Japanese tech giant Panasonic today launched “Seekit” a new product from the company’s India Innovation Centre, a portable and sleek Bluetooth tracker allowing users to simply tag their valuables.
Seekit features a Separation Indicator, Proximity Guidance, Last Seen Location, Bi-directional Tracking, and Voice Alerts with High Alert Mode for tracking; Low Alert Mode to avoid unnecessary alerts.
Seekit will be available in two variants, Seekit Edge and Seekit Loop, and is priced at Rs 1599 and Rs 1299, respectively. The portable tracker will be available at e-commerce platforms starting first week of December. And since it harnesses Bluetooth and GPS, Seekit doesn’t requires charging and can last for 12-18 months.
According to Panasonic, the Separation Indicator feature alerts the user as soon as the valuable is disconnected, reminding that the valuable is being left behind. These alerts can be customised in the user's own voice too. And with bi-directional tracking feature, not only does the Seekit help you find the tagged belongings but you can find your phone too by just double pressing the button on the tracker.
The Proximity Guidance would guide you towards your valuable. If you leave your phone behind, Seekit will Buzz and Glow reminding you to go get it.
If the Separation Alert is missed, you can just open your Seekit app and check the Last Seen Location of your disconnected valuable.
“In case of theft, the Seekit Community of app users can trace the valuable with the help of Crowd GPS technology. Just by pressing the button on Seekit thrice you can send an SOS Alert to 3 contacts with your GPS location. The Seekit device also comes with a Selfie Button, eliminating the struggle to find the perfect angle and click it,” Panasonic said.
"We are largely focusing on both IoT and AI based solutions at our India Innovation Centre. The launch of Seekit is strategically aligned to our objective to create a smart and connected ecosystem. This is another step towards developing technologically advanced and convenient solutions for our consumers,” added Manish Sharma, President and CEO Panasonic India and South Asia.
