UnaliWear Medical Alerts Review 2022

Sarah Badani

In a Nutshell

The UnaliWear Kanega watch is a wearable medical alert device that is designed to be fashionable, sleek, and lightweight. Beyond that, this smartwatch has all the features you could ask for, including fall detection, voice control, and medication alerts. Plus the UnaliWear is AI-based. So it’s always learning more about you and how to work better for you.


  • Automatic fall detection
  • US-based TMA 5- Diamond and UL Certified monitoring center
  • 24/7 access to emergency response agents


  • Doesn’t work outside of the United States
  • Watch is only leased and must be returned when contract ends

Best For

  • Those with medical conditions
  • Independent, active seniors or high-risk
  • Medication reminders 

Monitoring Services

The UnaliWear watch is always connected to an emergency response team. They’re always listening and on-call. So if anything happens, they can respond immediately. If you need assistance, you can just call out. This is a real game-changer because the biggest problem with many medical alert systems is that the client can’t reach the system in order to call for help when they need it the most. Your Kanega watch will respond to your voice commands and send help accordingly. When you first set up the watch, you'll be asked to tell it its “name.” Then you’ll be asked to repeat this twice more to train the system to recognize your voiceprint. 

Product Features

The Kanega medical alert watch is definitely one of the most advanced of its kind. It is loaded up with cool features that are as neat to program as they are safe to have. Some of the noteworthy ones include:

  • Fall detection

The Kanega has built-in fall detection. If the watch thinks you’ve fallen, it will begin with a small alert sound and an emergency message on the display. If there is no response from you, you will automatically be connected to an emergency response operator with whom you can speak directly through your Kanega watch.

  • Voice-controlled

This is one of the most important features for seniors and anyone who requires medical assistance. Voice-control means you don’t have to press buttons or get to a receiver to contact medical staff. This is vital in an emergency situation, considering the fact that you may not be mobile enough to get to a base station or to press a button.

  • Emergency response

Speak to an emergency medical operator directly through the watch. If you need assistance, the operator will send emergency services or get in touch with your friends and family to help you out.

  • Medication reminders

Medication alerts can be programmed into this watch, delivering text or voice reminders

  • GPS location

Loved ones can always keep track of where you are. So you’re never lost, even if you’re disoriented.

  • Quick-swap battery system

The system provides you with a backup battery and a built-in reminder. So you never need to take off your watch and risk forgetting to put it back on or being out of range while it’s charging.

  • Waterproof

The Kanega watch is waterproof, an important feature considering the fact that so many accidents happen while in the shower while playing sports, or in the rain.

UnaliWear also has an amazing “Guide me home” assistance feature coming soon. This will help guide someone home in the event that they’ve become disoriented.

It’ll go with you wherever you go and keep you connected to an emergency medical response team at all times.

Bottom Line

The UnaliWear Kanega watch is a ground-breaking innovation that is helping transform the Golden Years for many seniors out there. Craving their independence, seniors of today don’t want to be tied down to a single location or activity. The watch offers a solution that can keep them safe and monitored while still remaining active. The Kanega is feature-rich, including fall detection, voice-controls, and even artificial intelligence. Add to that the medication reminders and a sleek design, and the Kanega watch is an obvious choice for any senior looking to feel secure and independent in their day-to-day life.

About UnaliWear

The name UnaliWear comes from the Cherokee word Unalii, which means friend. The watch title, Kanega, means speak. Ultimately, UnaliWear is a company that is trying to tell its customers they’re friends that want to speak to you. Launched by Jean Anne Booth out of concern and love for her own elderly mother, UnaliWear watches were born to overcome the challenges of aging safely in today’s more active and independent senior society. The idea of including artificial intelligence into a medical alert system was revolutionary, and UnaliWear utilizes the technology proficiently. The Kanega watch can monitor a wearer’s behavior, learn from the various movements, and understand motion patterns. Then the system can actually provide predictive support for any changes in the regular motion, speech, or activity level patterns it’s learned.
