Here’s a Fun Fact for You
Using the power of these TrackR Pixels, I’ve managed to hunt down the military man who stole my wife and broke my heart. I type this to you from my car. I am outside of his home. Watching. Waiting. Under the cover of darkness, I shall approach him. God forgive me for what I must do. If you do not hear from me, I wish you nothing but the best. Although, you should be able to track me down using your fantastic TrackR Pixel devices.
Of the last 4, I have used 2. Replaced the batteries using the duct tape method, no need to squeeze at all to replace the CR2016 battery in each. Don’t care about history, I usually just leave my wallet and keys in strange locations in the house, so these work well for me.
In for another set.
But I still bought duct tape today, just because it bothered y’all so. I’ve “borrowed” an adequate amount of paper clips from my old job, I do own WD-40 (it doesn’t expire, right?), and I didn’t see the coconut oil rec before I went to the store.
I’ve implanted these in my toddlers shoes. It’s not perfect and won’t replace being a good parent and keeping an eye on your kid but it’s a little extra layer of piece of mind. Just make sure to replace the batteries they come with; two of mine were DOA and the rest only lasted a week or two before the batteries were showing up as ‘need replaced’ in the app.
Exactly - and the crowd-sourced network of fellow users (let’s be honest, primarily made up of Mehtizens for this model) is far too limited for that part of the “locate it” environment to be effective. Go Tile for that potential.
Are you like me and absentminded forgetting your wallet/purse as you walk out the door? Fear not TrackR to the RESCUE!!
In all seriousness though I only reason I bought these was for the “You forgot me” feature…
As I’m always forgetting to grab my wallet before leaving my room in the morning then I get busy and go to take my girls to school and run earbuds forgetting my wallet and so soon as I leave the house my phone starts beeping as it’s lost Bluetooth connection hence letting me know I forgot my wallet again
So I have one in my wallet and one on my keys but only so I can call them when my dog decides he wants to play hide and seek with em again the other three are still in the box on the shelf
The app is great for “pinging” so you can find them when in your house. It is terrible for basically all other uses - if you have the alerts on for remote locating, it basically bothers you constantly. Help is non-existent, so I can only assume they gave up and closed shop (and sold whole inventory to meh!) So they are worth just about what you paid - I do not regret my purchase
(Side note: OK, you can see the last place they were located usually… so when you leave something behind, you get that confirmation.)
Just do not get these I got them last time and all of them did not work because the batteries are dead and when you try to get the free battery from the website it just do not work at all, total waste of money
I think I bought an 8-pack last time. Of the 6 I’ve opened so far, 2 of them had bad batteries. #1 has been working fine for a couple months or so. #2’s battery died after only a few weeks. #3 and #4 seem to be fine so far, but I gave those to my mom, and I’m not sure she’ll know if the batteries die. I opened #5 to replace #2, and its battery was dead right out of the package. #6 seems to be ok, but it’s only been about a week since I activated it.
But even if all them came with dead batteries, it’s still a good deal. The 5-pack from Meh costs as much as the regular price for a single Trackr, and you can get a 15-pack of replacement batteries on Amazon for $6.
To the person who said the remote locating alerts bug you all the time: I don’t think it’s meant to be left on all the time. Just turn it on if your item gets lost, so it will let you know if it gets located.
Got the 4 last time. Had not figured a use. I think I might try sticking one on my roomba that gets lost under furniture or other rooms sometimes. Can ping instead of searching all over. Not much of a use but better than anything I have come up with yet.
I bought these last time, and they work great, at least for finding things, not necessarily the tracking aspect; much better than the Tiles I bought previously and returned.
Because they also work in reverse, you can use them to find your phone. Or, even better, you can install the app on someone else’s phone, make the associated sound a fart clip, and turn your spouse/friend/parent/child’s phone into a fart machine. If done properly, they may never figure out what’s going on. It’s awesome. They should make the description, “Back on track: Fart Machine!”
I scooped up 2 packs of these, WTH. Compared to AMZ’s pricing & the sales tax my state getchas, Meh’s a good deal pricewise. As to these widgets? Let’s just say I’ll test every single one of them before I glom onto stuff & just buy a mass qty of CR2016s. Have on hand my duct, masking, frog, Scotch AND gaffer’s tapes. I have tools I use to open up watches to replace the batteries, but I don’t think it a hot idea for thin plastic discs. Swiss Army Knife?
