Samsung's Gear watches will help with senior care and employee safety
Samsung is taking on the world of work via three new integrations with its Gear smartwatches:
1. SoloProtect uses the Samsung Gear S3 to keep tabs on people who work alone, like real estate agents and home healthcare workers. SoloProtect provides emergency alerts, geo-location and status checks to businesses that employ lone workers in higher-risk environments
2. Reemo integrates with the Gear S3 and S2 to monitor the health of seniors in care facilities. Reemo's platform tracks activity level, heart rate and sleep quality of seniors in care centers
3. Ability Wearables, along with Samsung's Gear Fit 2 and S3 devices, helps keep track of people who work long shifts, like truck drivers, construction employees and healthcare workers. People at risk for falling asleep on the job can wear a Gear smartwatch that connects through Samsung's GearUP platform to connect with Ability Wearables' real-time health intelligence systems, letting employers both predict and react to employee fatigue on the job.
