RAK7201 vs RAK612

Can someone tell me the difference between RAK7201 and RAK612? Doing a quick look, the only discernible difference I see is that RAK612 supports myDevices Cayenne and the battery life is 2hrs (vs 1hr for RAK7201). I’m leaning towards the RAK7201 for no apparent reason other than I see it being discussed more on this forum.

I’m a first time hobbyist and I want to be able to program the buttons to send data to AWS IoT. I’ll be using the RAK7268 Gateway as well. I’m also on a Mac and will be using CoolTerm to program the Wisnode Button.


I am learning how to program the RAK7201 button and I am also using CoolTerm. I would be very much interested to hear about your experience with AWS IoT and what kind of programming you did.

Please share if you can.

Thank you :slight_smile:
