Q Watch – Another Smart Watch for Senior Needs

December 10, 2015

Q Watch is a new smart watch product from the company Q Watch Limited. It represents an analogous to a senior medical alert system; however, it is a product of new generation with a larger set of features and smarter design.

The watch functions as a personal alarm system and is similar in a way to a smartphone – its operation is based on 3G technology. With its limitless monitoring range it can pick up and send a signal from any place, as opposed to medical alert systems that depend on the landline, for instance.

The watch also contains a phone, a computer and a camera, GPS as well as Blue Tooth and certain space of digital storage. The developers promise that within 3 seconds after pressing a button on the watch, users will be connected to a call center. The watch is also able to detect cases of falls and manage situations when seniors are unable to call or make any signal themselves.q-watch

  • It is designed by a doctor and for the seniors;

  • It has got a 600 mAh battery (the most powerful among smart watches);
  • Its operation system – Android 4.4;
