OK seriously, the BEARTOOTH Smart Walkie Talkie solution might be the coolest thing we’ve come across in a very long time. How aggravating is it when you go hiking or camping and you’re out of range so you have no cell signal? And how annoying is it when you go to a concert or a sporting event and the network congestion makes it impossible to communicate with other people in your group? The BEARTOOTH Smart Walkie Talkie system is the answer.
This brilliant little gadget connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and then BEARTOOTH devices connect to each other over dedicated radio waves. While connected, you can talk and text with any other BEARTOOTH users without the need for cell service or Wi-Fi. You can also share your location, and other users can navigate to you with the BEARTOOTH app. By now you’re wondering what the range is, and you should prepare to be impressed. Depending on the terrain and your surroundings, BEARTOOTH has a range of between 1 and 3 miles!
BEARTOOTH is a bargain at $249 for a pair of devices, considering how useful and awesome they are. But if you snag a set right now on Amazon you can clip the on-site 15% coupon and save just over $37.
