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.
