The Kanega Watch Difference

Fall Detection

The Kanega Watch contains patented fall detection technology. If the watch thinks you have fallen, it discreetly alerts you with buzzes and displays an emergency message. If you do not respond/disable the alert, it automatically connects you to an emergency response operator. Further, the watch’s fall detection continuously improves as it learns each wearer’s natural movements, and the sensitivity can be customized, as well.

No other fall detection device on the market matches the Kanega Watch’s unique features and capabilities.

Voice Controlled

While you can get help simply pressing the watch’s crown/stem button, the Kanega Watch is also uniquely voice activated. Want to speak with a monitoring agent – simply ask your watch to connect you. It’s that easy.

Never Take It Off To Charge

Unlike most smart watches, our patented battery system means you are protected 24/7. You never have to take your watch off to charge it, reducing the chances that you can’t get help when needed. The Kanega Watch will automatically remind you when to change your batteries.

WiFi and Cellular Connectivity

Your Kanega Watch provides clear connectivity to monitoring agents in your home – via your WiFi – and nationwide via Verizon’s cellular network (included in your watch plan).1 Our wearers love the home WiFi connectivity (unique in the industry) since many don’t have consistent cellular service throughout their home.

Medication Reminders

The Kanega Watch can remind you when to take your medication with a tap on the wrist, displayed text or by voice – – it’s up to you. Use your Kanega Watch Wearer Portal to add, edit or delete medications and reminder times.

Fall Detection Watch FAQS

A fall detection watch is both a wristwatch as well as a medical alert device that will automatically detect a fall and alert a monitoring agency to seek help on your behalf if needed. These watches use a variety of accelerometers, detection sensors, and algorithms to sense a sudden change in velocity. If the wearer should fall, the monitoring agency is alerted and will either reach out to someone on the wearer’s care list or call emergency responders. Fall detection technology is quite advanced and can even sense small falls from a chair, a bathtub, or similar low-height places.

While no fall detection offering is 100% accurate in detecting all falls, this technology does provide a significant and, at times, critical layer of protection for serious and potentially debilitating falls.
Strictly speaking, there are only a couple of actual fall detection watches on the market: The Kanega Watch and the Apple Watch (which is a smartwatch equipped with fall detection technology and not a dedicated mobile medical alert device). Many mobile medical alert brands do offer a wristband option, but they only offer fall detection through an additional lanyard or pendant that must be worn around the neck. We have included a few of these brands in the following overview along with their key features:

The Kanega Watch, as an example, has fall detection technology based upon the collective experiences of real wearers. In addition, the watch includes artificial intelligence that learns each wearer’s specific natural movements, which uniquely decreases false fall alerts over time.
The Kanega Watch! Why So?

  • It is simple to use.
  • No need to wear a pendant
  • It has an ultra-long life quick swap battery.  No need to take it off to charge.
  • No smartphone or phone plan required.
  • Button and voice-activated.
  • Is connected to a dedicated monitoring center that can offer both emergency (eg: ambulance) and stand-by (eg: call my neighbor) assistance when a fall happens.
  • Communicates via WiFi in your home and cellular outside your home – for enhanced communication clarity and pinpoint GPS.
  • Built-in Medication reminder functionality.
The best fall detection watch never requires you to take it off to charge – leaving you unprotected during that time. That is the Kanega Watch. The watch comes with four rechargeable batteries – two that fit easily in the watch band and two that stay in the provided custom charger. At home, the Kanega Watch batteries will last up to 36 hours or longer before having to swap out (because WiFi connectivity drains power slower than cellular).
Fall detection watches do offer some significant advantages over fall detection pendants. Here are some key reasons why a fall detection watch may be the better choice for you or your loved one:

  1. With pendants, there is always a risk of the wearer taking it off and forgetting to put it back on. For example, wearers might take the pendant off to sleep comfortably and get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom – forgetting to put the necklace on. If a fall occurs at this time, it would then most likely go undetected. Unlike pendants, watch wearers tend to keep them on 24/7, which ensures that the device will be in place to detect the fall.
  2. Pendants are often limited to in-home use or require a smartphone for mobile use. This is problematic, as many seniors don’t own a smartphone. Fortunately, fall detection watches work no matter where the user goes, and some don’t require a smartphone or app.
  3. Some users find the pendant devices unattractive. No one wants to walk around wearing a heavy, clunky, or unattractive medical device. Fall detection watches, by contrast, come in sleek, attractive designs.
  4. In addition to the aesthetic challenges, pendants devices can be stigmatizing.Many seniors don’t want to telegraph the fact to others that they are worried about falling or at a high risk of injury.
  5. Fall detection watches are discreet and stylish. No one is aware that your watch is a fall detection device unless you tell them.
  6. Many pendants require you to press a button for help, but the wearer may not be able to do so if they’ve fallen and are badly injured. Luckily, watches like the Kanega Watch are voice-activated and don’t require the user to push a button for assistance.
Most fall detection watches are water-resistant to some degree. Some of the basic models are mildly water-resistant, while premium models, like the Kanega Watch, are waterproof with ratings of IP67 or higher. Watches with high IP waterproof ratings can be worn safely while washing hands or showering – making it less likely that seniors will remove them and be unprotected.
The Kanega Watch has both built-in fall detection and a medication reminder technology.
