TrackR — Similar to how we depend on our phones to remember phone numbers and important appointments for us, TrackR remembers where your stuff is so you can get on with the business of living, knowing you always have what’s important. By attaching a TrackR bravo device to all your valuables — keys, wallets, even pets — you are employing a little memory butler to keep track of all of your things. This not only frees up space and time for you to focus on more important things, but it also  gives you peace of mind knowing that your belongings will always be accounted for. With TrackR’s Crowd GPS network, TrackR customers also have the comfort of knowing that an item is never truly lost. Any time another TrackR user is within range of a lost item, the user will receive an update with the last known location of the missing item. TrackR also recently launched an Amazon Alexa integration that allows anyone with the TrackR app to locate a misplaced phone even if it is on silent mode. TrackR devices are available at www.TheTrackR.com and select retail outlets worldwide.
