MePACS Solo – The 24/7 Personal Alarm Service – New Watch Coming Soon
Due to Samsung discontinuing the Galaxy Watch 1, we are no longer able to offer the MePACS Solo on the Samsung Galaxy Watch.
We are committed to bringing our clients the best personal alarms available on the market and are currently in development of a new personal alarm watch which we will share with you over the coming months.
In the meantime we have a great MePACS Mobile Alarm which you can still take out and about with you. It is simple but effective with two-way voice communication, fall detection and audible battery indicators.
MePACS 24/7 Service via the SOS Alarm
It’s the same guaranteed 24/7 service from the MePACS trained professionals.
You raise the alert, and we’ll respond via the mobile alarm within 2 minutes. We will contact you via the alarm to understand the situation and then organise the right help to you quickly.
The mobile alarm also includes a GPS locator, so we know where to send help to you fast. We’ll also keep in contact with you until help arrives, giving you that extra reassurance.

Frequently Asked Questions
These questions are to assist existing MePACS Solo clients with their personal alarm watch.
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.
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 42 mm watch has a battery life of between 12 – 18 hours and the 46 mm 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.
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.
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.
