A smart-watch for elders independent of Wi-Fi network

We have seen many smartwatches made by major IT giants and many startups. Now here is another smartwatch made by a crowdfunded startup, Lively.

The senior monitoring sensor system operates independently of a Wi-Fi network. It relies on the Lively Hub, with its own cellular network.

The watch gives medicine reminders, or alerts when medicine has been missed. It has an emergency button contacts a dispatcher and alerts family members. Fitness tracking features, such as steps taken, are included, and can be viewed by the wearer or family. The wearable is waterproof and can be worn in the shower.
