Very nice device for writers with some serious issues

The traveler is a great concept. I love the idea of being able to disconnect from the world and just write. But this device has so many issues:

First of all, it lags and it lags bad. I can be 5 or 6 worlds ahead, and the Traveler is still trying to keep up. This is extremely frustrating.

Second, why there is no battery indicator, is beyond me. I have to travel a lot and I do not know if my Traveler has enough charge or not.

Lastly, why do I have to constantly turn wifi on? There are many instances through out the day, where I get 10 or 15 minutes to write. I would love to be able to back up at the end of my writing session. Even if that session is 10 minutes long. The idea of me having to turn wifi on and then wait for it to back my work up is not productive to me.

Worth the cost

It took a while to arrive, but the Traveler is exactly what I wanted it to be when I ordered it. The cost is a bitter pill to swallow, but what you get is exactly what the marketing promises:

A device that forces you to disconnect from everything except for the writing that needs to be done.
The keyboard itself (the most important part in my opinion) is satisfying. There's enough tactility paired with how quick and easily your fingers can move across the keys. I'm coming from a split ergonomic keyboard with MX brown switches, and the keyboard on the Traveler is fantastic in comparison.

Awesome Travel Companion

I have gotten my Traveler and, in under a week, I have done 15K words on it. I am working on my first novel on it and been enjoying it. Especially after I learned through some experimenting that wire connection and 2.4 wireless keyboards work on the Traveler. Hence I can customize how I use my Traveler depending on my needs and wants. I made myself an at home setup with a hub to charge my Traveler while typing on my fave keyboard and still have the ease of use for traveling by taking it off the hub and go.

Hello Productivity

The Traveler has been such a game changer. Not only has it been more convenient than ever to write anytime, anywhere, but it's also made it so much easier to lock into my writing and stay focused. I'm no longer falling into the temptation to work on other things like I did with my laptop and progress on my stories has skyrocketed!

Great addition to my Freewrite Smart Typewriter

I decided to splurge and get a Traveller as well. I think the Smart Typewriter is amazing. But the Traveler is simply a game changer for my writing while out and about. Intuitive. Easy to use and my writing output has probably tripled or more in the last few weeks. I love it!

FAQ

FAQ

What is Traveler?

Traveler is a portable, distraction-free writing tool for serious and aspiring writers in a compact design that folds up to half the footprint of a laptop.

With an E Ink screen, automatic cloud syncing, and long-lasting battery, Traveler is the perfect everyday writing companion for writers on the go!

If I already have Smart Typewriter, should I get Traveler?

Both Traveler and Smart Typewriter offer distraction-free writing, but cater to different needs: Traveler is ideal for on-the-go writing with its compact design, while Smart Typewriter provides a tactile, traditional typing experience perfect for more stationary settings. If you're looking for a small, lightweight device for writing on the go, Traveler is the answer.

What type of screen does Traveler have?

Traveler has an E Ink screen and console display with an adjustable 135-degree viewing angle. Developed by E Ink and used by devices such as the Amazon Kindle, this technology mimics how ink looks on actual paper. Since it doesn’t produce blue light like traditional LCD screens, the Freewrite’s E Ink display is easy on the eyes, reducing eye strain and screen fatigue. E Ink screens also consume much less power, contributing to Traveler’s long battery life.

Does Traveler’s screen have a frontlight?

The Traveler's screen does not have a frontlight. While the E Ink display is easy on the eyes and clear to read in sunlight, you'll need to have an external light source for nighttime use. If you need a lit display, check out Smart Typewriter.

What type of keyboard does Traveler have?

Traveler boasts a full-size custom scissor switch keyboard. Specifically chosen for its superb tactile response, Traveler’s keyboard is high speed, responsive, and silky smooth. Each key has over 2mm of travel, which sets it apart from the typical laptop or folio membrane keyboards.

Does Traveler have arrow keys?

Yes. Traveler has WASD arrow keys to move within your drafts.

Can I change the physical keycaps on Traveler?

No, Traveler has a custom scissor switch keyboard, so the keycaps cannot be changed. If you’re looking for a device that will allow you to change the keycaps, check out Smart Typewriter.

Can I move documents to my computer without the cloud?

Yes, absolutely. And you can use Traveler entirely offline, if you'd like! Just connect Traveler to your computer via the included USB-C cable, and your Freewrite will appear as a USB Mass Storage Device. You'll be able to move your drafts to your computer as you would with any other flash drive.
