From standalone satellite communicators to nifty gadgets that connect to your phone, there’s now an abundance of options when looking for a way to communicate with others while outside of regular cellular service. Garmin and SPOT devices are among some of the most popular, but there are several other reputable options, including Zoleo, Somewhere Global Hotspot, and even a handful of new smartphones.
The new Motorola Defy Satellite Link is a satellite communicator that connects via Bluetooth to your Android or iOS smartphone, providing two-way communication when traveling outside of cellular service. It’s designed to be rugged and waterproof, weighs just 70 grams (2.5 ounces), and has a 600mAh battery that’s good enough for “multiple days of use.” The best part is that the device costs just $99 and subscription plans start at $4.99 per month. It appears to be a simple device, with no LCD screen and just a few functions that include an SOS button and check-in/track option.
The Defy Satellite Link is supposed to be available this April, and you can sign up here to learn more about preorder details.
