A few weeks ago at LITS I met up with a company called ZOMM who were demonstrating a little device that helps you located your phone. Intrigued I agreed to look at one a bit closer, so here is our two minute review of the ZOMM Wireless Leash.
The Wireless Leash by ZOMM will keep you from ever leaving your phone behind. It’s the perfect way to keep your phone where it needs to be – with you.
Wireless Leash notifies you of incoming calls and serves as a fully-functional speakerphone. Talk safe and hands free.
The Wireless Leash by ZOMM has a built-in panic alarm and can auto dial any emergency number with one touch of a button.

The ZOMM’s durable polycarbonate shell is lined with a thin film and sealed with an ultrasonic weld. A rubber dust cover is installed to seal and protect the micro-USB charging port. This has been done to enhance ZOMM’s resistance to moisture and dirt.
ZOMM will resist normal wear and tear while attached to a key ring. It has been designed to be heat, cold, dust, and moisture resistant and therefore survive the conditions associated with carrying it on a key ring, in a pocket or purse, or on a belt.
