We have all been there… we leave a mall after dark and feel uncomfortable walking through a dimly lit parking lot… or work on a Saturday and end up the only one in the building and in a parking garage. We have felt that twinge of fear wondering if we are safe and where help would come from if needed. Would it not be comforting to know all we had to do was tap our gold bracelet three times and tell loved ones we needed assistance?
CEO and founder of Wisewear, Dr. Gerald Wilmink has created fashionable security. The Socialite Collection is presently demanding much attention. Wisewear has designed the first metal bracelet where jewelry, technology, health notifications, and security are fused into one piece. Wilmink was able to obtain a patent which allows Bluetooth to be transmitted through metal, even up to ten times farther than the original plastic fitness bracelets. “We have fused fashion, technology and health into one place,” he said.
If a woman is wearing one of the Socialite smart jewelry pieces and is concerned for her safety, she need only to tap the bracelet three times to send her location to a selected list of loved ones. If she taps it a pre-set number of times, she sends a distress message for help to be on its way. The bracelet will count steps, calories burned, vibrate when a call is coming into her smart phone, and so much more. But, perhaps, what many women will think is the best part, are the stunning jewelry designs which look more like exquisite fashion accessories. “We are proud to bring the most stylish pieces in this segment of the market, and take the design as seriously as the technology,” Wilmink said. “We call it beauty and brains. You only need one brain which is detachable from the top of the bracelet. Then you can attach as many designs as you like.”
If it is your calories which have you most in fear, the bracelet counts the calories you burn along with the steps. It does everything and more the plastic athletic bracelets do. It even surpasses smart watches now on the market. Wilmink recently invited me to tour his company. His excitement for Wisewear, the employees, and the product is infectious. When touring visitors through the modest headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, he is like a kid in a candy store as he walks around the wires, motherboards, and computer components. Each employee and their projects have a great story, and with his boyish smile, WIlmink heralds them as the greatest tech minds available. “Each one is a genius… pure genius,” he said.
And the genius company has many projects currently in development. He believes the future is bright for the company his grandfather challenged him to begin. “My grandfather told me to follow what I love and to pursue my passion, so it has all been for him and his memory.” he said. “I want to make a difference and help people.”
This bracelet is stunning, functional, and does provide a sense of security in today’s world.
