By now, everybody knows about the old Life Alert commercial where the poor elderly woman falls and the shouts, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” As people grow older and are living longer on their own, they sometimes need a little added security…as does their family. With the advent of wearables, specifically smartwatches, are becoming more popular, it only makes sense that a new smartwatch/safety watch for this very purpose was not far behind. Live!y, is “Personal Emergency Response – Reimagined.”
What is so different about Live!y is that it is the safety watch for both the independent older adults and their family members and caregivers. The wearer receives the peace of mind, knowing that they have Live!y with them to watch over them and the family receives peace of mind being about to ‘follow’ you throughout the day on their PC or on their mobile app – which you can find by clicking on the Play Store link at the bottom of this page. Live!y uses a main hub and in-home passive activity sensors that can recognize pattern changes for the users food and drink consumption, medication and other daily events. These changes are sent as a notification by email, text and mobile app.
The 24/7 emergency response is just a push-button away and the design of the system is very easy to use should you fall or if there is another emergency. Once the button is pushed, a 24/7 operator will attempt to reach you by phone to confirm that you need emergency help. You can have up to three emergency contacts called before anybody is dispatched and they will even stay on the phone with you until help arrives.
The Live!y safety watch will even act as a step counter, keeping track of your activity through the day. There are also two assorted pillboxes that will keep track of medications and also provide intelligent medication reminders. The passive activity sensors can be attached to a refrigerator, for instance, to let you know how many times it has been opened and shut. One can be put on the front door to let the system know if you are home or away.
The colorful Live!y safety watch gives the wearer a large 1.97-inch watch face, 24/7 One-Push Help Button, Waterproof safety from taking a shower, washing hands, etc., provides Medical Reminders, Daily Activity Sharing, Step Counting and Family Alerts. You receive protection within a 1500 feet radius of the hub – no internet is necessary. It uses a long lasting, replaceable battery, so no charging is required. Sometime in the Spring 2015, you will be able to use your smartphone to pair with your Live!y smartwatch when you are away from home.
