In this day and age, you can never keep yourself too safe as a woman, and personal safety devices are really worth looking into. It’s always better to be prepared, and you can never be too careful. This diminutive device could safe your life, and it’s called the Revolar Instinct. It was developed after the co-founders both had scary experiences, so they set out to create a safer place for us all.
There are so many ways to use the Revolar Instinct. Personally, I am afraid to go running alone, partially because I watch way too much Investigative Discovery and partially because since my Rottweiler passed away, I no longer have a running buddy. For me, the Revolar Instinct makes me feel more safe while out running, because it’s a tiny little peace of mind.
I could also see this being a convenient thing for aging parents or grandparents to keep on them, it could be used to make sure your daughter or yourself gets to class in college ok, it’s a great choice if you go hiking alone, and it’s also great for any other risky solo activities, like riding horses without someone nearby. I honestly wish I had one of these back when I was online dating, because this is so discreet it’s easier to press this button and send a message than it is to have to pull out your phone and send a message.
So how does it work and how easy is it to use?
It’s incredibly easy to set up with your iPhone. All you need to do is download the app from the app store! So, how exactly does it work? You set up with the app, and you can create customized messages for a variety of check in options and pick contacts you would like the messages to be sent to.
There are three messages you can send:
Safe Check-In, which is activated by pressing the button once
Yellow Alert, activated by pressing the button twice
Red Alert, activated by pressing the button three or more times
Very easy to use, very straightforward, and I tested out how fast it took me to press the buttons for the different alerts, and it doesn’t take much time at all to even send a Red Alert. It’s nice to have control over the levels of severity so so you don’t accidentally scare your loved ones. There also is a practice setting so you can test all this out before you take your Revolar Instinct on the go with you!
It’s easy to wear, attach to your key ring, or put on or in your handbag. It also works 30 to 50 feet away from your synced smartphone and doesn’t drain your battery, since it works off Bluetooth with a low energy technology. Additional features GPS tracking so your contacts can tell where you are exactly when you set off an alarm, it comes with the ability to chirp so if you misplace it you can easily find it, it comes with step tracking, and it also comes with the ability to send you little vibrations when one of your messages is sent.
Another neat thing is that the Revolar Instinct comes with a battery that is good for up to a year! So you won’t have to worry about recharging. There are also no hidden fees to worry about or annual subscription costs.
