      @ Evie Worsham: thank you for your thoughtful comments! You're absolutely correct - it's not just seniors who can benefit from the Kanega watch. We've got a blind guy in our first trial - for just the reason you mentioned.

      I have MS. This would be a great product for anyone with Cognitive Disabilities. Example: Elderly, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, MS, etc. It would be great to know that if I got lost and confused SOMEONE would find me. (Sorry just finishing comment. Couldn't figure out how to edit.) I want love to stay in my home for as long as possible. And there are times when I can get a little confused, and something like this would help me, and give a certain amount of freedom/weight off my families shoulders that they could find me. Amazing idea!!! Heck, I recently helped a blind mind who got turned around in the neighborhood and was at the wrong store. This could have helped him, too. I helped him, but what if he was somewhere there were not people to help? I see a variety of different people using this product. Very thoughtful, and thought forward. Good job!!

      Hi Jeff, yes, you can put it on his Rolex wrist band. What you see in the prototype pictures is a standard "stretchy" watch band that I bought on Amazon... Current plan is to ship with a stretchy band, as that's what's been requested so far.

      My grandpa is going to love this. Can I put it on his Rolex wrist band?
