The Benefits of Wearing a Life Alert® Wristband

Many seniors use medical alert systems, but not everybody wears theirs the same way. Some prefer to toss their pendants into a bag while out and about. Others enjoy the convenience of wearing a medical alert around their neck. Others, still, prefer to customize their devices with a wristband or watch. No matter how you prefer to wear your medical alert, what’s important is that you wear it in a way that it remains accessible, comfortable, and usable.

We know that Life Alert® wristbands are popular. Most Life Alert® packages come with a wristband in addition to the default pendant. But while these wristbands are popular among seniors, they can also be pricey. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that Life Alert® wristbands and products are among the more expensive options in the industry. We’re not sure how other companies price their products, but we do know one thing: Seniors can get a comparable service for less money through Alert1. We even have our own wristband accessories for you to choose from.

We understand that not everybody wants to wear a medical alert system around their neck. Whether the preference is a result of personal style, comfort, or simply ease of use, you should be able to wear your medical alert system in a way that feels comfortable. That’s what you can get from Alert1.

A Life Alert® Wristband Can Improve Your Medical Alert System Experience

When folks feel comfortable with their medical alert systems, they’re more likely to use them. In other words, if you feel good about the way your medical alert looks, or if you’re wearing it in a way that feels comfortable, you’re going to wear it more often. This, in turn, increases the device’s effectiveness. Purchasing a medical alert system does no good if you don’t feel confident wearing it around the house and in public.

This is why Life Alert® wristbands are so common. Medical alert systems are almost instantly recognizable around the neck. While some providers, like Alert1, have creative and stylish necklace options, we know that these don’t suit everyone’s style. By contrast, a wristband allows users to discreetly wear their devices without drawing attention to the fact that they’re wearing a medical alert.

But what about watch customizations? Wrist Life Alert® options only come in one color: White. There are third-party vendors who sell more creative wristband options, but there’s no guarantee they will fit your Life Alert® device. Alert1 is different. We recognize that our members want to style their medical alerts to fit their personalities. As a result, we have a variety of wristbands for members to choose from. Our bands are made of comfortable, showerproof silicone and come in several colors. With Alert1, you’ll never need to worry about a medical alert cramping your style. 

Choose Alert1 for Your Medical Alert Needs

We know that having more customizable wristband options isn’t enough to sway potential members. But in addition to providing a variety of customizable accessories, Alert1 also includes several senior-friendly services – from fall detection to GPS options. Whether you’re after style, a low price, or a device that keeps the call operator on the phone with you until help arrives, Alert1 is the answer.
