Walkie Talkie Watches
This pair of gadgets is something I would really like to try out. The Walkie Talkie Watches are two completely functional watches with all the power of a set of two-way walkie talkie radios.
To the average person they look just like an ordinary digital watch, however with the almost hidden retractable antenna, they double as two-way radios that can communicate with crystal clarity up to 3km. There are 8 channels and 38 sub channels to choose from, giving you over 300 possible secure lines of communication to ensure your privacy. There is also auto channel scanning and squelch control included.
There is an included headset which attaches to the watch, and has Voice Activated Operation (VOX) technology for hands free use. There are five melody call tones to choose from, and they are compatible with all two-way radios transmitting or receiving at 446 MHZ. The watch also has an alarm, a stopwatch, all displayed by the back lit LCD screen.
The watches run on rechargeable lithium batteries charged via an AC adapter. The batteries require a 24 hour charge the first time they are charged, then each time after they only need a 6 hour charge to provide 40 hours of standby time as well as 2 hours of continuous talk time. The watch is completely free to use and doesn’t require any licensing to use.
I don’t know about you, but these just sound too cool. I could think of hundreds of uses for them and I may have to go get a set!
