My Friday Favourite this week is MYNT ES – Keep Track of Your Things Near and Far.
What is it?
MYNT ES is the latest version of a tiny, physical Bluetooth tracker.
How can it help me?
The original Mynt – Smart Tracker and Bluetooth Remote Control device is a previous Friday Favourites of mine.
The new MYNT ES is the latest version of this Bluetooth smart tracking device. The MYNT ES is smaller than the original Mynt, lasts a year or more on a single battery and, unlike other Bluetooth trackers, has a replaceable battery.
I’ve written before about the Lessons I Learned from Losing my Laptop Computer and since that time, smart devices like MYNT ES have been important to me.
I have used MYNT ES to keep track of my travel rucksack. It’s so small that it could be attached to any object though — perhaps a keyring, or even a pet!
Once activated within the Android or iOS app, the Mynt App can be used to locate items if you lose or misplace them. If the device is within a 150-foot range, it will chirp to let you know where it is. If the device is outside that range, you will be given the last known coordinates.
The MYNT ES device is also supported by a community that can keep an eye out for your item. For instance, if you had an item stolen, you can flag that item as missing. Other MYNT users will then scan for your MYNT ES and alert you if they find it close to them.
How much does it cost?
The MYNT ES Bluetooth tracker costs from $14.99.
How can I get it?
You can find out more about MYNT at the Myntracker homepage.
