Gear Minute: ZOLEO
For adventurers who regularly travel out of mobile coverage, this new safety solution is a must-have
Meet ZOLEO, the world’s first truly seamless global messaging and personal safety solution, perfect for anyone who lives on the fringe or regularly travels out of mobile coverage for work or recreation.
When users travel beyond cellular coverage, the ZOLEO device connects with the free app on the users’ smartphone, allowing them to send and receive messages anywhere on earth via the Iridium satellite network. When users are within mobile coverage, the ZOLEO app delivers messages over cellular or Wi-Fi.
Built-in “Check-in” and SOS alerting buttons can be used directly on the ZOLEO device or via the app. When an SOS is triggered, the user’s SOS alert and GPS coordinates are transmitted to GEOS, the 24/7 emergency monitoring service included with a ZOLEO subscription.
The ZOLEO device is small, lightweight and provides over 200 hours of battery life. It’s shock- and dust-resistant, and features superior water resistance.
An MSRP of $199 makes ZOLEO among the most affordably priced satellite devices available, and monthly satellite messaging plans ranging from $20-50 offer more value than comparable solutions.
ZOLEO is an award-winning solution from a manufacturer with over 30 years of experience in the satellite business, so you can be confident you’re offering your customers the best.
