Thanks to Motorola for providing me with product in exchange for my review. All thoughts are my own.
This holiday season my family is extra scattered. We all seem to be running around like chickens! I am so looking forward to January when we head to the beach for some much-needed family time & R &R! One of the fun things about the resort that we vacation at is that we are able to stay in a private family cottage which is integrated with the hotel on the beach. We're able to have the privacy we need and still enjoy the amenities of the resort. Sometimes, we wind up in different areas of the hotel and don't always want to carry our phones to the pool, etc- but still need a way to stay in touch.
TALKABOUT T100 SERIES
The Talkabout T100 Serious from Motorola is here- just in time for the holidays!
Motorola has been a part of my life for decades! I can recall countless home phones that were Motorola made being owned by my family. It's a name I've come to trust and rely on through the years. This season, we're staying in touch sans cell phones, thanks to the Motorola Talkabout T100 Two-Way Radios!
These compact radios are the perfect gift for those who love to stay active!
The handy Talkabout T100 radios come in either pink or blue. We went with the blue since I figured the boys would use these the most. I have found that I have enjoyed using them on my neighborhood walks, though. Carrying around my smartphone is a pain when I'm trying to get a fast-paced walk in, but this little radio is easy to carry or fits well inside of my pocket. I can easily switch on both radios- mine, and the one left with my husband, in case I need to communicate with him while I'm out and about in the neighborhood. I never leave the house without a way to call someone for help, if need be.
Simple, compact and easy to use by the entire family, the Talkabout™ T100 Series is the perfect way to stay in touch when out and about, whether at the playground, biking in the park or enjoying a picnic.
These colorful radios have a range of up to 16 miles and feature 22 channels, providing you with just what you need to instantly reach your family and friends, and know they’re safe.
Choose from the following:
T100, which includes two neon blue radios, two belt clips, and one user guide.
T100TP, which includes three neon blue radios, three belt clips, and one user guide.
T107, which includes two bright pink radios, two belt clips, and one user guide.
How far can I expect my radios to communicate?
The communication range quoted is calculated based on an unobstructed line of sight test under optimum conditions. Actual range will vary depending on terrain and conditions and is often less than the maximum possible. Your actual range will be limited by several factors including, but not limited to terrain, weather conditions, electromagnetic interference, and obstructions.
The radio is compact and fits in my pocket!
One of the main reasons that I was drawn to these 2-way radios, is that my 7-year-old son loves to play outside with his 13-year-old cousin. Neither of them has cell phones, and I want to trust that they'll be okay playing out in the yard alone, but I just don't trust other people. I know that I can switch on the radios and send one out with them, so they can easily communicate with me, and I with them.
When we head to the beach, we'll be able to use the radios to communicate between family units without having to take our phones with us to the game room, pools, sauna, etc. The fact that there is up to a 16-mile range on these is incredible!
With 22 channels, it’s easy to find an available channel.
Compatible with Any Radio
You can communicate with other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand by being on the same channel.
Flashing Low Battery Alert
The flashing low battery alert reminds you when batteries are running low.
The keypad lock prevents your personalized settings from being inadvertently changed.
Note: The T100 Series radios use 3 AAA batteries, which are not included.
The Motorola Talkabout T100 Two-Way Radios would make an amazing holiday gift for families, the adventurer, outdoor fanatic, older kids who aren't quite ready for smartphones but need a way to keep in touch, etc.
