ProteGear A*LIVE SmartSafety Tool - The Digital Rescue Assistant

Whether hiking, sailing, mountain biking or freeriding, every year thousands of outdoor athletes get into trouble, don’t know what to do, or need help after an accident. The A*LIVE SmartSafety Tool from ProteGear is not only designed to detect emergencies, in areas without network coverage the A*LIVE also serves as a satellite hotspot for your smartphone. If necessary, this safety tool can also independently call for a rescue and transmit your exact position. According to ProteGear, this can reduce the reaction time of the emergency services by up to 90%. To do this, the A*LIVE uses both the mobile phone network and the Iridium and global satellite networks.

What ProteGear Says

"For over 20 years I have been active in water sports. On the lake and in the sea, it is important to be aware early on if there is a problem or someone is drifting away. Our tracking device does just that and sounds the alarm in an emergency. With a forerunner concept we were already at the ISPO Brandnew a few years ago. We have now completed our product development, and from March we will be able toA*LIVE SmartSafety Tooland are very pleased about the "Product of the Year" award.
