I am old enough to plan ahead on fall detection, but vigorous and stable enough not to need it in everyday life now. However, I no longer feel comfortable hiking alone, and would like a gadget that would detect a fall and report it, preferably where there is no cell signal; this may be too much to ask for but it is vital to know if it can or can't.
I originally thought about the Apple watch, but it can't be the only such gadget -- or can it? (The pendants one wears around one's neck are too hideous for any word but UGH!) I am not interested in any function except fall detection and reporting. I don't hike to be in touch with the world. I have a beautiful watch for time-keeping. So, techies, please don't regale me about all the neat stuff such a gadget can do. Thanks! (To clarify: I don't mind paying for a function that tells me the hourly temperature in Madagasgar; I just want never to be aware of it.)
One other point: I have a narrow wrist, and even something the size of the small Apple watch looks clunky and out-of-place on my wrist. I would like to wear the Gadget about halfway between my wrist and elbow, so it will be decently concealed by long sleeves. Vital technical requirement: The gadget should work reliably in this position.
Please Note: I am not asking about price. I don't care if something better is coming down the pike. I am asking about what is available with the above specs now. So, all the rationales about shopping questions do not apply. I am asking for pure technical information that will inform a near-term decision.
