The Wuvo Spot is a Bluetooth tracking device that helps you to track your items easily and conveniently. It is small enough to be attached to anything that you don’t want to lose, discreetly and it offers some neat features in regards to the app that can make finding your lost items a breeze.
Design & Functionality:
The Wuvo Spot is small and compact. Its dimensions are the following: 33mm x 5.4mm. Plus, it does not weigh much as it only weighs 3 grams. So, size and weight will not be an issue when attaching this device to any of your valuable belongings. The design of the Wuvo Spot is simple, yet sophisticated. It has a circular form or shape with a textured top and is in the color white. A key ring, adhesive sticker, and a small tether have been included with the Wuvo Spot in order to make attaching the Wuvo Spot to your valuable items or belongings effortless. On the bottom of the Wuvo Spot there is a tiny button that when pressed will activate the Wuvo Spot. There is also a dip or slot that is used to help remove the battery so that you may replace the battery once it has been depleted. The last thing that is on the bottom of the Wuvo Spot is a unique ID code. This ID code is imprinted on there to help others return your Wuvo Spot as they enter this ID code on the Wuvo Spot website along with their contact information so that you may contact them and retrieve your Wuvo Spot back. On the side of the Wuvo Spot, there is a small opening, which is where the small tether will be attached to. The Wuvo Spot utilizes a replaceable CR2032 coin cell battery. It utilizes BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology to communicate wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet devices. The Wuvo Spot functions in conjunction with an app that is downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet. The app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices (iPhone 4s & later, Android 4.3 or above).
The app is very simplistic and appealing. The overall design and user interface is clean, professional, and user-friendly. The app offers numerous features that make utilizing this app beneficial and useful. For example, the app provides features such as find items, separation alerts, last known locations, marking items as lost, multiple items tagging, and item sharing. The find items feature turns your smartphone or tablet into a radar tracking device that lets you know when you are near or far from your lost item. Plus, a beeping sound will also be played on the Wuvo Spot to help indicate to the user where the lost item is. The separation alerts will help prevent your items from being forgotten and misplaced. This feature when enabled will send a notification to your smartphone or tablet, notifying you that you are out of range from your items. The last known locations feature portrays the past four locations that you have been to recently. This means that you do not have to recollect your thoughts and try to remember the last few places that you had visited that could possibly be the place where you had lost your items at. The mark as lost feature allows others to aid you in your search for your lost items as others will act as a beacon intercepting the signal from your Wuvo Spot and transmitting this data to the Wuvo Spot cloud to where this data with the location of where your Wuvo Spot is, is then transmitted to your smartphone or tablet as a notification. Multiple items tagging is very beneficial when you have many items that you want to keep track of as you are able to track many items as easily as you would for one item. Last, item sharing allows others such as friends and family members to help keep track of your items with you. This means that you do not have to keep track of your items all by yourself which can be quite overwhelming if you have many items that you are tracking at the same time.
The Wuvo Spot performed excellently. The Wuvo Spot was able to track my item without any problems or issues. The Wuvo Spot efficiently located and indicated where my item was and if I was near or far from it thanks to one of its many neat and useful features that are available to use on the Wuvo App. The app functioned smoothly as there seemed to be no bugs nor lag during the initiation of a feature and switching between the different menus or features. Each of the features functioned proficiently. For example, the find items feature worked perfectly as I was able to detect and indicate how far or close my item was with great precision. Plus, the beeping function worked great as well since it pretty much helped verify the validity of the radar detection feature in regards to how effective and precise it was in locating and displaying the distance the item was from myself. The separation alerts feature functioned properly as a notification was sent to my smartphone when I was a certain distance away from my tracked item. The last known locations feature was able to keep track of the last four locations that I had visited and portrayed them on the app easily and conveniently. The Bluetooth connection between the Wuvo Spot and a device (smartphone or tablet) is strong and stable. The range that the connection can be maintained up to is about 100 feet. Anything further than that will result in some connectivity issues arising such as disconnection. Last, the battery of the Wuvo Spot lasts for a decent amount of time as it can last up to about 6 months before it requires a battery replacement.

For example, attaching the Wuvo Spot to your items will be a simple process or task due to its small form factor. The Wuvo App is what basically helps make this tracking device shine, not because it is used to track the items per se, but rather the features that it has to offer for the user.
