First, I want to say welcome to the Relay BETA and thank you for participating! I can’t wait for your families to get their Relays and see what everyone thinks!
Before you receive your Relay devices, I would love to hear what you all are hoping to use Relay for and how you think it’ll change the way your family functions on a daily basis. Please take a minute and respond to the following:
- What are you most excited to use Relay for?
- What problems do you hope/expect Relay to solve for your family, if any?
- Do you have any fears about using Relay? If so, what are they?
I, myself, don’t have children. So I’m most excited to use Relay while going for a walk or jog around the neighborhood. I don’t usually take my phone, but often wish I had it, especially when it begins to get dark. I don’t like being out of communication with my family when in a situation like that, so I am really excited to be able to have a device that I don’t have to worry about breaking as I am exercising, that will allow me to stay in contact in case of an emergency.
I think Relay could also be extremely helpful on road trips. My family takes road trips usually a couple times a year, but there are so many of us we usually have to take 2 or 3 cars. Instead of looking at the phone to make phone calls back and forth and waiting for the other person to pick up, it would be so convenient (and safe) to just press the button and say, “We’re stopping for gas at the next exit”. Additionally, taking Relay to amusement parks, the pool, and other places where you wouldn’t want to carry something as breakable as your cell your phone would be another awesome way I would use Relay.
I don’t have any fears about using Relay.
