HOW IT WORKS
The watch is connected to our mobile application via Bluetooth. By pressing the watch’s alarm button for 5 seconds, you activate the quiet alarm, and by double tapping the watch button, you make your phone play a siren sound. When the alarm button is triggered, your location will be disclosed and shared with your chosen followers.
1. ALARM GETS TRIGGERED
Press the watch’s alarm button for 5 seconds to activate the quiet alarm, or double tap to make your phone play a siren sound.
2. FOLLOWERS ARE NOTIFIED
Your followers will be notified via a siren alarm notification.
3. GPS ACTIVATES
Your location will be disclosed to make sure you are safe!
The watch has two different types of alarms - a siren alarm, and a quiet alarm. As a watch user, you can activate alarms through your safety watch, or inside the app. By double clicking on the watch’s alarm button (placed at 10 o’clock), you activate the siren alarm. By pressing the watch’s alarm button for 5 seconds, you activate the quiet alarm. Regardless of what alarm you choose to trigger, your location will temporarily be shared along with a notification to your followers.
In the app, you can also activate our “Follow me home” function that allows your followers to continuously track your route home.
As a follower, you will be notified whenever a watch user activates an alarm. By seeing their location and quickly getting in touch through the app’s chat, you can help them feel fearless at all times.
THE NIBYE WATCH
The Nibye Watch is a handmade designer watch with an integrated safety alarm. It comes in four designs: silver/gold, gold, rosé, and silver.
For the alarm functions to be active, you need to have an active subscription, internet connection, and to be logged in to the Nibye app. That’s where you’ll connect the watch, create groups, and add followers. To be able to be a follower of a watch user, you also need a working internet connection, and to be logged in the Nibye app. No subscription needed.
Inside the watch, there's a chip that enables the watch to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. To be able to use the alarm functions, you have to connect the watch with the Nibye app. The watch has to be within 10 meters of your smartphone to work.
The watch has two batteries - one for the alarm function, and one for the clockwork. That means you never have to charge the watch. The app will let you know when your watch runs out of battery, so that you can replace it in time. The alarm function’s battery (CR3032) lasts for about 2 years. The clockwork’s battery (SR626SW) lasts for about 3 years.
THE NIBYE APP
The app is a key part of the alarm system. The Nibye app is available via App Store or Google Play, and is needed to connect the watch, create groups and add followers. The app is notified when you trigger the alarm, and automatically alerts your chosen followers with your GPS position.
As a watch user, you need a subscription. The subscription is bought directly in Nibye’s app, and costs 49 SEK per month. It is always included 1 year free of charge. Followers need to download the app and sign up, but do not need a subscription.
