A small, circular Bluetooth device that helps you find long-lost items. Too good to be true, isn’t it? TrackR claims “You’ll never lose anything again” when you have TrackR Bravo. This coin-shaped gadget helps you track important stuff. It may not be as useful and as loud as Tile, but it’s pretty cool to have.
How Does TrackR Bravo Work?
You can attach this physical tracker to your valuables. Once attached, download the TrackR app on your phones or computers. If you happen to lose the item, the app will help you find it by ringing an alarm. If the said device is out of tracking reach, trackR uses Crowd GPS to share its whereabouts.
TrackR Bravo Review: Spec Analysis
Small and lightweight, this plastic disc is of the size of a quarter. It comes with a circular loop, which is attached to a keychain ring. Weighing barely 0.3 ounces, it carries the stylish company logo and a backlit pairing button underneath it.
TrackR app works on both Android 4.4 and later versions, iPhone 4s and higher models, iPad 3rd generation and subsequent versions.
The device is powered by a standard CR1616 coin battery. You can replace it on yearly basis. You don’t have to recharge it every now and then. The downside is you can’t tell if the battery is dead. It could be troublesome if you happen to lose your possession right before the battery runs out. Nevertheless, it’s better than Tile that doesn’t come with a replaceable battery.
You can link this device with your phone and wallet. When the wallet moves out of range, both your phone and Bravo will ring the alarm. You can toggle these notifications by changing the settings.
A single device costs around $29. Prices go down as you buy more pieces.
