The iBeat Heart Watch is a sleek and stylish watch that continually monitors your heart rate. Should anything appear to be off, we will ask if you are okay. If you indicate you are not okay or do not respond within ten seconds, our dispatch team will be contacted. The product functions like an everyday watch - shows you the time and allows you to set an alarm or timer - but also includes an emergency help button that when pressed can notify your emergency contacts, our dispatch team, and if needed, 911.
We have begun taking online pre-orders and will ship the watch, first come, first served, beginning in late July 2018. White and rose gold watches will be shipped in 2019. Simply click the 'Pre-Order' button on our website to buy an iBeat Heart Watch. We will send email updates as the exact shipping date nears.
The iBeat Heart Watch retails for $249, with monthly monitoring starting at $17. The monitoring fee covers our 24-hour dispatch support and cellular functionality. Every iBeat Heart Watch purchase comes with one free month of monitoring. Users who pre-purchase a yearly monitoring plan will save $41. iBeat also offers 0% financing through Affirm, enabling customers to forgo one full payment and instead pay in easy and flexible monthly payments. There is no commitment to continue the monitoring service after your free month. Should you forgo the monitoring fee, the watch will still function, but it will not be able to alert your emergency contacts or 911.
The iBeat Heat Watch continuously monitors your heart rate, blood flow, and changes in oxygen for anything that appears to be unsafe. We analyze this data in real-time to look for potential life-threatening emergencies. If something appears to be off, the watch will ask if you are okay. If you indicate 'No' or do not respond within ten seconds, our around-the-clock dispatch team will be contacted. Within seconds of an emergency happening, the watch will notify our dispatch team who will send the appropriate help - police, firefighters, paramedics, or even just a loved one - to your exact location. The watch also has an emergency help button that can be pushed at any time to get you aid. Your designated emergency contacts will receive a call or a text notifying them of your emergency, and an incident page will be made available showing your location, current status, and if you’ve been taken to a hospital or nearby care center. You can choose which of your contacts has access to this information.
No. The iBeat Heart Watch is fully cellular. There is a monthly service fee starting at $17 that covers our 24-hour dispatch support and cellular functionality (which is how your emergency contacts and 911 get notified). All iBeat Heart Watch orders include one month of this service for free.
iBeat has a unique cellular chip which uses both T-Mobile and AT&T networks. Because connectivity is mission critical, we made it our imperative to have as broad of coverage as possible. This is the only personal emergency device available which can dynamically change network carriers based on location and signal strength.
The iBeat Heart Watch does not need cell coverage to continually monitor and analyze your heart health, but in an emergency, the device's ability to contact our dispatch team, your emergency contacts, and emergency services is dependent on cell connection. Should you happen to be in a no coverage area during an emergency, the device can send out an audible beacon that can alert anyone in your local area.
The iBeat Heart Watch comes in two sizes - Small/Medium and Medium/Large. The band has 8 holes and can be adjusted ensuring a comfortable fit for most wrist sizes, but in order for the watch's sensors to properly measure your heart activity, the watch works best on wrists at least 4.5 inches or larger in circumference.
The iBeat Heart Watch is not meant to monitor or detect individual conditions, but rather continually monitor your heart for slowing, stopping, or any activity that could be indicative of a life-threatening emergency. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, mitigate, cure, or prevent any disease or condition, and is a notification device that can immediately alert family, loved ones, and emergency respondents in the case of an emergency.
No, the iBeat Heart Watch is a consumer device. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, mitigate, cure, or prevent any disease or condition, but is rather a notification device that can immediately alert family, loved ones, and emergency respondents in an emergency. The product is not yet FDA cleared, but we are working on it.
The iBeat Heart Watch does have built-in fall detection technology, but this functionality will not be available until the end of 2018. If you have already pre-ordered or plan to pre-order an iBeat Watch, the fall detection feature will be included and wirelessly updated to your current device when it's available.
When setting up your new iBeat Heart Watch, you may select an unlimited number of emergency contacts in the online dashboard. If an emergency happens, your contacts will be notified via text message or a call from our dispatch center.

Yes. The iBeat smartwatch operates similar to a cell phone and users with pacemakers should follow guidance from their doctor. Please note though, it is not meant to replace your pacemaker or defibrillator.
The iBeat Heart Watch will last 3-4 days before needing to be recharged. The device comes with two mechanisms for recharging - an attachable battery that easily clips on to the side of the watch, allowing you to still wear the watch while charging it, and a tableside charging dock. The watch takes roughly hour to charge.
The iBeat Watch is water resistant and can handle light splashing. It and can be worn in the rain, while washing your hands, bathing, etc., but we do not recommend swimming with it.
Of course! The iBeat Heart Watch was designed to be worn around-the-clock, and it's an FCC and carrier-certified device that transmits far less frequencies than a standard cell phone. The sensor technology has been thoroughly tested, and it is completely safe to wear on your wrist and skin.
In the event of an emergency, the iBeat Heart Watch will always ask you if you are okay before taking action to dispatch 911. If it is a false alarm, you'll have ten seconds to tap the watch and say you're okay before we escalate the issue. Additionally, the watch will first notify our dispatch team who then calls you directly. Only then if you do not response will we field the call to 911.
You, your doctor, or anyone else that you authorize may access our secure online dashboard where you can view your data including your heart rate and general activity levels. You will also have access to download the raw data to share with your provider.
Currently, the iBeat Heart Watch is only available and functional in the United States. In the near future, we plan to offer an international version of iBeat with multi-language support.
