LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The world’s thinnest and smallest Bluetooth trackers will be unveiled by Australian wearable tech company HButler, via its brand Orbit, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 5th to 8th, 2017.
All Orbit products help you find what you need, when you need it, by using Bluetooth tracking technology and the same free cell phone App which locates the connected device by making it ring when in range, or by showing the last known location when it is out of range. They can also locate your cell phone by making it ring, even when it is on silent. Most Orbit products also have a “selfie” option to operate a phone’s camera remotely at the click of a button.
The new range will build on Orbit’s popular existing Bluetooth tracking product, the Orbit Keyfinder, by launching a range of world-first custom fit technology: Orbit Wallet, Orbit Card, Orbit for Glasses, Orbit Powerbank and Orbit Stick On.
Orbit users will also now have access to Orbit Net, a “crowd finding” tool which uses other Orbit App users’ phones signals to locate the lost device if you have registered it as lost – forging a community of unaware good Samaritans!
About the New Orbit Range:
Measuring just 0.2” by 1.2”, the world’s smallest Bluetooth tracking device, the Orbit for Glasses (MSRP US$29.99), will ensure customers never lose their glasses again. Users access the free App on their cell phone to make the tracked glasses ring, or, when out of range, access a map showing the pair’s last registered location. The device has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to one month per charge and built-in speaker.
Sticking with world firsts, the Orbit Card (MSRP US$39.99) will be the thinnest in the market, at just 0.04”. Equalling the size of the average credit card, the Orbit Card slips into any wallet and, like all Orbit technology, can be tracked via the free App.
A sleek, genuine leather Orbit Wallet (MSRP US$109.99) will also launch at CES, putting one of the world’s most high-tech wallets into the market. The Orbit Wallet offers RFID blocking for credit card security, has a built-in Orbit device for locating when lost, as well as a selfie remote, separation alarm and a function to locate your cell. Orbit Wallet owners will never be left without power again, with its built-in 2500mAh battery, allowing at least one full recharge, and a micro-USB and lightning adapter to suit a wide range of smartphones.
Suitable for any item you can’t afford to lose, Orbit will introduce the Orbit Stick-on (MSRP US$24.99). The stick on is used in the same way as all Orbit location devices, but its adhesive backing and compact 1.2” by 1.4” size means it can be safely secured to TV remotes, laptops, backpacks, luggage, or instruments.
Available in four eye-catching metallic colours, the Orbit Powerbank (MSRP US$49.99) can recharge all devices and can be tracked using the Orbit Bluetooth technology. The Powerbank also sends a recharge reminder notification to users when the battery gets low.
The Orbit Keyfinder (MSRP US$29.99) continues to be a popular best-seller, with its premium aluminium and waterproof casing. The Orbit Keyfinder is also now available in a full spectrum of beautiful colours from classic neutral Silver, Gun Metal, Rose Gold and Black to gorgeous shades like Azure, Shocking Pink, Emerald Green, Violet, Sunset Orange, Candy Red and Dark Storm.
