Apps for Heroes: CommandWear Pebble app keeps first responders heads-up and hands-free

First responders have one of the toughest, most critical jobs out there. Any chance Pebble gets to show love and support to these everyday heroes is a win in our book.

Paramedic + Pebble

Today we’re proud to share news that CommandWear—a platform for using technology to keep first responders heads-up and hands-free when out in the field—now integrates with Pebble and is live in our appstore for Android devices.

We love that CommandWear, like Pebble, is purpose-built to be truly useful for those who need it. During extensive testing with police, paramedics, and other first responders, CommandWear refined their app to make the best use of Pebble’s tactile, glanceable, durable, and fast design and interface.

“At festivals, concerts and other large public events, noise levels can be at a height where you can’t hear yourself think, let alone hear radio communications,” explained Rod Salem, Director of Emergency Management Operations at BC Ambulance. “We have tried a number of different products, such as headsets similar to what pilots wear. Although they solve the noise issue, they are cumbersome and not conducive to caring for patients in the field.”

First responders found Pebble’s wrist vibration gave them the ability to detect incoming messages that they would have missed on their radios or smart phones. It’s great to see emergency workers like Rod show love for this Pebble integration already, and look forward to more feedback as CommandWear becomes part of more safety agencies’ toolkits.
