    "The Garmin Vívoactive HR is a GPS Smartwatch. It could be used for Alzheimer patients, but is really more than what they need if they are just needing a GPS bracelet. The Garmin Vívoactive HR would also provide heart rate and other exercise numbers."

    "Fitbit Alta has to be the best GPS bracelets for Alzheimer patients. My dad has Alzheimer's and I got this for him for his birthday and it's great to know where he is at all times and works flawlessly."

    "Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire is a smartwatch from Garmin and is available from Amazon for $699.99. It has many smartwatch functions, including a very accurate GPS. Info can be viewed through Garmin Connect. A lot of smartwatchs look goofy and I wouldn't wear one, but this is amazing looking. It is suitable for many uses and one of them would be for Alzheimer patients. It fits the topic well."

    "Although this is a fitness tracker, it works good for my dad who has alzheimers. He leaves it on, doesn't have to remember to take it with him. It also tracks heart rate so it is an added benefit."

    "This is a very nice watch. It looks really cool and is actually very comfortable. It was very easy to use and look at which I think is important so really anybody can use this thing. There are several nice features but the GPS is the main one and it works very well."

    "Although the Fitbit Charge 2 has GPS, it is more intended to be used to track fitness. It is not the most appropriate purchase to track Alzheimer patients. You would be better suited if you got a product specifically for tracking those at risk."

    "I didn't purchase one of these because I know someone with Alzheimer's, but instead for my daughter, a special needs child, when she began highschool. I've never had to use it, although it gave me a lot of peace of mind to know it was there. It's easy to use and affordable."
