With a Bivy Stick, you can send messages from your smartphone from just about anywhere in the world. This new device is the latest in a suite of products that allow you to send and receive messages on your smartphone using satellite connectivity. These new products now allow outdoor adventures to not only call for help but also send updates on backcountry trips and stay in touch with friends and family.
One huge upside to the Bivy Stick is that there are no contract or activation fees, you can turn it on only when you need and save money when you don’t.
We also like it’s small size. The Stick is also compact with dimensions of just 1-by-2-by-5.77 inches.
“Bivystick allows you to send and receive text messages, share your location, track your path, send an SOS message in case of emergency, and access detailed weather forecasts when you are out of phone service. All of this seamlessly integrated with Bivy app and it’s database of more than 45,000 trails, climbing routes and waterways. Plus, recharge your phone 2- 3 times with the 6000 mAh backup battery so you can get that message out when needed. Not only will you feel safer while you explore new areas, your loved ones will sleep easily by keeping track of your location and status. It is the ultimate tool for the modern day adventurer. With Bivystick you Stay Safe and Found.”
The Bivy Stick is now live on Kickstarter with a retail price of $299.
