    So you know that Bluetooth trusted devices unlock thing... I have no real desire or need for a smartwatch... so I was wondering... What's the smallest, least obtrusive, low power, "thing" I can get to do that?

    Like a wrist band that does nothing but that would be fine, or a little tag to throw in my wallet would be great.

    Any ideas?

    A fitbit or headset might work. Or maybe a Bluetooth speaker

    Fitbit could work but is a bit expensive for what I want. And a speaker or headphones are too big. I mean something I can always have on me.

    This, maybe?


    But, IMHO, fingerprint unlock is so convenient I don't even care about trusted unlock, except in the car. I just press the home button and rest my thumb or finger on it for a second, and the phone is unlocked.

    You could use an NFC sticker. They cost a little over $1.00 each. Find them on Amazon. If you're going to put them on something metal, make sure you get the ones designed for metal.

    Ooh I like both of those ideas... I'm not 100% if the Tile works for the trusted device thing though, but I just emailed their support to ask. And I didn't realize NFC could work too... Put one on my car keys and I'd be set.

    Fingerprint unlock is what I use, but it doesn't recognize my finger print ENOUGH (not a lot, but enough) times for me to be annoyed by it. To be honest I don't even want to use Fingerprint unlock but I know you have to have a secure lock screen to be able to use Samsung/Android pay and I especially hate using patterns or pins. I much prefer just swipe to unlock / no security.
