TCL this week announced its MoveTime Family Watch (MT43A), a wearable device designed with senior citizens in mind.
Looking very much like an Apple Watch, it features a number of communication, safety, and health functions. It’s IP67 rated for dust and water resistance, has fall detection, and a built-in SOS button.
Should a wearer have a fall, or need to contact someone in an emergency situation, the watch can send a message to designated contacts with an exact location. Additionally, a “safe zone” can be created; an alert can be automatically triggered if the wearer ventures outside of the area.
Similar to other smart watches and activity trackers, the MoveTime Family Watch has a built-in pedometer, sleep tracking capabilities, and heart rate tracking. The watch can alert users if it detects unusually low or high heart rates.
Other features include two-way voice and texting, an OLED touch display, 600mAh battery (up to two days), and software that allows for extra large icons.
The MoveTime will be sold as a standalone watch that can be added to a cellular plan this fall. Priced $199, color options include dark grey and black.
