If you are used to doing sports, it is not unusual that sometimes you have gone to practice them alone. And that can mean, in some cases, exposing yourself to a danger that, even though it is not great, can be fatal. A simple stupid blow to the head can kill us if there is no one who can help us or who can call a doctor. That is why the application Watch over me it is so useful. On the one hand, the application monitors our entire journey, so that if at any time we have to send a notice that we need help, it will not only send the GPS position, but it will send the entire route we have traveled. In this way, the people who are going to help us can get to know how to get there without having to consult different routes.
On the other hand, the app acts as a sneak. We can configure the application so that if in a certain time we have not pressed the smartphone affirming that we are alive and safe, the application begins to send emergency messages. If we have hit ourselves, we will not be able to notify anyone, and the application will do it for us. It is not the same that our family is surprised that we do not arrive after 6 hours, that they receive the alert after half an hour. It may already be late, but it will increase our security. On the other hand, the application also has a version for smart watches. In these it would be much easier to press frequently indicating that we are safe. Perhaps every half hour, or 20 minutes, which would significantly reduce the relief time.
Finally, it has a function that is really useful and that does not go as far as the previous ones, and that is that a person from home can monitor our route in real time. There are already applications like Runtastic that include this function, but it directly carries all the emergency options that we might need, and it does not present the errors that Runtastic sometimes has when wanting to share our geographical position.
Watch over me It is available for Android and iOS, and has a free version and paid packs, which cost $ 10 / three months, and $ 24 all year. It resembles Motorola Alerts, although this one is noticeably more comprehensive.
