Contrary to unpopular belief, the world is not always a fuzzy and super safe place. Bad things happen to good people all of the time. That’s why things like pizza and ice cream exist, for us to drown our sorrows should the need arise. In all seriousness, that’s why doctors and also helper bees exist. However, how can you sure that help will always be at hand, should something untoward happen to threaten to happen to you as you, say, walk home alone at night through the seedy underbelly of town? You have to get hip to wearable technology, that’s how!
Introducing the Acticheck Assure personal alert armband system thingamajig. This bad boy, or girl, is essentially a smartband with a focus on keeping you safe, secure and in good health. It can send messages of alert to nearby authorities, friends or family should you want it to. It can also be set to do the same thing should certain conditions be met, like you not checking in within an allotted amount of time. This is the perfect smartband to give the elderly person in your life, so you can keep an eye on them, in the caring way and not the creepy way.
The Acticheck Assure isn’t available yet, so you’ll have to actively check your web browser and then assuredly stride over to their Kickstarter page in order to get in on the ground floor. There is a wide variety of pre-order options available, with a base unit starting at around $125.
