    Keep track of keys, phones and a lot more with the new Pixel TrackR


    Chad walked me over to visit the TrackR booth so he could show me their newly unveiled new Pixel TrackR.The Pixel operates like the TrackR Bravo to help you track and find lost items, but it's smaller, lighter, and – this is big --- it has an LED light! Yep, so now in addition to the a sound (said to be louder in the Pixel than the Bravo) the LED turns on when activated to make finding items in the dark easier. We didn't talk about it in the video, but there's also a new TrackR wallet 2.0. The company says it's one of the thinnest trackers on the market at just 2mm, or about the thickness of two credit cards. TrackR wallet 2.0 uses new carbon fiber technology to achieve its thinness while maintaining all of the functionality of TrackR bravo, including replaceable CR2016 batteries. TrackR pixel will be available to pre-order for $24.99 and will begin shipping in Spring 2017. TrackR wallet 2.0 will be available to pre-order for $29.99 and will be available in late Spring 2017.
