Instead of having a wearable tracker around your wrist to monitor your fitness levels only you can gain access to, this safety wristband links to an online account where your health information is securely stored in the event of an emergency. The waterproof Safe Mate smart band is intended for swimmers and surfers in case they get into trouble. This allows lifeguards to act quicker if the wearer needs medical assistance.

The account the encrypted safety wristband is associated with not only has the wearer's name and medical records on file, it also keeps information like allergies, blood type emergency contact persons, existing conditions and insurance numbers. This makes it usable in a number of circumstances outside of the water as well.
