The Sea-Tags wristbands work by transmitting an enhanced power-saving bluetooth signal that is continually monitored by one or more smartphones (or tablets) that are paired with the free downloadable application. If a wristband is immersed in water, or gets out of range, the signal is interrupted and the smartphone(s) trigger an alarm, while simultaneously recording the GPS position at the time of the incident. It then provides the rescuer with a heading and distance to help recover the the man over board. It is simple to use, affordable, and ideal for cruising couples, fisherman and children.
Navigate safely and securely with the Sea-Tags wristband and its free app. Your smartphone or tablet will alert you if a paired Sea-Tags user falls over board, and it gives you the heading and distance to help you recover the man over board.

The Sea-Tags wristbands continuously send a signal to one or more smartphones equipped with the Sea-Tags app. When a device is submerged, the communication is lost and all phones currently monitoring it will trigger an alarm and save their GPS position at the time of the incident.
Additionally, it is possible to configure the app in order to send a text message to an Emergency contact (friend or family). If a MOB alarm is triggered, the smartphone left on board, will send a text message to the Emergency contact with the GPS position of the boat when the signal was lost. The emergency contact can then lift any doubt by calling, and if needed, he can contact emergency services and give them the last known GPS location.
After an alarm is triggered, the Sea-Tags app continuously displays the boat position, as well as the direction and distance that separates it from the point where the communication with the device was first lost. The app also include a manual MOB alert and allows the user to easily contact emergency services.
