Selecting a GPS Locator Watch for Seniors

When an Alzheimer’s, dementia or Autistic patient wanders off, it can be a frightening experience for everyone involved. Fortunately, The Alzheimer’s Store carries three GPS locator watch models to track friends and loved ones around-the-clock. But, how do you know which one is right for you? Selecting the ideal GPS tracking watch for elderly patients with memory loss is based on their individual needs. Since there are differences between each type of monitoring watch, it’s important to know which elderly GPS tracker will work best to ensure the safety and security of your loved ones.

GPS Locator Watch Tracks in Real Time

The sleek, lightweight, water-resistant MX-LOCare™ GPS Watch is perfect for patients with Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss who are at risk of wandering. For caregivers and those who live alone, this GPS tracking watch for elderly individuals not only tracks the wearer’s whereabouts, but gives the extra assurance that they can communicate in real-time with two-way voice communication. The wearer can speak directly with a caregiver or operator with the push of a button, making this an invaluable device for individuals in an emergency situation.

It is the only watch The Alzheimer’s Store offers with worldwide coverage, so it’s ideal for snowbirds/travelers. This device uses cellular and WiFi technology with an integrated app (iPhone and Android) that connects directly with watch to provide the wearer’s exact location. It also offers a “Tether Zone” function, notifying the monitor when the user enters or exits a central location, such as home. With all of these incredible features, the MX-LOCare™ GPS Watch gives both the wearer and the caregiver more independence.

This GPS locator watch is highly durable and ideal for someone who prefers a larger sized piece. Setup and tracking is easy using the free iOS and Android Apps or from your laptop or desktop computer. Like the MX-LOCare™ GPS Watch, it also features multiple “geo-fences” with personalized schedules that sends an alert when an individual exits or enters a user-defined region, and an SOS button automatically that sends an alert when pressed, which then initiates a two-way voice call with simultaneous tracking.

The Freedom Watch allows the user to set movable safe zones in or outdoors using a portable receiver. If these safe zones are crossed, it sets off both an audible and visual alarm on this receiver. The individual can be quickly located with a Smartphone or computer. When an event occurs, family, friends and caregivers can be alerted by text, phone or email.
