Never Lose Your Wallet or iPhone Again Thanks to TrackR

Never Lose Your Wallet or iPhone Again Thanks to TrackR

I've been using TrackR Bluetooth locater tags for a while and they keep getting better. The quarter-sized gizmos attach to your valuables and help you keep track of them, using Bluetooth and the free companion app. TrackR has also built up a healthy "Crowd GPS" network so, thanks to other TrackR owners, you can find your devices. Now, through a partnership with Ekster Wallets, TrackR can help you track your wallet, too. This is a nice touch, unlike Trackr's previous method, which required adding a bulky Bluetooth tracking tag to your wallet.

“When a wallet is as small as the Ekster smart wallets, it makes it easier to misplace. That is why we chose to embed TrackR’s market leading technology into our wallets,” said Ekster co- founder Oliver Momma. 

In fact, Ekster prides itself on making quality, slim, trackable wallets with features like RFID blocking and easy access. Now, with the Trackr integration, you can keep track of your high-tech wallet using the same convenient Trackr app and Crowd GPS that you use for other Trackr devices. 

It's important to be able to track your wallet, not just because of the contents but because the wallets aren't exactly cheap, starting at $99 on Indiegogo. The wallets have another trick up their sleeve: you can find your phone using a paging button built in to the wallet and take advantage of separation alerts in case you leave one of the items behind. So your wallet can save you even more, if it saves you from losing your iPhone!
