In addition to telling the time, the mCareWatch SOS Mobile Watch is an elderly monitoring and SOS alarm system. It has an emergency/medical alert call button, phone and GPS tracking device.

The watch is linked to the Optus mobile digital network and connects its wearer with up to three carers via their smartphone. Wearers hit the SOS button and the watch automatically calls the connected carers.

Options include $399 outright or $39 per month plus $69 set up charges, and includes the watch, charger, emergency calls, SMS and data charges.
