B$Z: Outdoor Tech Launches Walkie-Talkie App and CHIPS 2.0 Changing Helmet Audio and Communication
When a trip to the mountains serves up
conditions worth relishing, it’s not uncommon for friends to find
themselves on different slopes throughout the day. To keep everyone
connected without requiring them to lug around another cumbersome piece
of hardware, Outdoor Tech® has created a user-friendly Walkie-Talkie App
that allows the next generation CHIPS® 2.0 Wireless Headphones to
connect with one another through a mountain-friendly push-to-talk
The CHIPS® 2.0 will be upgraded with an embedded Bluetooth Low Energy chip allowing a simple push and hold (with your gloves or mittens on) to engage the app for seamless communication. The range is limitless, as are the use cases; families, ski schools, and even cyclist can rock the incredible audio quality of the CHIPS® and be able to communicate, without ever having to take their phones out of their pockets.
Designed to fit universally with nearly any
helmet, Outdoor Tech’s patented Bluetooth wireless CHIPS® headphones
have given thousands of winter storm chasers and cyclist the chance to
stay connected without being tethered. The CHIPS® allow users to play,
pause & skip tracks, adjust volume, answer calls, and even interact
with Siri thanks to a built-in microphone and a simple two-button
The updated CHIPS® 2.0 and Walkie-Talkie App will be available for 2016/17 winter season online at OutdoorTechnology.com and Outdoor Tech retailers.
