The Lokate Emergency GPS Watch isn’t for everyone. The £295.00 ($426) purchase price and £14.95 per month subscription sees to that. Those that need this type of thing will probably pay the cost without flinching. You see, it comes with a GPS receiver linked to the Internet for instant pin-point tracking on Microsoft Virtual Earth and built-in panic button. Cool, right? But when was the last time you went hiking in the backwoods and had 3G service? It’s probably best that this type thing is left to the urban crowd: city workers and anal parents.
