For some reason, all the promising telehealth devices we come across seem to suffer from the same bad case of vaporitis, but we'll let these awful renders of Aerotel's GeoSkeeper slide because the idea is actually quite promising. The watch features a GPS receiver, which allows the unit to send your position to rescuers over the built-in GSM / GPRS data module. Of course, that's not a new idea either, but Aerotel's included speakerphone functionality and remote programmability to the device -- meaning everyone will know exactly where you are when you look like a giant nerd using this thing.
