Safe, Stylish, and Smart: Bay Alarm Medical’s New Medical Alert Watch
July 20, 2021
While virtually everyone wants to live to “be” old, hardly anyone wants to “look” old. That’s why so many seniors are reluctant to wear a home medical alert necklace or wristband. But, what if the medical alert looks just like a regular wristwatch?
Bay Alarm Medical’s SOS Smartwatch takes the traditional medical life alert system a giant step forward. You’re not tied to a base station or a cell phone. It has its own 4G LTE sim card that supports clear, reliable communication and location data.
Medical Alert Watch for Seniors on the Go
The SOS medical alert smartwatch is a sleek alternative to a traditional medical alert device. Equipped with a built-in step tracker, it also helps you stay safe while staying fit.
Our SOS Smartwatch is equipped with GPS. When you push the SOS button, the watch sends your location data to our monitoring center to help our operators dispatch first responders to your location. Use the watch to call for help quickly and discretely in the event of medical emergency or situation where you feel unsafe. Remember: medical alerts are also useful in non-medical emergencies.
In addition to a step counter, the SOS Smartwatch also has a setting that allows you to set goals and track your progress. It’s a great addition for seniors who love travel and the outdoors. That added layer of protection can encourage more sedentary seniors to reap the benefits of an active lifestyle.
More outdoor activities can help improve overall physical and mental health. A University of Minnesota study found that access to nature is especially beneficial for healthy aging in seniors and helps to improve quality of life:
“Accessibility to everyday green and blue spaces encourages seniors to simply get out the door. This in turn motivates them to be active physically, spiritually and socially, which can offset chronic illness, disability and isolation.”
How the SOS Medical Alert Watch Works
The SOS Smartwatch is a self-contained wearable that doesn’t require a cell phone. You can use it right out of the box.
- Press the SOS button on the watch.
- Our operators answer your call and identify your location using the watch’s GPS.
- Operators notify friends/family members you have listed as emergency contacts and/or dispatch first responders to your location.
The watch is water resistant and easy to charge, with a battery life of 18 to 24 hours. Just place it on the included charging station when you go to bed, and it’s ready to go the next morning.
