Medical Guardian Active Guardian is a small, lightweight, standalone device with a higher-than-average battery life. While we like the design, we feel that overall, it’s a bit expensive.
The Medical Guardian Active Guardian is a solid product that covers just about every user need. That said, it costs a lot without providing extra value.
Medical Guardian Active Guardian’s baseline price costs more than or almost as much as all our other top brands’ prices with fall detection added. But you don’t get much for the extra cost. If you’re looking to scrimp and save, this isn’t for you.
While the necklace is advertised as small and lightweight, multiple reviews complain that it’s cumbersome. Our opinion? While it may not be small and lightweight compared to a regular necklace, it’s a competitive size for a wearable medical device.
A nicer and lighter alternative may be Medical Guardian's new alert pendants. With these necklaces, you have a choice between black onyx and gold, white mother of pearl and gold, black onyx and silver, and turquoise and silver. With these designs, users won't be hampered or embarrassed by wearing a clear medical implement around their necks.
The battery on this necklace lasts for five days. That’s an excellent length. A user can get away with charging the device only once or twice a week.
Medical Guardian’s website has a lot of popups, quizzes, available downloads, and other sorts of background noise. The site tries to get your contact information from you so customer service representatives can contact you directly before you buy, which is inconvenient for quick shoppers.
You can call or email Medical Guardian customer service representatives if you need help with the Active Guardian. Representatives work round the clock to provide service at all hours.
ASecureLife’s recommendation: Medical Guardian is a competitive choice if you’re looking for a well-designed necklace with a good battery life.
