Phone loss prevention

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my dad is catching up on age, he forgot to take his phone while out and about and realized too late. Good thing it was in the vicinity of where he lives and a neighbor found it.

 

I want to ensure this never happens again. Does anyone know a fool-proof solution that will set off an alarm when he strays too far from it? Will an Android smartwatch do it? I'm not familiar with smartwatches. If yes, I'd be looking for one with great battery life instead of fancy features because my dad is no Android power user, and I don't want to create yet another problem if he forgets to charge the watch. He's currently using one of them old fashioned watches. He has no backup phone and doesn't want to manage a separate device. I don't live with him either so I can't have a solution that requires me to constantly monitor.

 

Any input appreciated! 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Doesn't matter if its $100 or so

But does it have proximity alarm? Thats the main function I'm after. It doesn't look like a standard Android watch as it has its own specific Android/IOS app.
