An Awesome Hands-on: Airwheel Intelligent Self-Balancing Scooter S3
Distinctive design is the key focus and crux of a successful product. Airwheel S3 as the latest groundbreaking hit on market has redefined industry standard with its optimal interplay of distinctive design elements. Let’s take a look at the newly launched Airwheel S3.
Airwheel arranged an electrifying test drive after its product launch on 22nd Sept. The Airwheel S3 features slim and ingenious design: the fresh white-blue color matching with sportive front and rear light design that would be a familiar match on a top sport car. Mounted with an eye-catching magnified 5.5in human-machine interface, Airwheel S3 as a whole delivers concise and comfortable essence. Rarely regarded as a regular electric scooter or a car, Airwheel S3 will for sure to win you 200% second glance rate when steered on any road.
According to official specs, Airwheel S3 can cover a range up to 65km. As a volunteer tester, I didn’t ride that long, however the moment when I stepped on and held on to its control shaft, I felt as great as I was driving a handling car. It travelled faster than average unicycles and conducted more agile turning motion without much change on your body movements. Based on the latest gyro-system, it just run smoothly with the comfortable , like an electric car.
Powered by a latest mag-lev motor, steering experience on S3 is solid and stable. In addition, S3 is controlled by a leading chip which minimizes latency. Another mostly raised concern is the comfort, unlike unicycles, riders don’t have to straddle and press legs against the unit to control it. Instead, they just stand relaxed on the widened platform and control S3 by moving the handlebar, which ensures the comfort even when travelling a long distance.
I’ve also tried the remote key in the test drive, which could turn on and off the unit remotely as remote car keys. Thanks to the magnified LED indication panel, you’ll get a clear idea of the real-time speed, mileage, battery level and temperature, which is very handy and helpful. Moreover, compared with similar products, S3 makes a difference by integrating Bluetooth function, which allow you play songs in your smart phone on its dual bass speakers when connected. Enjoy your tuned trip!
Safety goes first. Airwheel S3 comes with same safety protection measures as other Airwheel products, e.g. Low Battery Protection, Tilting Protection, which assists starters in controlling the speed and better coordinating with the unit.
