Mobile tethering

The exact distance that sets off the Zomm’s alarm depends on any obstacles between it and the mobile, but it’s enough to warn you as you get to the end of the driveway, for example. With its Windows or Mac application you can alter this setting to the short end of its typical 9-20m range. Here you can also disable audio alerts if you want.

Zomm

Keep it with your keys, or use its supplied belt clip

Being a speakerphone isn’t its main purpose and the sound quality is a little basic compared to dedicated audio add-ons but it’s generally usable and the volume can be adjusted using the phone to make it less scratchy. It also incorporates a small noise cancelling microphone.

Verdict

If you regularly misplace your phone to the extent that you want to spend £80 on a solution, then the Zomm suits this task, and there’s the added option of hands-free calling. I can’t see the SOS feature being a huge selling point, unless you’re particularly frail, where it would have some advantages. ®
