18 Personal Safety Wearables

From Ink-Squirting Purse Attachments to Customizable Smart buttons

— June 15, 2017 — Tech
One of the greatest advantages of living in today's digital age are the developments to personal well-being like these personal safety wearables.

Being able to thwart danger is especially important as individuals become easier targets through their social media accounts. While many of these products are targeted at active women -- like the HelpyHero -- there is also a huge market for easy-to-use safety wearables for children and seniors.

Many of these devices work to be as compact as possible or fit as many features in them as possible -- like the app-activated tracking tags. Lastly, personal safety wearables tend to be purchased by loved ones rather than the wearer themselves. Many of these products will target sales to loved ones and include safety features that notify selected contacts instead of a designated helpline.
