What makes this watch unique is the SOS safety feature.
In trouble on a solo workout? Just hold down the button on your Bia for 3-seconds. We’ll send a text message and a map of your exact location to your loved ones. We’ll update your location every minute until you cancel the alert. All you need is a 2G cellular connection – anywhere in the world – no subscription required. Bia has you covered.
As far as I know, this is the only GPS watch with a safety feature like this. Not only will it help you out when you come across a creeper, it is a useful feature in the event of an injury or if you just get lost!
The Bia GPS Sport Watch with SOS Alert is $279 and it comes in a variety of colors.
I have not actually tried this product – it is something that I stumbled across that struck me as a very good idea!
Since this post is related to safety, you may also want to consider pepper spray – only $11.95 at Running Warehouse.
