CES: Low-cost moto watch protects elderly

The moto watch 100 claims to be the most affordable smartwatch with fall detection and emergency alerts.

The moto watch 100 from Motorola is claimed to be the most affordable smartwatch featuring fall detection technology that monitors and protects vulnerable family members. Its features include fall-detection, emergency alerts, heart rate monitoring, SPO2 oxygen saturation alerts, and daily updates, so users can have tabs kept on them by vulnerable family members. It also tracks health and fitness to measure, compare, and share fitness goals, connecting users with communities and friends.

In the U.S. alone, 31-million people have a parent over the age of 65 living at home alone with no partner or assistance. Children with senior citizen parents living alone have reason to be concerned about their parents’ well-being and long-term health: senior falls are the number one cause of at-home injury and heart disease is the number one cause of at-home death.

Chronic sleep conditions, such as sleep apnea, increase the risk of heart failure by 140%; with isolation and loneliness leading to a 68% increased risk of hospitalisation and 50% increased risk of dementia.

“The family sharing software we are releasing on our moto watch 100 enables users to protect, connect, and communicate with loved ones to monitor them on a daily basis,” said Craig Smith, CEO of eBuyNow, strategic brand partner of Motorola, and responsible for the moto 100. “This long term strategic partnership we are announcing with BellPal brings new and critical features to moto watch users, including fall detection, heart rate monitoring, and SPo2 monitoring for family members that need some extra care.”

Equipped with the new Moto OS, the moto watch 100 lets users understand their biorhythms, with a streamlined experience focused on health and routine. Features include water resistance of 5ATM (atmospheric pressure a device can handle), a battery-boosting OS, and an intuitive interface, at an entry-level price point.

Health and wellness tracking features include a heart rate monitor, sleep tracking, step counting, weight tracking, blood oxygen levels, and 28 different sport modes; along with a long battery-life up to two weeks of full-time use from a 60-minute charge, and multiple lifestyle features, goal settings, and smart notifications. The watch measures, compares, and shares personal fitness and health goals.

The watch retains a sleek and stylish design, with an aluminum case, stylish silicone band, and circular LCD display.
