Overbearing Parents, Jealous Boyfriends and Ordinary Stalkers Will Love This Creepy GPS Phone Watch

Illustration for article titled Overbearing Parents, Jealous Boyfriends and Ordinary Stalkers Will Love This Creepy GPS Phone Watch

Here's something every crazy person who has stalkerish tendencies can buy their loved ones: a GPS tracking watch that tells you exactly where the watch is at any moment. You'll know exactly where he or she is whenever you want. It's LoJack for people.

The watch can also act as an electronic leash, if the watch moves more than 10 feet away from a paired phone, you'll get a text message alerting you. Even better, the watch can be programmed to notify you when the watch wearer enters or leaves a certain area. I can see the lightbulbs going off in the heads of parents across the world already, "You mean, I'll actually know where my little miss Sally is going at night?"

The ruse to sell your kids or your girlfriend or your crush on this creepy watch is that the watch also has phone capabilities (hopefully they won't notice those peering eyes on the face of the watch). Yeah, you see the numbers around the ring of the bezel? That isn't for time, it's actually a dial to make phone calls. The watch can connect to Bluetooth, be programmed with 4 quick favorites, send SOS calls and be programmed to bar certain phone numbers. It's basically the electronic handcuff parents have dreamed of. $80 [Chinavasion via Red Ferret]

If there is no monthly fee on this then I'd actually consider buying one to do the function of something mentioned in the article: LoJack. I'm assuming the battery runs out pretty fast (hence the USB port on the side) but if you've got a car that's got a USB port in the center console (which most new cars have now) buy one of these, plug it in the center console and forget about it. It's a $80 lojack system with no monthly fees!
