Zebra Launches Total Wearable Solutions

Zebra Technologies today introduced its Total Wearable Solutions, dedicated family of wearable devices built on the Android operating system (OS) and backed by Zebra Mobility DNA, with hands-free and speech-directed picking for warehouses.

The new multimodal solution delivers 15 percent productivity improvements, with a 39 percent reduction in errors.

Designed for inventory management, yard management, and picking and put-away applications in warehouse, manufacturing, and retail environments, Zebra's Total Wearable Solutions include the following:

  • The WT6000 Industrial Wearable Computer, featuring a touch display and tap-to-pair NFC technology to establish connectivity with Zebra's RS6000 Wearable Ring Scanner and HS3100 Headset as well as Zebra Bluetooth-enabled printers for increased productivity.
  • The RS6000 Wearable Ring Scanner with programmable line-of-sight LED colors to direct user activity as well as improved range and motion tolerance
  • The wireless HS3100 Headset, enabling speech-driven applications and voice communications along with superior noise cancellation technology.
  • Zebra's Mobility DNA suite, which includes TekSpeech Pro 4 multimodal speech-directed solutions.

The WT6000 wearable computer and RS6000 ring scanner share a common Zebra PowerPrecision+ battery – providing full-shift power, innovative battery management tools and simplifying battery management.

"Zebra's Warehouse Vision Report found that 72 percent of nearly 1,400 logistics professionals expect to use voice-directed picking solutions by 2020, up from just 30 percent in 2015. They recognize the need to help workers focus on the task at hand rather than on handling a device," said Joe White, vice president of enterprise mobile computing at Zebra Technologies, in a statement. "By liberating warehouse workers' hands and eyes, Zebra's Total Wearable Solutions will improve productivity and enhance their mobility, comfort and accuracy with all the necessary information in sight."
