    emergency number specific to your location. Or place a one-tap call to your
    personal emergency contact.

    dangerous situations, such as a hotel room fire or an animal attack as well
    as a useful "how to" guide for basic roadside repairs and an illustrated
    first aid guide.

    that range from pinpoint lighting to floodlight.

    strobe and full spectrum colors. Easily seen from a distance of 170 yards.

    alerts, current health status, medications, medical conditions, insurance
    information, and one-tap call contacts.
