Safety wearables come in a variety of shapes and sizes. If you are planning on taking a vacation this summer, it may be wise to invest in a safety wearable that is not only easy to pack but gives that extra bit of reassurance that there is some way to call for help. This is especially true if you are traveling alone.
The following wearables offer three different options that range from practical to fashionable:
- The React Sidekick: This device can be affixed like a keychain and is touted as the “world’s smallest personal panic button.” It sends alerts to your personalized network and appears to work in conjunction with your phone and their free app. Currently priced at $79.99.
- SAFER Smart Jewelry by Leaf: This necklace sends alerts to your network including your location after pressing the necklace twice. Also can assist in taking selfies. Currently priced at $30.00.
- V.ARLT: This button can be attached to your wrist or on a pendant. It can send alerts of your location and a personalized help message to three contacts. There is an optional fall detection alert. It is also waterproof and has a battery life of a year. Currently priced at $39.99.
I would check the battery life, what initiates an alert to be sent, how it sends alerts, the types of alerts sent, and compare pricing of various devices before purchasing anything, or purchase different devices for various needs. There are many unique features to each device so make sure you are getting the options that seem to be the most beneficial in your case.
