Panasonic India has launched today Seekit, a Bluetooth based IoT solution to enable users to keep track of their daily items.

Panasonic Seekit comes in two variants, Seekit Edge and Seekit Loop, and is priced at INR 1599 and INR 1299 respectively. It will be available on leading ecommerce platforms starting December 1st week.
The Seekit features a Separation Indicator, Proximity Guidance, Last Seen Location, Bi-directional Tracking, and Voice Alerts with High Alert Mode for tracking; Low Alert Mode to avoid unnecessary alerts.
The Seekit comes with Bluetooth 5 and provides connectivity range up to 100 ft. linear distance under test conditions as claimed by the company. Bluetooth 5 allows communication with a lower battery consumption, thus enhancing the battery life and the fact that Seekit comes with a coin cell battery eliminates the hassle of daily charging. According to Panasonic, Seekit Edge has a battery life of 18 months and Seekit Loop has battery life of 12 months.
The Separation Indicator feature on Seekit alerts the user as soon as the valuable is disconnected, reminding that the valuable is being left behind. These alerts can be customized in the user’s own voice too, especially useful in case of multiple Seekit connected devices. With Bi-directional Tracking feature, not only does the Seekit help you find the tagged belongings but you can find your phone too by just double pressing the button on the tracker. Proximity Guidance would guide you towards your valuable. If you leave your phone behind, Seekit will Buzz and Glow reminding you to go get it.
If the Separation Alert is missed, you can just open your Seekit app and check the Last Seen Location of your disconnected valuable. In case of theft, the Seekit Community of app users can trace the valuable with the help of Crowd GPS technology. Just by pressing the button on Seekit thrice you can send an SOS Alert to 3 contacts with your GPS location. The Seekit device also comes with a Selfie Button, eliminating the struggle to find the perfect angle and click it.
The Seekit has portable ergonomic design. It comes in black color and weighs 5.4g (Loop variant) and 7.7g (Edge variant). This device is IP65 certified to give protection from rains.
