If able, the watch should be activated manually by tapping the alert icon or double pressing the ‘Alert Key’. You can read more into how falls detection works here.

Frequently Asked Questions
These questions are to assist MePACS Solo clients with their personal alarm watch.
It’s important to note that not all falls will activate the watch. It may not be activated automatically if someone braces themselves, the fall is broken by a chair or object, and if they slump or roll to the floor. If able, the watch should be activated manually by tapping the alert icon or double pressing the ‘Alert Key’.
Yes, anyone who you allow access to the watch will be able to double press the ‘Home Key’ or tap the on screen ‘Alert Icon’ to raise an alert.
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.
The MePACS Solo watch has a battery life of between 10-12 hours depending on usage and mobile phone reception. 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.
The MePACS Solo will continue to function as a watch, and you can access all watch functionality. However if you have no or low mobile reception in your home you will not be able to raise an alert for help. And if this is the case, we will not be able to sell you the watch on its own or you can choose to purchase the MePACS Home alarm too.
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.
