Cobra Tag is an ingenious Bluetooth gadget that will help ensure that you never again leave your smartphone or car keys behind. This clever device uses Phone Halo Technology, a smartphone app and a small key fob device. Users simply download the app and then attach the fob to the object they want to protect (can a purse or laptop as well as car keys). If the distance between the smartphone and the fob becomes too great, an alarm will sound.
The Cobra Tag also can record the time of day and GPS coordinates to mark exactly when and where a loss occurred and then send this information to a preset e-mail, text message, Facebook or Twitter account. The device also includes a two-way find feature that lets you press a button on the fob to find your smartphone, or use the app to find the fob.
Cobra Tag is one of the next generation of devices that integrate wireless technology. Popular Mechanics has given it an Editor’s Choice award and it’s sure to be a popular gift during this year’s holiday season. Find out more about Cobra Tag on the Cobra Electronics website.
