The lack of snow in certain regions isn't going to stop people from travelling up north to enjoy some winter sports, so a Norwegian company has devised a way to keep winter sports enthusiasts safe and prepared with the Safe Mate GPS device.

Even for the most experienced skiers and hikers, getting lost or stranded due to unpredictable weather conditions is inevitable. The Safe Mate GPS device allows users to engage in a two-way conversation through a mobile company as well as emitting the user's current location.

An added function, which is extremely useful for all people but especially for women and the elderly, is an alarm system that alerts others that they are in danger, making travelling alone and at night a little safer.
