    Hi,

    Anyone know of a wearable that has a seizure Alert function (Empatica- Embrace) that can notify by text GPS coordinates to more than one receiver..... without a monthly subscription..

    The wearable would be Bluetooth connected to a mobile.... or if able it's own sim.  .
    The wearable would need gyro & heartbeat sensors preferably.
    Thanks

    That's a really good idea! I'm not familiar with one, but it's a phenomenal concept. The issue is: without a monthly subscription, how would the company pay the ongoing expenses of server space, bandwidth and program updates? They probably want to eat too, you know...

    If the app was paid for, but the text was via Bluetooth connected mobile or a SIM in the wearable, then there wouldn't need to be any server side communications..  just direct wearable sensors & app that notify via text.. with the current ones it's £250 min for a watch & £20 / month... out of the reach of most with disabilities like epilepsy... it already costs a fortune to have a normal bed alarm for night time... decent ones over £1k.. but not wearable..
