Fitness tracker, sleep monitor with a display and child locator... the SenseGiz Star does it all, combining all of our favorite wearable smart devices into one product. But what really sets the SenseGiz Star apart is an integrated crash/fall alert system. The device senses crash level forces and sends an audible alert to your emergency contacts through an iOS or Android app. We've also built in an emergency button so you can send alerts with a few simple taps. The SenseGiz Star is designed to save lives. It's waterproof and has a built in battery that can last up to seven days.
You can wear the Star as a smartband or attach as a clip to your clothing. This does not seek to replace your beloved smartphone but intends to complement your smartphone.

Some technical features you might want to know:
STAR Polycarbonate Casing Mould
STAR Strap Mould
Now don’t you think those features are awesome and something you would need? Well, we want to bring this technology to you because we care for your well-being. But we are in need of your help to make this vision come alive.
Think about it, you would be bringing to life a technology that will make a difference to your and many other peoples’ lives. Something that would make you feel proud of yourself. So you may be wondering how I can contribute to this vision?
Three ways by which you can contribute to support us :
1. Click on the Contribute Now button scrolling up to the top right or
2. Select a perk and click on the Perk tile to claim and contribute or
3. Share this campaign with your family, friends & to all you know by going to the Share the Campaign Tab just below our video on top.
How It Works:
The way this technology works is that if you (say Fan A) clicks on one of the Share Tools (let's say the Twitter button on the main home screen for SenseGiz STAR), then Fan A (you) will be directed to Twitter with a pre-populated message that includes a link to the STAR’s IndieGoGo page:
"Help make it happen for SenseGiz STAR: A Wearable Smart tech product on Indiegogo -
*This is our Unique ID, yours should be different. The number on the end**The short link under the video on our main page is your Unique ID. Save it, copy it, etc.
As long as Fan A (you) is logged into an IndieGoGo account when they use any of the Share Tools, the link will also include a special ID (unique to you) that ties the tweet to Fan A. Then when someone (say Person B) who is reading Fan A's tweets clicks on the link in Fan A's tweet about your campaign, a few things will happen:
1. Person B is taken to the SenseGiz STAR’s campaign page and a "View" is registered on your Analytics tab in the Summary section.
2. A "Referral" is registered in our Analytics for you. The "Referral" is attributed to Fan A (you) in our analytics.
3. If Person B (your friend) ends up pledging for a SenseGiz STAR Smartwatch, then Fan A (you) will be accredited as bringing in Person B (your friend, fan or follower) as a pledge.
At the end of the SenseGiz STAR’s campaign, we will then compose a listing of all of those who have referred to pledge for SenseGiz STAR and send you SenseGiz Find or STAR free if you bring in referrals.
SenseGiz Inc is started by Abhishek Latthe and Apurva Shetty with a view to build a consumer electronic based company with a focus on innovative product development. We design and produce amazing consumer electronic products that add value to your every single day. Our prime focus is to design products that help keep our users safe, fit, happy and thus empowered.
It was a dream since Abhishek’s engineering days to build a company like SenseGiz. He then pursued a Master's degree in Mechatronics to equip himself with the right technical skills. He and Apurva were brainstorming various ideas in 2011 and out of that brainstorming, SenseGiz was born. We initially started to produce only the STAR, and then later added SenseGiz Find.
We have talented engineers who have worked in various other companies on cutting-edge technologies. Each individual has specific specialist skills, which combine together to develop our products.
It has been a challenging journey for us, as consumer electronics needs a lot of investment as well as top notch technology skills. But our team has persevered and overcome all hurdles one by one to be ready to launch our products.
We are presently bootstrapped with funding from family and friends and thus seek your support in making this dream come true for us so that we can make a difference to people’s lives.
We are hoping to get a huge support from all you lovely people !
