Electrical pickup via electrodes on under side of belt,
triggers a transistor amp which is biased for class C
operation [normally zero battery drain], which pulses
some kind of LC ckt that rings at about 2-5Khz for a
couple of msec. Wrist watch uses a simple inductive
tuned ckt to pick up the signal from the belt.
