FastHelp has just two buttons. The large red button calls 911, while the other tests the battery. The device itself is about the size of a pager (remember those?) and comes with a lanyard and belt clip you can use to carry it with you.
It’s waterproof, so you can wear it while showering, swimming, or playing with the grandkids (especially while holding the teething baby).
There’s no need to stay within range of a base station like at-home medical alert systems that keep you on a digital tether. And while the device is small, it houses a two-way speaker that lets you talk to 911 dispatchers directly through the device.
Inside the device, there’s a GPS triangulation unit designed to share your approximate location with emergency responders. But it doesn’t share your location with your family like other GPS medical alerts can. That’s good news for privacy but bad if you’re looking for a device that keeps track of your loved one.
