In Depth: Revolar

In the age of #TimesUp and #MeToo, a product came to my attention that I think that very relevant to the times we live in. Called Revolar, it is a discreet button type device that’s synced to your smartphone (it supports iOS and Android smarphones) that you can wear to get yourself out of unwanted situations.

You can press it once to let your contact list know that you got to your destiantion safely. Press it twice in a row and your phone rings until you answer it, which is a great way to get yourself out of a crappy date or some other uncomfortable situation. It also has real-time GPS tracking for your contact list to see where you are in case you need help. Press it three times consecutively in an emergency and the police are contacted, and GPS is tracking your every move. This in short creates multiple ways for you  to be safe.

Here’s a video for Revolar in action:

Revolar is the brainchild of Jackie Ros and her co-founder Andrea Perdomo. Both have had negative experiences that drove them to make a product to allow one to feel safe in any situation. The reality is that:

  • Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted
  • 1 in 4 women & 1 in 6 men are sexually assaulted in the U.S.
  • Hate crimes against minorities have gone up by 67% in the last two years

With stats like that, you can see why a device like Revolar is valuable. There are two versions of the Revolar. The Classic which is $40 USD, the Instinct which is $80 USD. I am pretty sure that there’s someone in your life that could use Revolar. Thus I would recommend considering this product to keep them safe.
