Here is how safety works on Hug Smartwatch
Hug Smartwatch was born from an emotion that left the world shaken, with an aim to address women’s safety in an effective manner. Following the gruesome Nirbhaya Incident in 2012, Hug decided to make safety one of the most critical features of this smartwatch. When in distress, the user can activate the safety feature by pressing the SOS button on the watch or by using gestures. A simple hand gesture of twisting the hand back & forth 6 to 8 times can activate this safety feature.
- The victim activates the safety feature either by pressing the SOS button or using the hand gesture feature.
- The watch vibrates, indicating to the victim in a discrete manner that the safety mode has been activated.
- There is also a provision for False Alarm Detection, where the victim gets an opportunity to dismiss the safety alarm using an IVR secure passcode.
- Well-wishers (friends & family) will receive an SMS with a live tracking URL of the victim’s whereabouts. The map is customized to highlight nearest hospitals and police stations.
- It is not possible to read every SMS with the same urgency. Hug well-wishers can download the Hug Smartwatch App and register themselves as well-wishers. By doing so, Hug Smartwatch app can recognize this SMS as danger and raise an amber alert on the smartphone. This enables the SMS to capture the attention of the well-wishers.
- In addition to well-wishers, Hug will also notify nearby Hug Smartwatch users in the vicinity. The idea of Hug is to create a human blockchain for a good cause.
- Even if no SOS has been pressed and a user goes missing, Hug can retrieve one week of data about the victim from the last known location. This data can be reverse mapped to learn if there have been any involvements of a stalker, based on the victim’s location information.
- The SOS can be dismissed by the victim using a passcode once they are safe. All the well-wishers will be notified about the same and real-time tracking shall be automatically disabled.
- This entire workflow takes place in less than 10 seconds. Hug Platform is provided free of cost to the user. This is a corporate commitment from Hug to make a difference in someone’s life.
