TCL today announced the MoveTime Family Watch MT43A, a wrist-worn wearable device designed specifically for the needs of seniors, with a design similar to the Apple Watch. It includes an array of communication, health, and safety features. It has 4G and two-way voice and texting capability, including emoji and photos. It accepts voice commands for hands-free interaction. Health features include daily activity tracking with the built-in pedometer, sleep monitoring, medication reminders, and heart rate tracking that can alert the user to an unusually low or high heart rate. Other safety features include fall detection — which can send a message to designated emergency contacts with the wearer's precise location — and geo-fencing to alert when outside of a designated "safe zone". It also has a dedicated SOS button on the side. It's rated IP67 for dust and water resistance, and has an OELD touch display. TCL says its 600 mAh battery should provide two-day battery life. The software is proprietary and sports extra-large icons. The MoveTime is sold as a standalone device that can be added to a cellular plan like any other connected smartwatch. It's available in dark grey or black in the US starting this fall for $199. Earlier this year, Verizon launched a similar device, and Coolpad announced it is working on one as well.
