Recently, Spacetalk opened a B2B2C distribution channel for its LIFE smartphone watch for older people. To begin with, the Company has partnered with leading aged care and home care provider ACH Group.
The partnership with the ACH Group will expand the reach of the revolutionary and affordable Spacetalk LIFE smartphone watches to older Australians. Spacetalk LIFE will be provided as a wearable safety device, which is eligible for government funding through the Home Care Program (HCP), Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or NDIS.
LIFE retails for AU$399, ~40% less as compared to other comparable devices. The price reduction will enable LIFE to be entirely funded by the government under the CHSP, HCP or NDIS. Besides the B2B2C launch with the ACH Group, LIFE continues to sell retail at JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
The Spacetalk App is designed to offer a family atmosphere for entertainment, engaging and safe media consumption in addition to its device control features for the guardian. With the help of this app, family members can link contact. Every related contact, including parents, grandparents, other family members and friends, irrespective of whether they are using iOS or Android, can interact with connected Spacetalk devices and each other using the Spacetalk App.
The app also offers instant messaging and calls, similar to WhatsApp, with the additional benefit that Spacetalk communications are restricted to an ecosystem of contacts approved by the parent for their child.
With this, family chat makes for a unique, secured family environment where every linked contact, approved by parents, can engage in wholesome fun ways, including the sharing of pictures, videos, and audios.

SPA’s key objectives include expanding Spacetalk Life for seniors, advancing the Spacetalk app to drive device sales and annual recurring revenue (ARR), focusing on global expansion, and growing the top-line with an expanded product suite.
