Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
About the Kanega Watch
We know who you are and can find you in an emergency.
In an emergency situation, the cell phone requires the user to initiate the call, which may be difficult or impossible in a medical emergency. The 911 operator will have no information about the caller, their location, or emergency contact information. Even if the caller can communicate, valuable time can be wasted while the 911 operator gathers needed information.
In contrast, the Kanega Watch can detect a fall and automatically connect the wearer to the monitoring center. The wearer can also initiate a call to the monitoring center with a button press or a spoken command. Whether initiated automatically by the watch or by the wearer, the Kanega Watch connects to an operator who has the wearer's contact information and location at hand, and if needed, can quickly summon help.
While some smart watches have safety features such as fall detection, the watches must be removed to charge. Most people charge their watches at night, when many falls happen. A trip to the bathroom with the smart watch on the charger provides no protection.
The Kanega watch has a patented quick-swap battery system, which means you never have to take it off to charge.
The Kanega Watch provides fall detection, emergency response, and medication reminders in a stylish watch design—avoiding the perceived stigma of traditional emergency buttons and pendants.
