G2i to Offer Limmex Watch as the Company's First Personal Emergency Device
Palo Alto, Calif. (September 8, 2014) - G2i, Inc. announced today that it will be introducing
security device and is offered as a monthly service independent of the G2i's smart home system
and interactive services. The watch adds a new dimension to G2i's security offerings, and
enriches the customer's peace of mind both in and out of the home.
The Emergency Watch is developed in Switzerland and is being manufactured in the heart of the
Swiss watch industry. While it looks like a sleek, sophisticated wristwatch, the device hides inside
of it a completely integrated mobile phone. With the push of a button the watch calls up family
members and/or friends according to a stored list of numbers. The watch keeps calling the
numbers in sequential order until the call is answered. Once the call is picked up, the wearer can
talk to the person on the other end via a 2-way voice speaker system.
In European markets, the watch has proven to be an easy and reliable personal security solution
for athletes, lone workers, outdoorsmen, children, single travelers, people with health problems,
as well as for elderly people and people living alone. G2i is excited to be among the first North
American service providers to offer the watch in the United States.
"This is an exciting addition to G2i because unlike other MPERS devices, this will work anywhere,
looks great, and allows the wearer to contact only friends or family members, if so desired. Many
people, when in need of assistance, are reluctant to notify a "call center stranger." Of course, a
monitored station can also be called, if preferred," said G2i Vice President of Sales and
Marketing, Jeff Zemanek.
The high level of innovation behind the Limmex Watch creates clear advantages and customer
benefits compared to other more conventional personal emergency systems. Foremost, the
watch is compelling in its simplicity: a single push of the button to request assistance. It needs
no installation and can be used anywhere, indoors as well as outdoors. Thanks to its elegant
design the emergency watch will not be recognized as an emergency device. This is important
for safety reasons and also because it allows the user to feel safe in any situation without
compromising on lifestyle or quality of life.
"The Limmex watch represents a total game changer for the personal emergency response
industry," said Paul Green, Limmex's Executive Vice President of the Americas. "Our Beautiful,
State-of-the-art Swiss made timepiece offers complete protection and 2-way voice
communication, essentially eliminating all stigmas associated with this segment. We are excited
about our launch and partnership with G2i."
The Emergency Watch will be available in November 2014. For more information, visit booth
