WatchRx is building a watch with a built-in phone and GPS to help the elderly take their medications on time and live independently as long as possible. The watch is a first-of-its-kind for patients with usability challenges that take multiple medications, many of whom have chronic conditions, low vision, and cognitive limitations. The device provides trio feedback (audio/visual/haptic) reminders, including the name, dosage, and an image of the medication, as well as voice instructions and the ability to alert caregivers when medication dosages are missed. The watch also supports outgoing emergency calls, incoming calls from caregivers (doctors, etc.), and GPS tracking/alerts in case the person wanders away.
