When we get even closer to a wallet, the Tracker app is notified us that we are near to the wallet. When I tapped on an icon to activate an alarm, it started beeping.

The overall design is superb; size is perfect to use with keys. We can use it as a keychain, but if it is still a bit smaller, it can easily fit into a pocket. A replaceable battery is yet another important thing that they have considered.
