It all started in the roman city of St Albans were we, the founders, met as students and quickly became close friends. We have complementary skill sets that allowed us to successfully take on many projects together over the years. We always wanted to start a business together but the time or opportunity was never right.
That changed in 2021 when an opportunity arose to become early adopters of a new innovative networking technology being rolled out across the UK. Although only partially complete at the time the founders decided to take the plunge in order to steal the march on the competition.
Our flagship product the Companion Watch was born.
We rely on our watch to help keep our parents' safe
We are now of an age where our parents, although getting older, still live busy active lives. We want to keep it that way! Our parents wear our watch on a daily basis this helps keep them safe and also makes us customers of our own product allowing us to see what is and isn't working first hand. This feeds into a continual improvement in product to the benefit of both loved ones and those who care.
