The TrackR Helps Find Your Personal Items

"Tired of losing your keys, wallet and phone? " Alas, the TrackR will help solve this dilemma. By attaching a coin size device on your most-valued items such as a purse, wallet or keys, or even the family dog or cat, you can locate lost or misplaced items (or pets) within 100 feet by connecting to the device through the TrackR app, available on iPhone, iPad and Android. If your phone is lost, press the button on the TrackR to ring your phone, even for silent mode.

Among the TrackR features are a distance indicator- used by the TrackR app to determine if you are getting closer to your item, item ringer- tap to make TrackR ring your missing item, family sharing- you can track and ring a specific TrackR from multiple phones, crowd locate network- if another user is within Bluetooth distance of your lost item, you will receive a location update, separation alerts- custom separation alerts warn you of leaving your phone, etc., wallet-thin design- anodized aluminum construction Amazon Alexa integration- just say, 'Ask TrackR to find my phone' and Alexa will ring the device for you.

To personalize your TrackR devices the following perks are available: Custom laser engraving, custom image printing, accessories, water-resistant case and a metal carabiner. Another significant feature is the TrackR atlas, which "works with your TrackR devices to show where your items are located within your home."

The TrackR can purchased online or at Frys, Best Buy, Staples, Soft Bank, Selfridges&Co., Brookstone, Currys, B and Argos.
