Product details

Everything in one place.

How is it activated?

  • Buttons

    Simultaneously press the two buttons on both sides of your wristband together to get help. You can also do this on the clip.

  • Automatic fall detection

    Within seconds of your alarm being triggered by a fall, we’ll be speaking to you through the clip and we’ll get you the help you need.

Wearing options

  • Wristband: On the wrist

    Wear it like a watch.

  • Clip: Keyring, belt, lanyard, in your pocket.

Where can it be used?

  • At home
  • In the garden
  • Out and about

    The Buddi clip has a built-in roaming SIM card, which uses the strongest mobile phone network (also known as GSM) signal it can find to communicate with our careline team.

    Please note that the mobile network coverage in your area or the strength of the signal that you are able to receive inside your home are elements that are outside of our control.

  • In the bath or shower

    The wristband is IP67 water resistant, which means you can comfortably wear your alarm whenever you take a bath or shower.

    Please note, the clip should not be taken into the bath or shower as it is only resistant to small splashes.

Range

  • (Up to) 20m inside, 40m outside

    This is the approximate distance the wristband can be from the clip, although we recommend to keep both devices with you whenever possible.

    These devices communicate with each other using low-energy Bluetooth.

    Distances can vary depending on thickness of walls and other factors.

Size and weight

  • Wristband: 230 x 14 mm, 40 grams
  • Clip: 58.5 x 57.4 x 21mm (HxWxD), 48 grams

Battery life

  • Wristband: Up to 1 week

    Depends on usage. Takes 2 hours to fully recharge the Li-ion battery with the included USB charger.

  • Clip: Up to 24 hours

    Depends on usage. Charge daily to maximise battery life.
