Athena Safety Wearable
Review date: 11/01/2018
We live in a world where women aren't safe. Women fear violence too often walking home, going for a jog, heading out on a date, living. This little wearable is a direct result of the unfortunate world women live in. Put this tiny, little low-energy Bluetooth device on while you are out and if you feel unsafe you can push the button to send an alert to a group of pre-selected contacts. Or push the button longer to let out an audible alarm to let people around you know you are in trouble. The app can share your location with your selected contacts. A good idea, and a sad world that we need this.
