October 17, 2013 -- Smart Monitor, Corp., an innovative monitoring solutions provider for the healthcare and wellness markets, announced today that its SmartWatch® product is now available to purchase through a monthly subscription plan. By drastically reducing the initial acquisition cost, Smart Monitor’s new subscription pricing makes SmartWatch more affordable than ever for potential users. “We aim to make it as easy and cost-effective as possible for anyone to own the SmartWatch,” said Anoo Nathan, CEO of Smart Monitor. SmartWatch is a patented, intelligent and non-invasive wristwatch that continuously monitors the user and instantly alerts family members and caregivers upon the onset of abnormal movement patterns. When the SmartWatch detects repetitive shaking motion, it signals the user’s Bluetooth-connected Android phone to send text and phone call alerts to whomever the SmartWatch user designates. Users can also summon help with a simple push of a “Help” button. Within seconds, family members receive the SmartWatch alerts, which include the date, time, location and duration of the event. Alerts can be sent to any phone, anywhere. SmartWatch automatically records movement patterns and other details of alerted events. These reports can be securely accessed for later review with physicians. With SmartWatch’s new subscription plan, users pay a one-time device activation fee, then a low monthly payment for service. SmartWatch subscriptions also include firmware and software upgrades, customer support, choice of watch band colors, and product warranty for as long as the account remains active. A new, intuitive user interface and “My SmartWatch” cloud portal will soon be available for all SmartWatch users as well. “So many people have told us how the SmartWatch has improved their daily lives by giving their families much-needed peace of mind,” said Nathan. “By keeping the initial acquisition cost low, our new subscription plans help make the SmartWatch as affordable as possible, while offering access to many new and exciting features.” About Smart Monitor Smart Monitor provides care management solutions for chronic health conditions.
