A connected device that can be used in emergency to make calls/SMS

hello all,

my grandma in her 80s slipped and fell on the bathroom floor and broke her right hip. She had surgery, recovered in rehab and will be home soon.

She has an Android smart phone on the Fido 3GB data plan and uses Fongo to make/receive phone calls. I am looking for a smart device that she can wear 24/7 that in the event of any incident (e.g., medical issues, emergency) she can trigger her cell phone to make a call, or a text at the very least, to family members or EMS.

The logical device would be a small watch. The Apple watch would work but it's out of my price range and the battery life is too short.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
