Spring and summer are when wilderness adventures typically come into play for most people and if you’re planning to really get away from it all and into the depths of a woodland trek or mountainous excursion, it might well be a good idea to have one of these Somewear Global Hotspots in tow for the trip. Funding on Kickstarter now, this clever little accessory is described as a global, satellite hotspot which will bring your friends on every adventure with you and it is thoughtfully designed to fit right in your pocket.
The Somewear Global Hotspot is capable of offering 100% global coverage by connecting your smartphone directly to various satellite networks dotted above our heads. So, what this essentially means is that if you’ve got a clear view of the sky above you, then the Somewear Global Hotspot has got you covered. When it is pair with a satellite, you can communicate with the outside world and access relevant information via the Somewear App, which delivers a first rate user experience.
When heading to particularly remote parts of the world, it’s important to be able to remain in contact with the outside world when you wander into spots with no cellphone coverage and that’s exactly what the Somewear Global Hotspot allows you to do. Flying past its funding target on Kickstarter, this innovative accessory lets you stay in touch, stay informed and stay safe by still having access to data when you don’t have a conventional phone signal.
Unlike the majority of satellite based devices, Somewear Global Hotspot allows for two-way communication and via the app you are able to converse via text or email with any of the contacts in your smartphone. In addition, the onboard GPS of the Somewear Global Hotspot means that a geographical location is included with each message you send so if you’re stuck in the wilderness and need help, it will help rescuers pinpoint exactly where you can be located.
Another great feature of the Somewear Global Hotspot for those heading out into the wild is the fact that it offers local weather alerts which is important because weather can quickly take a turn for the worse and, depending where you’re hiking or camping out in the wild, this can put you at risk but with this clever device you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from being forewarned. It comes with an SOS Emergency button which can be accessed by popping off the cap and pressing the button to be rescued anywhere in the world – this feature is monitored 24/7 by GEOS Worldwide.
Flexible Pricing Plans
Needless to say, some people will spend more time out in the wild than others and there are a number of different pricing plans for using the satellite features of the Somewear Global Hotspot to suit every budget starting at just $15 a month for sending up to 20 satellite messages at 160 characters. The device itself is incredibly lightweight and easy to carry around – something vital for the adventure inclined – and it is incredibly robust with shockproof and waterproof materials used in its construction.
If you’re already planning your summer wilderness adventures and want a safety net that will help keep you safe and in contact with the outside world in tow, they don’t come much better than this Somewear Global Hotspot which is taking Kickstarter by storm as we speak. You’ve still got plenty of time to pick yours up for the bargain price of just $299 – which is $150 off the intended release price.
