Since the invention of the smartwatch, people have been comparing the technology to that found in James Bond movies. While these models were not equipped with heat lasers and a direct line to Q, smartwatches were considered a huge jump in the mobile technology landscape. Well now, one company has added a popular feature from the classic spy movies that people have been asking for: walkie-talkie capabilities.
The new smartwatch is called StarVox and it will revolutionize the technology for years to come. With an outdoorsy focus, this smartwatch will allow hikers, rock climbers, and everyday nature enjoyers to communicate with their party without cell reception or mobile data. Say goodbye to getting lost, beacuse StarVox is here to change your next outdoor experience.
“No matter if you are hiking through the forest, climbing the highest peak, or escaping for a weekend of camping, there is no need for bulky radios or endlessly searching for a mobile phone signal,” says the Kickstarter campaign. “StarVox not only eliminates these problems with its walkie-talkie feature, but also functions as a superior smartwatch that frees you from additional items to keep track of and carry.”
To be honest, the fact that this kind of technology didn't exist in smartwatches already is mind blowing. While data and service have become fairly universal, there are still pockets of the country that are complete black spots for cellular activity, making this kind of technology a borderline necessity. And with James Bond talking into his watch on a regular basis, StarVox is somehow ahead of the curve on this innovative tech.
StarVox has launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of raising the funds necessary to bring this technology to the world. You can currently get a StarVox smartwatch for as little as $59 as an early bird rate, and you can even get two for the price of $99.
