We’ve all experienced it before. As you’re rushing out the door in the morning, you just can’t seem to find your backpack or laptop charger. While that may result in you stumbling into work a few minutes late, imagine if those precious minutes had cost you a flight or important interview.
Successfully funded on Kickstarter and available now, these tracking devices are essential tools for anyone who finds themselves hunting for their belongings more than using them. The Mu Tag easily attaches to keychains, bags and other items using a fob, a holder or 3M adhesive. Simply clip it to a zipper, stick it to a charger or hide it in your bag and make all your possessions that much more difficult to lose. Basically, anything that has an inch to spare is trackable with this tiny Bluetooth device.
Once it’s attached, download the Informu app, add the to your dashboard, and you have an easy way of keeping track of your essential belongings. Each tag has a rechargeable battery that will last for three weeks on a 40-minute charge, so you can set it and forget it for days at a time.
With your purchase of the , you’ll receive four tags in your choice of black, orange, red or blue; a charger; one fob to make a tag waterproof; one Mu holder; and a user manual. After you install the app, you’ll be able to easily track your belongings and be notified if you leave anything behind using the built-in map.
