STRAP STUDIO® has developed a special „smart” watch strap and bracelet with integrated reflection technology in close partnership with RECCO®. It makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche or outdoor accident.
The RECCO® technology is utilized by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. Due to his personal experience with an avalanche tragedy, the RECCO technology was developed by Magnus Granhed in 1983, in cooperation with Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology.
Since then, the system has proven itself effective and has been adopted by an extensive network of ski resorts, helicopter skiing operations. It’s also been used by search-and-rescue organizations across Europe, Japan, North and South America.
The RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. There is no learning curve to use the RECCO® reflector and the watch strap and bracelet doesn’t need to be charged.
The smart STRAP STUDIO® RECCO® watch strap and bracelets are available in 20 and 22mm and collection. It has been manufactured with PREMIUM SCHOELLER® Water Resistant Outdoor Fabrics and is made of real KEVLAR® light reflective yarn. These materials are also used in the security, military and police sector.
STRAP STUDIO® incorporates this innovative technology into every RECCO® labelled watch strap and bracelet. Complementary in function, the technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with transceivers, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. This makes the RECCO® technology effective in organized search and rescue operations.
Transform any smart watch into a true “ski watch”! Our STRAP STUDIO® RECCO® watch strap and bracelets in connection with the smartwatch app SKI PURSUIT® by Rossignol® make it possible. Find out more about the app on the Ski Pursuit website.
Stay safe and have a great day!
