Fall Detection

Spacetalk Life just got safer

With the Fall Detection feature on your Spacetalk Life device, you’ll never be far from help if you experience a fall. It uses advanced technology to automatically detect if you’ve taken a fall and checks if you’re OK.

This feature is available right now for all Spacetalk Life customers via a free over-the-air update* to your device and App.

How does it work?


Once a fall has been detected, your device will vibrate, sound an alarm and display an alert for 30 seconds. If you’re OK, simply press to cancel the alarm.


If you don’t respond in time, an alert is sent to your emergency contacts in sequential order, along with your precise location.


If none of your contacts respond, emergency services (000) will then be contacted.


Your fall detection and medical alert device then displays your Medical ID on the watch face, so emergency responders can see your relevant medical details at a glance.

Medical ID

In addition to Fall Detection, this update also includes Medical ID, a safety feature that gives emergency responders the critical information they need — like your medical, allergy and other relevant information. In situations where an emergency occurs and seconds count, this important medical emergency feature is potentially life-saving.
