Lost wallet, keys or even a phone is probably on of the most common issue that we encounter in our lives. We all know how frustrating this is. It usually happens when you least expect and in some rare situation that causes you, even more, problems than if it would happen on your usual day.
Saturday's Afternoons in December are the worst!
It has been proven that stress fatigue and multitasking exacerbate our propensity to misplace or lose items. And if you think about it, it's actually quite logical. When you are finishing your last task at work, and you know that you only have 5 minutes left to catch a ride home, you answer your last call, grab all your stuff and run. Then you get home and you figure out that your house keys are missing. Not that surprising, that you totally forgot that you put them in your office drawer because you didn't want to accidently drop them when you went on a lunch break. According to statistical research, the peak time for losing things is on Saturdays at 6 PM. It seems like the transition from daytime activities to evening activities seems to create a perfect environment for loss. December seems to be the most dangerous month for losing things, next to July. Statistical data predicts that the highest chance of you losing something is at 6PM on Saturdays in December. So, beware of the upcoming Saturdays!

A Bluetooth Tracker will save your day!
If you miss an item, the best thing you could do in the past is trying to remember when you last had it then think about what you did after that. In the age of Bluetooth Trackers, this is much easier, because the app on your phone will do the hard work for you. So, if you’re missing your keys, just open the app and see where you last had them. If you’ll see your office address, you can relax because you’ll know that they are safe. If you still won’t find them when returning to the office, you will be able to locate them by sound and save a lot of precious time and nerves you’d otherwise spend turning your office upside down. And if it’s the phone you can’t find – you can use the tracker to ring your phone even if it’s on silent. In case your phone is not near, you can just use the online tracker’s app and see the exact location of your phone. Bluetooth Trackers are very recent inventions that will improve the quality of your everyday life. They are much cheaper than GPS trackers and the only downside is that they have a limited range of 200 feet (60 m). But that’s totally enough to keep track of your items like keys, wallet, and phone which are usually just misplaced somewhere near.

They are aware of the fact that replaceable battery is more important to some customers, so they decided to offer their Classic model, too. It has a replaceable battery but is not water resistant and it comes only in black and white color. You can get Chipolo Plus or Chipolo Classic for $24.99. If you buy bundles of them, you can get it from $16.59 per unit. Which is a pretty good deal, especially during the gifting season!
