Milo is a communication device that lets you talk with friends while kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, skateboarding, BMX, and snowboarding.

This hands-free, modern walkie-talkie allows action sports enthusiasts to chat in a closed group and doesn't need Wi-Fi or a cell signal to operate.

Milo combines wireless networking, audio processing, and hardware and is simple to use.

All you need to do is talk, and everyone in your group will hear you, even at a distance.

Actually, the maximum range between two Milo devices is 2,000 feet (600 meters), but software updates will extend the distance to one mile (1.6 kilometers).

The waterproof gadget will notify the user any time someone goes out of range or rejoins the group.

You don't have to push-to-talk. Milo will detect your voice.

It is equipped with six high-performance digital microphones and a powerful speaker

Milo operates in the ISM sub-GHz and 2.4 GHz bands and will not interfere with other radio gear like drones.

The battery will last a full day on a single charge and will take about 90 minutes to fully charge.

Wind-Noise Suppression

Milo will work perfectly in noisy outdoor environments. Its audio signal processing algorithms also suppress wind and other background noises.

All conversations are encrypted, private, and secure because the device uses a built-in communications protocol.

Milo comes with a clip that can be attached to almost anything.

The top outer shell is made of double-injection molded, custom-blend thermoplastic with a textured finish.

The bottom outer covering is a soft-touch elastomer that provides a comfortable, non-slip grip.

The internal and external shells are designed to withstand impacts in the toughest conditions, and the gadget can be submerged up to three feet (one meter) for 30 minutes.

Milo is easy to operate. All buttons may be pressed without looking.

You can mute the speaker, and you can mute the microphones via the main front button. This multi-way voice chat system can be connected to a Bluetooth headset.

There is also an optional app that allows users to unlock additional features.
