Meet the Kanega Watch
The first all-in-one, voice-controlled smart fall detection watch designed to keep you connected, independent, active, and safe. It goes everywhere you do, connects to a live emergency operator in seconds, includes auto fall detection and you never have to take it off to charge!
How the Kanega Watch Works in an Emergency
Press or Speak
Immediately connects to a US-based response operator 24/7/365 who knows your name, address, location, emergency contacts and other key info in your account.
Auto Fall Detection
Alerts the operator (even if you can’t press or speak) who will promptly reach out to your emergency contacts and can dispatch emergency services to your GPS location.
The Help You Need
Your response operator is trained to quickly determine and engage the appropriate support needed – ambulance, fire, police or simply contacting a family member or neighbor. Your stand-by assistance is always there.
“Best for fall detection and voice control”
“UnaliWear has taken medical alert smart watches to the next level by including several exclusive features such as voice-activation, smart fall detection, and Wi-Fi compatibility.”
“The Kanega Watch detected all of my simulated falls during testing... The watch also learns from past false alarms. And unlike almost all the other medical alert systems we tested, it doesn’t impose an extra fee for fall detection.”
“If fall detection is your number-one priority, they Kanega Watch’s round-the-clock monitoring and battery system make it our preferred choice.”
“The Kanega Watch does a great job of understanding seniors, their desires, and their needs so that they will be happy wearing the watch constantly. This increases the likelihood that users will utilize the watch and its features appropriately to keep themselves or their loved ones safe in case of emergencies.”
“UnaliWear streamlines protection by offering a watch that contains the entire medical alert system in itself — no base station unit, cell phone or pendant is required.”
“If you want a product that you can literally wear for 24/7, because you worry that falls happen at night and in the shower, and don’t want to take the alert off, then this is one of the few medical alerts that make that possible.”
“Can’t say enough about this watch and the customer service we have received. It has allowed my mother freedom to live alone without the constant worry of a fall going undetected. I would give them six stars if I could.”
Extending Independence With Dignity
What People are Saying
AMAZING customer service
The watch works amazingly well, and the response is almost instant. The best is the AMAZING customer service. It is prompt, polite, professional, and attentive. I wouldn’t have any other system, and I can wear it 24 hours a day.
Dedicated to the well-being of their customers
UnaliWear customer service is beyond excellent. The customer service I receive with my Kanega watch is the result of a company culture that is dedicated to the well-being of their customers.
I've loved it since I put it on
My daughter-in-law found the Kanega watch for me. I’ve loved it since I put it on. I have Cerebral Palsy, and I live alone. Falls have become more frequent in recent years. Now that I have the watch, my kids are far less worried. I love keeping it on night and day, even in the shower.
A real human checks in
It works about anywhere with both wifi and cellular — and Verizon service is included. A real human checks in as if by phone after a fall, a button press, or a voice command and false alarms are easy to dismiss. The company will also increase/decrease the sensitivity of any band on request.
A great alternative to an Apple Watch
A great alternative to an Apple Watch designed specifically for seniors. I have been very pleased with my watch so far. It is a reasonably priced way to ensure that someone left alone for many hours in the day is still connected to the outside world to maintain his safety.
Operated just like my cell phone
I unfortunately live in a dead cell zone on the coast and both my landline and cell signals are degraded for various reasons. The Kanega watch was the only product I found that operated just like my cell phone – using my WiFi signal and home and cell service when I am out and about.
How can any one in 2023 not get this?
Did a lot of research including the Apple Watch which, while appealing, had a number of drawbacks including the fact it connects directly to 911 not a service. Finally found the Kanega which had distinct advantages.
1) Does not come off, just snap in the recharged batteries and snap the others in the charger.
2) Connects to a service not 911…
3) Waterproof. How can any one in 2023 not get this?
Nice looking, easy to use, reliable for fall detection
After an exhaustive search for exactly the right thing for us, and something he would wear, we were happy to find the Kanega watch by UnaliWear… Nice looking, easy to use, reliable for fall detection, and comfortable to wear! And the customer service is amazing.
Greater confidence in the product
My mother has had one fall since having the watch. The watch detected the fall. Fortunately she was not seriously hurt and we didn’t have to get help but it brought her, and us greater confidence in the product.
I really love my Kanega Watch
I really love my Kanega Watch. I never have to take it off, which is really comforting, and I don’t have to look like an old person with an alert device around my neck.
My 93 year old father wandered into the garage at 2:30 am. one night. The lights went out and he fell. Thank goodness he was wearing his Kanega Watch. We immediately received a call that he had fallen.
I had tried another Medical Alert device, but it only worked within my property line and was expensive for what it did (or didn’t) do. I sent it back and spent the next several years looking into other devices.
Best medical device
I looked for a long time for a medical device that was not a necklace. This Kanega Watch works great and the best part is the staff. **************** is awesome, best I have seen anyway. They truly care about your situation and your experience.

The Kanega Watch Difference
UnaliWear’s patented RealFall™ technology is based on actual fall data from Kanega Watch wearers and gets smarter about each wearer’s personal movements over time— continuously improving fall detection accuracy and limiting/eliminating false alerts. No other medical alert system offers this real fall/related movement learning and continuous improvement technology. That’s why the Kanega watch is the best fall detection device.

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. Kanega is the best smart watch for seniors in 2023.
Never Take It Off To Charge
WiFi and Cellular Connectivity
Your Kanega Watch automatically provides clear connectivity directly to our 24/7 monitoring agents through your home WiFi and outside your home nationwide via Verizon’s 4G/5G cellular network*. Our wearers love the home WiFi connectivity feature, since many don’t have consistent cellular service throughout their home.
*Note you do not have to be a customer of Verizon for either WiFi or Cellular service to use your Kanega Watch. For additional questions on connectivity, please visit our FAQ page.
Wear the Kanega Watch in the shower and other splash-prone areas and during active sports where you sweat (Note: The Kanega Watch is not meant to be submerged).

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 potential fall. 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:
|24/7 Monitoring Staff?||Must Remove to Charge?||Fall Detection ?||Smartphone Required?||Voice Activated Help?||Water-Resistant?|
|Apple™ Watch||No||Yes, daily||Yes||No||No||Yes|
|MGMove||Yes||Yes, every other day||Only with an additional pendant||No||No||Yes|
|Lively™ Wearable 2||Yes||Yes, replace every 2-4 months||Only with an additional pendant||Yes||No||Yes|
|SOS Smartwatch||Yes||Yes, daily||Only with an additional pendant||No||No|| Yes|
The Kanega Watch, as an example, has fall detection technology based upon the collective experiences of real wearers. In addition, the watch includes patented artificial intelligence that learns each wearer’s specific natural movements, which uniquely decreases false fall alerts over time.
- 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 – therefore never leaving you unprotected. 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Fall detection watches are discreet and stylish. No one is aware that your watch is a fall detection device unless you tell them.
- 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.
