Emergency help gadget for students and more: V.ALRT

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 20, 2014

An emergency help gadget for students and more.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  V.ALRT is the name of a little gadget that can be worn on the wrist or as a clip on or on a key chain that is designed to summon help or notify loved ones with a simple button push.   It connects to mobile phones using low power Bluetooth.   It’s from VSN Mobil where VP Matt Gordon says…

“First and foremost the real selling point of this device is there are no monthly service fees.  The device is available on our Web site as well as Amazon for 59.99 and that is it.  The other advantage to this is there’s no charging involved.  It has a, uses a standard what is called a CR2032 battery, a standard watch battery that lasts up to a year.  So it’s a very, very easy to set up, very, very low maintenance.  You pay it, you walk off and set it up and you’re ready to go.”
