What is TrackR Bravo?
Measuring approximately 31mm in diameter, the TrackR Bravo is a coin-sized device made anodized aluminum that you can attach to your valuables. It works with your phone’s Bluetooth technology to track your devices within a 100-foot range. The device is powered by a CR1620 battery which the company says can last up to a year. I haven’t had my device that long so I can’t say much on the battery life.
If you have ever had an iPhone then you probably know about the “find my iPhone” feature. The TrackR Bravo is designed to work the same way except you can use it to track just about anything.
When you purchase the device which comes in four colors: black, standard silver, rose gold, and blue, you also get a water resistant case, a metal carabiner and a pet collar attachment. This means that you can attach the device to petty much anything and even track your pet’s location.
How Does The Device Work?
The first thing you need to do when you get your TrackR Bro tracking device is to download the associated TrackR app from either iTunes of the Google Play store. You’ll then pair the app on your phone withe the device itself.
The next step is to attach the device to your valuables or items that you commonly misplace. Perfect examples of these would be your wallet, car keys, or you could attach it to items that may get stolen such as your bike. Just add the device where someone wouldn’t be able to see it.
Within the app is a map which tells you the distance you are from your items and you can then press a button on the app and it will then ring the item so you can easily find it. In the case where your item is outside of bluetooth range, for example if someone stole your bike, the TrackR App uses a crowd GPS feature to locate your items.
