Secure Couture Unveils Stiletto: High-Tech Fashion That Saves Lives

Stiletto, bluetooth-enabled jewelry that delivers industry-leading personal security, empowers women against stalkers and perpetrators of sexual and domestic violence.

WESTON, Fla., Sept. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Secure Couture, LLC, a technology startup whose mission is to empower women by increasing their control over their personal security, today announced the availability on Indiegogo.com of Stiletto, the most advanced personal security wearable ever made.

Measuring less than 1 inch x 1 inch and made of precious metals and real gemstones, Stiletto is a totally different type of wearable, one that is capable of transforming virtually any fashion accessory into chic, discreet personal security.

"From its inception, Stiletto's design and features were inspired by a diverse group of women and guided by their real-world experiences," stated co-founders Alex Gladstone and Daniel Gladstone. As a result, Stiletto is:

  1. JEWELRY: Not carried in the hand.
  2. CHIC & VERSATILE: Available in multiple styles.
  3. DISCREET: Even when sending an alert.
  4. ABLE TO "SPEAK" TO 911: Even when the wearer cannot speak.
  5. ABLE TO LOCATE YOU: Even indoors without GPS.
  6. SIMPLE TO USE: While remaining hard to trigger by accident.
  7. STERLING SILVER: With optional gold vermeil.

Stiletto is the first and only personal security wearable to incorporate all of these features.

Debby Tucker, Executive Director of the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence, had the following to say about Stiletto: "Secure, Stylish, and Smart! I am so very pleased with how well Stiletto works and looks. I know I'll be glad to wear one. The National Center is so appreciative of the dogged determination and creativity that our partners, Alexander and Daniel, have put into making this product both effective and attractive."

System / Mobile App Features:

- Industry leading location acquisition speed and accuracy; in a recent test, Stiletto was able to accurately report its location to 911 Dispatch within 20 sq. meters in only 45 sec. vs. 911's system mandate of 300 sq. meters within 6 minutes
