Help Is a Touch Away With New Wearable Safety Device, Revolar, Now Available at Brookstone

MERRIMACK, NH--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - Brookstone launches the first of its kind wearable safety device, Revolar. Revolar is a wearable technology that empowers individuals with unique intervention solutions. Whether you have food allergies, run alone, are sending your child off to college or are traveling abroad by yourself -- peace of mind is now available for everyone.

Founder and CEO, Jacqueline Ros created Revolar out of a passion to keep loved ones safe in a smart and technologically current manner. Ros felt that there are times, for one reason or another, that one wishes help was a mere press of a button away, so that's exactly what she built. Anytime you feel uncomfortable or think you might be in danger, a quick double press will send a Yellow Alert (a triple press will send a Red Alert) to your pre-determined Revolar contacts -- complete with your GPS location -- so you can get the help you need. Ros explained, "Revolar brings peace of mind in the little moments in which anyone feels less safe. We're honored to launch our product with Brookstone and provide the technology in a wearable safety device that can help keep you, your friends or loved ones safe."

Brookstone is thrilled to make Revolar available to consumers nationwide. "Brookstone strives to bring its customers the latest in innovation, and with Revolar's advanced technology, facilitating safety and empowerment, we're doing just that," said Tom Via, CEO of Brookstone. Brookstone Launch is continually seeking innovative products that align with its smart living product platform. Revolar is now available in Brookstone stores across America and online.

The wearable's sleek new design marries fashion with state-of-the-art functionality. Some of Revolar's key offerings:

Different alerts: A rapid double-press sends a Yellow Alert, indicating that you're uncomfortable or need to get in touch with your contacts. A rapid triple-press sends a Red Alert, indicating that you need professional help.
GPS Link: Your Revolar contacts don't need to download the app -- whenever you trigger an alert, a text message is sent to your contacts with an active GPS link.
Out of sight: Revolar is very discreet and measures less than 2 inches. It easily hides under your clothing or can be clipped onto your keychain.
Waterproof: Certified IP68, which means you can ditch the bag of rice if Revolar ends up in water.
Long battery life: Revolar uses a simple replaceable watch battery for power, which lasts up to a year.
Interchangeable: Revolar comes with two different cases: one to clip onto your clothing and one to attach to your keys.

The Revolar story is so powerful that Brookstone brought key storytellers to its Rockefeller Center store location to convey its compelling message to consumers and media as part of the product launch. Those in attendance heard from Jacqueline Ros, CEO of Revolar, Kiran Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at Brookstone, and the National Domestic Violence Hotline Executive, Cameka Crawford.
