Revolar Instinct: A Device For Your Personal Safety

Revolar Instinct

Revolar Instinct is more than just a panic button. It is a no-fee, GPS-enabled step tracker that sends for help to your location.

The Story Behind The Product.

Revolar’s co-founder Jackie Ros thought of a “magic button” that could send for help. This happened after her sister was assaulted. The idea resonated with co-founder Andrea Perdomo, who fled violence in Colombia as a child. Together, they created Revolar.

The team at Revolar believe that everyone deserves to feel safe when running, going out, living alone, away at school, or on the job. That’s why they have created Instinct. With 1, 2, or 3 clicks, it texts contacts your location and if you’re safe, uneasy, or in an emergency. Plus, Instinct has step tracking and other hidden talents. They designed Instinct so you love wearing it every day. So it will be there if you ever need it.

A list Of Features.

  • Instinct let’s your contacts know your location and if you’re safe with a few click. The 1-click “Safe Check-In” is a press-and-hold functionality with an audible beep to signal that you checked in. So it’s nearly impossible to accidentally trigger any kind of false alert.
  • You can also personalize your alerts. You can choose what they say and which contacts get each level of alert.
  • Silent vibrating feedback let’s you know when each alert is triggered. This helps you focus on the situation at hand. The device also vibrates discreetly when a contact opens your alert. This lets you know when someone is viewing your situation.
  • Two clicks can make your phone ring with a pre-recorded audio call, for any situation when you need a voice on the other end of the line.
  • Instinct comes with replaceable battery included with up to 1 year of life. It requires no installation, no charging, no cords, no hassle.
  • Instinct works with iPhone 5 or newer operating on iOS 9.0+, and most Android devices operating on 5.0+.
  • Instinct is IP-68 WaterProof. It is military-standard drop proof.
