You deserve to feel safe no matter who you are, where you live, how you look, or who you love. That’s why Revolar wearables can let your trusted contacts know your GPS location and if you need help at the click of a button.
This is the companion app to the Revolar Instinct and the original Revolar Safety Wearable, which sync to your phone through Bluetooth® low energy technology.
With a Revolar button synced to the Revolar app on your phone, you can:
CHECK-IN: Let loved ones know when you arrive safely at work, home, or elsewhere (1 press).
SEND ALERTS: Let contacts know you’re uneasy with a Yellow Alert (2 presses)* or ask for urgent assistance by sending a Red Alert (3+ presses).*
SHARE YOUR LOCATION: When you send an alert, your live, updating location is sent to your Revolar contacts.**
AVOID MONTHLY FEES: Sending alerts to family and friends is free. Text message and data rates may apply.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR MESSAGES: Personalize the communications your contacts will receive when you send a Check-in, Yellow Alert, or Red Alert.
RING ME: Excuse yourself from an uncomfortable situation by choosing to receive a pre-recorded phone call anytime you send a Yellow Alert.
PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY: You choose when your location is shared with your trusted contacts.
Features Available With Revolar Instinct Only
TRACK YOUR STEPS: With the Revolar Instinct, track your steps and view your aggregate health data by syncing with the Apple Health app.
FIND YOUR REVOLAR: If you misplace your Revolar Instinct, view the time your phone and Revolar last connected and make the button “chirp” until you find it.
TRAVEL WITH CONFIDENCE. The wearable works anywhere that the synced smartphone has cell service or WiFi.

Ratings and Reviews
App not working
App logged out and will not let you enter phone number to log in. Emailed support and no response. Is this company still in business?
Doesn’t always work
Hopefully they fix this issue soon, but there seems to be an issue with loading your contacts and occasionally when you hit the button nothing happens. I love the app when it’s working so hopefully you fix these issues soon.
Not good for seniors living in a house
There is a lot to like about this product and I'm hopeful it will be better soon.
First, it is REALLY irritating they do not state what version of bluetooth it uses. They seem to have made extraordinary effort to hide that information. Not on the web site. Not on the packaging. Not in the user guide. Not anywhere on the web I can find.
They clearly state the range is limited to 30-50 ft. But the range is significantly reduced by walls, floors, etc. So fine if you always have your phone with you. Not good if you leave your phone in another room and need to send an alert. My testing in 2 different houses showed it was not reliable when the pendant and phone are separated by 20-25ft and a wall or two. That just doesn't cut it for a senior living on their own in most homes.
Adding these 3 features would mitigate the range issue and probably make it reliable for seniors:
1. Need optional configuration for pendant to beep and/or buzz when it is out of range of the phone for more than X minutes. And continue to beep/buzz every Y minutes until it is back in range.
2. Need optional configuration to automatically send yellow alert when pendant is out of range for more than Z minutes.
3. Need way to ring phone that does not also send an alert (misplaced my phone).
Lastly, need an easier way for an elderly user to cancel an alert or for a contact to cancel an alert remotely.
Good start on a potentially great product. Either extend the range or mitigate the issue with software improvements.
