    Default android phone leash

    Hello all! So recently my gf lost her iPhone at the school cafeteria (ik omg how could she) but she got her a new moto X and shes loving it. However I was wondering if there are any blue tooth devices or tags that stick to the phone then would alert her when she is out of range. Maybe a bluetooth thing stuck to her backpack then rings when the backpack is too far away. Or she can press a button on it and it will ring. Not sure if there is an existing product. I saw tile and sticnfind but they r mainly finding other stuff such as keY's and whatnot. So any suggestions for a phone leash thanks

    Always keep your phone on your person. I have not lost a phone yet! Sorry if my advice isn't all that helpful. ><

    The free apps AndroidLost and Lookout can make her phone wail like a siren and flash if she has lost it somewhere around her but can't find it. Or show its location on a map, etc. Obviously GPS needs to be on.

    How far is too far? In feet, or meters.

    Approx 50 feet, maybe a little longer. I forgot what the specs said
