Losing you wallet sucks. Even if you’re not in the habit, but have merely misplaced it once or twice, losing your wallet is an easy way to put a damper on your day. Or week, or month. That’s why Ekster Ultra Slim Trackable Wallets look like such a good idea.
Ekster Smart Wallets are made of premium, top-grain leathers from Germany and the Netherlands. Our choice, the Parliament, is a classy bi-fold offering room for up to 9 cards and several cash bills. There is the (newly) obligatory RFID protection, to keep your identity and financial information safe.
But the real reason you’re looking at one of these, is the tracking ability. The Ekster comes with a solar-powered tracker card, powered by TrackR technology, that lets you know where your wallet is at all times. It connects via Bluetooth 4.0 to your phone, and is compatible with both iOS 7 and Android 4.3 and up, with a range of up to 100 feet. The tracker can remind you, on your phone, where the last place you saw your wallet or put it down was. If it’s nearby but you can’t find it, the two-way ringer will help alert you to it’s location. And should you have trouble finding it, the wallet will automatically alert you whenever one of the 5 million other TrackR users walks within range. And as it is solar-powered, the battery only needs about 3 hours of light to last an entire month. Easy to charge, easy to use.
Ekster makes several different, attractive wallets to choose from: The Parliament we’ve highlighted here, the minimalist Senate cardholder, even an Iphone case. All of them come with both regular and TrackR versions. If you’re forgetful and losing your wallet is a habit, these might just be the minimalist wallet you’re looking for.
