Onyx – Hands-Free Real-Time Communication | NewsWatch Review

SXSW 2016 – Tech Report

Phones, tablets, the internet, and pretty much all technology has connected us in ways we never could have dreamed possible. But with this endless connectivity and the ease of access to our devices we tend to look at our screens a bit too much. This can be both unsafe and just a hassle overall. For real-time communication that does not require constantly looking at your phone, check out Onyx by Orion Labs.

Onyx is a lightweight wearable device that connects to your phone via Bluetooth LE for instant voice conversations over any distance. Basically it is a wearable walkie-talkie but unlike other regular walkie-talkies this guy has unlimited reach and best of all – has no wires. So there is no reason to worry about if the person you are trying to talk to is too far away. Perfect for when you need to communicate but are doing something that you just can’t look away from. And what’s more is it is extremely simple to use. All you have to do is pair Onyx with your iPhone or Android smartphone. Then set up one or more groups of people you want to talk to by using the Orion app. Now just push the device and talk to your group and they will hear you talk through their Onyx. This is great in environments where real-time voice communication is important. It is ideal for times when you want to be alert, whether you are cycling, running an event or busy on a job site. The Onyx comes in 4 colors: black, silver, cobalt iridescent and rose iridescent.

Are you ready for easy, hands-free real-time communication? Pre-order 2 now for $249.99; the price will go up to $279.99 soon, while the Orion app is free to download on iOS and Android devices. Head to orionlabs.io to purchase the Onyx today.
