Great resource


I haven’t needed the app and a couple of times my spouse has received a text when I didn’t realize I’d sent it, but that’s been over a period of a couple of years. I don’t have an Apple Watch or wearable device, but I love all the information the app provides such as locations of hospitals, etc., and the important numbers I would need in the case of an emergency that I might forget if in crisis. I don’t look for this to be my lifeline or feel a false sense of security having the app, but I love having it on my home screen as a starting point if I’m faced with an emergency.

App can't be trusted: they broke Pebble support


I had this App and the companion Pebble watch app installed so that if there was an emergency, I could trigger a 911 phone call from my watch. Well the watch app disappeared one day after an update, leaving me with no reason for having this app. What bothers me is that this app was working fine with my Pebble until one day when the app was removed. I was never notified.

Taking away a life saving feature from an app is a pretty serious change. The fact that this company seemed ok with making such a radical change to their app without clearly notifying their users that they won't be able to use it the same way, indicates that this company simply can not be trusted.

When we install app, especially ones that are only designed for use in an emergency, we need to trust that these apps will actually work when we need them to.

I'm feel glad that I found out about this broken app before I actually needed to use it. But I'm bothered thinking about all of the other Pebble watch users who think they have this app installed on their phone, and won't discover it stopped working until they need to use it.

Thank you for your feedback. We had to discontinue the Pebble due to its discontinuation. Please feel free to contact us at
More information about the Pebble being acquired by Fitbit.

Great app!


This app is a great companion to the pebble smart watch! It sends out text alerts to people you choose to come help you. It's currently the best emergency app for the pebble available. You might need to open the app for it to update your GPS location, but other than that, it's great!

I have some medical issues, and this is a cheaper and better alternative to life alert for me.
