Why this product is in the Longevity Explorer Collection:

How the company describes the product: 

"Waterproof and able to travel with you anywhere you go, the Kanega watch is a self-contained watch and is not dependent on a connection to a home-based system or a smartphone, so you can get assistance at home or on the go in one simple, stylish watch.  No buttons to press – speak to it by its name, and it speaks to you. It’s that easy.  It looks like a traditional watch, not a medical device."

Discussion and Reviews


from FAYE BRIDGES (unverified) at March 22, 2021




from UnaliWear Customer Succcess Team (unverified) at April 16, 2021

The Customer Success Team at UnaliWear was very disappointed that Ms. Bridges did not have a good experience with our Kanega Watch. In fairness, it turned out that the WiFi credentials for her home were not inputted properly when setting up the watch - so her watch could literally not connect to her home WiFi. We offered to correct these credentials remotely and send this update to her watch, which would have corrected this issue in approximately 15 minutes, but Ms. Bridges declined that option and requested a return and full refund - which was her right. We complied with her request and wish her only the best in her search for a medical alert device that will best meet her needs.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
