Forgetting your umbrella is a problem of the past with a new product which alerts you when you are about to leave the umbrella behind.
New York-based startup Davek has released the Alert umbrella which features a BLE beacon chip within the handle that links to a smartphone app, which tracks the distance between your phone and the umbrella. If the distance exceeds approximately ten meters, the umbrella will send an alert to your phone.
It’s compatible with Apple and Android, and the Davek Loss Alert app is free. The alert can easily be turned on, off, or paused with a tap on the notification.
