Smart phones can already do so much, but there’s one area where they still fail. Journey beyond the reach of modern cellular networks and beloved Wi-Fi and you’ll find yourself off the grid. Unreachable by any standard phone. Before it was the Walkie-Talkies that kept us communicating, but now there’s the Beartooth Smart Radio. That’s right, no more ancient two-way radios. Next time you’re on the slopes, in the backcountry or just have bad coverage, connect with Beartooth. Essentially, it works as a long-range link between you and other Beartooth users.
Your phone connects to it using Bluetooth, and your Beartooth connects to other Beartooth devices up to 10 miles away over the 900 MHz ISM band. You can make calls privately or address your whole group. You can also send text and share your location. The Beartooth’s range extends with each user as you create an advanced on-the-go network. Not only does it do all that, but it will also charge your phone if you start to run out of juice. No more struggling to find a buddy on the slopes again with the Beartooth smart radio. ($149)
