If you want to protect the life of your loved ones and ensure their safety outside of the home, a location-based safety watch is a good solution. For people who are prone to get lost, for example people with memory disorders, a safety watch is a vital device. The safety watch can be used both to locate a lost person and to make two-way voice calls.
About location-based safety watches
A GPS safety watch is a wristwatch and a care phone in one, that allows the user to locate their position within a few meters at best. The watch has a powerful loudspeaker and microphone for calling the Alarm Receiving Center. The watch also provides telephone functions that allow the user to call relatives. The watch is especially suitable for active elderly or for those who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
If you are worried about your loved one, you can use your smart device to check the whereabouts of the person by calling the safety watch or using GPS tracking system.
Your loved one can also contact you, or the on-call Alarm Receiving Center (ARC) with the alarm function.
