Pixie / Smart Watch for seniors


PIXIE is an e-ink display smartwatch designed in mind for seniors, specifically with weakened health concerns. According to the Singapore Heart Foundation, almost 1 out of 3 deaths in Singapore is due to heart diseases or stroke. Thus, PIXIE strives to mitigate risks in undetected heart health concerns, like detecting abnormal heart rate. Concurrently, PIXIE may serve as a wrist guardian like a medication reminder timepiece. The core competency is a quick response notification to next-of-kin and rescue if there is an emergency. With a simply designed user interface, end-users may interact with PIXIE effortlessly.
