An alarm can be triggered in 3 ways. Through the app, manually from the watch or automatically if the fall algorithm in the watch detects a fall.
Our fall detection algorithm is primarily trained to detect falls where you fall and lay still afterwards, assuming this is the situation where you might not be able to activate the manual alarm from the watch. It is also trained specifically on fall patterns for people with an age over 70.
The watch itself works anywhere, as long as the watch is connected to your smartphone and the phone has internet access. However, our 24/7 emergency response center currently only operates in the USA and Canada.
After an alarm is triggered you have 30 seconds to cancel it before it is sent to the Emergency Response Center and your Contacts. You do this via the app in your smartphone or by holding down the push button on the watch for 10 seconds.
You can start the alarm yourself at any time by pressing the alarm button on the watch. Then the exact same thing happens as with an automatic alarm.
They get a notification from the app on their phone.
You can manually trigger an alarm on your watch by pressing and holding the bottom button for three seconds. The alarm will also be automatically activated if you fall and lay still for more than 10 seconds after the fall. For a more detailed description of how to trigger an alarm, read our instruction page on how to trigger an alarm.
No, the GPS location that you see in the app is from your phone.
You can download the app from Google Play.
As a Watch User, you need to purchase a Safety+ subscription to be able to log into the app, or, as a Contact, you need to be invited by the Watch User.
Currently the app is only available for Android phones, but it will be available for iPhone within the near future.
No, you purchase and sign up for the Safety+ subscription here on the Safety+ website.
Yes, by pressing and holding the button in the middle of the screen until it becomes fully red.
The watch must be paired with the phone in order for a fall alarm to be sent to the Emergency Response Center and your Contacts. For example, if the distance becomes too large, the watch loses contact with the phone. Should this happen, we will automatically send a notification to your smartphone that the contact has been lost.
If you delete the app your fall alarms will no longer be sent to your Contacts or the Emergency Response Center since that is done by the app. But don’t worry, you can just download the app and then pair the watch to the phone according to the instructions in the user manual and/or in the app and you can use the service again. Your Contacts and alarm history will be saved.
No, only the Watch User can invite Contacts.
