Motorola Solutions launches new body-worn camera with detachable 12-hour battery

Motorola Solutions has announced the launch of the WatchGuard V300 body-worn camera, which is designed to address law-enforcement's need for cameras that remain operational beyond a 12-hour shift.

It can operate continuously due to the inclusion of swappable battery packs, 128 GB of memory and secure wireless uploading. The WatchGuard V300 will become part of the Motorola Solutions mission-critical ecosystem of unified voice, data, video and analytics.

“Battery life is the single biggest issue for agencies operating body cameras,” said John Kedzierski, senior vice president of Motorola Solutions’ Video Security Solutions group. “Historically, body cameras could not be used beyond a full shift until they were charged for 4 hours. The WatchGuard V300 allows officers to snap on a spare 12-hour battery pack to seamlessly extend operation into overtime, extra shifts or part-time jobs.”

The WatchGuard V300 has been developed to enable cameras to be pooled between law-enforcement officers, so agencies may purchase fewer cameras than they have officers. A camera can be returned at the end of one shift, electronically reassigned and immediately checked out with a spare battery pack to another officer.
