While most smartwatches available today tend to highlight their Internet connectivity, 'StarVox' is a smartwatch that stands out because of its capabilities when there isn't a signal around for miles. Designed for outdoor uses, StarVox offers a walkie-talkie and other features that aid adventurous exploration.

When hiking through the wilderness, cell signala can be spotty and Internet signals are often even worse. However, from a safety perspective, it is still essential to be able to communicate with one's hiking companions. Rather than carrying cumbersome handheld radios, StarVox has a walkie-talkie built in, letting outdoor hikers communicate through the press of a button.

The smartwatch comes with other handy features as well, such as GPS, a compass, and environmental sensors like a barometer and thermometer.
