I missed this announcement from HTC in August. HTC has announced a new accessory called HTC Fetch which looks a lot like the upcoming Nokia Treasure Tag. It is also based on Bluetooth 4.0 LE and it can be used to secure your phone and belongings, last seen tracking and remote camera shutter.
If you’re tired of losing your phone or leaving it behind, the HTC Fetch is your solution. Just press the button and the sleek, compact keychain device activates your phone’s ringtone within 15 meters*. Pair it with your phone and you’ll get a warning beep if you leave it behind. If you lose both, a convenient map location feature lets you know where your HTC Fetch and phone were last together.
Nokia is also going to reveal a range of Bluetooth 4.0 based accessories for its Lumia devices at Nokia World in October. One such Bluetooth 4.0/NFC accessory is called “Treasure Tag” which will pair with Lumia Windows Phones via NFC and will come with a with a loop strap to attach it with other items. This accessory will allow Windows Phone users to track items with a special application. This special app will display the location of the sensor on a map Nokia’s LiveSight augmented reality view. The sensor can also trigger a notification sound on a phone, if it’s within range.
See a video demo of the HTC Fetch after the beak.
