Most smartwatch manufacturers are focusing on smartphone connectivity and health, but very few are aiming towards the senior citizen market. Guidercare M Carewatch is made with the elderly and the sick in mind, providing all the support they may need.
In a sense, this smartwatch is a full-fledged device, with phone calling capabilities and a data connection. It only features a 2G connectivity, but that is all the device really needs.
The Guidercare M Carewatch’s main purpose is to capture information about the body and keeping seniors connected in case of emergency. You can get connected to a 24-hour call center with just one button. We see this in action at the Computex showfloor and works rather well for what it does. It also uses GPS and WiFi to pinpoint the location of the user.
The device can also make it very easy to monitor your clients. The system can be set up directly with hospital systems, giving them all the information and enabling them to make a diagnosis quickly. It’s also possible to set up push notifications for unusual glucose levels, heart beat, movement and more.
How much does it cost to keep your loved ones safe with the Guidercare M Carewatch? It’s sold as a monthly subscription. It’s launching in select markets (including Australia) for $49 Australian dollars on a 2-year contract. That price includes the 24-hour call center fee, as well as voice and data.
