About UnaliWear
 
Focus groups have named our Kanega watch a wearable “OnStar for People” because we provide discreet support for falls, medication reminders, and a guard against wandering in a classically-styled watch featuring an easy-to-use speech interface rather than buttons.
 
Thanks to our patented battery system in the band, you never have to take your watch off to charge – and unlike Apple watch or Samsung Gear, we don’t require a smart phone (because it’s built in). We combine cellular, Wi-Fi, GPS, BLE (for hearing aids and telemedicine devices), an accelerometer for automatic fall detection, and continuous speech to provide an active medical alert that works anywhere, along with data-driven artificial intelligence that learns the wearer’s lifestyle (think “NEST for people”) to provide predictive, pre-emptive support.
 
Our naming derives from Cherokee: “Unalii” is “friend”, and “Kanega” is “speak”, so we are the friend that speaks to you.
 
OnStar is a registered trademark of OnStar, LLC. UnaliWear has no affiliation with OnStar.
