SEAM, a company that makes personal safety wearables, has announced that its Lotus by SEAM personal safety wearable device is now available for purchase at its website (www.seamtechnic.com).
The SEAM personal safety platform, consisting of the Lotus, the app and cloud-based storage and streaming service, keeps people connected and safe by sharing contextual data, including GPS location, images and full streaming audio with the user’s chosen personal network in real-time. The connected Lotus device pairs with the free iOS or Android app for smarter personal safety, keeping people safer than a GPS tracker or panic button.
The small wearable device can be worn as a necklace, bracelet or attachment, and according to the company, accessories will be available in the coming month.
The Lotus is the only personal safety device on the market that enables two-way, hands-free audio calls directly from the device, as well as featuring Voice Assistant access. Users can perform standard Siri or Google Assistant voice-controlled features such as sending text messages, setting reminders, or control their SEAM app.
“Personal safety is a critical need in today’s world. But existing single feature devices don’t solve the problem as they don’t provide any contextual data for someone to help in a meaningful way,” said Drew Henson, founder and CEO, SEAM Technic. “The Lotus device relies on community and love, not fear, to empower people to live their lives and know that someone always has their back.”
The wearable device works as a remote control for the SEAM app, which allows users to record and share experiences with images, full streaming audio and precise GPS location with up to 5 contacts. The information can then be saved and kept private for personal use, or shared with a chosen contact. In case of an emergency, users can make a hands-free emergency phone call to a guardian or emergency services (this feature is available on Android only).
The device retails at $129.95. It comes with a 1.7-ounce mobile charging case that can keep the Lotus powered for up to 42 hours. Also, every purchase includes a 3-month subscription to SEAMplus where data can be saved for up to 3 months.
A portion of all Lotus sales will go to help the Canadian Women’s Foundation, a national non-profit organization that empowers women and girls to move out of poverty, out of violence, and into confidence and leadership.
