Kensington Proximo Fob and Tag make sure you don't lose your iPhone, keys and other valuables

Mobile accessory maker Kensington announced Proximo Fob and Tag at CES. The useful accessory (actually few of them) is/are made to make sure you don’t lose your iPhone, keys and other valuables.

The Proximo Starter Kit includes the Proximo app, which is used to find a Fob (for attaching to your keys) and Tag(s) (for other valuables). By setting up a wireless connection between the iPhone and key Fob and/or Tag using Bluetooth Smart Technology, the application keeps track of up to 5 items concurrently — you can purchase additional Tags if you fancy so. Proximo’s App dashboard is “always on,” showing the proximity of each Fob and Tag. Pushing a button on the Fob or tapping “Find Fob” icon from the Proximo App dashboard triggers an alarm that helps you locate the phone, keys or other valuable items.

Sounds pretty simple and equally useful. The problem, however, is it worth $59.99, which is the money that gets you one Fob and one Tag with additional Tags selling for $24.99, each. If you answered “yes” to those question, go ahead and pre-order Kensington Proximo products from Kensington.com, Amazon.com or other major resellers…
