React Sidekick Now Available to Millions of Online and Mobile
Shoppers in Time for Back-to-School
SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ReactMobile–React Mobile, a leader in personal safety technology, today announced
that its React Sidekick, a wearable panic button that turns any
smartphone into a powerful lifeline, is now available for purchase at Target.com.
As a result of React Mobile’s distribution agreement with Target.com,
Sidekick is immediately available to over 1.2 million daily website
shoppers and more than 1.9 million mobile shoppers.
“The Target guest is digitally savvy, very family oriented, and
appreciates great products,” said Robb Monkman, Founder and CEO of React
Mobile. “We’re honored to be reaching these shoppers and to have our
personal safety technology available to families that may be preparing
for the upcoming school year. Child safety and emergency family
communication is often a back-to-school checklist item that gets
ignored. Together with Target.com, we’re making it easy for families to
address this important safety measure.”
The React Sidekick, which can be worn on a clip or keychain, pairs with
the free React
Mobile safety app via LE Bluetooth. With a single click of the
Sidekick, users can activate the app and issue an SOS alert for
immediate emergency assistance, even when their phone screen is locked
or their phone is out of reach. The React Mobile safety app’s
“Follow-Me” feature shares the user’s location with friends, family,
administrators or colleagues, enabling them to track the user’s
whereabouts in real-time and follow him or her to safety. Users can also
choose to automatically post their alerts to Facebook and Twitter.
Seen On TV, the React Sidekick retails for $69.00 and is also
available at other online retailers, including Amazon.com,
and at ReactMobile.com. Pricing and availability is subject to change.
