What are the differences between a medical alert pendant and watch?  

As our parents get older we want to know they’re safe where ever they are and that in the case of an emergency – a fall or accident – someone would know they need help.

For many the answer is a medical alert device to give peace of mind to our parents and the entire family – but how do you choose?

If you’re looking for a medical alert device for an aging parent or elderly loved one, it can be confusing to figure out which one will work best in the situation – both for them and us.

Kim and Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents talk with Richard Hirsch of Unaliwear, makers of the Kanega Watch, the only medical alert watch with built-in auto fall detection (all other fall detection medical alert systems require you to wear a neck pendant). Plus the Kanega Watch doesn’t have to be taken off to charge, which we think is a real benefit for those that want to stay protected at night.

They discuss the differences between medical alert pendants and watches, what devices do in case of a fall, things to consider when deciding – how they’re charged, monitoring services, internet connection, compliance with wearing and how the devices function and get help. They also discuss what makes the Kanega Watch different from an Apple or Samsung watch.
