Somewear can actively detect and default to cellular and wi-fi networks when in range, thus preserving valuable satellite data. It’s simple to use and lent us maximal peace of mind on a recent backcountry adventure!

The signal is stronger, and unlike GPS networks, covers every inch of the globe—from the polar ice caps to the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
