Aesthetically pleasing application of technology for a safer community. A couple questions: -Was the size by design or by necessity? -How is it notifying 'people within 300 yards'?

$99/includes lifetime service. Standalone 911 emergency dialer using GSM networks. Calls real local emergency services. Realistically, nobody is going to be wearing this as a fashion accessory. You'll put this on when you think you might need it, so functionally it's no different than wearing this 911 pendant on your neck or belt. Personally, I find the standalone nature of the 911 device much more comforting then a bluetooth device that requires tethering to a phone (and presumably an app)

Wow apparently they need a designer over at the 911 offices ahahahah I kind of agree with you though... with a ring that size, nobody's gonna wear it full time, most likely it will swim at the bottom of a purse. I'm not sure it's the best form-factor for something like that.

I wonder how this is better than maybe an Apple Watch complication which, when pressed, notifies people in the same way. Or in WatchOS 3, just hold the side button for 3 seconds and it does the same thing...
