SeaTalkie connecting in UHF radio band. Thus SeaTalkie can connect to other walkie talkies. Furthermore, Different walkie has different features. Some have further transmit range, some have larger batteries, some are louder in speaker. And SeaTalkie is featured strongly in waterproof, simply operating and mounting accessories for sports.

The above range is the connection between SeaTalkies. If you want a longer range, you could use a higher power and higher sensitivity walkie to connect SeaTalkie.

  We developed a new method to enhance waterproof function. There is no coverings, thus SeaTalkie is "always waterproof".

More detail about the waterproof technology on the youtube below:

It is the concept of "User experience" design. Most user only need the PTT (push to talk) button during activities.So it is not necessary to put all the buttons on the walkie. Thus we just reserve 3 buttons on SeaTalkie, the other functions are set by smart phone apps. These can simplify the design, smaller in size, and the most important thing is that, users will not press the wrong button during exciting activities, especially for children.

---

Forget the thick user manual.
SeaTalkie is configured with smart phone app with graphical interface. Another advantage is that the app is upgradable.

 See the below youtube for more details
