Battery Life - More Info
Our Dementia Tracker GPS Watch is specifically designed to save battery when it isn't needed. The smart home charging beacon knows when the wearer is at home and stops transmitting regular location updates when they are, reducing power consumption. Other trackers on the market continue to update their location at all times, even when the user is safely at home. This not only wastes precious battery, but as GPS only works outdoors, you would see inaccurate location readings.
Our estimate of 7 days' battery life is based upon the wearer going out of range of the Bluetooth charging hub for an average of 2 hours per day. However, if the wearer goes out less than this, it can last much longer.
The battery takes just 90 mins to go from completely empty to full, meaning you won't be left waiting for hours on end before you can get back to keeping your loved one safe.
Our charging dock system is also very useful for dementia patients that have regular family or carer visits. They can remove the watch and put it on charge while they're in the house, then ensure it's been put back on before they leave and it will have charged quickly whilst there were there.
Furthermore, carers can use a key to quickly pop the watch off the wearer's wrist for charging, and then ensure it's locked back on their wrist before leaving. As a result, the home beacon charging system is especially useful when used with the strap locking system in tandem!
Other trackers may die without warning you, meaning you could be left with a wandering incident and no tracking solution in place. Our Dementia Tracker GPS Watch can send alerts when the battery is getting low or has died, giving you enough warning to get it charged and prevent any periods without it being used.
