If you’re looking for your phone, which is lost somewhere in your bag, all you have to do is call it and find it. What if you lose your keys or wallet? Now, you won’t have to resort to the good old ways of putting everyone around you on a treasure hunt mission to track them down. Instead, you can just use a Bluetooth tracking device such as the TrackR to find the misplaced valuable. Basically, you pair the tracker with your phone and attach it to an item you are most likely to lose.
Over time, when it is lost, use an app to find it and it will emit a noise that will help you find it. These aren’t GPS trackers and work solely based on noise signals caused by the Bluetooth connection. Also the range is usually only 200 metres, so don’t expect it to start ringing if your wallet has been stolen and taken to another country.
