Wearsafe Launches in Japan and Welcomes Hideki Matsui as Brand Ambassador.

This partnership will highlight Wearsafe’s voice activation capabilities for the Japanese market and show how the Wearsafe platform enables Hideki Matsui to stay connected to his mother and father, Saeko and Masao Matsui, should they need help. The collaboration will include a multifaceted campaign featuring Hideki and his family during Respect for the Aged Day (敬老の日, Keirō no Hi) on September 20, 2021.

Wearsafe is a modern-day mobile safety app designed for peace of mind anytime, anywhere. When Wearsafe is initiated by a voice-activated phrase in English, Spanish or Japanese or by simply tapping the app on an iPhone or smartwatch, designated contacts immediately receive an alert through email or text with REAL-TIME AUDIO and EXACT GPS location to coordinate appropriate help.

Wearsafe offers a simple and affordable way for families to connect should a problem or emergency arise, without making a call. Wearsafe can instantly connect individuals living abroad and parents with children,  in school or away at college.  During COVID, the Wearsafe platform transformed into a Smart PPE application as it provided another layer of protection and communication to those living apart.
