It’s possible that the SmartWatch saved our daughters life last week. On only the 3rd night wearing the watch, we woke to an alert at 3:40am. Never before did we think Kendall had seizures in her sleep, but we walked in on a grand mal seizure*. This seizure was so prolonged that an ambulance and emergency room visit was necessary.
If we were never alerted of the seizure, if Kendall never got her medication to attempt to stop the seizure, if we didnt know to call for medical help, our 7 year old could have died. If you need a ‘poster child’ for this product, we volunteer!

“We only had the watch set up for 2 days and I was already at work 45 minutes away when I received an alert at 5:30AM. The 1st notification was “Abnormal Motion”, the 2nd notification was pinpointing where my son was and the 3rd notification connected our cell phones together. Because of that connection I could tell my son was having a seizure*, by his breathing and the noise he makes just before he stops breathing.
I talked him through the 1st seizure while calling a friend that stays with him during the day while I am at work. Then the second alert came in at 5:34AM just as my friend was getting to his room and found him having another seizure. He was going into the fetal position that he does just before he goes into a grand mal, stops breathing and becomes unresponsive. She was able to give him medication to stop the clusters of seizures.
His seizures must be stopped before he hits the point of grand mal or one day my son will not return to us as the brain damage starts two minutes after he stops breathing. He already has had this happen once, causing the left side of his brain to be slower than it was before.
Seizures during sleep are the worst due to no one knows it is happening, but now that we have the SmartWatch I will sleep better at night knowing that the watch will notify me. It is truly a god send and worth every penny.”

“I love this watch so far. (My 5 year old) has been wearing the SmartWatch™ while she is at home and every night (her seizures are more active in her sleep). The SmartWatch alerted us to 2 seizures* while she was sleeping. She began wearing the watch at daycare during nap time only; now she wears it all the time. It definitely gives us peace of mind and makes her teachers (at daycare) feel less nervous about missing a sign. She even has used the help button when she felt a seizure coming on.

“As parents of a child, now young adult, with a seizure disorder, we found the SmartWatch offered us an amazing sense of peace of mind. During the 60-day SmartWatch test, our daughter experienced two tonic-clonic seizures*. SmartWatch detected them and sent us text messages within a few seconds. What a relief to know the SmartWatch would alert us.
Because we could trust in the communication of the device, our daughter experienced a type of independence that she had not had before. Our daughter enjoyed the freedom SmartWatch gave her and she loved the fact we could check on her less, giving her the privacy teenage girls like.
We are both amazed and thankful for the SmartWatch. It gave us respite after nearly 13 years of wrestling with the unknown. With the SmartWatch, we can now achieve a balance between independence and safety for our daughter.
Thank you for this opportunity, we cannot express our gratitude to all that have participated in the development of this product- it truly is an emotional moment testing this device and even more emotional returning it. Please let us know when they will be available for purchase. It can’t be soon enough!”

As our son was heading off to college for the first time, we were all apprehensive of the “what if’s.” The SmartWatch changed everything! From our son’s increase in independence and confidence to our peace of mind. We couldn’t be more thankful.

“My 14 year old son has an active lifestyle and suffers from tonic-clonic seizures. Similar to most 14 year olds, he wants his privacy and is bothered when we have to check on him so often – much more often than he would like. This is difficult and adds pressure
to an already stressful situation.
While doing normal housework or while my son sleeps, I rest easier knowing I have the SmartWatch monitoring him and I will be notified if a seizure starts*. We are looking forward to utilizing the SmartWatch when it is released. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your test.“

“I am so glad to have tested the SmartWatch. It gave me a sense of freedom, independence, and peace-of-mind of that I had lost. With the SmartWatch, once my arm started to twitch* my husband would be notified. It was there when I couldn’t be there for myself. If I couldn’t make that call for help, SmartWatch would make it for me. The text was sent and if I didn’t cancel the alert, SmartWatch would do the next step and call my
husband. After answering the call, he could then hear me on the other side of the phone and knew if I needed help or not. He could do this all from where ever he was. Knowing I had the SmartWatch on eased his mind. He was able to work freely, my kids had better lives and we had a better family life. I didn’t need that babysitter to take care of me anymore. I had the help right at the tip of my fingers. It was a breath of fresh air. SmartWatch is AMAZING!”
