H2S-Detecting Watch for Oil & Gas Workers


Hydrogen sulfide kills. Here's a watch that warns you if it's around.

Swiss watch company North Eagles has set that same basic sensor inside an otherwise normal-looking timepiece. If the watch detects a certain concentration of H2S, above the traces you’d find in most environments, it vibrates, blinks, and sounds a 96db alarm. If it’s linked to the worker’s phone, the alert gets filed with geolocation information, so the company can log the specific location and concentration of H2S and a response team can find the wearer.
