If you're worried about what your lifestyle may be doing to your health, then a new - albeit very morbid gadget - gadget claims to help.
A Swedish inventor has designed a watch that apparently calculates a person's life expectancy - and even counts down to the time they will die. 
Dubbed the 'death watch', Tikker was created by Fredrik Colting.

Would you wear one of these? I wouldn't . Somethings are best left a mystery.

Although this is a morbid subject, I think this is quite important. I am 80 now and I have savings that I am spending. My wife is only 70 so will probably live past the date of my death. I don't want to leave her short of money once my pension is no longer available. If I knew the date of my death, and she knew the date of hers, things would be so much simpler. I expect these gadgets will be expensive. Another thing to add to the equation.
