If you enjoy hiking, climbing, skiing, or any other activity that generally takes place in a remote area, we found something you definitely need to check out. Conversely, if you go to a lot of concerts or sporting events and you’re always frustrated when network congestion prevents you from calling and texting your friends, this is also a device for you. The BEARTOOTH Smart Walkie Talkie isn’t actually a walkie talkie. Instead, it’s a little box that connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and then you can use the BEARTOOTH app to talk, text, and even share your location or navigate to someone else’s location — all without any Wi-Fi or cell service. Ready for the best part? Depending on your surroundings and the terrain, these devices have a range of between 1 and 3 miles!
