So it's officially the month of love. If you're in love it's all chocolates, kisses and hand-holding. If you're not in love it's all chocolates, chocolate kisses and cleaning out your inbox and TiVo. That is not to imply that all geeks are single! If you are in the market for a Valentine's day gift for the geek in your life, even if that geek is yourself, you are in luck. I am going to be sharing My Geeky Valentine Gift Ideas with you every day. My first pick for the geeky valentine in your life is the Special Ops Watch seen on Jack Bauer on Fox's cult classic 24.

The Special Ops Watch, $450, features a LED lighting system, tempered and scratch resistant crystal, carbon fiber dial, and ballistic nylon velcro band. Even if your Valentine isn't as rough and tough as Mr. Bauer, he or she will appreciate its strength and the fact that it's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and comes with an electro magnetic induction charger. It also has a special mode for map reading or distress signals which can be seen up to a mile away in the dark. Adventurers, city-dwellers and wanna-be agents will all drool over this one.
