    What our Testers Liked
    **This is a home test review posted on behalf of the family who took part.
    Attached to mum's walking frame so she didn't leave home without it
    Used the geofence feature so we just got a notification when she left home and arrived at her destination, and vice versa. That was enough to give us peace of mind.
    Daughter living further away felt more involved and up to date with how mum was doing
    What our Testers Disliked
    Battery took a little bit longer to charge than first thought
    What is Interesting
    Speed was interesting. We could see if Mum was walking, or on the bus.
    What our Testers Said
    It's given us so much peace of mind to know that Mum is safe, without restricting her usual routine in any way. We bought one so that when the trial finished we could just swap them over and we all knew how to use it.

    What our Testers Liked
    **This is a home test review posted on behalf of the family who took part.
    Very easy to use
    Carry case makes it easy to attached to a belt or can be put in your pocket
    The control panel and map were easy to log in to and see what was happening from my phone or tablet.
    The family found it very reassuring when B was out for a walk that they could find him if he needed help
    What our Testers Disliked
    Sometimes pouch fell off belt when going to the loo, so we pinned it on
    What our Testers Said
    We decided to get one after the test. Our grandchildren joined in with having the app on their phones, so it made it something that we could talk about easily at home.
    Customer service is very good. We called them a few times for help with settings and they were very helpful.
