GPS/Medical alert pendant

1 comment

This device uses cell phone technology coupled with fall detection. It has no monthly monitoring fee (although it does have a $45/year fee to keep the cell service active). It also has a “wandering alert” option. It costs roughly $500 and may be a good alternative to an Apple Watch? Just passing the link for you to check it out.




Great, contribution Jim! Thanks for sharing.

  • This is the best Apple Watch alternative I have seen. Looks like a lot of great features and reasonably priced. You can watch the video below. Looks like they are having a deal right now to coincide with Amazon Prime day for $100 + $8.99/ month. If your loved one won't wear the apple watch you may look into this product. https://www.jiobit.com/product-select-99?utm_expid=.2A4rvRhcQ1KoJieCnY6jEg.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jiobit.com%2Fproduct-select-99
