In this video we have the new Nut Mini,
it’s a lost-and-found tracker, which works together with an iOS or Android
app to help you locate lost items. It’s the smallest and thinnest Nut smart tracker.
It comes in a pastel shade of green, pink, blue, or white. They supply the
Nut Mini with an adjustable strap to loop onto things, and with a 3m sticky Pad.
It has a one touch feature, press find on the app, and your Nut Mini will
sound an alarm to help you locate it. If your lost item is much further away,
then you can locate it’s last known paired position. Likely, where you dropped it on
the street map, on the nut app. The Nut Mini smart tracker has a bi-directional
alert meaning that if you walk outside of a specified distance of your paired
mobile phone, then the Nut Mini will sound to tell you that you’re about to
leave your phone behind. Great feature! To pair the Nut Mini to your phone is
really easy, just pull the protective insulation paper out, have your cell
phone in range, and follow the instructions as it sets itself up. Give it a name if
you want to, or choose from the pre-selected items, and that’s it.
I’m not doing a full review of the app because I explored that when I reviewed the Nut 2.
You can see that review by clicking the link above. I did notice one new feature
on the app however, which is called footprint. The app tracks and records
your location on its calendar. You might find it useful for you. Here we can see it’s
scale compared to the Nut 2. The Nut Mini is smaller and a little more
attractive, notice it doesn’t have a button, so you can’t press a button to
sound an alarm on your mobile, as you can with the Nut 2. But it does still have
bi-directional support, as I explained before which is proactive in sounding an
alarm on your cell phone if you’re about to leave it behind. It’s dimensions measure 36 millimeters
by 24 millimeters, and it’s just 5.3 millimeters thick. You can attach the nut
mini to a purse, wallet, camera, maybe a drone. It’s useful on your rucksack or
briefcase. Those are just a few ideas. So, maybe you’ve lost your favorite bear,
your kids favorite bear, no problem! Assemble an away team, launch your app,
click locate for last-known position, retrieve your furry dude, return him to
his quarters, an erect a level-10 force field around him, job done. One place
you’re not going to want to use your Nut Mini is on your car keys. The plastic
unit, like many trackers, is mostly hollow, and it’s suspended against the keys.
It’s going to rattle like crazy, and it will drive you insane. A quick summary of the
things I like best, first is the price. It depends where you buy.
I got this one for less than $8 as I was happy to wait for overseas shipping.
