Next-generation Zebra WT6000 Proves Hands-free Mobility Can be comfortable
Zebra’s new WT6000 marks a bold step into the future of wearable computers. Although it boasts a long list of impressive features, its biggest selling point is just how deftly it combines hands-free mobility with comfort.
Zebra managed to make it lighter and smaller than the other wearables that are currently available. In fact, its ergonomic design is 27 percent lighter than Zebra wearable devices of the past and it has 36 percent less volume. The WT6000 weighs in at just 8.7 ounces and measures 4.7 inches long by 3.5 inches wide and is .7 inches deep.
Bring Productivity to New Heights
If you’re looking for a way to help productivity go through the roof, this is your solution. According to Zebra, the device can boost worker productivity by as much as 15 percent, and it accomplishes this with an impressive 39 percent fewer errors than the average speech-only wearable. The company boasts that the device can turn a workforce into “superheroes of productivity.”
The device ships with Android Lollipop 5.1 with Mobility Extensions (Mx), Because it uses an Android-based OS, training time is minimal, and it’s easy to manage out of the box. It can be paired with the RS4000 or RS6000 ring scanner, HS2100 or HS31000 headset, and Zebra’s TekSpeech Pro 4 software. Some of the accessories available include wrist mounts, wrist straps, and cradle installations.
Besides boasting better motion tolerance and an improved range, it also scans better and reads faster. It pulls all this off while still providing the durability you’d expect; it can survive multiple four-foot drops on concrete in varying temperatures. This makes it suitable across a range of industries, including warehouse management, manufacturing, retail, and transportation.
Quite simply, it’s one of the best hands-free devices on the market today,
