Wearable computer comes with more communication options

Eurotech launched the Zypad WL1500 series of wearable computers, an improvement over the company’s Zypad WL1000 and Zypad WL1100 products. The new wearable computer delivers a longer battery life and faster performances, is also features increased cellular communication functionalities and improved wearing comfort while providing a high IP54 protection rating.


Users can maintain connectivity through a full range of communication standards including 3G, CDMA and GPRS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The device features a built-in GPS that allows location-based referencing for the acquired data. Power conservation techniques and increased battery capacity allow the device to run for more than an eight hour shift.

Its unique hot swap functionality allows the user to change the battery on the fly, without losing any data. The Zypad comes with a 3.5" TFT touchscreen display at QVGA resolution with backlight control. Also included are an integrated microphone, mono-audio speaker and the ability to connect an external microphone. The wearable computer supports an optional barcode scanner as well as an external ring-scanner.

Other features include a Micro SD slot, 128MB of SDRAM Flash memory and a twelve-key keyboard with built-in backlight for easy viewing. The Zypad WL1500 is well suited for users who need instant access to information while still maintaining mobility, such as in emergency search and rescue, medical, homeland security, law enforcement, logistics, maintenance and transportation.
