Over the last year we have been testing prototypes, testing the app, and making the whole AllerGuarder system the best it can be. Along the way we ended up making some changes to the bracelet itself (so that it would seal more tightly, last longer, and have an improved battery system), as well as changes to the app to make it more effective (a better system for inviting contacts, better notification intervals based on testing, and more). We now have a product that my own food allergic kids wear every day, and I am so excited to share it with you.
Which brings us to some good news/bad news.
As is often the case with new products, through the course of making the much needed updates, we found that the product and development costs meant we need to raise the price of the bracelet. We are still doing everything we can to keep prices low, and this system is still less expensive than most other wearable tech. Starting on December 29 AllerGuarder will only be available for sale on Amazon, and will be priced at $79.95-$89.95 depending on the charms you select to go with it.
BUT… the good news for you is that we want to thank you for all your ideas, support, and participation on this journey with us. Many of you we have met at conferences and events in person. We want to make sure that you can get this bracelet!
Right now, we have kept 300 bracelets out of the Amazon inventory. These bracelets all have the updated design and app, and are identical to the ones that we will be selling on Amazon. We are offering you the opportunity to get the AllerGuarder bracelet right now for our original target price of $49.95 until we sell out of the 300.
We created this company because our kids have food allergies, and we wanted to design something that would keep them safe. We get it. With the cost of Epi-pens rising, and the cost of having a dangerous and stressful allergic reaction, we have created a system that will help prevent that and save you money. This introductory price is our way of saying thank you!
So which color would you like? :-)

P.S. As long as you order in the next couple days, you can still get your AllerGuarder bracelet before the holidays too!
