Every task worker without mobile access to relevant information and the rest of your workforce is forced to take more steps and more time to complete tasks, eroding operational efficiency. Now, connecting your disconnected workers is easy with Zebra’s WS50 — the world’s smallest Android enterprise-class wearable mobile computer. It’s rugged, modular and at home everywhere — from manufacturing and warehousing to retail and hospitality. It’s versatile — this flexible computing core is modular, allowing you to choose the mount that’s right for the job: wrist, back of hand or two-finger. It’s small but mighty, packed with powerful business class voice and data features that drive productivity and accuracy into every task. It’s lightweight and ergonomic, comfortable and never in the way. And with no host device required, it’s the first of its kind, offering powerful data capture with single device simplicity.

virtually any task worker in practically any industry. The WS50 can be worn on a wrist, two fingers or the back of the hand.


Better connect your workforce with push-to-talk (PTT) and task management applications

All models are PTT ready, enabling managers and workers to instantly collaborate for faster issue resolution and increased staff productivity. All models also support task-management applications, enabling better staff utilization and management.

High-resolution camera for light barcode scanning and photo capture

A 13 MP camera in the wrist-mounted model supports occasional barcode scanning and can capture detailed photos to document proof of condition and more.

Advanced enterprise-class scanner for intense barcode scanning

The converged two-finger-and back-of-hand mount WS50 models include Zebra’s SE4770 imager, delivering superior data capture performance. Scan virtually any barcode in practically any condition, as fast as you can press the trigger — even if they are damaged or poorly printed. Superior motion tolerance enables the capture of barcodes, even if scanner and barcode are in motion. No need to depress the trigger for every scan — scan continuously with an optional integrated proximity sensor.
