There’s no shortage of devices you can buy that will promise to help you locate your lost items, be they keys, bags, wallets, or something completely different. The problem is most of those devices only use Bluetooth, which means locating your lost stuff is dependent on someone with the right kind of app being in close proximity. Now Vodafone has one of those things, but with four different kinds of tracking to help you find all your stuff.
The Vodafone Curve is a keyring-sized devices that the network claims will attach to almost anything. The key difference compared to most trackers is that it utilises Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, and cellular connectivity to keep tabs on its location in real time – beaming current and past locations directly to the Vodafone Smart app on your phone.
Other features include a ‘Quick Alert’ button that family or friends can use to send a location update to your phone, IP67 water resistance, global connectivity, alert zones to notify you if the Curve leaves a certain area, and up to seven days of battery life – depending on which tracking method you opt for.
The Curve is available now in black or grey for £20, plus the subscription that keeps the tracker working in the first place. That’s £2 a month for 24 months, or £3 a month for 12.

How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
