Most elderly people find it difficult to use smartphones that currently run the world. The people working at Unaliwear have recognized this and have come with a product called “The Kanega Watch”. This is a smartwatch which is voice-controlled device designed to keep you independent, active and safe.
It is voice-controlled for ease of use. It does not need to be connected to any smartphone or have a constant connection with the internet, so you can get assistance at home or on the go in one simple, stylish watch. And it’s also waterproof!
It looks like a traditional watch, not a medical device.
It’s voice activated assistance will connect you directly to an operator who will confirm emergency assistance should be dispatched to your location. If you activate help and don’t respond immediately they will call your emergency contacts first or dispatch local medical assistance immediately, depending on the preferences you have set.
The Kanega watch can be set up to call emergency contacts and/or dispatch emergency services if it detects that you may be in trouble. UnaliWear relies on a number of factors such as fall detection and long periods of immobility during the day combined with a lack of response from you if it asks if you need help.
The Kanega watch understands where you are, where you’ve been, and some of your habits. This means it can help you find your way home if you become lost or get help for you if you appear to be immobile and unresponsive.
These are the things that make this stand-out than most of the smartwatches in the market. If you want one you can pre-order the device now on their official website and it’s going to release later this year to the general public.
