    Proximo Key Fob Bluetooth Tracker is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! Although the concept is good, the reality was not. I was excited to find & purchase the product because I am always forgetting my phone so was very disappointed with the product when it didn't work as it should. The fob constantly disconnected even though I rebooted my phone at least once a day. My Bluetooth speaker connects & stays connected so I know it's not the phone. You have to have the app running in the background constantly so the phone's battery gets depleted faster. It would sound the alarm even though the fob was on my belt loop & my phone was in my pocket. I ended up removing the battery from the fob & deleting the app.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, but works randomly This product is a great idea for putting the fob on your key ring and linking it to your phone. If you've misplaced your phone you can push the button on the fob and it should make a loud sound on your phone until you find it. Same thing if you have your phone and can't find your keys - open the app on your phone and select find. But unfortunately it doesn't work without first opening the app on your phone and re-linking your devices and messing around with the settings - completely defeating the purpose if you're trying to find your phone! If they come up with an update to the app to fix this, it could be a useful item.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice thing if you constantly misplace your keys It can be used to find your keys with your phone, or to find your phone with your keys. I use it solely for the former because to use it as a phone finder, (1) you have to keep the app running on your phone all the time, which presumably requires extra battery power, and the battery life on my iPhone 5S has deteriorated quite a bit lately, and (2) the button on the key fob can be pressed accidentally while in your pocket, setting off the alarm on your phone. It works great to find the keys, but to be a good phone finder (aside from the batter-usage issue), it would be better if the button had some sort of locking device to avoid accidental activation when the noise from the phone alarm would cause a disturbance.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed The activation button on this fob is neither recessed or covered in any way to prevent the trigger button being pushed (in pock by coins etc., backpack by whatever etc.) which does two things: 1)exhausts the battery if the phone or other connect Bluetooth device is not nearby and/or 2) triggers the phone finder inadvertently, which to say the least is not an appreciated feature. In order for me to carry this fob I will have to put it into a container where nothing will contact the trigger button or leave it right side up on a table/shelf/dresser. It is little wonder that this device was on sale for 1/2 price. If you buy this item, also buy a boatload of 2032 batteries - you will need them. In my opinion, this is just a poorly designed piece of junk.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay I bought this for my mom because she constantly misplaces her keys, and makes her incredibly frustrated when she is getting ready to go in the morning. The issue that we have had with it is that if the keys go out of range of the phone, they don't always reconnect. I had to reset it twice. So that isn't exactly ideal. When in the proper circumstance, keys misplaced in the house, phone is often in the same room, it works just fine. But it is annoying when they un-pair and don't reconnect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far its ok I am using it to track wandering toddlers. The response time is not bad for what it is, but the UI is a bit simplified. I would like to see some more customization for the volume of the unit and a sensitivity option for distance? It took a long time and many many multiple attempts for the unit to sync with their software. Following their setup instructions get you close enough to hack through setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps me find my phone in a busy day..!!! I usually move here and there in the office to see clients and talk to the customers and end users, wherever i go i just keep my phone there and moves out without realizing the fact that i left it there. after that i bought this device i never moved out without my phone. really a great product. reminds me to take my phone and i can also track my car keys with it. i love to buy another for the same price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great invention. My mom keep losing her keys and phone. This is a great solution. The range is ok ... About 2 rooms. In order to find the lost item you have you be in the same room. Proximity meter is helpful. But gets annoying as it starts when any is devices leave range ( which is short) ... Better range .. Much better device. But useful anyway
