First Look Gear Review
Street Price: $100
Pros: Compact and lightweight ergonomic design.
Cons: Message-send performance was sub-par. No smartphone interface. SOS access and cover flap require bare fingernails or a tool. 0.4 watt transmission power. Globalstar satellite constellation is arguably less effective than Iridium or COSPAS/SARSAT
Best Uses: Any activity or expedition during which simple pre-defined satellite message sending or tracking would be fun. Absolutely needs clear view of sky to function properly. Water resistant.
