A necklace that sends location information is a practical way to alert family and friends of your whereabouts in an emergency. It has an embedded button on the back of the necklace that, when pressed, sends a link to your GPS location to up to five people. The necklace pairs with your phone through Bluetooth.

The necklace can be worn as a bracelet or as a necklace. When attached to a smartphone via Bluetooth, it connects with an emergency app and sends the wearer’s location to designated emergency contacts. The app also enables the wearer to call 911 if needed. The device can also connect with landline phones for voice notifications.
The jewelry can also act as a reminder for the user to keep their phone near them. It comes with a rechargeable 10mAh battery and a magnetic charging interface. It also has a built-in camera to snap a photo if the wearer needs help. It can support both Android and iOS operating systems. The device requires Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect.
This device is not only effective in an emergency situation, but it can also be helpful if you’re away from home. If you’re a college student, for example, you might be out late at night and don’t want to be found by an intruder. During this time, a necklace with a panic button can alert family and friends of your whereabouts.
