TCL, a leading consumer electronics brands, launched the MOVETIME Family Watch MT43A, a watch designed to make the lives of seniors and elderly a little safer. The smartwatch for seniors provides hands-free two-way calling, automatic fall detection, heart rate monitoring and medication reminders designed to help seniors maintain their independence.
Many elderly stay alone and with situations like the recent lockdowns amid the pandemic and similar emergencies, getting help in time can be difficult. According to Pew Research, nearly 20 percent of seniors around the world live alone. The MOVETIME Family Watch MT43A is the perfect solution.
A Smartwatch for Seniors
This elderly smartwatch provides automatic fall detection, which notes when the wearer falls and sends an immediate alert (within 60 seconds) to assigned emergency contacts with the individual’s precise location. It also comes with an embedded heart rate monitor and sensor and will alert the wearer to irregular activity, such as an accelerated or slower than average heart rate.
It comes with an automatic mediation reminder and an activity alarm too. This helps the elderly take their medicines on time and pushes them to undertake some exercise in a timely fashion.
“With the announcement of the MOVETIME Family Watch MT43A, TCL is utilizing modern wearable technologies that can help seniors continue living independent lives while providing peace of mind for their families and caregivers,” said Sharon Xiao, GM of the Smart Connected Device Business Group at TCL Communication. “TCL is committed to leveraging its technical expertise for this generation, bringing unique offerings and features that are designed especially for them.”
Along with help in emergency situations, the MT43A smartwatch for seniors can call, send voice or text messages, share photos and emojis too in an instant. The smartwatch for elderly also offers smooth two-way calling at a simple hands-free request.
The MOVETIME Watch also has daily activity tracking and sleep monitoring to help the seniors track their activity and calories, while also measuring their sleep duration, cycle and efficiency. These tools provide them with insights that can help improve their lifestyle habits. Seniors can also leverage the watch’s medication or activity reminders, keeping them active while also making sure that they always take their pills on time.
The MT43A comes with a 41 x 48.5mm AMOLED touch display and optimized larger icons, watch face and graphics designed for seniors. The device is IP67 water and dust resistant. The MOVETIME Family Watch MT43A will be available in North America and Europe this fall for $272 and €229 EUR.
