Many times, when faced with personal threat, it becomes almost impossible to take the smartphone out from your pocket or handbag, unlock it, and send out an emergency message. In such situations, the spotNsave wristband could make all the difference in broadcasting that crucial SMS with your location data to loved ones.
This wearable technology – comprising a rechargeable Bluetooth module housed within a soft silicon wristband – connects to the free spotNsave app that you will need to install on your phone. Like it is with all SOS apps, you can key in up to five emergency contacts.
The app sends out a message to your contacts along with your real-time location at regular intervals. And once your ‘guardians’ have your co-ordinates , the app leads them to you with turn-by-turn driving directions on Google Maps
