Outdoor Tech Makes Debut with Madison at iceBike* in UK

Outdoor Tech - Stuff You Probably Want

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 20, 2014) – What better way to form a deal than over a drinking game at ISPO, which is exactly what went down between Outdoor Tech and Madison Distribution last month. Not only did ODT take the game; they ultimately won in a much bigger way in that Madison is now the official Outdoor Tech distributor for the UK and Ireland. With a firm grasp in outdoor products and established connections within the UK technology market, Madison is sure to boost Outdoor Tech’s international presence in a big way.

“Outdoor Tech is beyond stoked to have Madison be its exclusive distributor in the UK,” says VP of International Sales, Bobby Ali. “Madison is a top distributor and has helped build great brands in the UK like GoPro, Thor, Shimano and Garmin to name a few. Outdoor Tech has a very wide range of wireless audio products that sell into a wide array of distribution channels, and it is rare to find one distributor that excels in all these channels like Madison.”

Outdoor Tech and Madison ”I don’t remember much about a drinking game, but Madison is über stoked about being the exclusive Outdoor Tech distributor in the UK and we believe the brand has massive potential,” says Dominic Langan, CEO of Madison.

Madison UK Distributor

Outdoor Tech will be making its debut into the UK market at Madison’s iceBike* 2014 trade show, February 25th – 27th.  For more on this event, go to www.icebike.co.uk. To see the entire line of rugged, Bluetooth wireless audio products by Outdoor Tech, check out www.OutdoorTech.com.

Shields Up!: Protecting Your iPhone

It has been said that the easiest way to ensure your phone stays in good condition is to avoid breaking it. Unfortunately, there are instances when you may accidentally toss or drop your stuff. This is why you should have measures for protecting your precious smartphone from the dangers of everyday living.

Films

Anti-glare film is a preferred protective add-on to your iPhone. Not only do you protect your screen from scratches and the innate oil in your hands, but you also shield your eyes from the screen glare. Some go the extra mile and use full-body wraps instead to avoid scratching the sleek casing of the iPhone.

Wireless gadgets

Wireless devices actually help protect the iPhone in a very practical sense. If you have a pair of earphones connected to the iPhone, you would have to take it from your pocket just to change tracks. For the clumsy owner, this poses the risk of dropping the gadget while trying to get it.

The great thing about wireless devices is that you get rid of this trouble, thus keeping your gadget safe inside your pocket or bag. Our wireless earphones, headphones, and adapters make sure that you won’t have to touch your device just to switch music tracks or take calls. Not only do you free yourself from the extra chore, but you also protect your beloved iPhone.

In the context of outdoor activities such as biking or skiing, wireless technology is definitely invaluable.

Waterproof cases

Water is the bane of all electronics, but you don’t have to avoid it if you love gadgets. Thanks to waterproof cases, it’s now easier to jump in the swimming pool without worrying that you’ll fry the wiring of your device.

We offer the Safe 5, our take on a waterproof case for the iPhone 5. We ensure that this product can protect your phone from being submerged in water for up to three feet for 30 minutes, as it has the IPX-7 rating. All buttons are completely functional and accessible – we even have a waterproof gasket to allow charging without removing the case.

At Outdoor Technology, we specialize in gadgets that help you stay connected without being tethered, and we protect phones too. Feel free to check out our products and services on our website or contact us for any inquiries.

No Strings Attached: Top Tips for Enjoying Your Wireless Speaker

For many years, wired communication systems have helped society advance in many ways. From communication lines to entertainment media, people have found great benefits in them. But while they are important in defining living standards, they too have limitations, such as limited connectivity. Fortunately, advancements in technology are starting to eliminate such hurdles. Though it seemed impossible at first, living “wireless” is a reality.

For music lovers, living wirelessly means they can enjoy listening to their favorite tunes without struggling with headphone and speaker wires. Users of our rugged Bluetooth speaker Buckshot can attest to that. They can do and achieve more things without the wires that used to hold them back.

Here are some of the ways you can enjoy your wireless speaker more:

Drive in style

Do away with your earphones if you’re driving. Use a wireless speaker instead if you want to listen to music from your Bluetooth-enabled device. The Buckshot has a range of up to 33 feet, which means it’s ideal for in-car audio listening. Put it on your dashboard or the passenger seat, and drive in style.

Explore the outdoors (with background music playing)

If you love exploring the neighborhood on your bike while listening to your music, you should get a wireless speaker. Music adds intensity and sets your mood while you bike. Buckshot has a bicycle handlebar mount accessory. Take your speaker anywhere you want. As it is dust and waterproof, you don’t have to worry about its protection. It’s just as rugged as your adventures.

Make hands-free calls while you’re at the park

Some wireless speakers like Buckshot have built-in call functionality. Use it as a mic whenever you have to place calls immediately, wherever you may be. You can call your friends, for instance, to meet you at the park. The speakerphone can last up to 16 hours of talk time, so you can chat with them as long as you want.

Don’t put limitations on what you can achieve. Use devices like wireless speakers, and do the things you’ve been meaning to do without leaving your music behind.

Techno Get-up: Making a Fashion Statement with Modern Devices

Having a fashion statement is a huge part of the modern lifestyle. It’s how people express themselves. From colored skinny jeans to tops with asymmetrical designs, everyone has the freedom to wear what they want, how they want.

Technology takes things a notch higher. People can accessorize not just with conventional arm bands or necklaces. With the variety of consumer electronics available, it’s easy to personalize your getup by adding some tech to it.

Here at Outdoor Tech, we believe that there are creative ways to express yourself, especially with fashion and gadgets. Check out these two items to know how you can make a statement:

Wireless Audio Speakers

If you like being in the outdoors, travelling, enjoying the sights and the experience, then you must have at least one wireless audio speaker. They come in many forms. For instance, CHIPS, our universal Bluetooth helmet speakers, are compatible with helmets. This means you can wear your helmet while you’re out on a bike ride, and still listen to your favorite music.

For those who are more expressive of their music preferences, there are speakers that can be mounted on bikes, golf carts, and more, like the multi-functional Buckshot. The portable wireless speaker is dust and water-resistant, and comes with a built-in microphone. As long as it’s paired with a Bluetooth-enabled device, you can make calls and speak through the wireless speakerphones.

Smartphone Case

The growing popularity of smartphones has paved the way for another fashion staple, phone cases. It’s not hard to see the reason behind it. You can pick one particular case for your phone, and then replace it with another when you don’t want it anymore.

But to make things more interesting, choose a smartphone case that is not just aesthetically-appealing, but also functional. For example, our waterproof iPhone 5 case, the Safe 5, gives the protection your device needs. It can stay submerged for three feet up to five minutes. This only means, you can take your mobile anywhere, even on your next beach adventure.

Express yourself as creatively as you like. You can start with these modern devices made for modern living. Browse our website to learn more about our wireless audio, systems, apparel line, and more.
