Keep losing your keys? Not anymore

Keep track of everything you cannot afford to lose with nifty Orbits to call you to their location – wherever and whenever. Laptops, wallets, mobile phones, cameras and keys will never go missing in action with Orbit, a family of Bluetooth trackers.

Now in South Africa, thanks to Gammatek, a leading distributor of branded technologies and accessories, Orbit is the ultimate portable possessions locator. Linked with the downloadable Orbit App, an Orbit – stuck on valuables or attached to keys – makes anything that is lost, found.

According to Gammatek’s Zev Cherniak, there are three varieties of Orbit available in South Africa: Orbit Stick-On, Orbit Card and Orbit Keys.

Orbit Stick-On is perfect for remote controls, laptops, mobile phones, tools, guitars and more. With the keyring attachment, it can be used on house and car keys, backpacks, luggage and cameras. Orbit Card is a non-obtrusive card that can be slipped into a wallet or purse, while Orbit Keys is designed specifically for keyrings.

“Using the app you can make your Orbit ring or check its last known GPS location. All of your Orbits can be tracked using the Orbit App. Orbit can also find your phone by making it ring even on silent. An added bonus is that Orbit can be used as a selfie remote,” says Cherniak.

This puts an end to frenzied searches for misplaced valuables. To locate something that is missing, simply press the “Find Orbit” button on your mobile phone. If in range, the Orbit will play a melodic tune to alert you. When out of Bluetooth range of 30m, you can locate the missing item by means of its last known GPS location using the Orbit App. If it is your phone you are seeking, press the button on the side of your Orbit Card, Orbit Stick-On or Orbit Keys and it will make your phone ring. To take a selfie or group shot, open the in-app camera and use Orbit as a camera remote.

The Orbit Stick-On is powered by a replaceable CR2025 3V battery which can last up to a year. Orbit Card comes with a charging cable for recharging, and will  last about three months once fully charged. Orbit Keys is also powered by a replaceable battery.

Orbit is made available by Gammatek at leading retailers in South Africa. These include selected Vodacom stores, takelot.com and Loot.
