Bottom line

Ortovox S1+ (or S1 plus) is the top beacon on the market currently. The upgrades and improvements from the S1 avalanche beacon are in software as well as hardware. And with incorporating the smart antenna technology that was first included in the 3+ unit this new beacon claims a spot for one of the most advanced avalanche beacon on the market.

Use(r) suitability

Ortovox S1 plus, just like the S1, is suitable for a wide range of users but more experienced users will be more likely to take full advantage of all of its features. If you are a beginner then you might be “overpaying” by buying this avalanche beacon.
