The world of wearables is growing so quickly we can barely keep up. There’s an accessory to track everything — our sleeping habits, our fitness, and, of course, our calls and our emails. But you may not know that there are also wearables that could save your life. We’re loving these three devices that use modern technology to keep you safe, while also keeping you totally stylish.
1. Cuff: Cuff is a little gadget that fits into a cuff or a necklace. It notifies you of important calls and tracks your fitness, but we especially love it for its street smarts. If you’re ever in trouble, you can press your Cuff and your friends and family will get an emergency alert with not only your coordinates, but audio of what’s happening on the scene. Whoa. Talk about a personal alert system.
2. Siren: This cocktail ring does more than make a fashion statement. If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, you can twist your Siren ring and it does just that… make a super loud, alarming siren noise. This not only alerts people around you that you’re in trouble, but it can help provide a a distraction and some unwanted attention to an attacker. Siren can be heard as far as 50 feet away. It’s a simple solution that could make a really big impact if you’re ever in trouble.
3. Artemis: The Artemis technology takes the alert capabilities a step further. When you’re in a dangerous situation, you tap Artemis three times, and the device instantly contacts a private security service and your loved ones to let them know you’re in danger. It tells them where you are, in addition to dispatching police. Even better, it vibrates to signify that help is on the way and starts a live audio feed going directly to the security operator. It even comes in a clip model, which can be easily attached to the inside of a pants pocket, or even the center of your bra.
Do you have a favorite wearable you use to feel safe? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
