    I have heard about newspaper articles talking about concerns of mobile
    phone radiation. When I spoke about this issue to a friend he said,
    "Just about everything produced radiation. Even your wristwatch." What
    I would like to know is how much radiation does a electronic wristwatch
    produce compared to an average mobile phone. Also, what kind of
    radiation is emitted from a wristwatch? Is it high frequency?

    I imagine he was talking about the radium dials that glow in the dark.
    You don't see them much any more and, at least in the normal sense,
    frequency is not a meaningful term to describe them.

    The latest I have heard, and that has been in the last couple of months,
    is that there is zero evidence of any damage from the phones, nor is there
    any accepted theory that would suggest that there is or ever was any real
    problem.

    What a bunch of nonsense. Turn on your FM radio and tune across the
    dial. See any towers? They're radiating 100,000 WATTS EACH! See any
    UHF TV stations? They're radiating up to 25,000,000 WATTS!

    Here, let me put your mind at rest. Do you have Google Earth and
    broadband? If not it's at:
    http://earth.google.com
    Boot it up and enter:

    Clarkwood Dr, Blasdell, NY

    Let Google Earth zoom into this street, which is just to the east of WWKB
    1520 Khz, the 50,000 watt former WKBW, the best rock radio station in
    Western NY. I grew up listening to it in the 60's. (Yeah, I'm OLD.)

    On the west end of Clarkwood Drive is Robin Ln. Take a right and go
    north to the 4th house on the left. It has a black roof with some kind
    of white roofed garage out back. From their backyard, look straight out
    away from the house. See those three towers all in a line....directly in
    the line of your field of view about 350' away from you? Those three
    towers are the DIRECTIONAL AM antenna array of WWKB, which is, at the
    moment you're standing there, pouring 50,000 watts of RF IN YOUR
    DIRECTION! The array's main output lobe is straight at this house, whose
    living room measures 477 feet, not yards or meters, from the business end
    of one of the most powerful radio stations in the USA! Feel the heat on
    your face? GEEZ, DON'T TOUCH THAT CHAIN LINK FENCE! YOU MIGHT GET
    BURNED, which I'd think is a real danger in this yard!

    The RF signal strength from this massive AM blowtorch across this whole
    neighborhood is at LEAST 10 to 50 VOLTS, not millivolts, per meter! The
    whole neighborhood is taking a tremendous RF wholloping from WWKB-AM. AM
    radio stations maximum radiation field is RIGHT ON GROUND LEVEL!

    And, that's not all!......

    Notice the big Red and White painted tower next to the big transmitter
    building? THAT towers supports the 100,000 watt WWKB-FM antenna array,
    spraying RF out near 100 Mhz across the whole area. This signal misses
    Robin Ln because FM and TV stations maximum radiation is from way high
    up....they are line-of-sight stations. That big AM is NOT!

    Now, there are those who will point out your cellphone is much higher in
    frequency and more dangerous at higher frequencies. That would be true,
    except your cellphone is HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES LESS RF POWER
    than WWKB-AM is pouring into Robin Ln.

    RF is really dangerous. It really is. The burn scars on my hand prove
    it. BUt NOT FROM YOUR CELLPHONE or WRISTWATCH or WIFI ROUTER or CB or TV
    set....(c;

    An old friend of mine, Linwood Sikes, who spent his life working on
    transmitters that were REALLY dangerous back in the beginning of radio,
    died a few years back of OLD AGE! He was 94! He did NOT glow in the
    dark, have extra limbs growing out, have deformed children (His son runs
    Sikes Radio, our Motorola 2-way Radio dealer since Dad retired and is
    captain of the local USCG Auxiliary.)....or suffer at all from intensive
    RF exposure at work and at his 2KW ham radio station until the day he
    died. I know LOTS of old radio engineers like Linwood and the only thing
    they lack is money and young girls to love....(c;

    Lots of the scare tactics about cellular came from cellular, itself. The
    systems, which used 3 watt bagphones and mobiles, were filled to capacity
    and cellular wanted more users spending more money in intensely populated
    areas. The solution was to invent digital communications systems where
    24 people could share a single channel. Now, if we can pry those
    powerful bagphones out of their hands and talk them into this tiny
    pocketphone which only has a .15 watt (150 milliwatt) tiny transmitter in
    it, we can erect lots and lots of little cells with lots and lots of more
    channels than the old system ever had....at the expense of RANGE in areas
    we choose not to erect enough towers in, like countrysides out of the
    cities. People resisted. The little phones sucked because they came out
    with the phones BEFORE they erected the towers and they had poor coverage
    service. So, what do we do when we need to talk them fast into accepting
    something distasteful?.....

    We create PANIC! We run airplanes into buildings, then set off
    demolition charges to bring the buildings down in seconds killing
    thousands and blame really stupid people who can't fly! We go spread the
    word that CELLULAR PHONES ARE BURNING THE BRAINS OUT OF YOUR CHILDREN!
    They'll drop those big bagphones outside because of this new FEAR FACTOR!
    They'll be glad to have a tiny transmitter toyphone that only goes a
    mile! Unfortunately, cellular kind of overdid on the panic campaign....
    (c; Now, they're afraid of ALL cellphones and RF sources....which is:

    NONSENSE.....er, ah, just like horology!

    The easy answer is this: how big is the battery and how long
    does it last? Energy has to come from somewhere. It's a rough
    answer, ignoring what kind of radiation (heat good, gamma rays
    bad...) but good enough to answer the cellphone vs. watch question.
    A watch simply cannot put out a significant amount of *any* kind
    of radiation and have that small battery last that long.

    Most likely he's mis-remembering/mis-stating the old high school
    experiments with radium dial watches that glowed in the dark.

    This is the only watch that I've heard of that emits anything, and its
    supposed to be beneficial not harmful. Its called a Teslar watch. I
    don't know much about it except thats its supposed to strengthen the
    body's own magnetic field. You can read more at their website.
