Al­ter­na­tive smart­watches

Imperial Valley Press - - HEALTH -

• Nur­tureWatch ($155 pre­paid or $23 per month plus $70 for the watch) lets a care­giver track a loved one’s where­abouts through GPS, but it can also make two-way calls, mon­i­tor heart rate and de­tect falls. The watch also has a red SOS distress but­ton in the event of an emer­gency. Un­like the Ap­ple Watch, it works with both iPhone and An­droid smart­phones. • Lo­cateWatch ($16 per month for a min­i­mum of 12 months) uses GPS to track loved ones, along with in­te­grated cel­lu­lar for mak­ing calls and built-in Wi-Fi to ac­cess the in­ter­net when in a wire­less net­work. It also in­cludes an SOS but­ton to call a care­giver or fam­ily mem­ber in the event of trou­ble or if the watch wearer leaves a spec­i­fied area. If users pay an ex­tra $10 per month, the SOS but­ton can also call a 24/7 emer­gency mon­i­tor­ing cen­ter. • Lo­cateTracke­r ($13 per month for a min­i­mum of 12 months) is a small and track­able de­vice to keep in a pocket or purse, at­tached to a key­chain or worn as a pen­dant.
