New Assure 4G Mobile SOS Personal Alarm Watch Saves Lives

Elder falling is a major concern for any family that has elderly loved ones living on their own, and especially for independent elders who can function on their own but might end up needing immediate help in an emergency.

Luckily, that doesn’t have to be a problem, anymore. Thanks to advances in technology, and WatchOver's dedication to making independent living not only possible but easy, you and your loved ones can rest easy.

Our latest product is the Assure 4G SOS Personal Alarm Watch, and it has some exciting, lifesaving, features that we’re proud to show off, now.

Let’s get started.

Five Key Features that Keep You Safe

The Assure 4G SOS Personal Alarm Watch is our 3rd generation watch phone. Not only have we been doing this for a long time, but this is a culmination of all our efforts to create the finest, most reliable, and most effective product money can buy. 

There are five main features that make Assure 4G stand out from the competition. 

Fall Alert with Automatic Calling:

If you or your elderly family member takes a tumble that knocks them unconscious, they won’t be able to do something such as dial a phone number or even hit a simple auto-call button. That’s why the Assure 4G comes with automatic fall detection and calling. 

If you fall and lose consciousness or the ability to manipulate objects, the Assure 4G will automatically place the call for you; even in the worst-case scenario, help is on the way. 

Video Calling and 2-Way Calling:

In the unfortunate event that the worst happens, and you seriously hurt yourself after a fall, the Assure 4G provides video calls and 2-way calling with your loved ones. You’re not stuck on the phone with customer support; you get to speak directly to the people you love and are comfortable with. This can make all the difference in a serious situation. 

GPS Location

Just letting someone know that you’ve fallen isn’t enough. If they can’t get to you quickly, it might be too late. 

That’s why we’ve incorporated the latest in GPS location technology to pinpoint your exact location at all times. If you’re wearing the Assure 4G, help will know exactly where to find you. 

This feature can also increase independence in elders who suffer from other conditions and might get lost or wander away from safe areas. 

1-Button Design:

The one-button design of the Assure 4G makes it exceptionally easy to use day-to-day. There are no complicated tech gizmos or silly operating requirements to worry about; even if you’re not good with tech. 

Quality of Life Features:

On top of its emergency features, the Assure 4G also functions like a standard smartwatch. You can set medical alerts to remind you to take medications or schedule doctor appointments, track your health, and have a multitude of other exciting features that will help you enjoy independent living safely. 

Try the New Assure 4G for Independent Living

Independent living can be scary. Thousands of elders fall and suffer serious injuries every year. The new Assure 4G was crafted with the purpose of preventing that. 

At WatchOvers, our approach is that we’re family caring for family. We put the best we have to offer into this SOS personal alarm watch just like we want for our own loved ones.

 If you’re living independently, or you have an elderly relative who does, or someone who needs support, try the Assure 4G Personal Alarm watch to keep everyone healthy, safe, and happy.  You will find full details at  


The Elderly and Falling: Staying Safe with Independent Living

The Elderly and Falling: Staying Safe with Independent Living

The Elderly and Falling: Staying Safe with Independent Living

It’s an unfortunate fact that, while people are enjoying longer and more fruitful lives overall, there are serious risks posed to elderly people due to their bodies continuously degrading over time. One of the biggest risks facing elderly individuals across the UK and Ireland is the risk of falling.

This year, one in three people over the age of 65 will sustain a potentially life-threatening fall. For those over the age of 80, the number is more staggering, and the falls are potentially more deadly.

We want to go over the fall risk posed to seniors, why it’s such a big deal to those living independently, and a solution to this problem that can allow seniors to maintain their independence safely.

The Risks of Falling and the Need for Immediate Help

Fall situations are extremely common, and they can create devastating situations for the elderly.

Unlike falling as a child, or when someone is in their prime, seniors face an increased chance of serious fractures, more substantial blood loss, concussions, or internal bleeding. This is largely caused by a lack of bone density, more fragile skin, and general degradation of the bodily integrity they had when they were young.

Those injuries are all extremely serious, and if they’re left unchecked, they can be deadly without the person even knowing that the situation is as bad as it is.

