Maybe you get outdoors to disconnect, but if your adventures push you beyond the point of mobile service, then investing in satellite communication is a smart way to ensure you have a lifeline if you need it.
The ZOLEO, which was named 2021 Outdoor Retailer Product of the Year, transmits messages via the Iridium satellite network to provide you with seamless messaging no matter how far off the grid you get.
With great emergency features such as progressive SOS alerting, check-in, Medical Assist, weather forecasts, and location sharing you and your loved ones will have peace of mind, no matter where your adventures take you.
Here are more features you’ll get with the ZOLEO:
- Each satellite communicator comes with its own dedicated SMS number and email address, making it easy for your loved ones to save the contact information in their phone.
- You can send messages of up to 900 characters without worrying about cutting out necessary words and information.
- The ZOLEO offers progressive SOS alerting and consistently updates your status as you move. These ongoing status updates are great for when you’re out deep in the woods.
- Not only will you have SOS with the ZOLEO satellite communicator, but you’ll also be able to use it to access non-emergency medical advice 24/7.
- With a number of affordable devices and plans, you’ll be able to be in touch with others as much – or as little – as you want. With plans that offer limited and unlimited messaging, you can send occasional updates, or splurge for the unlimited if you go out often, and for a long time.
- The ZOLEO satellite communicator is a durable device that has over 200 hours of battery life.
- ZOLEO is one of the only communicators that offers easy device sharing. That means your friends can easily connect to your device via Bluetooth to message their loved ones as well. (One user at a time.)
