Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can someone else raise an alert on the MePACS Solo watch if I can’t?

Yes, anyone who you allow access to the watch will be able to double tap the ‘Home Key’ or tap the on screen ‘Alert Icon’ to raise an alert.

Is the MePACS Solo watch waterproof?

The MePACS Solo watch has been certified to 5ATM standards. This means that it is water resistant up to 50 metres in depth for a maximum of 10 minutes.

How long is the battery life on the MePACS Solo watch?

The MePACS Solo 42mm watch has a battery life of between 12 – 18 hours and the 46mm is 24+ hours, depending on usage. How many times you use the watch will affect your battery life and if you live in a low mobile phone reception area this will reduce the life of the battery as it’s working harder to find a signal. It takes around 3-4 hours to charge from flat and we recommend this is done when you are sitting down.

Can I still use the MePACS Solo watch in a low mobile coverage area?

The MePACS Solo will continue to function as a watch, and you can access all watch functionality. If there is no mobile reception area any alerts raised will be queued and regularly retried for 30 minutes with the alert status displaying on the screen.

How do I use the health app on the MePACS Solo?

If you have a MePACS Solo watch and want to know more about the health applications, we’ve got a handy how-to guide to help you learn how to get the most out of your new fitness companion.

What happens if a couple living together would like a MePACS Solo watch? 

We recommend that clients have a home alarm pendant each, and then they can share the MePACS Solo watch when they go out individually. Alternatively, they can purchase two watches and two monthly monitoring fees.

What’s the difference between the Apple Watch and MePACS Solo on the Samsung Galaxy Watch?

The MePACS Solo has been specifically designed for seniors and people with disabilities to keep it simple and easy to use with the features they will most benefit from.

The Apple Watch is packed full of features that may be a bit overwhelming and an SOS alert only sends a text message to pre-programmed family or friend when an alert is raised, who could be busy at that time and unable to respond in a timely manner.

With the MePACS Solo, alerts raised go directly through to trained operators who are guaranteed to respond within 2 minutes at any time of the day or night. This gives you the ultimate peace of mind that help is always on hand when you need it.

As we understand the situation and your medical history, we can pass all this information to 000 who will prioritise your call – this can make all the difference during an emergency situation.

Does the MePACS Solo have an alarm clock?

Can you find someone if they are lost via GPS on the MePACS Solo?

Family members are unable to connect directly to the MePACS Solo watch or have access to the GPS tracking, to ensure the privacy of the client remains.

Can you pair the MePACS Solo to a phone?

No. The MePACS Solo cannot be paired with a mobile phone. The MePACS Solo software has been adapted on the Samsung Galaxy watch to be a personal alarm first and foremost. The watch works completely by itself and includes its own e-SIM. Health metrics cannot be paired to a Galaxy Wearable app on a Samsung smart phone.

The MePACS Solo is a personal alarm watch with falls detection, a GPS locator and the ability to count your steps and heart rate.

MePACS will post the watch to you. If you decide that the watch isn’t for you within 14 days, you may return it as long as it is still in brand new condition.

Can the MePACS Solo be programmed to call my son or daughter?

No. MePACS has a dedicated emergency response team who are available 24/7, who will respond to a call for help within 2 minutes.
