Embrace Watch has Arrived!

Well, nearly two years ago I ordered an Embrace watch, which is intended to detect seizures using other parameters in addition to accelerometers – this should make it more accurate and have less spurious alarms than OpenSeizureDetector.

I nearly didn’t publish OpenSeizureDetector because the Embrace was due to ship in June 2015, but in the end I published it because I was a bit sceptical of whether they would hit the June target and thought others may benefit from OpenSeizureDetector as a stop-gap….I am glad I did because the Embrace has only recently arrived, so OpenSeizureDetector has been in use for a lot longer than I expected.

Alas, I have not managed to get Embrace working yet – the watch is reporting connection issues, but the phone says everything is ok.

The Embrace Alert App only works with phones running Android 5 and above (not tablets), and I only have one of those, so haven’t checked if it is a phone problem or a watch issue yet….

I have left a review on the Google Play Store with some comments, and emailed them more information, so hopefully they will address these soon. ¬† ¬†Until then we will be sticking with the Pebble Watch and OpenSeizureDetector…..
