Wi-Fi wristwatch for discreet poaching

Find hot spots to mooch from while no one is the wiser.

Thumbs Up

If you're one of those Wi-Fi moochers who's always looking for a discreet way to score a free connection, this gadget may be a perfect solution. Rather than having to boorishly whip out a obvious detector , you can pretend to be checking the time while surreptitiously looking for the nearest hot spot on a "Wi-Fi Detecting Watch."

This handy gadget promises to detect signals within a radius of more than 100 yards--an American-style football field--while featuring a full complement of wristwatch features such as a chronograph, alarm, calendar, and water resistance up to 328 feet. The best part for all concerned: It means you can finally throw that Wi-Fi detector shirt in the wash.
