Beacon Jewellery as a Personal Security device

IT World Canada recently reported Telus launches personal security beacons disguised as jewellery.

A problem with beacons is that they tend to look ugly when worn. Telus have solved this problem and have developed an app and service so they can be used as a SOS lifeline.

The Telus SmartWear looks like jewellery or a keychain. It connects using Bluetooth to a smartphone. When the back of the charm is double clicked it sends a alert. Telus will ring you back to confirm you need help and, if necessary, send emergency services.
