How frequently do you leave your keys, backpack, and/or purse behind without even realizing it and spend countless hours trying to find your misplaced item(s)? In the fast-paced world that we live in, it can be easy to misplace your most valuable possessions. With ANKR, a multi-purpose tracking device, you can now keep track of your most valuable items by attaching ANKR to your key ring or stuffing ANKR in your backpack and/or purse.

After attaching ANKR to your most valuable possessions, keeping tabs on those items has never been easier. ANKR is a low energy Bluetooth device that allows you to keep track of your valuables via an app on your iPhone.

Setting up ANKR is super simple. Once you attach ANKR to an item you don’t want to lose, like your keys, for example, the next step is to register ANKR with the app on your iPhone. After registering your device, your phone will keep in constant communication with your ANKR device via Bluetooth to make sure you don’t leave your most valuable item(s) behind.

You can even set up “safe zones” for your device, which basically means that you won’t get an alert when you put your stuff down inside the zone. The app allows you to add as many ANKRs and safe zones as you want and lets you check the battery level of your device, which lasts anywhere from 6 months to a year via a replaceable coin cell battery. You can even “ping” your ANKR device via the app if it’s in Bluetooth range of your phone. However, if your ANKR device is not in Bluetooth range of your phone, the app will only show you the last location of your device.

ANKR comes in handy if you frequently lose things or just want to keep track of something valuable. For less than $25, you can get your own ANKR device, which I promise you will never regret!

There are so many tracking devices on the market today. Which tracking devices, if any, have you used? Have you tried ANKR? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section down below and don’t forget to give me a shout on Twitter – @malloriedeaton.
