Wearable smart device designed for women safety
Winlet is a project that we followed for the Italian startup Security Watch born from the meeting of security, surveillance and digital technology experts. The idea behind the collaboration with our industrial design agency was to design and bring to the market a wearable device equipped with a deterrent alarm siren for the attacker. We worked with the team of electronic and sound engineers to design and fine-tune the device with the aim of designing a discreet, elegant and ultra-feminine device.

A women’s safety device should be a device that can adapt well to the different needs of each of them. Analyzing our reference user, we realized that it was necessary to design a device capable of responding adequately to different lifestyles. We have created a versatile product that is well suited to different contexts and types of people.
Every aspect related to the use of the device was considered, first of all we analyzed the situations and moods in which our user would have found herself using it. From this reflection we have opted for a system of enabling the request for help accessible even in panic conditions. The button that activates the alarm siren and the call to the control unit is almost as large as the entire device, and is therefore extremely accessible even in panic conditions. The device is also equipped with two accessories that make it versatile: the first is a hook that we have designed to give the user the possibility to hang it on their key ring or necklace / bracelet. The second is a protective hood that allows you to carry the device inside a bag without running the risk of activating it by mistake.
