To help you get started on bluetooth finders or trackers, or whatever you call them, I’ve put together a collection of the main contenders.
My moneys on the Chipolo, until I change my mind.....and when I decide I will update this review page.....(1 Jan 2014)
Update: - I've now been swayed towards the Pebblebee..(video below)...(March 2014)
Update September 2014: I now think it could be the Bringrr, video is on Bluetooth Finders Part 2
Update March 2015 : - I now think the Beewi Smart Tracker!
