The technology behind the watch

A wearable for user-friendly health services

An mSafety solution employs wrist-worn wearable devices that come with your application pre-installed. Benefit from these powerful devices in your service.

Device overview

An mSafety device is a discreet, high-performance wearable with the form factor of a wristwatch. The devices are equipped with state-of-the-art sensors for health activity data. Designed for all levels of digital literacy, the uncomplicated, intuitive devices are ideal for user-friendly remote health monitoring.

Two-way communication enables seamless interaction between the device user and the service provider. Customers benefit from global roaming and an incorporated data subscription – no pairing or extra profiles required.


An accessible device

mSafety devices are standalone, meaning that they work without pairing to a smartphone or companion device.

They fit any level of digital literacy and a wide range of demographics and abilities. The devices enable intuitive usability via buttons and/or touchscreen, easy-to-read black-and-white screens and can connect with external sensors for more functionality.

Smooth onboarding

The usability of the devices makes it effortless to instruct and onboard users.

Your application is pre-installed, so that the devices work out-of-the-box. Once switched on, they connect with the service provider’s backend and start sending data. Two-way communication means alerts can travel both ways. Devices are re-usable.

A reliable companion

The mSafety wearable is manufactured according to Sony’s own strict quality standards.

It is tough enough to handle dusty or sandy environments and to resist the corrosive effects of sea water and salt spray. It can withstand shocks, vibrations and drops as well as thermal shock, extreme temperatures and radiation from the sun.

Sensors and algorithms

The devices feature in-device sensors for health activity data and connects to external devices and sensors via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Sensor data is uploaded automatically. Thanks to a global roaming profile and data subscription plan, the wearables remain continuously connected in a wide range of environments.

In-device sensors

  • Accelerometer 
  • GPS 
  • Gyroscope 
  • Photoplethysmography (PPG) 


  • Heart Rate Variability 
  • VO2 max 
  • Caloric expenditure 
  • Footstep counter
  • Positioning 
  • Sleep detection  
  • Gesture detection 
  • Fall detection 

Connectivity technology

As a low-power, wide-area (LPWA) network technology, LTE Cat-M1 was specifically developed for use cases requiring low-power IoT communication. LTE Cat-M1 is now being used for IoT devices in most major markets. This makes it the perfect choice for mSafety wearables for safety and health services.

The choice of LTE Cat-M1 as the mSafety connectivity technology simplifies life for device users and allows service providers to create more innovative solutions.

Enhanced connection

LTE Cat-M1 cellular technology eliminates dependency on a companion device, provides a continuous, reliable connection with a global roaming profile. The advanced LTE release 13 CAT-M1 chipset – as well as the power-efficient multicore microcontroller – also mean mSafety devices have a long battery life.

Integrate your own devices

Your service may already have wearable devices in operation, or you may want to add additional devices to mSafety. If this is the case, we offer an add-on service that allows partners to integrate their own wearables into the mSafety platform. This simplifies device portfolio management by letting you manage devices and fleets from a single location.
