Finally! A decent looking watch that has a GPS tracker, fall detection and medical alert

Finally, a decent looking watch that has a GPS, fall detection and a medical alert or duress alarm. I stumbled on this website surfing for wearable devices. The Find-Me Tunstall Watch actually combines a “mobile phone, panic alert, fall detector and GPS tracker” all into one wearable decent looking device. This is according to their website. It looks really new at the moment and they don’t seem to have a web store or anything for it. I just hope that it will be publicly available soon and for an international market.
