hearME is a comprehensive solution for personal safety including a community platform, guardian app and jewelry wristband for self-defense. By wearing our personal alarm device as an everyday accessory it already strengthens the users confidence and safety feeling. Wearing the bracelet on the wrist allows the user to activate it fast and easy with one finger and thus offers an effective help in case of an emergency. Just in case of activation pre-chosen SOS-contacts and other app users around will be informed about the users location for being able to organize help. We believe in creating a trustful community and products as a statement against any kind of violence and to inspire people to be mindful about themselves and their surrounding.
