The LutiBand is a next-gen medical alert device as well as a great smartwatch. Its combination of advanced security features and precise biometric readings make this a fantastic wearable for you or a loved one.

For a limited time, the LutiBand Smartwatch is on sale for $99.99 (regularly $169).

Medical alert device and smartwatch in one

The LutiBand takes the typical health functions of a smartwatch a step further by adding medical alerts that help keep its wearer safe. From the mobile app, you can view the location of the LutiBand at all times. You can even set up a geofence perimeter that will send a notification when the wearer steps out.

That means you can know when your child goes out at night or when your elderly relative might need help. Thehearup called LutiBand “a game changer for seniors.”

“Even though the screen is pretty small,” the publication wrote, “still a senior can easily read all of the words and data, which is shown because of how the user interface is designed to give maximum reading capability.”

LutiBand features like Trusted Places and History Tracking add to the package. They let you configure notifications when the wearer arrives at a set location or track where they have been before. You can even share your information with a loved one to give live updates.

Advanced health stats when you need them

But what really makes the LutiBand special is its in-depth health analysis and alert system. The biometric sensors save the wearer’s vitals once a day and keep a record. If the wearer needs assistance, the smartwatch can measure their vitals — heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen and body temperature — and share the data with emergency services.

You also can add detailed medical information so the smartwatch can send a full history if you ever need it in an emergency. And if the wearer falls, LutiBand can automatically notify loved ones that help might be needed. Finally, the smartwatch can send medication reminders, so the wearer doesn’t forget to take the right pills at the right times.

Save on LutiBand

Beyond the health features, the LutiBand is just a great smartwatch. So its wearer can do the usual audio and textual tasks on the same device that can save their life.

For a limited time, you can get the LutiBand smartwatch on sale for just $99.99 (regularly $169).
