The ShockWatch RFID is an impact indicator incorporated with a passive RFID chip in every unit which can be scanned using a standard RFID reader to detect any damage before entering the assembly line. This allows companies to rely on the inventory tracking benefits of RFID and its impact monitoring program. Just like the ShockWatch 2, the ShockWatch RFID is field-armable and tamperproof. It also provides visual alerts to users upon the detection of mishandling or damage by turning red from white.

The RFID technology is capable of improving inventory tracking processes in the supply chain and reduces damage up to 60% without the need for batteries and wires. Armed with data, it is possible to track the trouble spots in the supply chain and make changes for improvement. The impact indicator enables users to be notified of any potential damaging impact made. If the ShockWatch RFID has been activated, the receiver will be alerted for inspection. Otherwise, shipment can be moved into saleable inventory.
