The Medical Guardian Icons Collection has four gorgeous medical alert pendants styled after Audrey Hepburn, Dolly Parton, Tippi Hedron, and Farrah Fawcett. These devices are genuinely pretty pieces of jewelry, but they aren’t as practical as our other picks on this list.
The Icons Collection pendants are available only with the Home Guardian and Mobile Guardian kits. They cost an extra $2.99 per month. They work as a simple alert button but lack two-way communication and fall detection. They aren’t waterproof either, so you won’t be able to wear one in the shower.
Luckily, the Icons pendants come paired with other devices. The Home Guardian home unit is made of a simple base station and a wearable (your Icons Collection necklace). At 600 feet, its range is significantly shorter than other in-home units. But it has a loud two-way speaker, power outage protection, and strong cellular signal to stay connected with the monitoring center.
The Mobile Guardian kit is the other compatible system for the Icons Collection. Like the MobileHelp Solo, the Mobile Guardian is a two-piece GPS system with a GPS unit and the necklace wearable. You’ll need to stay within 350 feet of the GPS unit, but you can call for help using the Icons necklace anywhere your GPS device is. So you can go to lunch with friends, go to your grandkids’ recital, and take a walk in style (and safety).
We love the way the Icons Collections medical alert jewelry looks, especially if you don’t want a clunky medical alert necklace. But you’ll have to sacrifice a few features in the name of fashion.
