BOZEMAN, MT (Feb 22, 2016) – No cell service? Separated from your group? Battery is low and there is no way to contact anyone? We all feel this frustration when encountering no service. Today a new hardware startup, Beartooth, is launching pre-orders for their off-grid communication device ensuring you’re always connected with those around you. With Beartooth, users can talk, text, and find friends on a map, all without cell service or Wi-Fi. Beartooth, which is slightly larger than a deck of cards, pulls double-duty as a backup battery for your smartphone.

Unlike traditional handheld radios that are cumbersome and difficult to use, Beartooth pairs with your smartphone to quickly and simply connect with other Beartooth users in range. No need to worry about confusing channel settings, radio protocols, and button sequences. All of Beartooth’s powerful functionality is available at the touch of a finger in a format easily recognizable to the user. Download the app, pair the device, and go explore.

“Beartooth was born in Bozeman at Bridger Bowl Ski Area. Company cofounder, Kevin Ames, and I were separated with no service. After several hours we finally re-connected and promptly started working on a solution,” said Michael Monaghan, Beartooth CEO and cofounder. “Kevin is a former smokejumper and radio communications operator who spent his career working in environments with no cellular or Wi-Fi service. It was natural to enable the smartphone carried daily to communicate off grid.”

Whether you are skiing fresh powder in the backcountry or dancing at Coachella, you can now reliably stay in contact with your group in ways that were previously unavailable. During the limited 30-day pre-order campaign, Beartooth is available for $249 per pair, 40% off the MSRP of $399.

Beartooth specifications:

  • 2.44in x 4.0in x 0.49in
  • 4.5oz
  • 3000 mAh Li-ion battery
  • USB Type-C charge port
  • Sub-1GHz license free bands
  • Works with iOS and Android Phones
  • Average range of two miles

Beartooth features:

  • Individual and group push-to-talk voice
  • Individual and group text messaging
  • Automatic or on-demand GPS location sharing
  • Offline maps: High quality 24k topographic and street maps
  • Battery backup: Recharge your smartphone

Beartooth will start shipping to US customers late 2016. Pre-orders can be placed at www.beartooth.com.
