Meet the Kanega Watch
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.
"If fall detection is your number-one priority, the Kanega Watch’s round-the-clock monitoring and battery system make it our preferred choice."

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.
Never Take It Off To Charge
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). Our wearers love the home WiFi connectivity (unique in the industry) since many don’t have consistent cellular service throughout their home.
Wear the Kanega Watch in the shower and other splash-prone areas and during active sports where you sweat.

Fall Detection Watch FAQS

- 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.
- 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.
