Alternative to Road ID. Crosstrain ID

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I received my Watch ID in the mail yesterday. Unfortunately I cannot share a picture because my info is on it

Summary:

Well made with a nice metal plate that is laser engraved with my info.
It's made over here.
The owner very communicative via email (he informed me when to expect it to arrive, to let him know if it doesn't and asked where I heard of them)

Dogtags. You can buy some with plastic rims for $3.30 on Amazon. They serve the exact same purpose and assuming you get hit you know for sure that the EMTs will examine your chest. It makes it a lot cheaper/easier to replace too.

I have dog tags in my military I Love Me treasure chest. The toilet chain irritates my skin. Anything sturdier that might not break before slicing my head off I don't want to mess with.

+1. Got mine for $10 shipped from Mydogtags.com (no affiliation). On one I have my name and a cool motto and on the other, 2 emergency contacts and abbreviations for:
-Date of Birth (DOB 'xx)
-No known allergies (NKA),
-No known drug allergies (NKDA),
-No known medical history (NO MED HX)

So the important dogtag has this on it:

JOHN 123-123-1234
JANE 234-234-2345
DOB '__
NKA, NKDA
NO MED HX

5 lines of simple information enough to tell emergency services who to call and that to not worry as much about whether or not I'm going to have a fatal reaction to some drug or treatment.
I do also carry my ID but I think they are more likely to find the e-contacts on a dogtag than on some card that might get displaced in my wallet.

Also, if I store my house key that I take on bike rides so I can let myself back in on my dog tags as I plan to, I am more likely to wear that than some annoying bracelet/ankle thing. YMMV

If you look further on the web site, they have one that goes on shoes (yes, I know, it increases rotating weight!)
