Item-Ringer: If you can’t find your belongings, open the TrackR App and tap a button to make them ring. No more lost keys hiding in the couch! Phone Finder: If you lose your phone all the time, there’s no need to have another TrackR to find it. Simply press the button on the TrackR device to make your phone ring - even on silent mode! 2 Way Separation Alerts: If you leave your TrackR device behind, your phone will ring to notify you! This works in reverse as well! No more leaving your purse or wallet behind. Crowd GPS: When your device goes out of Bluetooth range and another user comes within range of your device, you will be updated of its new location on a map. Family Sharing: Share important items with friends or family so everyone knows where things are located. This little device tracker/finder is a useful concept. It uses Bluetooth with a phone app to connect with the tracker device, so you can use the app to make the tracker ring to find an object, or use the tracker to make your misplaced phone ring. This can also alert you when the tracker goes out of range of the phone. There are multiple limitations, however. You must be in Bluetooth range and you must have the Bluetooth connection active - if the tracker pairing is lost then you can't find it. You need to always have the app open, which means you are constantly maintaining a Bluetooth signal and using more of your phone battery power. This tracker is somewhat useful but you need to realize the limitations and consider if you would rather find an alternative that works with GPS. I would prefer something that you can activate to find a lost item only at the time you need it rather than something that is maintaining a constant Bluetooth connection. Since Bluetooth range is limited it might be more valuable now to design something that could use WiFi networks to be tracked if GPS isn't an option. Anyway, this TrackR device will be OK for some people's needs, though it has limitations. Also, it is about the size of a half dollar coin - not the size of coins that most people carry.
