Take Somewear on your next adventure
No matter where your adventures take you, the Global Hotspot serves as a line to safety in your pocket. Messaging, tracking, and weather at your fingertips!
The Somewear experience for family and friends
When you send a message, your family and friends will receive the text message showcased. They can respond directly to the SMS or they can create a free Somewear account and download the mobile app for the most user friendly experience. Once they’ve downloaded the mobile app, they will no longer receive an SMS, instead they’ll receive a text directly within the Somewear app.
As soon as the Global Hotspot owner initiates a tracking session, you will receive an additional text notification. You’ll be able to select the link and see their real-time tracking as they go about their adventure. You no longer need to sit at home worried if they’ve made it back to camp.
What our customers are saying
The Somewear hotspot is an extremely easy-to-use global satellite messenger. Because all functions other than SOS work through an app, sending a message or coordinates is as simple as sending a text.
[Somewear] fills a fundamental gap in the satellite communications market… doing it in a lighter, more user-friendly way.

We’ve poured hours of work into a comprehensive and usually up-to-date chart that collates hardware and subscription options. When we crunch the numbers, the Global Hotspot is the best value option if you want two-way text messaging in the wild.
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.
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 app user interface is as clean as a whistle! It’s seriously dead-simple to use. If you’re accustomed to navigating your way through a smartphone, using the Somewear app is a breeze.
