Wearable scanners can provide the hands-free scanning your workforce needs to maximize productivity. But today’s workers have high expectations for wearable devices — a modern design, a minimal footprint, so intuitive that virtually no training is required, plus point-and-shoot scanning simplicity on every barcode. Your business requires a design that’s just as at home in customer-facing areas as the warehouse, wearable options for maximum use case flexibility, a rugged design to ensure a long lifecycle with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), scanning options that match the needs of your environment, plus backroom accessories that reduce management time and cost. Now, you can have it all with the RS5100 Wearable Scanner. A comfortable, featherlight-yet-rugged industrial design that is at home anywhere in your facility. Zebra’s advanced scan engines for unmatched scanning performance. Five interchangeable wearing styles for user comfort and application flexibility. And features that drive ease-of-use and manageability to a new level.

Additional information


Tiny and practically weightless for extreme comfort

The small, light, low-profile RS5100 is purposefully understated at just over two ounces and two cubic inches — and the low-profile prevents obstruction when reaching into tight locations.

Freedom from cords and cables

With Bluetooth, there’s no cable to the host device for workers to manage — hands-free scanning improves comfort, usability and productivity.

Programmable LEDs provide line-on-sight user feedback

Multiple LEDs on the back of the RS5100 can blink to indicate whether a scan was successful and more.

Prevent the spread of germs with personal trigger assemblies

Since the trigger assembly is the only part of the RS5100 that touches skin, we created a modular two-piece design that separates the trigger assembly from the scanner body, providing the option to give each worker their own trigger.

Use with practically any Bluetooth-enabled device

Pair the RS5100 with a practically any Bluetooth host device, including smartphones, tablets and PCs. To unlock the RS5100’s more advanced features, pair to a Zebra enterprise-class mobile device — including wearable, handheld and vehicle mount.

Just tap for instant pairing

With NFC, workers can simply tap the RS5100 on NFC-enabled Zebra devices, such as the WT6300 wearable computer and the TC52 handheld mobile computer. No need to scan a pairing barcode or open Bluetooth settings to identify and select the device.

An advanced removable and replaceable battery — and more

The RS5100 is the only wearable scanner in its class that can support back-to-back shifts without recharging — just swap the batteries to keep it out of the charger and on the fingers of your workers. Choose from two PowerPrecision+ batteries. The standard battery lasts more than a full shift, providing 12 hours of power and 14,400 scans on a single charge. The extended battery powers longer shifts, enables operation in cold environments and provides a longer battery lifecycle. And with PowerPrecision Console, a no-cost Mobility DNA tool, you can spot and discard aging batteries that can no longer hold a full charge, ensuring that your RS5100 wearable scanners always have a healthy battery — and workers won’t run out of power during a shift.

Rugged scanner features

The RS5100 offers a best-in-class rugged design, with sealing, a drop specification and a tumble specification, ensuring reliable operation. It’s designed to handle drops, bumps, and even a high-pressure hose down. And the metal buckle and nylon straps on the finger mount won’t wear out or stretch like the hook-and-loop fasteners in some competitive devices, which only last a few months.

Minimize downtime with a maximum number of replaceable elements

The removable and swappable battery and trigger assembly are designed to minimize trips to the service depot and maximize lifecycle. And since the charge contacts and vibration engine are also integrated into the trigger assembly, you can replace all three components right on site, cost-effectively — and with virtually no down time.

Fast and accurate capture of virtually any barcode

Both scan engine options enable the near instant capture of even damaged, dirty and poorly printed 1D and 2D barcodes through PRZM Intelligent Imaging, a megapixel sensor and Zebra’s superior algorithms.

Save time and money with high capacity chargers

High capacity ShareCradles can charge 20 RS5100 ring scanners or 40 RS5100 batteries, cost-effectively reducing backroom cost and management time. For example, use just five high-capacity RS5100 ShareCradles to charge 100 scanners — instead of 100 USB charging cables.
