Breitling Emergency II: A Satellite Distress Signal On Your Wrist By Andrew Liszewski on at

Breitling's original Emergency watch first launched back in 1995 and was able to broadcast a distress signal on the 121.5 MHz analog band allowing ships, planes, and other vehicles to track it. But if your approximate location wasn't already known, it made locating the signal a bit tricky. So Breitling is introducing an upgraded version of the watch—the Emergency II —that adds the ability to send a distress signal to satellites circling overhead, so no matter where on Earth you're lost, you can be found.

The Emergency II still broadcasts a 121.5 MHz analog signal, but that alternates with the new 406 MHz digital signal which can be tracked by the five COSPAS-SARSAT search and rescue satellites. To ensure the signal isn't accidentally triggered, the user has to pull out a set of long antennas on either side of the watch, and the breitling-emergency-121.5-mhz-rid-0.html. breitling superocean heritage 44 review emergency signals will alternately broadcast for up to 24 hours with the Emergency II's built-in rechargeable battery.

Made from titanium so that it's all but guaranteed to survive whatever emergency situation you find yourself in, the Emergency II will cost you just under £13,000. An expensive investment, for sure, but one you'll be glad you made if and when it saves your life one day. [ Breitling via Watches by SJX ]

The Breitling Emergency was originally design for pilots and aircrews. It is a watch with a built-in micro-transmitter broadcasting on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency and is designed to complement the distress signalling equipment of any aircraft. Following a crash the 'Emergency' will broadcast a signal on which rescuers can home in.

The transmitter is activated (for 48 hours) by unscrewing a protective cap and pulling the antenna out fully. Over flat terrain or calm seas, the transmitter signal has a range of about 160Km (assuming the search aircraft is flying at an altitude of 6000m).
