AUCKLAND, New Zealand & SYDNEY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jupl uses the Samsung Gear S3 watch in conjunction with its own cloud-based monitoring and analytics system. This, in collaboration with Spark and Cisco Jasper, ensures customers can stay connected wherever they are in Australia and New Zealand.
Alan Brannigan, CEO and Jupl co-founder said, “We partnered with Samsung to integrate the Gear S3 smartwatch into our cloud-based health and safety software platform to provide services such as wearer location tracking and two-way voice communication with family and friends, care managers or employers who can respond if the wearer is in distress.”
The Jupl Safety Watch allows a wearer to nominate a carer (family member, friend, or employer) to receive emergency alerts should they become distressed or feel vulnerable. It is a fully mobile device with its own connectivity to the mobile network.
“We have established a successful business to business market with our ANZ channel partners, and are repeatedly asked by individuals where they can purchase a Jupl Safety Watch directly for their loved ones that live independently and/or employees that work alone and often remotely. So, in response to this, we built a wearable self-monitoring consumer product which can be purchased online,” continued Brannigan.
Jupl co-founder Sir Ray Avery said, “Having our own stand-alone connected smartwatch (enabled by the latest e-SIM technology) means Jupl Safety Watch wearers and carers can receive real time alerts throughout New Zealand and Australia where there is mobile network coverage.”
“Existing landline based personal emergency response services are subject to power and telephone line outages and these are becoming more common with extreme weather conditions. The Jupl Safety Watch overcomes these issues giving our customers and their caregivers peace of mind. I’m very proud of the technology the Jupl team have developed,” said Sir Ray.