(bawling-earthy-temper) I’m in for two more orders, I’ve only opened up two of the four that I got last time and they seem to work fine and the batteries On both of them were not dead so I’m two for two so far…
Doesn’t work, not like they are hyped. It’s only a good as your local Bluetooth range. I bought under the original Kickstarter. Wanted these to work - very disappointed and not surprised to see they sell for less than the price of the batteries you’d need to buy to keep them working. Try PING if true tracking is what you need and they too fall short - and require a subscription fee each.
in reading some of the other comments about these things, while i see the point, i disagree. the dead battery issue wasnt so much the problem as the life span. at this point, i received my 4 pack mid sept, and put one to use soon there after. it’s warning me of dead battery last night, 10/14. so less than a month of use, though i never actually had to track my keys yet. oddly, the 1st gen i have lasted longer w/ it’s original battery but replacements are about the same. so, imho, unless you want to replace batteries that often, as neat as this idea is, maybe just learning a skill like remembering your keys may be a better choice. at one point, i had attached one to my father’s remote as he was always dropping it and the nurses were always kicking things under the bed or dresser etc.(a specifically useful aspect of this device not exactly akin to misplacing things) very helpful to use the locate on that, until the replacement batt died…
will see about the ‘free’ replacements and maybe post further.
First of all, i paid $20 for 8 of these things, and now you’re selling 5 of them for $6? I want a refund.
Anyway, every one I’ve used so far has had either a DOA battery, or it died within a month. I have no idea what the actual battery usage is, but I’m going to assume i just got crappy batteries.
I tried to order replacement batteries through the app, but through a series of convoluted steps, I ended up with 2 batteries in my cart. There’s no way to remove anything from your cart. It won’t let you check out with 2 batteries in the cart. So I’m out of luck.
I emailed customer service, and surprisingly, they responded. Even more surprising, they offered to send me replacements… FREE. Great! So I waited… And waited… And sent follow up emails, that were sometimes eventually responded to, sometimes not. Last time i heard from them was August 7. I figured, I’ll never hear from these guys again. Right?
WRONG! Yesterday, I receive 2 packages from Trackr, containing 16 new batteries! If that doesn’t renew your faith in humanity, well then i don’t know what will.
These Trackers are a scam! It is next to impossible to open and one of them actually fell apart when I removed them from the packaging. They charged $5.00 shipping and handling so there not even worth the return postage. If you are expecting a good deal forget it. This is like dealing from the bottom of the deck.
Installed and worked right away. Looks great. Batteries come with it are low and need replaced. They’ll give you a free battery but you have to pay for shipping. CR2016 is that batter which I can get on Ebay. Hard to open battery compartment…but I’ll get it figured. Price is good.
@kab take 2 rubber gloves. Put them on your hands. Place the trackr on your palm sort of close to your thumb. Place your other hand over it. Press gently but firmly if that makes sense then twist. Viola. Your tracker will either open perfectly or crack into pieces depending on how strong you are.
numb-sneaky-swashbuckler was a terrible purchase. Almost every trackR had dead batteries on arrival. Inconvenient, but no problem they offer free battery replacement right? Ehhhh sorta. They offer “free” battery replacement but charge more for shipping than the batteries cost at a drug store.
So hey, I need to replace 7 or 8 batteries so if I get a “free” replacement for all of them, then pay shipping - I can feel good about that. WRONG. Now I’ve got 10 batteries in my cart, and it just gives me an error saying that order must be exactly 1 battery. And there’s no way for me to empty my cart (the delete button doesn’t work) so now I couldn’t pay for a battery even if I wanted to. Every time I click the “replace battery” button when it alerts me I have low battery, the cart gets bigger. Cool.
So I suck it up, go to the drug store, buy some batteries. I put a Trackr in my wallet and on my keys to try things out. I drive to the office and carpool with my team for a work trip, leave my wallet in the car, get no alerts. Well shoot. Now I’ve got 2 days with no wallet. Thought I had an app for that… that worked swell.
Once I’m back at home, NOW I’m getting lost wallet alerts… while I’m walking around the house with my wallet in my pocket, and my wifi set as a safezone to NOT have alerts.
I contacted customer support about the battery situation, but they are not replying to me. So I’m uninstalling the app to silence the lost wallet alerts. I know where my wallet is.
