Handheld Unveils the RS60 Ring Scanner, a Wearable Device Designed to Improve Logistical Efficiency

By CIOReview | Wednesday, September 15, 2021

The RS60 Ring Scanner Handheld is all about efficiency and portability. It may be worn on either hand, allowing workers to increase output while maintaining free hands.

FREMONT, CA: Handheld Group, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers, unveils the RS60 Ring Scanner, a hands-free scanning solution ideal for warehouses, retail, distribution, and other environments that require highly mobile scanning. This is the second gadget in Handheld's newly launched wearable series, following the SP500X ScanPrinter, announced earlier this month.

“The new RS60 ring scanner is all about efficiency and mobility. It can be worn on either the right or left hand so workers can maximize productivity while keeping their hands free,” says Johan Hed, Handheld director of product management. “Rather than holding a scanning device, a ring scanner is wearable and lets warehouse workers simply point and click, leaving them free to also move products and packages.”

The RS60 ring scanner's primary characteristics include the following:

The efficiency of a conventional scanner combined with the ease of a hands-free wearable

A lightning-fast two-dimensional imager scans barcodes precisely while in motion

To connect, tap any NFC-enabled device or scan a barcode.

BT Class 1 enabled workers to communicate with devices up to 100 meters (300 feet) away.

IP65 dust and water resistance, working at temperatures ranging from 0 to 50°C, and capable of withstanding several drops to concrete

The runtime of up to 11 hours

Accessories geared toward businesses, such as a four-slot charging station and an eight-slot battery charger

“Enterprises have increasingly seen the value of equipping their workers with tools to maximize efficiency and mobility. Our new wearable line is designed to fit those needs,” says Thomas Löfblad, CEO, Handheld Group. “Handheld has always been about mobile computing, and we’ll be expanding our wearable product line further in the future.”


Devices are in stock and ready to ship immediately.
