1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted while in college. We are committed to changing this statistic. That’s why we created OnWatch™.

OnWatch™ gives you the tools to alert the people you trust when you need help. Six customizable alert modes allow you the flexibility to alert your friends, your campus police, local 911 or a combination of all three whenever you need them.

Here’s how it works:

Need help right away?
Launch OnWatch™ and with just two taps, you are connected to local 911 or your campus police, and a customized message is sent to your pre-selected friends via text and email.

Just need your friends?
Sometimes your friends are the only people you need. With just two taps, you can send a customized message to your pre-selected friends, letting them know that you need help.

Going out for a run alone?
Set the timer feature. When the timer expires, you will receive an alert. If you don’t respond to the alert, a customized message will automatically go out to your pre-selected friends.

OnWatch™ includes your GPS location with all messages, so emergency services and your friends know where you are. And any time you activate OnWatch™, you can choose to have an alarm sound and a flashlight go off. You can even post your messages to Facebook and Twitter!

Please remember that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Very good start However, I do not see how useful the app can be in warning peers if there are aspects of the app which are critical and cost money. If possible, I strongly suggest opening some of the trial aspects up for permanent, free access.
