Wearable safety devices that can send for help

(Source: WPMI) There are wearable safety devices out there that can help if something goes terribly wrong.

If you've found yourself in a dangerous situation would you have a dependable way to communicate? What about your children? There are wearable safety devices out there that can help if something goes terribly wrong.

We've seen most wearable devices, like a Fitbit or Google Glasses. Now companies are transforming those devices and include safety features.

At first glance the Tinitell looks like a watch but it's really a cell phone and GPS locator. It will cost you about $149, and about $10 a month to operate. But it's a great tool.

Just press the middle button and say the name of the person you want to call, and your watch dials the number. The GPS tracker shows where you are.

"All you have to do, is you press this middle button and then it says a name," said 8-year-old Juliana Maambo.

"I call my parents or my babysitter to say I'm there," added 11-year-old Margaret Maambo.

Then there's the Stiletto. The charms start at $179 and can transform any necklace or bracelet into a call for help with a simple press. A computer will talk to 911 for you. The makers are preparing for their first manufacturing run.

A stabbing survivor created a ring with a hidden panic button that will alert police or anyone you choose. It's called the Nimb. It's unique because it also sends live audio from the scene, plus additional audio from the 60 seconds prior to activiation.
