If your phone has a signal and you've connected your Assure band with the app it you can call for help and your responders will be told your location.
We are excited to get your thoughts on the apps. Like all innovation we know there will be improvements to be made but if you'd like to try it and give us feedback, we'd love to hear it. To find out how to try the app for your phone please click on the tab below.
With the Acticheck app installed and your smartband linked you can GoAnywhere and have all the confidence that the Assure gives you at home.
Rather than loading the band with all the technology that you already have in your phone the app enables you to share the geo-location and data capability of your phone to continue to deliver alerts, fall monitoring and wellness checks wherever you have phone coverage.
The phone uses tiny amounts of data from your data plan. Most people will not even notice the 2MB of data usage a month and we have also been careful to conserve your phone battery.
We do need you to give the Assure app the following permissions:
We recommend that you leave the app running at all times. It uses only a small amount of the phone battery and will be available when you need it.
Your band will remain connected to the app until the Bluetooth connection to the app is unavailable when it will try and reconnect to your base.
When connected to the app your latest location will be shown on your MyActicheck web page. If you raise an alert the location will be provided to your responders as a link to Google maps in an SMS and email.
For the app to work the iPhone must be running iOS 10.2 or above (all up to date phones do) and be an iPhone 5 or above.
Please drop us an email to email@example.com to leave us comments about your experience of using the app.
Dear Android user,
You will be aware that there are many different Android phones and updates and they all work in a slightly different way.
We use a combination of the latest Android features and can't guarantee that the app will work resiliently on every phone. To arrive at a definitive list we would need to test the app on every combination of phone and Android version and we just can't do that; but we hope you can help.
If you are willing to try the app and give us feedback we hope to build a list of phones that the app works resiliently with and those that are less reliable. We can then share this information within the Acticheck community.
As we are testing this with you we don't want to put the app on the PlayStore but if you are willing to try it out please follow the steps below.
For the app to work the phone would ideally be running Android 6.01 (Marshmallow) or above, although some (not all) instances of Android 5 (Lollipop) have been seen to work OK.
Please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating 'App Trial' in the subject line. If you can also let us know what phone you are using that would be great. This means we can let you know if we improve the app and can also come back to you to ask your experience of trialling it.
