Whether at home, in the garden or heading down to the shops, help is on hand anywhere in the UK, 24/7.
An everyday watch that’s easy to use, discreet and lightweight. It connects a call directly to our care team at the push of a button.
Our experienced care team monitors calls 24/7, all year round and has monitored alarms for over 30 years.
We provide our stylish, comfortable watch and access to our care team for just £17.99 per month.
The Personal Alarm Watch helps older people be more active and more independant. Our device has unlimited range, working in the garden, down at the shops or even hiking all over the UK!
Traditional pendants only work within the home. They are tied to a base station, placed in one room in the house. We have worked with hundreds of older people to design the personal alarm they want. That means making sure their alarm never ties them to only being safe inside their home.

We make sure you get the help you need as quickly as possible.

When you live alone, it’s a comfort to feel you can get help when you need it so the watch is a big advantage.
A helpful product for those at risk of falls in the community. It was good to be a part of the development process from the beginning.
It's much more stylish and discreet than the white/orange, home only option. I like the fact It does not scream “gadget for the elderly”

97% of the UK's roads and 90% of all indoor locations are covered (Ofcom 2017). We encourage you to make test calls to our team in your first week and will happily refund you if your home is not covered.
Our experienced care team will assess the situation and determine the best course of action. This can be anything from a phone call through to contacting next of kin or an ambulance.

Around 2 hours to go from 0 to 100%.
No, we know people don’t want to have their privacy invaded! The location data is only sent when someone presses the SOS button to ask for help.
We have worked with older people for the last 6 years. Often we saw pendants hung on the back of doors or squirrelled away in a drawer. We found that people just didn't want to wear a big red button and be stuck at home in a ‘safe zone’. So we came up with the Personal Alarm Watch.
Resilience is an integral part of our service. You can rest assured that our 24/7 monitoring is operating as normal, you can get advice and technical support via email, phone or web chat and watches are posted fully set up, so you don't need someone to come in to install it. For more information, you can see a note from our co-founder here.
We’ve worked hard to make the watch as small, light and comfortable as possible. We use a specialist soft silicon strap so it’s also vegan!
The watch is small and lightweight. The main body is 55mmx32mmx15mm and it weighs just 49 grams.
We are channeling Henry Ford. You can have any colour that you like as long as it's black.
The watch sends an estimate of your location and makes a call to our monitoring team. They are on hand 24/7 to help and can contact next of kin or make arrangements to send someone to you.
You cannot ring other numbers directly. We've found that it's always best to have an experienced elderly care team that are available 24/7 to help, especially in emergencies. Family and friends can't always be ready or available in these situations like our team can. Family and friends should be listed as emergency contacts to be contacted by our staff if needed.
