I’m blind as a bat without my glasses, and I can’t find them if I’ve forgotten where I left them. I actually had to call my husband home from work one day to help me find them. With the Orbit sensor and app, I could track them down all by myself. The Orbit tracker for glasses is small enough to fit on the inside of one of the arms of your glasses, so it won’t be visible while you are wearing them.
The tracker will fit a minimum 4mm arm width, and it’s not suitable for aviator-style glasses. It adheres to your glasses with 3M double-sided adhesive, and it measures 1.25″ x 0.2″. You won’t have to worry about sweat or rain, because it is waterproof.
The USB-rechargeable battery lasts about a month between charges. The Orbit app (iOS and Android) connects to the tracker via Bluetooth, with a range of up to 100 feet. The tracker has a built-in 80dB speaker that sounds a tone when you are leaving your glasses behind, or the app can have it chime to help you locate them. You can also see their last know location on a map in the app.
