The Star wearable could be a wise choice considering the likeliness of injury for those who practice high-risk sports or fitness activities and for the elderly. It's equipped with a panic button that sends help in a simple touch, communicating the user's GPS location to the authorities. 

It tracks activity including steps and distance but also inactivity, reminding users when it's time to exercise by means of an alert.
