WHAT? SOS Mobile Watch
WHO? New Australian company mCareWatch, founded by brothers Peter Apostolopoulos and Paul Apostolis. The SOS Mobile Watch looks, feels – and tells the time – just like an ordinary watch, but is also an elderly monitoring and SOS alarm system with an emergency/medical alert call button, phone and GPS tracking device.
The watch works by connecting its wearer with up to three carers via their smartphones or Android mobile app. The wearer’s location can be tracked via Google maps when using a smartphone and via GPS technology with Android Carer’s mobile app. In an emergency, wearers can hit the SOS button and the watch automatically calls the connected carers.
PRICE: $399 outright or $39 per month (plus $69 set up costs).
