Telstra jumps on the wearables bandwagon

Now selling wearables outright and on contracts

Telstra is ranging 10 different wearables as of today and plans to expand the range to 12 by Father’s Day.

Wearables and fitness bands from Jawbone, Fitbit, Garmin, Huawei and Samsung, among others, are being ranged by the telco.

Most customers can purchase them outright, though Telstra customers with an existing Go Mobile Plan can add them to their existing 12 or 24 month contract.

Telstra’s director of devices, Andrew Volard, said wearables were a disruptive technology here to stay.

“I’ve seen a lot of trends come and go in the consumer tech space and there’s no doubt in my mind that wearables are here to stay. They are the most exciting technology to launch since smartphones and have huge potential now and in the future to change the way we live.”

All 370 Telstra stores nationally will dedicate retail space to the wearables.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
