Globalstar’s Spot brand has introduced a new two-way satellite-messaging device: Spot X. The handheld unit features a backlit keyboard, GPS location tracking, social-media linking and direct communication with emergency services. While out of cellphone range, anglers can also communicate with family and friends using Spot X: a unique, personal mobile number that allows either party to initiate conversation. The IP67-rated unit comes with all the functionality of the original Spot, including GPS Tracking and Check In. The rechargeable lithium battery lasts an average of 10 days when tracking. Spot X weighs 7 ounces and costs $249.99 (annual service plans begin at $19.99 per month).
