Abstract

A wrist-worn electronic device capable of time- keeping and having a selective call receiver and a wire- less transmitter, as shown in Figure 1. The device also includes vital sign detectors, such as for pulse rate, body temperature, etc., within the wristband. Figure 2 is a flow chart showing the operation of the device. The pager watch has a processing means, such as a microcomputer for comparing vital sign signals detected within the watch- band detectors against a predetermined range for the vital sign. When the vital sign falls outside of the predetermined range, an activation signal is generated which activates the transmitting of an information sig- nal to a base unit and substantially alerting the user of the problem with an audible alert.

  A wrist-worn electronic device capable of time- keeping and having a selective call receiver and a wire- less transmitter, as shown in Figure 1. The device also includes vital sign detectors, such as for pulse rate, body temperature, etc., within the wristband. Figure 2 is a flow chart showing the operation of the device. The pager watch has a processing means, such as a microcomputer for comparing vital sign signals detected within the watch- band detectors against a predetermined range for the vital sign. When the vital sign falls outside of the predetermined range, an activation signal is generated which activates the transmitting of an information sig- nal to a base unit and substantially alerting the user of the problem with an audible alert.

  When a base station re~ceiver is used which couples to a programmable telephone auto-dialer automatic contacting of a monitoring brvice is provided.

!

  This device is capable ofalerting anyone present in the home by the audible alarm gknerated. When the auto dialer is set to call 911 or any other programmed number, help can be notified even when no b,, else is present in the home.
