How many times has this happened to you? You’re running late for school, work or another appointment. And about 5 minutes after you’ve left your house, you realize you’ve left your iPhone behind. Noooo!

Now for the rest of the day you’ll be disconnected from the world. No text messaging, no Facebook, and worst of all — no iDB. But you know, none of this would have happened if you would’ve had the Wireless Leash Plus…

The Leash is essentially a tiny device with LED lights, a speaker, and a built-in Bluetooth transmitter that attaches to your car, or house, keys. Although Zomm touts the product as a ‘Personal Safety Concierge,’ it can also be used to warn you when you are about to leave your iPhone behind.

There are two stages of the device’s alert system. When it senses that you’re separating from your iPhone, it starts to vibrate and its LED lights start to flash. If that doesn’t get your attention, the Leash starts to beep at incremental volume levels until it does. And because it uses Bluetooth, these alerts will start to happen when you get about 30 feet away from your handset. There’s also a free iOS app that allows you to remotely activate it from your iPhone in the event that you lose your keys. Cool.

The only thing there is to really dislike about Zomm’s Wireless Leash Plus is its price tag, which runs close to $90. But if you’re the forgetful type, and think it’s worth it, you can find the Leash in Zomm’s online store in a variety of colors.

What do you think of the Wireless Leash Plush?

    If I’m driving to work and I realize I left my phone at home, I’ll turn around and go get it no matter how late I’ll be. It may be horrible, but I can’t go without it, I feel naked.

    No text, no Facebook, no iDB. Lol who written this post. xD

  • I lose my keys more than I lose my phone. Is there an app for that?

    • This works for that. Read like the second to last paragraph. Last sentence says you can activate the device from your phone. The device is also a key thing. You can attach your keys too it.

  • It’s really useful when you’re a little forgetful, but it is too expensive for what it actually is.

  • I would never forget my iPhone, it’s like a wife to me (hope my girl doesn’t see this :D) so yeah, always in the pocket. 😉

    Waaay too expensive. Great idea. This needs to be done in much smaller scale, too.
    For example, people misplace their reading glasses or sunglasses. It would be great to have a device like this be a small tag that could be attached.
    Oh, the future..

  • You can get a wrist band that can do this and it costs a lot less than this

  • So now I have to carry around 2 things? What if if forget the Leash Plus?

    Leaving Bluetooth on all the time is going to suck that battery dry. This system won’t do much good with a dead iPhone.

  • I like that feature to find your keys

  • Isn’t there already an app for that?

  • If only there was a leash for my wireless leash 🙁

  • That price is totally out of line!!!

    I think I only left my phone 2 or 3 times behind, when I wish I didn’t, in my life.
