Travellers to Thailand to wear “Smartband” tracking watch

Special Tourist Vias, 14 day quarantine, “plans”, “models” and endless red-tape. Now we’ve got the “smartband” to track foreigners when they visit Thailand. The so-called Smartband will have to be worn by any foreign travellers entering Thailand. The new wearable restriction for travellers to Thailand coincides with the Cabinet announcement this week to allow more foreign tourists and crew of yachts to enter Thailand under the Special Tourist Visa program.

“The wristband can track their locations and measure the body’s temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. It can also help the wearers with various problems, such as asking for directions when they get lost.”

The Smartband is being introduced from today.It’s the brainchild of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, in cooperation with Thai startups, according to the announcement on PR Thai Government.

Details, as usual, are sketchy and there is no clarification where the smartband is given to the tourists, if it’s compulsory to wear or who pays for it. Nothing explains how the Smartband can help when the wearer is “asking for directions”. Or is it waterproof? On the government’s own PR Facebook page the reception was less than enthusiastic….

“I never wear a watch, especially in Thai heat. I don’t mind a month in the daytime but forever is nonsense. I wonder how it does in the pool? The original plan was a tracking app on the phone. No problem, I am boring, you can follow me if you like but this looks like a shakedown for tech that I don’t want, in a form that I do not use. What happens when you take it off? I certainly do not sleep with a watch on.”

“I think these measures will not be widely accepted by european users. Almost no one wants to go to Thailand with quarantine don’t understand why also add this measure.”

“The government just keeps adding silly requirements that are preventing me from wanting to go back to Thailand, and I am sure that I am not the only one.”

“Not a good idea.”

“Seems there’s a stark contrast between the easy going, open and warm hearted nature of the thai citizens and their government’s mindset & perception of how foreigners are and how they think we like to be treated. I am aware there are some who have no manners and behave poorly but that’s by far surely not a majority. As a visitor of whatever country it’s normal for me to behave as a guest of the country and behave accordingly just the way one expects it when you invite someone to your house for dinner. I am sure there’s other much better ways to keep those who are not welcome from traveling to Thailand than making every single person first of all a suspect of whatever sorrow may bother the government.”

    A good article with some very accurate and astute observations at the end. The TAT are seeking to [gradually] open the door again to some income from tourism but too many ridiculous decisions are being made that are actually a disincentive from attracting anybody to their bloated, complicated and constipated schemes. Very few will buy into another extra imposition like this, their ideas are nearly always counter-intuitive.

      Totally impractical for reasons mentioned in the article. Furthermore my blood pressure and heart rate can fluctuate for perfectly natural reasons and it should be up to me should I wish to bring it to the attention of a medical professional thank you very much. If these wristbands are made compulsory it’s a game changer as far as I am concerned and as much as I love Thailand I will choose to vacation elsewhere when it eventually opens it’s borders and I don’t think I’ll be the only one.

    These are not “normal” times. Of course there are people who are not going to follow the restrictions set by the Thai government but these days it could be a threat to all people in the country and re-seed the Covid virus. If people don’t get that this virus is deadly they need to stay out of the country.

    I am sure that same as me most westerners will not abide by this additional requirement.
    And I dont think that even the Chinese will like it.

    Keep on this nonsense please. More restrictions = no tourists = prices go down in LOS. Good for me. I like it.

      This Startup IoT thing doesn’t seem to be a (-n enforceable) requirement. Plenty of people aren’t really abiding by the existing measures if they can, and there doesn’t seem to be much policing of it, but that’s partly because there isn’t much of an epidemiological impact, just an economic one.

    It might be just another way to extort money from visitors
    The visitor will have to pay for this tracker, and the Thais will say it is essential for the good of the country.
    End result. Smiling Thais makes money, and the probably do not even track.

      I wouldn’t get too worked up about this. There is no wristband that can monitor blood pressure or body temp. This tech doesn’t exist. If it had a gps to track you, the battery would only last a couple hours.

