As the original version of Embrace has been discontinued, you may be wondering what the differences between Embrace and Embrace2 are.
Same sophisticated sensor technology
Both models contain the same sensors that are used to monitor the movement patterns and physiological signals that may be associated with tonic-clonic seizures.
Same alerting functionality
Both will send SMS and phone call alerts to caregivers when an unusual pattern in movement and physiological signals is detected.
Now, let’s look at the key differences:
The original Embrace covers you for 24 to 30 hours and it takes around 1 hour and 40 minutes to be fully charged.
Embrace2, on the other hand, comes with a superior battery life that lasts for 44-48 hours and it takes around 1 hour and 20 minutes to fully charge.
Different watch face
Embrace2 features 4 engraved hour indicators making it easier to read the time, while the original only has the heart in the 3 o’clock position.
Prescription required for the US
In the US, a prescription is required for Embrace2, as it has been cleared by the FDA as a medical device. The prescription must be uploaded to your Empatica Account within 120 days from the date of purchase.
