BellPal Safety Watch
- Automatic fall alarm
- Can notify an unlimited number of people
- Six month battery life
BellPal is a Swedish-designed safety watch with an alarm button and intelligent fall detectors that notify your family if you fall over. The elegant watch looks just like a regular watch, but below the clock face, intelligent technology is working alongside the user-friendly app to create a secure and easy-to-use alarm system.
The circuit board uses energy-smart Bluetooth technology and advanced motion sensors. This smart technology ensures that you can get help quickly if you fall. The alarm is triggered automatically when you fall, and can also be activated manually by holding down the left button for three seconds or by using the app.
Connect the safety watch to your smartphone via Bluetooth to create a network of followers in the app. Your followers will be notified if you fall or activate the alarm manually. Your followers are immediately shown where the alarm was activated on a map. You can cancel the alarm via the watch or the app within the first 60 seconds of it being activated, irrespective of whether it was activated automatically or manually. The app enables you to have an unlimited number of followers, who will see your location (when the alarm is activated) and your watch's battery status, and who can call using the speed-dial button.
To gain access to all the functions, you need to download the app BellPal and sign up for the Friends & Family subscription plan on the BellPal website. The subscription costs SEK 89 per month and does not require a commitment period. Once you have signed up for the subscription and have connected the watch to your smartphone, you are ready to start inviting followers. The subscription also includes a new battery that is automatically posted to you once your battery starts running low. It is easiest to get the battery changed at a watchmaker's.
The Swedish company BellPal was founded in 2015 and is based in Stockholm. BellPal combines new technology with user-friendliness in an elegant Swedish design. The watch is very easy to use. The intelligent algorithms recognise a falling movement and can distinguish it from many other everyday arm movements. The algorithms have been developed based on medical data and falling tests.
The watch uses your phone's GPS, which means that it works all over the world, as long as your phone is connected to 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi.
The BellPal safety watch is made of high-quality materials. The case around the clock face is made of stainless steel (316L) and the clock face is protected by mineral glass. The strap is made of real leather. The clockwork is a quartz clockwork from Miyota, the same clockwork which is used in watches by Citizen, Festina, Jacques Leman and others.