      I wouldn’t call those “better alternatives”, plenty of problems in those places… pollution in air and food… violent crime… disease and medical access problems… there aren’t many places in the world that tick all the boxes, and those that do, cost a lot more than most people can or will pay.

    Hong Kong has had this since March, as has S korea since April and Singapore since August, and others have followed suit recently such as Saudi Arabia, Hawaii, and the Cayman Islands (some charging visitors US$150-200 for the privilege) but all only for the first fortnight (whilst in quarantine).

    Since the Pattaya News is apparently the original source for this internationally it may not be 100% reliable news ….

    another hurdle to get to Thailand. Well, if the population doesn’t want tourists in the country, we don’t need to come back after the crisis. There are so many other countries where we are still welcome to dirty Farang. And not just reaching for our money. If our money no longer arrives, the population will no longer profit from us. Now Thailand’s real face shows behind the smile.

    The one thing it dosn’t do is “replace quarantine”, just as it doesn’t in Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Hawaii, Saudi Arabia, or anywhere else that requires it (at a cost of US$150 -200) during the 14 days of quarantine.

    Given the original source for this information internationally, it may not be 100% accurate.

    Just another piece of evidence that the Thai government doesn’t like foreigners – except for the temporary visitor with lots of money. Who, in their right mind, would allow themselves to be tracked like an animal?

    Though a foreigner in the country, I am a resident, rather than a tourist and if I was thinking of a place to vacation, I’d surely choose a country that didn’t treat me like this.

    It’s shameful how the Thai people look at the farang…”Bring me money, big boy, but go home soon!”

    In fact, it’s just a problem with marketing.

    Add shopping capabilities and messaging services, a logo (real or fake) from Apple or Samsung, put a $1000 price tag on it and promote it as the latest “must have” tech gadget for all the many suckers who spend money on that garbage in their desperate attempt to divert every waking moment from having to interact with other humans in any social capacity.

A fourth local Covid-19 case was reported in Chiang Rai today. The patient is a 25 year old Thai woman who recently returned to Thailand from Myanmar by using an unofficial land crossing to avoid quarantine.

The woman travelled to Myanmar’s Tachileik district earlier this month to work at a hotel, she told officials. 3 other infected Thai women also tested positive in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai after working at a bar in Tachileik. Those women also allegedly entered Thailand illegally, dodging the mandatory 14 day quarantine period.

The women could face charges for entering Thailand illegally and violating the Emergency Decree. Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul says he’s asked authorities to press charges “to the fullest extent of the law.”

When the 25 year old heard the news of other returnees testing positive, she got tested. She has not reported any symptoms. The woman claims she stayed in a hotel room in the Mae Sai district from November 24 to 27 and ordered food to the room. She moved to another hotel in the Muang district. The woman claims she wore a mask and did not go to public places.

The Chiang Rai Disease Control is investigating and is urging the public not to panic.

The 3 Thai women who tested positive for Covid-19 after crossing the Thai-Myanmar border without being screened or undergoing the mandatory 14 day quarantine might face charges. Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul says he has asked authorities to prosecute “to the fullest extent of the law.”

Not only could the women face charges for illegal entry, they could also be charged for endangering public health as well as breaking the Communicable Disease Control Act and the Emergency Decree, according to Anutin. He says he’s working with the Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai governors to press charges against the women.

The infected women all worked at the same bar in Myanmar. One of them, a 29 year old, entered Thailand last Thursday in a public van, but was somehow able to evade the quarantine process. She then took a bus from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai. She had flu-like symptoms during her travels and checked in to a hospital a few days later where she tested positive.

The other women, ages 23 and 26, illegally crossed the border into Chiang Rai at night. After hearing about her friend’s positive result, the 26 year old went to a local hospital to get tested.

The health minister says Thais are welcome to come home, but they need to go through the official entry process to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Those who enter the country without going through the mandatory quarantine period could face harsh penalties, such as imprisonment, for violating the Emergency Decree.
