This is an interesting battery: http://www.fdk.com/battery/lithium_e/pdf/data_sheet/coin_p_type/CR1.3N_spec-sheet.pdf.
But it’s too high.
With this battery: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/BR-1225/P183-ND/31915the enclosure could be 1/2″ in diameter and all the components could sit on top.
This buzzer claims almost 90dB at 4kHz.http://www.aliexpress.com/item/RUIDA-ELECTRONC-BUZZER-SMD-3V-5x5x2-5mm-PIEZO-TRANSDUCER/754733076.html
The TI BLE SOC is 6mm square. The new Invensense IMU is 3mm square. We need a 1206 capacitor and space for the antenna. Maybe the total size could be about 1/2″ by 1/4″. How would connection be made for programming? It would need pads and a special fixture to fit into.
This beeper only draws 3mA but the rated voltage is 9V (78db) so at 3V I’ll bet it barely squeaks: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/SMD-120025F-09041TJ-SMD-piezo-disc/623852162.html. And it’s really big. I think it’s better to go with a low voltage, electromagnetic beeper (shown in the drawing, 5mm x 5mm) and just give it really short bursts of pulses. With a short pulse duration, short burst, and long duty cycle (perhaps once every three seconds) the power consumption may be acceptable.

As I look at the capacity of these coin cells and the power requirements of the components, I don’t see how it could work for more than a few months. The IMU draws 6.4uA with the accel running at 1Hz and the CPU needs 0.5uA with all clocks off just for RAM retention, and the sleep timer needs 0.6uA with the internal RC oscillator. If the crystal oscillator is running it needs 60uA-90uA. Whatever “BOD” is it takes more than 200uA.
Hopefully the IMU has a deep sleep function to get its power consumption way down.
At least things look good for making AA-battery-operated anchors to put around the house. They could potentially last years with a lithium AA battery (more than 3000 mAh).
This paper has a table that lists the power consumption for various medical devices and how long they typically last using a CR1025, which is the battery I have been considering.
I also attached the paper.
If the battery is 10mm diameter the enclosure has two be at least another 1mm thick so the diameter will be at least 12mm. The height will have to be at least 7mm.
