The OV-Watch fertility monitor detects the chemical surge of chloride ions on the skin in order to predict ovulation. It was developed by Pheromone Sciences (now called Sernova Corporation), and is marketed by HealthWatchSystems of Florida. It is a small wristwatch-like device, containing an interactive microprocessor combined with a biochemical sensor allowing it to produce data that predicts the fertility status of the user (not-fertile, fertile or ovulating). The computed results can then be viewed on the LCD screen of the device and/or the user can be alerted via optional audio signals.
