Adrian you perhaps know the order of magnitude price delta between a consumer device and a device which is med-qualified.  Your mother is a doctor as I recall.  She may know how much anything allowed in a hospital must meet reliability standards that have been set to absurd levels.


If a watch could alert the parameds, we couldn’t afford them.  If one is set to call next-of-kin and we accept that it might not work, or might send the occasional false alarm, they need not be med-certified and are ordinary consumer items.
