Review: CUBE Is a Bluetooth Tracker with a Twist

There are a lot of Bluetooth tracking gadgets vying for your money, but there are some specific things you should look for when choosing one. For example, the CUBE Tracker ($24.95) from Blue Sky Homes is water resistant and works with a replaceable battery. That means it's going to last longer than those other guys who have a non-replaceable battery and could get damaged in the rain or at the pool.

The primary purpose of the CUBE Tracker is to detect your gadgets using the free app, but the CUBE goes beyond that and serves as a Bluetooth shutter remote so you can take that selfie from 30 feet away. You can also use the button to find your phone. My only request would be to offer more color choices for every family member's gadgets.
