How often do you place your keys somewhere around and then you have to go looking around all the place to find them as you have forgotten where exactly you have placed the? Some of us often forget important items and then spend a lot of time looking for them just to find out that they were let at the most unexpected place or were right in from of our eyes all the time and we did not see them. Fortunately there are actually quite a lot of different “smart tags” that are designed to be attached to important items such as keys and help you locate them faster and easier. This can even go beyond looking for your keys or bag to things like tracking your pet cat or dog, so that it will not be lost.
