Wearsafe Tag provides a discreet, personal safety device for runners, cyclists, college students and children with special needs.
Three times a week, I rise with the sun and go for a run. It’s not always easy, but I make it a priority for me. I find that running calms my nerves, keeps me focused and increases my energy levels. I run for me because in order to be the best that I can be, I have to take care of myself too.
I wish I could say it’s easy to keep this standing commitment with myself, but that’s not 100% true. You see, I have to go into stealth ninja mode to even get out the door. Just one tiny creak of the floorboards can send my adorable Cavalier into a barking frenzy, which then wakes up my two kids. And once they’re up, there’s no turning back.
So, I quietly put on my running clothes in the living room – on the area rug so I don’t squeak the floor boards. Then, I tip toe over to the front door and quickly put my sneakers on. Then, I stand over the kitchen sink and cram my contacts in my eyes. On a good morning, I can be out the door in 10 minutes. (If I remember to brush my teeth, it’s 15.)
Then, I’m out the door and into the fresh air.
All of this is fantastic and even though I love my “me time,” I also have to make sure that I’m being safe. I understand and respect that I am running in the wee hours of the morning and I like my husband to know that I am being safe. This means that one days when I need a little extra oomph in my step, I only wear one ear bud in my ear. But most days, I wear none at all. It also means that I run with a flashing light snapped to the back of my shorts. And, I carry my phone.
My thought process is that the ear buds will enable me to hear passerbys, the light will allow cars to see me, and my phone will allow me to make a phone call if I need to. Unfortunately, in a distressing event, it can be difficult to seek help and access your phone.This is why Wearsafe is the wearable safety app every family should know about.
This is why Wearsafe is the wearable safety app every family should know about.
Wearsafe is a battery powered personal safety tag that can be used by runners, cyclists, college students, and even children with special needs.
This perfectly simple personal safety device enables users to be in control of their own safety in case trouble arises. By using the power of your phone to alert friends and family, the Wearsafe Tag sends them audio from the scene and starts a live chat room where they can coordinate a response or call 911.
This discreet wearable device keeps you (or your loved ones) one step ahead of any distressing situation all while keeping your phone, which is your lifeline, out of sight. This means that the person causing the distressing situation will never know that you called for help until help is on its way.
The Wearsafe Tag comes with many helpful features that help keep you and your loved ones safe and sound.
Wearsafe Tag Features:
- Compatible with both iPhones and Androids
- The device is FREE – with your $5.00 monthly subscription to the app.
- GPS information – recognizes if you are traveling or moving or stationary
- Audio from the scene – a push of a button sends an audio file of 60 seconds before the ‘event’ so your family and safety personnel can hear exactly what is going on.
- Group chat – all of those in your selected network are in group chat to create a virtual situation room to connect as a team assess the situation and address how to help the person in distress.
Overall, I was very impressed by the simplicity of the design and the peace of mind that the Wearsafe Tag can bring to loved ones. With all of the safety perks that come with the Wearsafe device, I think it’s the wearable safety app that every family should know about – and try. Try it free