As such, it's important for seniors to get help as soon as possible when a fall occurs. Even if they feel as if their injuries are minor and they just need a bit of time to shake them off. A simple headache can be a concussion with life-threatening consequences, large patches of bruising might be internal bleeding that doesn't become obvious until it's too late, and a sore limb or bone might be a fracture that needs to be checked and wrapped immediately to prevent the development of worse issues.

How Living Alone can Make Falls Worse

Everyone wants to live independently, and as long as that’s a safe option, it should be something that seniors are allowed to do. However, independent living can make falls much worse; there’s no one around to help when a senior falls and can’t get themselves up, and it might be days before anyone outside of the home realises something is wrong. By then, the senior might succumb to wounds that could have easily been treated with immediate care.

How SOS Devices Help Seniors Stay Safe

A lot of the issues we mentioned above can be minimized with planning, a good sense of communication between family members and neighbours, and of course, having preemptive measures set up such as bathroom railings, staircase aids, and their home free of trip hazards. Knowing those key points is crucial for independent living. However, the risk of falling will always be present for seniors.

There is a solution; SOS devices can get help as soon as it’s required.

An SOS device is something that an elderly person can wear on their body, and when they fall, the device can be used to immediately contact help; whether the individual is able to stand up and reach a phone or not. Once the SOS is activated in an elderly falling situation, a service is contacted to dispatch help; how that help is received varies depending on the system.

An SOS system is important, because having something such as an SOS watch, means that elderly individuals can maintain independent living without worrying about a fall leaving them helpless until someone happens to stumble upon them. Help can be reached immediately, and the many life-threatening risks associated with elderly falling are minimized.

Monitoring smoke alarms and other devices for your elderly relative

Monitoring smoke alarms and other devices for your elderly relative

For anyone with elderly relatives who need support, it is common to worry about them. The quality of life for elderly individuals can become quite strained when they begin to lose day-to-day independence. This is why we often rely upon technology to help keep them safe when we are not there to check-up on them.

One of the most common forms of tech used to check in on senior citizens includes the use of smoke alarms. This can also include carbon monoxide alarms and other monitors that help to keep their homes safe. However, with traditional alarms you need to be present to know they are going off. If an elderly relative or individual cannot act to the alarms trigger, or does not notice it, they could be put in needless danger. However, with wireless smoke and carbon monoxide alarms from WatchOvers, that can be avoided.

Our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms are designed to be managed from afar using a simple mobile application. It can be monitored by more than one family member/carer and means that if the alarm(s) go off then each watcher will be given an alert. These alerts are by SMS, phone call and by push notification.

These alarms can cover everything from smoke to carbon monoxide to water leaks. Now, if a tap is left on by mistake, or an unused bathroom has a leak, a family member can be easily alerted.

This is essential as elderly family members could have various reasons for missing an alarm, including:

  • Hearing problems that limits their ability to notice the alarm going off
  • Physical disabilities that could make attending to the alarm, or the issue, hard/impossible
  • Medical trips, meaning they could be in hospital for a period of time leaving their home vacant
  • Social trips, such as going away with friends or family, leaving their home unattended
  • A large house that contains rooms with alarms that are not commonly used

Elderly alarms can offer much needed peace of mind

Designed to be extremely easy to install and set up, even for those without tech expertise, our alarm systems simplify a confusing process.

You can also build up and develop your own plans and systems as their needs grow. This includes the addition of SOS panic buttons, support SOS wristbands, and many other devices and features that you could feel are helpful. In short, WatchOvers makes sure that you do not have to worry about a friend or family member who is in their golden years. You can have all of the supports and alerts that you need to make sure that if something does go wrong you can swoop in to offer a simple and easy solution.

This might even include home security features like IP cameras for two-way conversations, video doorbells so they do not have to answer the door themselves, and much more. Now, as someone who is helping a senior relative get on with their life, you can handle their requirements as much as they need you to. This gives you peace of mind that they are safe, and allows your elderly family member to simply focus on the matters that they can deal with themselves.

Do not allow yourself to rely upon outdated technology that cannot provide the watchful vigilance the elderly need. With our excellent range of independent living products, you can make checking your parent’s wellbeing and adapting to modern Smart, Safe Living so much easier.
