So just how thin is the tracking device?. Well it comes in with a width of just 3.5mm and diameter of 34mm. Despite it being so small it is said to have one of the biggest Crowd GPS networks. What this means is that even though the tracking device has a range of just 100 feet, if there is another TrackR user in the range of the item lost by another user, an alert gets relayed to the user of the lost item.

The TrackR bravo comes with a feature that sets it apart from others by way of two way separation monitoring. This means that the tracking device can be used to locate an object via the mobile app that users can get to use with it. Users can also use the “ring” button on the tracking device to help them find their misplaced phone, by making that phone ring.

If the tracking device thinks that you are walking away from the item that you are tracking, it will also alert the owner. Should the owner walk away and out of range of the item that is being tracked, a notification will show up on the handset to warn them. Another useful feature on the TrackR bravo is that is has a distance indicator. This means that the device is able to tell the owner the rough distance they are away from the item they are trying to find.
