When talking about wearable safety technology, there’s a pint-sized crime defender that sets itself far apart from the rest, and that’s Occly. A Chicago-based company, Occly’s personal safety device is designed with runner safety in mind. Living in times with rapid change in technology, there certainly isn’t a shortage of products to help ensure your safety, although nothing quite like Occly.
Occly’s device includes all the bells and whistles, setting it apart from the competition. The device is equipped with four cameras which continuously record from different angles when in use. It features an alarm button that can be pressed manually or automatically triggered during an impact or an accident, thanks to its sensors. During the alarm, Occly sends and stores your recorded camera and audio data to the cloud.
Your personalized list of contacts is notified of the alarm or Occly also offers a 24/7 emergency response service that can respond to your alarms and send first responders to your location. Occly also has LED lighting to help make you stand out to vehicles and other individuals during evenings or poor weather conditions.
Occly creates a safe community for runners by offering mobile app features like CrowdHelp and CrowdWise. CrowdHelp notifies others if an alarm is set off by another user nearby. CrowdWise is another crowdsourced feature which help users identify areas of suspicious activity or crime. Occly also lets you know of locations which are safe to run in by providing a crime index rating of the area.
There isn’t a 100% fail safe solution, but adding another layer of security like Occly can help. Think of Occly as the perfect running buddy - that gives you the confidence to run anytime and anywhere.
