child's whereabouts. What do you think?

Coming soon... Implantable GPS! Yay!

Soon we will all have one of these implanted in our body. That may reduce kidnappings but at the sacrifice of all of our freedoms.
