  • Do's & Dont's
    Some elements can prevent the satellite from picking up your O-BOY’s emission. This can happen if you’re under hard surfaces (roof, cave), under water or if there is no clear skies (trees, canopy) For the best signal, avoid bending over the watch, and even better, take the watch off your wrist and hold it by its strap, with the screen pointing skyward. This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
  • How It All Started ?
    A PERSONAL STORY ... Hi, my name is Hadrien. Let me tell you a little “Oh, boy…” story that turned into O-BOY history. In 2015, I was windsurfing off the coast of Sal, Cape Verde islands, when my board fin fell off. Not-so-fun fact: without fin, your board is as unsteerable as a floating log and getting back to the shore is practically impossible. So there I am, miles from the seaside, watching the beautiful sunset telling me “Good night, buddy!”, uselessly trying to paddle my way back to safety against the current, thinking about how I could have avoided this situation. Had I had my phone with me, it wouldn’t possibly catch any signal to allow me to call for help – so I guess that’s the risk you take when going windsurfing. “Oh, boy… I’ve landed myself in quite a pickle!” I thought as these felt like my last moments. Then, out of nowhere, a boat full of night divers cruised by and saved my life. Now that is luck! After that, I decided I’d never take such risks again without a solid back-up plan. I needed a reliable device, designed for all types of adventures, absolutely everywhere on the face of the planet, and that I just could wear on my wrist. But I couldn’t find the solution I was looking for. So I made it. FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY ... A few years later, while following an entrepreneurship class at UCLA, I had the opportunity to pitch my concept. Convinced and boosted by the enthusiasm I encountered, I quit my comfortable law career and founded a start-up to design the perfect solution. Soon after, I was joined by Antonin, PhD in Mathematical Physics, MIT research scholar, and engineer at heart: it was the perfect match. Three years of hard work and R&D later, our rescue wearable is finally ready to get out there and save lives. O-BOY, what a journey!
  • What is the mindset of O-BOY ?
    O-BOY MINDSET We all need one. One to comfort us. One to get us out of trouble. One to ease our mind and tell us it’s going to be ok. A failsafe friend. A protective mother and a loving father. Someone to trust. Someone who feels like home. One to give us the courage to go further. One to come and get us when we’re lost. A beacon of light in the dark. A hope in the desert. A St. Bernard in the mountains. A dolphin at sea. O-BOY will never let you down, O-BOY will always be there. Everywhere. Anywhere.
