Athena is a discreet wearable that sends GPS notifications to emergency contacts via Bluetooth. Attach it to your clothes, bag, or backpack. Or even wear it as a pendant.
There are two modes. One sounds an obvious, high-frequency alarm to frighten attackers as it simultaneously send a distress message, with your location, to your chosen contacts. The other mode, called SilentROAR, alerts your contacts in a silent, discreet way.
Co-founder Yasmine Mustafa was moved to start Athena after solo-trek through South America where she met locals and travelers who had been victims of assault. ROAR for Good is a certified B-Corp that, besides inventing a device, is helping change the environment that makes women unsafe. They run educational programs to teach youth about healthy, respectful relationships and treatment of others.
