Samsung Debuts Innovative Wearable and VR Partner Solutions for Businesses at Mobile World Congress Americas

Samsung collaborates with SoloProtect, Reemo and Ability Wearables to bring wearables to the workplace for improved employee safety and healthcare services

At Mobile World Congress Americas (MWC Americas), Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (SEA) announced several new partner solutions that offer innovative new capabilities for businesses through integration with Samsung’s devices and technologies. The solutions redefine enterprise mobility through innovation that addresses specific employee and customer needs in businesses including healthcare providers, companies relying on field service workers and fitness centers seeking to enhance user experiences.

New wearable solutions from†SoloProtect, Reemo,†and†Ability Wearables†integrate with Samsung smartwatches to accelerate wearables in the workplace. A virtual reality solution from partner†VirZOOM†provides new ways for fitness centers to enhance workouts through Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus. These new solutions, along with the company’s latest devices such as Galaxy Note8 and DeX, will be available for demonstrations in Samsung’s booth†(North Hall #N642).

“We’re seeing an incredible uptick in innovation through collaboration with our partners,” said Eric McCarty, vice president of B2B mobile product marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “As a result, we are seeing more mobile solutions emerge that are tailored to meet specific business needs – such as senior care facilities or lone worker scenarios. We are pleased to introduce some of the latest exciting innovations for enterprises at this year’s Mobile World Congress Americas.”

Wearables in the Workplace

Samsung’s B2B wearable partner solutions introduced at this year’s event focus on safety, wellness and health management, helping to accelerate deployment of wearable technology in businesses. Showcased in†North Hall #N642,†they are:

  • SoloProtect Increases Worker Safety:†Through integration with Samsung Gear S3, this solution helps protect individuals working alone—such as real estate agents and home healthcare workers, as well as utility and transportation professionals—who may visit strangers’ homes or work in high-risk fields. SoloProtect provides around the clock monitoring and communication via SoloProtect’s Emergency Dispatch Center (EDC), along with geo-location, emergency alerts, and status-checks through GPS-enabled wearables. A Status Check can be activated by the lone worker, which provides key diagnostic information including GPS information, and a Red Alert can be initiated to instantly contact the EDC for emergency assistance.
  • Reemo Improves Senior Care:†Reemo’s platform integrates withGear S2/S3s to give senior and care facilities insights into key health aspects, like activity level, heart rate, and sleep quality. It also creates a safety net with a continuous link between seniors and their caregivers. Seniors can easily connect to get help through the smartwatch’s built in cellular communications, enhancing their safety and mobility. Caregivers also have access to Reemo’s dashboard to monitor trends and activity, so they can react proactively.
  • Ability Wearables for Fatigue Management:†This helps solve fatigue-related challenges that impact businesses where employees often face long work shifts or physically demanding environments – ranging from trucking to construction to health care. Using Samsung Gear Fit2 and Gear S3 biometric and GPS data delivered through Samsung’s wearable API platform, GearUP, Ability Wearables delivers real-time health intelligence, enabling employers to reduce operational risk through predicting and monitoring employee fatigue risk, and redeploying high fatigue workers to less strenuous work if necessary.

SoloProtect and Reemo’s solutions with Samsung use†Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) from Samsung SDS†to securely simplify IT management, customize devices and employ IoT. EMM enables greater control over deployment and remote management of wearable features, including device wipes. Additionally, Samsung Knox, the company’s defense-grade security solution, is also employed to let businesses lock down employee wearables and improve security.
