Where can I use these watch radios?
Never have anywhere to put your walkie-talkies? These PMR radios can be worn on your wrist – perfect for festivals, outdoor sports events and camping. With their compact design, these two-way radios can reach up to 5km and come with a backlight LCD display. With their easy to use button menu you can even use these radio watches to tell the time. These two-way radios use the licence-free PMR 446 frequency band to communicate.
With no call plan or licence required, this is a great way to keep in contact when you’re camping or at festivals. If you need someone to respond, the radio comes with 10 modes for call tones. For more covert conversations or to cut down on ambient noise you can even connect a compatible headset.

What is the range on these PMR radios?
These radios can reach a range of up to 5km in open conditions with no obstacles between the units. Built up areas or objects between the units will cut down on their range. These radios are perfect for outdoor activities or even at work – anywhere where you may need your hands or to have the radios attached securely.

How many frequencies do these two-way radios have?
Never struggle for a clear frequency – each unit has 8 channels which have 121 privacy codes for a total of 968 privacy combinations. They come with voice activated transmission (VOX) for hands-free transmissions. Roger beeps can used to give a bleep after you’ve finished talking to let other know its fine to talk and can be switched or off. Using key lock, you won’t need to worry about accidentally changing your channel and missing a message.

How do I charge my radios?
When the batteries run low, simply plug in the charger and let the internal rechargeable batteries replenish themselves. Don’t get caught out with the battery level meter in on the LCD screen and battery power saver to extend the battery life. The watch radios can do up to 20 hours on a full charge and up to 72 hours on standby.

These two-way radios are compatible with most PMR 446 units with the same channel and privacy combinations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great little radios plus a watch I was pleased and surprised at these great little gadgets. Good reception and functionality. We use them on our narrow boat between bow and stern and locks and boat. Work well. Have not tested any extreme range as yet as don't really need it. A bargain as we got them on offer 1\2 price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome little things - but beware the watch-strap Nicely presented in a foam lined box these little radios are surprisingly cool. There is an issue with strap, which I will elaborate on later. The radio is a very capable PMR446 transciever with standard 8 channels with CCTSS privacy codes, SCAN, VOX (yes it does, despite what the QandA says), call tones, battery saver ( which appears to just shut off the radio after about 10 mins) and a single setting non-adjustable scrambler (voice inversion) which hinders eavesdroppers. ( As with all these radios, if you don't want someone to hear what you say... Don't say it over the air!) It is cool but can be decoded easily if you know how or have a radio with a decoder. The backlight is orangey red, and there is a headset which plugs in via a 3.5mm headphone style socket. Charging is done by this socket also. If you want to use the headset, you will need to run the cable up your sleeve to avoid tying your arm to your head. The antenna is a small rod which can be tilted up for more range. The watch sits on the wrist quite well, but would not comfortably fit a child because their wrists are too small. Sound is a little tinny but the speaker is the size of a 2p so what do you expect?. Now for the important bit, the strap. It is a thick rubbery plastic watch strap. I purchased my radio and the strap just fell to pieces in under an hour. Maplin refunded, and I got another set from another store. 40 minutes later the same thing happened. There is a problem with a batch of these, mine were purchased from Kidderminster and Worcester. Maplin offered to refund / replace again, but I declined, because the radio is so funky I wanted to keep it. Thinking the problem may exist nationwide, and as a radio ham, I decided to repair it myself. So when / before you buy the radios, inspect them. Look at the strap. Feel it. Is it sticky? Does it have a waxy, blotchy appearance? I suspect they got the formula wrong for the straps and the plastic has not been stabilized properly. It can't be all of them because Maplin were not aware of the problem. If its too late and you got some and lost the receipt or they are out of warranty, inspect them. The plastic may eventually turn to sticky tar like goo, so if they are going, remove them before they damage everything else. The good news is the strap can be replaced with a decent watch strap (yes it can.) I will be putting a youtube video up in a couple of weeks documenting the problem and how to change the strap. I have put a decent leather strap on mine and now it works as intended. So, all in all, I can't fault Maplin as they did offer refunds etc, I am frustrated that I paid full price for a defective product (even though that was my choice) but on the positive side I feel satisfaction that I have turned it to a positive outcome and can share with others how to repair their radios should the strap break through either defect or normal wear and tear. The problem with the strap plastic does not apply to the rest of the radio, which is made of a different type.

The manual talks about a "scrambler mode" which is by default ON, and gives details how to switch it off.  What kind of scrambling is taking place (I can handle a proper technical reply)?

Asked by: PDJR
The transmitted signal is digitally altered using a preset numerical algorithm, the reciver unit has the same decode algorithm hard coded inside it and just unscrambles the data before converting it to audio. It's worth noting that these are budget range walkie talkie watches, you are not going to have military grade encode algorithms built in, it's just a simple scramble to prevent unauthorised listeners.

OK, so, I am a 'senior' so cannot read the very small print in the 'manual'. I have managed to set up date and time, firstly how can I display the date briefly.

Asked by: Amicipat
Please download the manual from the downloads tab you can then zoom into the digital copy as far as needed.

Are these compatible in terms of frequency with other hand held 2 way radios? Eg Motorola TLKR range

Asked by: Bill
Unfortunately we can only guarantee compatibility between a set of the two watches.
