Don't leave home without it. That is a catch-phrase for something I can't quite remember, but it is definitely applicable to triathletes and personal identification. The biggest danger to personal health is riding on the road. Besided accidents, even medical problems arise during your swim, bike and run training. It is of the utmost importance to wear some sort of personal identification along with any important health issues or allergic reactions just in case something happens to you while training.
Up until now, most wearable personal identification devices have been of the 'static' kind - that is your name, phone number and other limited information is printed on a dog-tag, bracelet or ankle-band. This year we are comparing two new products that have added a digital 'flavor' to the standard ID.
This review is not a review where we are trying to proclaim 'King' to one of these products. Instead we will try to disseminate the differences among the products and leave it up to the user to choose which product is appropriate for them given their unique circumstances.

Summary: An engraved bracelet with limited health/bio information but with an online accessible and updatable Emergency Response Profile.
